I've been following this Ebay auction and it's really blowing by mind. At $500 with 6 hours to go still. Seriously? Because I don't get it, what's so special about those? It's just an older 151bcd Campa Pista 165mm crankset in nice condition with a big matching chainring, bolts, caps and bottom bracket.
Weeeeell, I got similar set with 49t chainring (the kind with the special extra thick inner lip) and a British threaded BB, all in very nice condition. And I guess I'd be willing to part with mine, so I'll accept any offer above $500...
If you're feeling me on this issue, here's something you just need to check out: a rare 1994 Vitus ZX1 Aero Carbon road bike on Ebay. All Campagnolo'd out and with double 'spoks. Hot 'ish. Even if I start sounding bit too much like AlanWMD, I'm like, whoah, my head is exploding, dude!
So, while this movie is not particularly spectacular by any means, it exemplifies one of THE up-and-coming cycling trends for 2010 (especially since Cyclocross season has officially finished already): the Hipster Road Cycling. Mark my words.
Apparently Probikekit.com has discovered some cool NOS Italian vintage cycling kit:
"These items have come direct from the factory where they were made over 30 years ago and have been stored in an air conditioned building since being manufactured. Moa Sport, better known as NALINI, has been manufacturing cycling sportswear since the 1970's, running a complete manufacturing operation, from the research on new fabrics and manufacturing processes, to the utmost care for designs and style.
We have a very limited number of these items, so be quick, and don't miss this unique opportunity for owning a bit of cycling history."

Might not look like much but it appears to be Nocturno Culto from Darkthrone showing off his stone-cold wheelie skills, kind of in the middle of some dark unforgiving northern forest. On a menacing hybrid bike, no less. It also looks like he has a big black boot, or maybe rather a severed foot(!), on the rear rack.
"Kolelinia is a city fly attempt. We are born to move, this makes us alive. The transport is not only a transport, it has to be an experience! The quality of this process reflects directly on the quality of our life. Is it possible to achieve a completely new level of transportation with minimum resources? Kolelinia is a concept for riding our own bikes on a steel wire, a new type of bicycle-lanes…
This doesn’t replace the normal biking, this only helps in problematic zones! Could be a bridge type, a longer transportation line or a special designed and independent touristic line. Of course it is too early to talk about mass use."
