Anatomy of a Photo: Roulin’ Dirty

After a long, hard day of dishing out pain to the peloton it’s time to chillax with der Homies. Here we have der Kaiser and Klodenizzle pimpin’ in the T-Mobile bus. Roulin’ dirty fo’ sho’.

// Anatomy of a Photo

  1. I’m thinking the accompaniment is more along the lines of:

  2. @ben
    Wow. Just, WOW. I actually expect them to do this.

    Ah, I had no idea Adidas was providing private-label stuff for Mavic. Allow me a second to brown-nose: I only recently found this site, but it’s a rich source of cycling knowledge without looking down upon those who are new to the sport, very nice indeed.

    As far as Kraftwerk is concerned, I would hope they would be bumping Der Mensch Machine (Deutsch version, of course), but I would also accept them playing the then-recently-released (if the photo is from 2004) Tour De France Soundtrack.

  4. Wouldn’t this be more appropriate?

  5. That is a bold lounging position when you are in white kit…

    Wow, the inside of that bus is awful. And yeah, I can’t imagine allowing that photo to be snapped. Bad idea.

    I just noticed that the crown laying beside the Lion King looks like someone added fuzzy trim to a Burger King kid’s crown.

    I thought pretty much the same thing when I saw the photo. Cipo must dig on the Whopper.

  8. Amazing Pics: made me smile…. Kloden and Ullrich “roulin’ dirty” in the team bus and Cipo on his chaise lounge: Taking Homophobia to a new level lol

  9. @Cyclops: That bug pics looks cool as well. Gotta go with the Centerlines however.

    @Frank: Great Jan/TT bike story. Would have damn funny if the seatpost snapped off while you were sitting on it. Meanwhile, security guard munches on sandwich looking horrified.

  10. The Adidas Adistar Cycling line was really excellent, I could stock up when Adidas and Salomon split and then Adidas discontinued the cycling line, the shops were liquidating it everywhere and I could get several summer and winter kits that will last me many seasons, the Adistar Arctic series is superb for 0-5°C cycling, the windfront for 6-12°C, the body mapping for standard weather and the airflow versions for hot weather are simply great. The shoes are also very good but I confess that I am liking more the SIDIs right now.

    Mavic took over the designs and they still produce good stuff

  11. When I saw the colors of this Element I couldn’t resist.

  12. @Cyclops
    Nice. I actually drive an Element.

  13. Did you notice the “V” all up in the grill?

  14. @Cyclops
    yup, and the “Obey the Rules” all ambulanced out and shit!

  15. It’s how I roll.

  16. That’s a sweet jeep.

  17. @frank
    How about one of these modified V-style?

    Wow, that’s pretty sweet. Those old Volvos were great. When I was younger (late high school age), I *really* wanted one of those angular Volvo 240 sedans, rather than a tricked out Honda or whatever the kids are into.

  19. So if you’re publicly considering a doping confession, have you not already confessed?

    Ha, I was just cleaning out some spam and saw this post. We actually saw that car in Oudenaarde at the RVV museeum during Keepers Tour.

    Just thinking about that this weekend, because someone a couple blocks from here has a slightly newer Volvo in almost the Molteni color.  Whenever I see it I fantasize about buying it from them and doing it up like that.

  22. Ullrich apologetic after drink-driving Swiss crash
    FUCKING IDIOT!! there could’ve been riders on the same road!
