Anatomy of a Photo: Things That Are Hard To Come By

Museeuw rockin’ the bands riding with Cipo decked out in yellow as he twists one up. There are only two things cooler than this and both of them are impossible to get. One is Led Zeppelin playing at your shitty graduation party in the late 70’s and the other is one of those awesome Coca Cola bidons. Fuck yeah!

  1. Replica Coca Cola bidons can be had if you can use a minimum of 50 – or maybe there should be a VBidon, surely any liquid contained therein would only be enhanced and therefore permit the inbiber to lay down more V.

    Spinassi?

    No, Spinaci:

    Just to help you to get a grip, he did wear a helmet once he started actually riding.

    EEK!!

    Yes, I know it’s Spinaci – it was a subtle dig. ;-)

    Thanks Oli – got it together now. Just jealous of his form, like all mortals. like your website ( some killer bikes on there ) and I have got to get over the ditch / go riding in NZ ……………bucket list scenes.

  7. Cheers @smithers, flattery will get you everywhere.

  8. @Nate
    Tell me you didn’t have that just lying around.

    Those aren’t bidons. They’re “enhanced hydration replenishment delivery systems”. I mean, what”s all that shit on the lid? Landfill, that’s what.

    I never realized the Nuge rode for Cinelli, let alone rode a bike.

    Mario had it in spades but even he struggles to pull of celeste shoes matched with full yellow kit.

    Some of the other shit going on is fairly shocking, Spinergy wheels and aerobars.

    They’re not aero bars; they are Spinassi bars. They were the balls in 1997.@the Engine

    Who’s the guy in front of the Spinergy man wearing my Time shoes? I still have them in the garage if anyone wants a suitably retro look to recreate this photo.

    My brother thought Spinergy wheels were cool and used them in triathlons – which tells you all you need to know about Spinergys

    Is it Frédéric Guesdon?

    @Sauterelle

    I have an awesome photo of Cipo but I think you guys wouldn’t appreciate it as much as I do. ;-)

    My VMH has just pointed out that the bike is off the ground – how the fuck did he do that?

  12. @The Oracle
    The original? Sadly, no. As for the photo, the internet can be a serendipitous place.

    @Marko
    Nuge was Cipo’s leadout man that year. He was the only one who could punch a big enough hole in the wind for the Lion King’s mane.

  13. @the Engine
    I’m guessing its tied to his schwantz.

    What bike?

  16. Well, that Cipo video wasn’t what I was expecting when the first words on the screen were “THE CHAMPION. THE POWER. HIS TOOL.”

  17. @Sauterelle
    You were expecting home improvements?

    @frank
    It was not that complicated. The owner of Cafe Grinta is a good friend of mine. We talked on the phone for two hours yesterday.

    Stop it. You’re killing me!

    Who’s the loser pussy with the helmet?

    Intelligence over vanity — always. Period.

    And, lid vs no lid flame war v1650 in 3……2……..1……….

    If it happens you can reach me via FB to let me know when I can come back.

    Something like that.
