Bike Porn V2.0

The previous version has gotten hard to follow and the meaning has become blurred.

The rules:

-Not your own bike, if someone was to put it in there
-Photos are to be work safe.
-If it looks jackass worthy it is not to be put in this thread.

If a bike is truly breathtaking, just works and the lines flow exceptionally well.

Examples:

and now for something different, german site so you have to give some leeway.












http://vimeo.com/34293503

VRZ 1. is a track bike frame with 3d printed stainless steel lugs glued together with carbon fiber tubes.

this method allows to build custom frames in a short period of time.
you could change the geometry to what ever you like, then the lugs gets generated by a software.
now we just need to print the parts finish them and glue the frame together.

The fork is 480 g and the frame weight is 1100 g (for stainless-Carbon Frame)! if we print the lugs in titanium, it will get even lighter.
The printed lugs could also be used with steel or titan tubes!

I was wondering what they meant by glued together, then I watched the video, and that's exactly what they meant.

Try looking at the context, it is an example of an older lugged carbon frame.

Even though the company itself has fallen under some scrutiny, I still think Superb has some very hot looking bikes.

This guy stole my idea. Except he pulled it off way better. It was the best I could do with a spray can and masking tape.
