Bike Picture Time: Old Faithful

Graeme-Obree-Hour-Record

Zoom……

Maybe not the prettiest track bike but certainly one of the most  influential, the handmade bike won world champions and broke hour records. I have seen and touched this exact bike in real life and to see the time and effort put into it just for the few seconds the bike would save is quite inspiring  Details like filing down the crank arms to make them aerodynamic or bolting the shoes to the pedals to make them lighter and rigid. It certainly is a cool bike. If you are in Scotland pop into the National Museum of Scotland and have a look. It’s quite impressive, and if you haven’t read Obree’s biography you really should, it’s very good.
