I was rather taken with the Vanmoof (http://www.vanmoof.com/vanmoof-no3) as a classy bit of design, and was absolutely gobsmacked by Cav's bike. I know he's a diddy wee man, but I had no idea how diddy. I was riding a bigger frame when I was 10.
The pics all came out dim and blurry, which was surprising for a hall filled with so many 1000 watt lamps that you could feel the Vitamin D being leeched out of your skin. That'll teach me to take my phone instead of my camera.
|This isn't a trick shot, Cav's bike is barely belly button high.|
|Cav, G and Alex Dowsett's jerseys.|
|The celebratory colour scheme that Cuddles abandoned after a few miles for fear of tempting fate. And quite right too, if you ask me.|
|Wobbly forks and stays, tubes that aren't tubular, grooves in odd places. Advanced? Yes. Cool? Yes. Pretty? No.|
|Sure, it's pretty, but it's what's inside that counts, and in the case of the Vanmoof , what's inside is the gears, the cables, the LED front and rear lights and the dynamo that powers them. Neat.|
