    synthetic:legal for non draft triathlon

    Yes. Triathlon is not governed by UCI or by USAC, which actually made a concession a couple of years ago to triathletes who show up for USAC time trials by allowing sleeveless jerseys, the only cycling discipline to permit naked shoulders. Before the rule change riders with sleeveless jerseys were denied start in TTs. In mass start events, Cat. 5 riders who show up at the line without sleeves are still told to go find a t-shirt.

    There were many vintage bikes at the Eroica California Saturday festival and concourse de elegance. This 1936 Caminargent Paris-Roubaix probably stood out the most for me. The lugs are setup so that it can clamp and unclamp the frame tubes. Essentially, you can disassemble the frame for packing.

    Thank you. It was inspired by this bike:

    And these photos from the Jitensha Studio website (English) show some detail from before Hiroshi shipped it:


    That's a real beauty and certainly worthy as bike porn. I like the color also. The 650 wheels and touring set up make this gorgeous looker a functional, utilitarian bike commuter. I've been hoping to see this bike since we last talked.

    This is a very classy looking bike. C'est tres bon!


    Looks a lot like this bike from Jan's Blog at Compass Bicycles;
