Graeme Obree’s Bike

Cycling fans of this era will have a massive appreciation for Graeme Obree’s bike, for this video, and the data it reveals. Sometimes, beauty comes in the most unexpected forms and ways; like, a DIY bike made with washing machine parts that broke records and was banned.

To the question, “Which was fastest, the Superman or the Egg position?” Imagine how different bikes would be if Graeme Obree had any friends in the UCI…or if only his name had been “Francesco Moser”

Sidebar to the film: those Trispokes were crazy fast.

My daily shooter is Sony a9 with a vertical grip and various Sigma lenses attached like the 14mm 1.4 Art. Find more recommendations on our store page.
