Thought it was about time to make a new topic, and this video came in handy.

Everybody that have seen my bikes always goes something along the lines of "wow that's a lot of bikes", usually followed by something along the lines of "what do you use them for?".
Now I actually ride my museum pieces, and they're all kept in shape so I can pick any bike I like on a given day.

Now this guy has both Minitrail and yours truly beat by a mile.
I wonder if he's married :laughing-rolling:

Magura :)

I think he's married to Bicycle Heaven! That's an awesome collection of bike history.

Well, he sets the bar for being an accomplished bicycle collector: A 400', large scale model railroad, in your display!

We're waaay behind Mini.
The good news?
I'll show the Mrs this vid, and have her blessing for any future bike purchase, in spite of them sneaking into the living room.

Magura :D

Wife took me there a few years back for our anniversary. Great place but very odd. I won’t go back.
We had bike buying intentions and got a shirt. Nice guy and all just odd place. I’ll keep my pie hole shut and share a pic

I agree with Norton’s response.

In other news: Magura may be in interested in this. Came across it skimming the Internet.

Thanks guys!

Yeah, that's a nice bike indeed!
Looks rather familiar :D
Cannondale team frame from about 20 years ago, check!
Smuthered in Dura Ace 7700, check!
Spinergy Rev X wheels, check!
Contemporary bits, check!

Yeah, looks very familiar, if it wasn't for the fact that it's kids size (54 I think) :D

Magura :)

I never had one of those Cinelli Alter stems, maybe that needs to change.
They came with pinup girl covers back in the day.
