Mmmm love, love love….


I'll take one. It will be ideal for riding the 3mins from my home to the coffee shop in Mt Eliza so I can make the proper cyclists jealous.

Great job Dr K.

Should be pretty cheap for an old Giant MCR tarted up with tinsel :lol: :lol:

Actually, that disk looks funky.

Its hand polished alloy. Dr Karl now has no fingerprints (we ran out of 3000 grit wet and dry) and is considering a career as an international jewel thief.

It started out life as a Hed disc, was then converted to ceramics, thrashed Jester in Busselton, used in an off-road triathlon and finally covered in reflective silver vinyl.

So much more than a wheel...

I think it looks hot ! Is it a carbon giant MCR or an alloy BT superbike , If you could just cover the disc with vinyl then you could do a whole bike that way

Fugly. Looks like an aluminium version of the Superbike that some cats were trying to flog a few years back. From what I remember, the aluminium version weighed a ton.

Brad Beven rode one back in 1997 in the F1 series. He went alright.

Brad rode the original carbon version that was a BT [Bicycle Technologies] bike. These bike were made in Melbourne by the Sansonetti brothers. BT still supply bikes to the Australian track cycling team.

When this particular bike was outlawed by the UCI, BT sold the production rights to another group of guys that were interested in marketing it, as an aluminium bike to the triathlon market.

It never took off because it was way heavy, and by that time it was pretty dated.

The white bike he rode in the F1 series was made in SA not Melbourne. I only watched the interview with him this week where he is showing it and talking about it. TI groupset on it too.
