I think it's a reall cool aspect of their culture. Where else can you bet on cycling? Imagine a sequel to the Triplets of B, except this time it's set in Jap keirin racing, with the Yakuza and samurai swords...

that is so cool. In the "What is wrong with this picture" section, you will notice its an old triumph. the next shot is the cyclist hitting some oil dropped by the bike and spinning off into the barrier. then the bike breaks down...

I still want a triumph twin in the worst possible way though.

oh yeah. here is Mr Thompson holding Ms mary very tightly indeed. 4nM tight to be precise

and 34:17 doesnt work without a tensioner sadly.

Go to your LBS, and ask for cassette spacers, they sit between the cogs in a casette, yo can harvest them out of munted old cassettes for minimal cost :thumbsup:

Here's some full shots of mine. Not very fancy, but fun all the same. Wondering about getting some Mary bars...

It's not seeing much dirt at the moment, but it did get a smattering of wet grass on my commute last week. :)
