I'm poor and destructive. that's why i dig Fetish. like most nerds i have too many (or maybe not enough) bikes but here's my 2 main ones.
Drunken Hammer of Doom my SS Fetish Discipline. Its my main trailbike but it serves double duty as a winter commuter when its too harsh for my roadie. Light, cheap, responsive and durable. i just swapped the Splice for a Tora. i love this thing:

this is Otis, my SAC. it's my commuter/beer bike/explorer. my first road bike. i couldnt be happier. gonna throw on some maviv's and swap out the CX cranks for 55T's for the MS150 this summer. PGH's so hilly they don't make much sense the rest of the year.

now let's see yours

OK, this is my road bike. Its an On-One il Pompino - fixed gear for reliablity and fun. Its used for commuting / general cruising around the city and some longer rides. And it has a beautiful pink Fizik saddle. :)

lovely saddle!

Here's the TT bike. I will have to take one of the roadie and the fixxer (one of the ugliest on the planet...)

Ja Ja, that's a power tap on it - hours of entertainment for your bike!

there's a secret stick hidden behind it somewhere. It's an obsessive friends handy work. He has more photos of my bikes than I do - and he must have an entire harddisk filled with pics of his own.

groovy, is that a master olympic? My fixxie is ~'95 Master Olympic in Word Perfect colours. uuugly!

Thanks - Nah, those arent my race wheels - tho I do quite often race with the power tap with a disc cover on now. Its heavy, but I feel is worth it. For the front I have a Shamal 12 spoke, which I love but am afraid it does not have much more life in it, or I often use a HED3 - and I also have a HED3 for the back, but havent used it in a few years now.

nope, it's a decor - doesn't have the flared tubes - the decor was the base model IIRC.

one day these paint jobs will be hip again :wink:

were the word perfect colours ever cool? hooooo... :) The paint on your downtube fooled me into thinking it was flared, shouldda looked at the seat tube!

Too bad I lost my original fork when it was involved in a car accident a few years ago - the bike was on the back of the car which slammed into a bank. I love those chrome forks, I will have to see if I can track down another someday.

Yeah, the HED3's rawk. I'm likely upgrading my Zip3000 in the next few days to a HED3 for the track, and i've got a 1st gen Specialized tri-spoke as my rear, but it's freakin' heavy!! I'm planning to upgrade it as well, and get a Campy 10sp-compatable cassette, and then i can ride these things on the road in TT's as well - woot!

The base bar is the Visiontech alu base bar and I got it from an online tri shop in the States, not sure which one, but they are available quite a few places. The clips I got directly from Hed. I really like the set-up as it is rather adjustable and on the low side for weight.
