Many years ago all the best road bikes were more colourful than a drunk wurlitzer operator at a travelling fairground. Even these gharish machines appeared pale and subtle when compared to the brightly violent colour clash that was ‘de rigueur’ for the lycra-splattered pro-cycling teams of the 80s.
The 1980s was a time of vibrant colours, flashy fashion statements and doping officials who were no more likely to find evidence of doping than they were to correctly identify their arse or elbow if invited to point them out on a blown-up photograph the size of the Champs-Élysées.
Some say the 80s was a peak for pro-cycling. It was before the advent of the ubiquitous carbon bike frames and electric-shift transmissions. This was an age before GPS tracking, nutrition analysis or power meters.
Nobody in the pro-peloton during any time from the first ‘Le Tour’ till just a few years ago would believe that one day a team wearing black uniforms and riding black bikes would dominate the sport with such totality. In an age before marginal gains, winter training camps in sun-scorched mountains professional cyclists operated on a different rule book to those of today.
Our point? Nothing really. This is a product page for some topper looking Polished Titanium Stem Cap Bolts for Bicycles. We just like writing about cycling.
