Michael Jordan's Eddy Merckx
MJ had a go at everything. Baseball, Golf and as it turns out - cycling. This is a 70cm Eddy Merckx corsa extra - obviously in red as per his Chicago team colours - I heard he had a white bike for away games.
Banned from all future Roller Races.
I'd heard a rumour as one often does in cycling that Gary Neiwand held the record for RPM at the AIS. 300 rpm with no chain. I just didn't think that was humanly possible and figured that over time, the fish that was a foot long had become as big as the boat. This is what 260rpm looks like - add another 40 in over a minute and you've got rendonkulously fast.
For those who like speed in general, and bicycles built witha theme in mind.
DJ's Gulf inspired Perkins.
A dodgy pic, but you get the idea. Once upon a time it was the 2011 World Keirin Champions bike - fork sabotaged from from Mark French's BT.

The cutting edge: 1996
Even after the typical 20 years required for fashion to become cool once more, this steed may struggle. A curio nonetheless.
Congratulations to the newly weds.
Hell of a weekend ahead.
