The Velohottie has been taking pics of cycling related things for me to ogle over. Unfortunately, my imagination has me imagining everyone riding $7000 Bianchis and Colnagos. My imagination has been known to wander, but Austria and German are not the cycling utopias I imagined… well at least her photos are not showing me what I fantasize about.

Take a look:

All of these bikes could have come from a big box department store, or crappy sporting goods center in America. Where are the flashy names, pretty bikes, or hell, even the sharing bikes I hear so much about? My expectations were high, but I still feel disappointed with the bikes, not the photos.

Well, this bike is pretty cool. It too has fenders and a rack, but it just looks a little cooler. The crank is a dead giveaway that it is a crap bike, but I still think I would commute on it if I had to…. 😦

On a drive to a friend’s today, I saw better bikes loaded into vehicles on Rt.33 (the highway) than I did in all of these photos so far. There was a Toyota with three MTB’s, one being a Top Fuel EX, and a Cannondale Scalpel. I can’t remember what the third was, but it was a Cannondale also.

She has also been taking random pics of other things that I thought would share.

Here is a MTB trail in Germany (Usingnen?) The guy with his back facing the camera has some kind of indistinguishable dual suspension MTB, with Schwalbe tires on Mavic rims, and a Rock Shox fork. The bike is pretty serious with hydraulic brakes, a remote seatpost, and computer/GPS mounted on the stem… Wish I knew what the frame was…

Here’s some other things that she took photos of, like bike lanes, trinkets, and signage~
