He's at it again...

If there is one true hero in cycling, it is Graeme Obree. Read the book, watch the movie. They guy is definitely self-made and kicked the collective cycling establishment in the nuts when he broke the hour record on a home-made bike. And not one to rest easy, he's at it again. When companies spend millions of dollars on research to make bikes faster, Mr. Obree makes his own bikes and this one is a beauty. My favorite part of the bike is the drillium rear derailleur. Check out the full story on bikeradar.com for pictures of the bike. As they say (in full Scottish brogue), if it's not Scottish, it's crrrap.
