O Brother, Where Art Thou?



OK. Time to rethink the whole epic business. I think we need to draw inspiration from the original. Every epic since Homer’s Odysseus has been some sort of remake/adaption.
Homer: Odysseus,
-> Joyce: Ulysses,
-> Coen: O Brother, where art thou?,
-> Dantes: “Ulisse” (near the very bottom level of Hell)
-> Lord Tennyson: Ulysses
-> Clooney: (Ulysses Everett McGill):

The original epic. It’s a road trip, but with Sirens and a Cyclops.

I saw flash across the internet:
How many fully chrome triplets do you suppose there are in the world?”
Sometime one encounters a question so thought-provoking that it takes your breath away.

ChromeTandemAlmost but, not quite.

There we are:Triplet1

It’s hard to tell which side is big ring to the front:

Santana Triplet Chrome outfitted with Campagnolo Nuovo Record. 1988 build.
On ebay here.

The sale is for in-store pick up only. Always good to see seven chain rings on a bike. Especially if the big ring has 62 teeth. Imagine how fast this could go!

$15,000, Free Local Pickup: Chicago, Illinois.
Cycle Smithy, 2468 1/2 N Clark St, Chicago, IL 60614, 773-281-0444

(Epic? yes, this qualifies. Anyone passing through Chicago?)

    Yes, cheap if you consider the number of chain rings!
    And that the number of fully chrome triplets in the world is likely to be exactly one.

    Wow man. So right and yet so so wrong.

    At least it’s cheap!
