Prolly and Marinoni: Sunday Treat

Canadian Classic

It’s Sunday, which means that I should be watching NBA games or pretending to read.  I am, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to repost something from Prolly. He’s got a few pictures of a before/after paint job on a Marinoni Track, and it looks GOOD:

Chrome? Chrome.

If you stumble across an older Marinoni frame, jump at it.  They’re fairly ubiquitous in Montreal (obviously), and I’m thinking of tracking one down for my next build.

Anyway, it’s great to know that these frames get their due.  I’m hoping that over the next few months, more attention will fall on Canadian cycling and those who support it (there are TWO ProTour races coming our way, don’t forget).  Bad ass Marinoni track bikes are a good start.  Hopefully the powers that be will be able to use the attention that comes with hosting professional races to encourage increased urban riding.  If we could only convince Louis Garneau to drop their Rock Racking sponsorship
