NY Bike Snob product review

Posted by Matt | November 15, 2007 | Leave a comment

Very much in the vein of ‘If Carlsberg did product reviews…’, the Bike Snob has just published his take on the Cinelli Neo Morphe handlebars.

It’s fair to say he’s enthusiastic about them. Yes, I know it’s about a product for a road bike (of all things) but I just wish I could write as entertainly as he can about my favourite subject. The review is hysterical and includes such gems as:

As soon as I picked up the Cinelli Neo Morphe I started running around the house in my underwear, pretending to pilot the Millennium Falcon and making laser noises before I even knew what I was doing.

That guy certainly has his own perspective on our sport.

Perhaps I too might be able to write like him? Maybe, if I was:

  1. the owner of a razor sharp wit
  2. one of those guys who is implausibly cool without really trying
  3. possessed an encyclopaedic knowledge of the bike industry

Unfortunately, razor sharp is a phrase rarely if ever used in my hearing, implausibly cool has me reaching for my lycra biblongs even if I’m not going out riding (ahem) and my reputation for forgetting things is balanced only by my ability to quickfire Google.

I’ll just leave it to the experts…

About the author

Matt is one of the founding Molefathers of the Muddymoles, and is the designer and main administrator of the website.

Having ridden a 2007 Orange Five for many years he's now running a YT Industries Jeffsy 29er and a Bird Zero AM Boost.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.
