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:
- the owner of a razor sharp wit
- one of those guys who is implausibly cool without really trying
- 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…
