TBs TechTOC 08 - Racing Bike

Not that I use to post about MOCs. Very rarely, except those in the weekly TBs TechVideo series, but...
Someone thought I would find this interesting, and I think you'd too.

Click on the images to enlarge and see the details.


You can find it at BrickShelf and it is labeled as a 1:3 scale racing bike. In fact it looks to me at a smaller scale, but who cares.

It is absolutely awesome for the details and originality!
Amazing the hub and the brakes made with the old Technic Flex System. Just wish it would come back...

That's a great MOC! It reminds me so much of my bicycle, even though mine isn't a racing bike. :P I'm not so sure about the red plastic tires though. I would have chosen to use some of those black rubber 1x2 TECHNIC joiners instead.

This Bike is fantastic!

Looks nice but I don't bending of parts.

Conchas said...

Maybe not exactly bending, but taking advantage of parts tolerances.

Toa - if black rubber 1x2's were used, then the wheels would almost certainly be floppy and clumsy, with the 1x2 half liftarms, the tolerances keep the wheel firm and sturdy.

Great moc!! I´m a bikeaholic, so this one is ecpesially interesting. Love the wheels and the brake.

OK, maybe not black rubber 1x2 TECHNIC joiners then. Why not black plastic 1x2x0.5 liftarms though? I don't remember seeing any bicycles with red tires...

I remember to see it, for the interior radius (closer to the rim). But not the opposite.

But now we all can see it, here :)

Red tires is not uncommon.

Great MOC, perhaps the best LEGO-rendition of a bike I've seen actually.

I'd love to see more MOCs here BTW, this blog is my only source of things Technic at the moment.

JAMS said...

they should try and add power functions to it

Conchas said...

Do do what?
Head and rear lights!?

Where to put a battery box, in such model?...

you could have two battery boxes and put them instead of the pedals, but they might be to big
