Work Bike: Maurice’s Marinoni Jun 23, 2010

I love work bikes, in fact, I love them so much that it’s one of my new categories in the works. People love seeing track bikes on the street and the more time one spends on the street, the more character it gets. Take Maurice’s Marinoni for example. This thing is oozing with sexiness.

Check out some more photos below!

Yes, those are extra spokes. Not a bad thing to carry around with you, especially with the roads being in such poor condition after a bad winter.

The flat fork crown ‘Nonis are so gorgeous. There’s just something very classic about them.

A little surface rust never hurt anything.

Modern campy cranks to keep it rolling.

Again with the cast maple leaves.

In case you didn’t know this was NYC, I gave you a little context.

While I’d love to see this frame, as-is, with a mid-80’s Campy group on it, it’s still got a ton of character.

… and very clean lines!

    Such a sick bike. I saw it at BFF and I couldn’t tell it was a Marioni because of how well it was worn in until I looked at the seat stays stamped.

    great idea to have a work bike category, they have so much personality. one improvement would be to also take a photo of the rider and there bicycle, to show how the bicycle is a part of the persons personality.

    I really dig these types of posts. I like jdub’s idea of showing the owner as well.

    Yeah, but people like anonymity. Everyone on the internet is so quick to judge people, I’d rather it just be the bike ya know?

  • rdrey

    IMHO, I really like jdub’s idea, too. Maybe you could ask each person if they’d like to have a pic taken with their bike?

    Tracko, not the same at all man. You’ve got a better eye than that. I take my side shots so that the bars disappear behind each other and I’ve been doing that for some time now.

    Flop.

    While I read that the seat stay caps and fork crown are thought to be stamped or cast, they are in fact engraved/pantographed. Nice bike. I never get enough of seeing the Canadian Maple Leaf.
