    Default Landshark

    Tange Prestige?- take that as an opportunity to get a modern Shark.
    Know what would be cool? An update steel or Tube to Tube carbon with the same paint job!

    I have a little bit of rash and a sore wrist, but I came out okay. A car swerved into me, and I hit another car. I was in a rush because I got caught in a rainstorm, and I didn't want my Land Shark to get rained on. The irony!

    I'm not sure if it was the tubing or Slawta's craftsmanship, but the Tange Prestige Road Shark was the best-riding steel bike I've ever had (I must admit that my experience is limited, however).

    I would love to get a new bike from Slawta, but the bike fund is pretty barren right now, as I just got my first custom frame (which took me years to save for). Perhaps I will get a new steel Land Shark when I have the funds (I fear the tube-to-tube carbon will be out of my price range for quite some time).

    I'm currently just looking for a 126mm spaced steel frame to hang my Sante group on for now.

    Default Another lamb to Slawta.

    Ouch, WeakRider. Good that the cars missed you for the most part, tho. You should hang that frame on the wall; has a cool deconstructivist/cubist thing going on, and in that sense, it's more an art piece than before.

    And MarkC, that thing looks great. Unfuckwithable!

    Here's my boring, monochromatic Blandshark:



    This one's from 1991. It's sorta similar to Hampsten's '88 Giro bike, except for a few details (different seat lug shoreline, no FD braze-on tab, etc).

    The purple paint is kinda goofy, and it looks like a big, friendly easygoing Sunday Rider noodle with those 1" tubes, but I've hung on to it because it's pure, gutterbrawling race bike underneath. And I love the Jekyll/Hyde dichotomy it has.

    It's pretty comfortable on cruise control but it totally lights up when the road starts to bend uphill, and its stiff as hell when you jump on it. Lots of beef in the bottom bracket and chainstays. Any bike with those qualities I tend to keep.

    Default Prestige Shark

    What size? There is a 56 prestige shark on e-bay right now.

    That's very close to what I ride, but the seat tube is a bit tall for me. And, while I love gaudy Slawta paintjobs, the one on eBay right now is hideous! I ride a 53 or 54 x 55 or 56

    I just picked up a Davidson Impulse for $230. Tange Prestige. I will ride it and love it until I find another perfect Prestige Stark. Slawta told me that there must be 2,000 of them out in the world, so...

    Thanks for the heads-up!

    that shark has now made it's way to me, and though the build is completely new, looks pretty similar.

    great looking bike man.

    i'd listen to that voice telling you not to hang a little girl's purse off the front of a race bike.

    Is that the re-released Selle Royal Contour saddle?

    Love the color. John is THE master. I'm under the impression that he is doing more Carbon now than steel.

    ...and my Dirt Shark project that I've had on a hook for a couple of years. I have all of the parts... just not the time.

    Awesome 'Shark! Are your wheels Campy compatible R45s? I am in awe when I see these, as I thought they would never come. I am saving my pennies as we speak to buy a set.


    Enjoy the ride,

    Darren
