NAHBS – Cherubim Midnight Blue Chrome Beauty

first_imgFrom the old-skool Campagnolo lever shifters to the wild chrome tube seat and handlebar/stem, this bike was one of the more eyecatching rigs at the show. Full gallery after the break…UPDATED: More photos added at bottom! NAHBS 2010 – Cherubim didn’t disappoint this year.  Although there were no torpedo-themed sloping top tube racers, this midnight blue and chrome masterpiece combines old and new with some very clever and unique touches. Rear shifting is handled by this downtube lever.  Before you check out the trick cable run below, take a moment to admire the lugs with inset painting.  Lots of builders paint the edge of the lug where it meets the frame, not too many also paint (or have) the edge where it meets the headtube.Say what you will mechanics, but this is one sweet hidden cable run.The gold chain and cassette up the bling level, but it all works together for an overwhelmingly attractive package.Chrome bar tape?  Actually, it was a little soft, so it is tape, but super shiny.  The brake levers are simply stunning for the presence they give to the handlebar.  Cables are run inside the bar until just before it meets the stem.The lighting at Cherubim’s booth, which was nothing more than a few cheap, multi-bulb floor lamps, was well placed and made the bikes seem larger than life with all the reflective chrome.Everything else you might want to know about Cherubim.UPDATE: New photos added below on 3/6/10. Some original clipless pedals.  The shoe slides in, then the rider presses the slider in to lock the cleat into the pedal. Some original downtube hand lever from shifters artfully blend the old with the new (above and below).last_img read more

Ventsi Hristov: They did not look for me from Levski

first_imgThe striker Ventsislav Hristov announced that he had not negotiated with Levski, but would gladly return to Gerena.“It sounds good, but Levski did not look for me and we did not negotiate. Last time for a few seconds I agreed to wear the blue team and now it would not be different despite the difficult situation in which the club finds itself, but not to comment on suggestions. “Time will tell,” Hristov told dsport. Hristov already has one stay in Levski. He came to Gerena in the winter of 2016, but left six months later after becoming a solid reserve for Babatunde Adenidji.Since then, the striker’s career has been declining.
