This Tarini Euro, sent in by Peter R. in New Zealand, features the greatest of all—and my personal favorite—unorthodox bar configurations. The OG of homespun upright riding, the great grandfather of the flop n chop and the chop n chop n chop, and the root and inspiration of 30 plus years of wrongtoolforthejobsmanship that permeates our sport/hobby/life to this day. You guessed it, The Rotated Drop (or T’rd® for short).
Aside from loosening the stem and giving the bars a 180° turn, I think this rat has some potential. I would venture a guess that the rear wheel is not original. It looks like it’s off a hybrid/fitness/mtb, but definitely not OTS material. Peter, I have a friend here in the States that would kill for the selection of rats you seem to have at your disposal. What would it cost to ship this beauty to the St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A.?:)
HELP IN IDENTIFYING THIS BIKE IN NEW ZEALAND.
Hi I was given this bike today –A Tarini Euro or Euro Tarini. The crank sprocket has two gears.
a rear wheel was provided, without a spindle. However it had 7 gear sprockets, an allot hub and 26″ rim. Seems an odd combination ? That would make it a 10 + 4. But the small 26 allow rim wheel seems not right – can anyone help identify this? The h/bars have since been reversed to where they should be. Hand rubbers non original appear to be off a washing machine outlet..Dig the seat pads for boney butts ( :
Thanks again Peter
