Legend Spy Shots

I have been hanging out with Jay in 中壢 (zhong li) for the past couple of days. On Friday I got my first view of the 2010 Legend. I can honestly say I did not want one until I saw the finished product.

Today Jay made the big mistake of taking me back to the factory, giving me a tour of the Legend production facility and then asking me to take some pictures of the finished white and black Legends for www.bansheebikes.com. That is like showing a crack addict where the crack is made and stored and then leaving the crack addict with the crack to take pictures of it. Or maybe it was more like being left with a camera and two swim suit models.

When Jay left me in the studio with two Medium Legends and his camera so many things flashed through my crack head mind. I could call a cab and be back home in Kaohsiung before he even knew I had made off with the frames. But then I did what any straight Canadian man would do with two swim suit models …

Why has the upper link of the black legend not the same colour as the lower link? Both links in anodized green would look awesome. But it's a nice looking frame anyway. I hope I can save enough money to afford one for the 2011 season.

Oooo, that black one looks sweet! Now if I can convince my wife....

Robert Dunnet said...

martin, just do it

Jarle Konings said...

I will never forget how awesome it was to take the mk1 out of its box when i got it, and just watch it for a wile. And now with the new mk2. Mmmmm, this is a serious peace of eye candy.

Can anyone say "Boyesen-Link" Moto design from the 70's

Brandon Turman said...

TJ, you're kidding, right? Neither of the Boyesen designs are anything like the Legend...
