All photos taken at NAHBS 2013.

The answer of course is a stash of Campy seatposts thanks to the joke that ^ this guy claims to have started. We met YourFace at Frostbike, who said he was the one that started the trend. Something to be proud of? We’re not sure…

I think this is a seat post or have I missed something

larsv - 02/25/13 - 7:08am

Bruno - 02/25/13 - 7:16am

Mmmmm….Campagnolo Oldshool Seatpost is the winning choice of NAHBS builder ?

Chris - 02/25/13 - 7:35am

Can this be the end of the joke? Please.

Charlie Best - 02/25/13 - 7:37am

Without doubt, it’s an 1971 3-point Browning Frustrating Gimp Frammitz, very hard to adjust, but an absolute necessity in many applications.

Grateful - 02/25/13 - 7:41am

Is it a SEATPOST?????

chuck - 02/25/13 - 7:43am

I see a Campy saddle, a couple San Marco saddles, a couple Brooks saddles…

Jack - 02/25/13 - 7:44am

A wing wheel posterior support strut.

Michael-Vittoria Shoes - 02/25/13 - 7:49am

I’m sorry, but those who did. Those who did not do a super high polish on them should be ashamed!

Fatboy - 02/25/13 - 9:08am

That is clearly a Spacely Sprockets internal linear pull drum brake system, circa 1978

mirciu - 02/25/13 - 9:32am

Best post ever!

Chris S. - 02/25/13 - 11:09am

Wait I got it! It’s Dedacchi tube set, therefore it must be an Acme Bottle Opener

Chris - 02/25/13 - 12:37pm

For the love of god and all that is holy, my (deleted). Could it be a stash of campy seatpost porn?!

Definitely a valve adjuster for a 68′ VW

Gabe - 02/26/13 - 12:31am

As Stormy Weathers best put it on Sealab 2021: “Some sort of fantastic space age tubing?”

Jealoussauce that I can’t be at the show… NAHMBS, not Sealab.

EMBER - 02/26/13 - 5:08am

Your Face - 02/26/13 - 8:48am

@ATM……they’ll let us know like all the others. I assume I am looking at some cnc’d early 90’s mountain bike parts.

ATM - 02/26/13 - 2:40pm

@Your Face….what’s cnc? what are mountain bike parts? You sound smart. I hope you win….

ATM - 02/26/13 - 6:13pm

I see why he calls himself Your Face. Wishful thinking maybe?

Your Face - 02/26/13 - 6:16pm

And we know why your called ATM….

ATM - 02/26/13 - 6:19pm

@Your Face….. Fire and Ice. I think I like you. We should move to Switzerland together.
