Now what type of bike is Robin riding?
Good to see he is a campy man though :)...
Gotta be a C40. Star fork gives it away...elviento

Doesn't look like a colnago paint job. nmPaul

Perhaps a RoarkKristin

When I was at the Hilly Hundred last year I was chatting with a shop guy from Indiana. Their shop built-up a Roark for Robin Williams the year before.
Don't you mean rich bastard? ;-) (nm)mickey-mac

Looks like Ksyriums too, for the wheelset.

What could those two possibly have in common? Wouldn't it be fun to be a fly
on the wall when they go riding together.

Lance: Hey Robin, want to race?
Robin: I think I'll pass today, heh.

Outstanding cut and paste job. The shadows of the wheels don't quite match up. Amost flawless though.

Actually I think this is a real pic. Lance and Williams are good friends and have ridden together several times in charity rides for cancer
this is a real picture...here's the article link and excerptColnagoFE

A rest day leg-loosener for a professional bicycle racer in the Tour de France is a hard weekend ride for most people. Lance Armstrong, his eight U.S. Postal Service teammates and actor Robin Williams set out on a 90km, two-hour "spin" through the countryside of Vaucluse on Monday. After about 30 minutes, Williams took a right turn and flew back to Hollywood.
Yep, I find the training miles definitely go quickerdjg

when there's a trained, professional comedian in the group.
Why don't they let Robin call some races?Kristin

Now that would get the American Couch potato into cycling.
I hear he does tour de SF.SnowBlind

You would think that Robin Williams would convince some Hollywood execs to bankroll a Lance Armstrong movie. I don't know if he pitched crap-sandwich films like "Patch Adams" to the studios or vice versa, but Williams has some power and influence and has a bit of a market in the tear-jerker-inspirational movies.
Let's just hope he doesn't work on a movie about LA, but he probably won't because he can't find a role for himself. (As Bruyneel, perhaps: "Don't panic George!")
He'll play LeMond taking credit for LA -nmSnowBlind

He could play Bobkefirstrax

I thought people knew, Robin's the tenth Postie. . .js5280
Jul 24, 2002 8:17 AM
He's a comedy domestique. He entertains opposing cyclists in the hopes that the Posties can slip away unnoticed. Jimmy Casper and Igor Flores just can't get enough of the guy.
We are just all a little envious nmPhatMatt
