    So I posted on this thread a looooong time ago saying I needed a "new old bike". Found my dad's 70s Dawes Galaxy in the garage over the summer and nabbed it, did it up and I love it:


    And on the topic of beautiful things actually, the above picture was shot with this camera my Grandad bought in the 30s and used in the war:

    To start us off, I want one of these. Badly. I can get 40% discount through our Cycle to Work scheme so am tempted for this summer.

    Here's my best road bike. It's about 15 years old now and getting a bit long in the tooth but was state of the art in it's day. I've had racing bikes for 45 years now (I'm 59!) and I think it will be a future classic. It's a Principia, unusually hand made in Denmark.
    It really looks something with the Rev-X 4 spoke carbon racing wheels in. (not these training wheels)


    I think bikes will always feature in discussions of good design because they are inherently stripped to the basics and the most efficient transport machines.
    My favourites are the 70's track bikes. No gears, no brakes, jewel like components, almost indestructable.

    I think the most beautiful objects were designed to perform a function well (this shows in the favourites so far)so I would put the Spitfire and Concorde near the top of my personal list. Possibly aerodynamics shapes and even hones beauty.
    Consider the streamlined steam locomotives built in the 1920's compared to standard locos.

    I must declare a bias in my thoughts as I am an engineer.
