Fashion photo shoot

The long-awaited shots of me, modeling a shirt from Alchemist Threadworks. Damn, I look hot (so hot that I believe I recall Jeff making a comment that my portion of the shoot was better than the portion with the professional model... boo-yah!)

Pay no attention to the thinning hair.

For what it's worth, Minh, that's your frame (the dark blue one), just before I realized there were bubbles in the powder and had to take it back. Doh!

The other frame is my first-ever cyclocross frame from 2004 or so. I am taking off the drivetrain to dimple a chainstay for better chainring clearance.

are you flexing your bulging biceps in the first picture. You must work out!

Your arms are so hairy that it looks like you have tattoos in the thumbnails.

Who wants to bet that this is the post that gets the most (mocking) comments ever?

I was actually trying to work on the bike while they were setting up, these were just photos that were shot to test lighting and stuff. The "real" shoot was with a real model. So no, I wasn't flexing. I think that one photo is just a lucky accident. No way am I that ripped...

They say the camera adds 10lbs, must all be on your biceps!!
I know Sarah can beat you in an arm wrestle.

damn, Walt! luckily your hawtness hides the fact that your biceps are as big as my wrists.. :}

Walt said...

Steve, I would last about 10 seconds on your handcycle before I fell over dead...

From the looks of the Alchemy website, you let the model wear your welding helmet?????

Walt said...

Um, yes. The model wore the helmet, and ran the acetylene torch with no oxygen flowing...

That was actually better than the part where they had me just try to cut through big steel bars with the abrasive saw to make sparks. It was pretty silly.

But on the plus side, Jeff (head Alchemist guy) and I have a fun plan for a very silly human powered device... stay tuned...
