      What thingies? You mean the red part, the center hub? Fusee Star wheels from Roval.

      This is the 1989 Brava I bought last year. It's a good ride. I have some eyes on much bling-er bikes right now though...(something finally snapped in my mind and enabled breaking of the 4-digit barrier on a bike )

      New Look 555. Yeah, it's the same one I asked about in a different thread. Thanks to you guys, I was able to get it at a much more reasonable price. I'm not crazy about the red tires and handlebar tape, as my old bike and most of my gear is in blue. When they wear out, I'll probably replace them with standard black items.
      It rides really nicely compared to the Giant OCR 3 it replaces.

      I think that it ties everything together quite nicely If red was one of the main colors, then yes, it would be too much. But the way that it brings out the little bit of red in the first "5" makes it work in my eyes.

      I disagree, I think black tape and tires with red cable housing would be the perfect amount of red... oh and one of those new flite saddles or the toupe saddle that's mostly black with a touch of red.

      I never thought about red cable housing. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      And a new saddle is definitely in order. The Aliente is way too hard, unless riding it will break it in.
      I swapped out the tires tonight for Michelin Krylions with a thin grey stripe. It definitely makes it look plainer. IDK. Maybe I'll keep the red tires and lose the red tape. There's just something about the combination of red tires and tape that makes it look cheap instead of cool, IMHO. But I respect your opinion too, Richard. Ya got me thinking. BTW, I was out in Pittsburgh this past weekend moving my younger daughter's stuff to her new apartment. Cyclists everywhere. A ride in/around/about Pittsburgh is on my list of things to do next summer.

      Me, get someone thinking, no way Where in Pitt did you move your daughter, Shaddyside, SouthSide, Oakland, Squirrel Hill? Is she going to school down there, Pitt, Carnegie Melon, Dusquaine(sp???)? My sister just graduated from Pitt this past April and I went down there a few times while she was in school and I really liked the city. I have wanted to bring down my bike but between her making me take her out to dinner everynight and going out to bars, I don't think i'd get much riding in

      This is my rig.... I like it. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] Would like a new wheelset though.

      i have this too! '07 and size is 56 which seems to be just borderline too big for me. got a shorter stem and seat is at the lowest setting. but i do like it too. crashed it twice though

      awful pic of the frame i just got yesterday.

      '04 Allez Pro 56cm
      for $250 came with the frame, EA50 stem, seatpost, stock specialized handlebars (i've got a set of thinner bars on now as the 42 cm bars are way too wide for me), Ultegra brakes, Dura-Ace front derailleur, cages, and Fizik Aliante saddle which i put on my Cannondale Capo for the time being.
      i'm probably going to build it up with sram Rival and who knows what wheels.

      My younger daughter moved to the same apartment where my older daughter lives in Bloomfield (Little Italy). Great places to eat within walking distance of their apartment. And a block away from Tessaro's (supposedly world famous burgers). Older goes to Pitt in the biology grad program. Younger just graduated from Kutztown University in May with an Art degree in sculpture. Kinda like a history or philosophy degree. What do you do with it? Dunno, but it makes her happy. She's looking for work.
      After posting last night I was messing around with ideas for the Look. I think I like the red tape with the black tires the best. The all black doesn't have the pop that it needs.
      I think the blue in Joe's Specialized works better than the red on mine. It's not overwhelming like I thought the all red on the Look is (was).


      Richard, good luck on your century this weekend! I'm sure we'll all want a play by play when you return. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Crap, I didn't see this thread and started a post just for my bike...sorry. Here are a few of mine. There are more now but I only have pix of these. All three bikes now have the Team Edition Selle Italia SLRs. Great saddle. The Fizik killed me. My core is getting stronger and stronger, so my positions are changing little by little as you can tell by the bikes.
      My newest. 2009 ADK/Pedal Force. Sram Red, Tune, etc. 14.9lbs with pedals and cages.

      2008 Felt F2 with DuraAce.

      2007 Cervelo R3, FSA, DuraAce. LOL, pic was taken when I was working on different set backs of the saddle.

      Wow dude, that's an awesome progression. I've seen a lot of guys in town (vegas) riding the Cervelo's from a local shop. I can't believe the pricing on those things (I wish I could)... the pure jealousy that lingers around me when they pass me up is all I can live up to for now. I'm checking out your build now.

      Awesome. It looks like your bike get's a lot of use! That's fxcking great. My tape has been getting very dirty as well. I ride it everyday now and it's been about a month since I got it.
