      Been years since I've been in here. Probably been that long since the last road bike picture post too.
      Most won't remember me so I'll post it again. This is my Steel road bike. It's built on a 1997 Colnago Altain with Columbus Brain steel tubing and Precisa Straight polished Steel fork. It has the WordPerfect team paint job which is a deep dark purple that appears black in the photographs. It's equipped with Campagnolo 8sp Croce De Aune commemorative gruppo including the Delta Brakes and Ergo levers.
      I've got the matching Wordperfect Team Jersey too!

      This is my other road bike. I bought this frameset in a groupbuy back in 2008 along with bunch of other people on this forum. Unsurpassed savings on a quality monocoque 3k weave Carbon Fibre frameset. The tooling is indistinguishable from the more expensive Fondriest RP3. The frameset is a mere 980g. I outfitted this with a custom made wheelset using American Classic Hubs and Velocity Deep V rims laced with Sapim CX-XRay spokes. I've always used Continental Attack/Force clincher tires. The gruppo is Campagnolo Chorus 10sp using an FSA Carbon Crankset. Nokon Cables and PowerCordz liners are for cables. Easton EC90 carbon handlebars and OvalConcepts stem and Fizik Alliante Carbon saddle, and Speedplay Zero pedals round out the rest. Total weight with bottle cages and pedals is 15.5lbs

      So how do you like the 2011 Tarmac? I am saving my pennies to hopefully pick one of these up at the end of 2011 when they are on closeout

      A Rabbit is not to be wasted on the tentative or weak. Only the worthy are invited, and then only at your own risk. If you have even a modicum of hesitation, DO NOT buy one of these cars. Instead, leave it for a worthy soul who has already matriculated to the sublime ecstasy of what those in the know refer to as a "MK1"

      fine, a drive side pic. Can't compete with some of the rides in here....

      Let's argue this the American way; volume, proximity, and repetition.

      Thanks. Yea, I used some vinyl and applied it with a little heat. The color isn't exactly matched but it was for kicks anyways.

      My 1981 Schwinn Le Tour that my friend converted to a fixie... I converted it back using bits off my GIGANTIC Bianchi Strada LX. So now I have an old Schwinn with an old 6 speed rear cassette, old 2 ring crank(I know it needs a chain, that's tomorrow), old Suntour derailleurs, new Ultegra bar-end shifters, new Shimano levers, and new Tektro brakes. Plus I have new Giant bar tape and a Fizik saddle on it. I have to say, it looks pretty sweet for a fairly basic bike I'm using to commute. Eventually it'll get a drivetrain upgrade, but for now it is the perfect inexpensive solution to a simple problem!





      I also just got one of these from my dad for my birthday/Christmas, I'd say it's a LOT better bike than my Schwinn!

      It's a 2010 Motobecane Sprint. It's a BikesDirect bike, but honestly I think the trouble there is more the website than the bikes themselves. This has full Ultegra everything, the frame is awesome(carbon fork and stays) and only weighs 19.75 pounds! I love it, and now my dad and I match!

      Bike looks pink

      I love my Look! Mine isn't as fancy.... but still a great bike overall

      Hahahaha.....yeah, it does! I guess that is one of the limitations of the iPhone.....and the lighting in my place.

      I've been lucky enough over the years to ride some of the highest end frames out there, Colnago, Specialized S-Works, Merckx, Cervelo, Scott, Trek and Willier. Look frames are by far the best (IMHO). They hold up great over time, descend fantastically, ride smoothly and transfer power efficiently. I'll never ride or race any other brand. Glad to hear that you like yours.

      The 695 SR is an amazing bike, I wouldn't even know where, or how, to start describing it. The kit as it is shipped is amazing, the build quality is fantastic, fit and finish is perfect. Ride quality is smooth and power transfer is unlike any bike I have ever ridden.....absolutely unbelievable.
