    Luv that purple and black, but those rim labels make it too busy. If your looking for votes, I say get rid of them.

    I agree. This is my first set of deep V rims, and I think the all black with black hubs will be nice. But the big white and red letters just don't do it for me either.

    Well, I had a chance to dig the '93 R600 out of the back of the basement to take its first pictures. I picked this up locally last fall from a student at the college here in town. It is the lightest of all my C-Dales at just 22lbs on the bathroom scale.



    It was equipped with the original Shimano 105 gear, right down to the hubs, and these SRAM Road Twist Shifters.



    I did, however, switch out the 42 tooth chainring for a 39, increased the cassette range from 11-21, to a 12-28, and added a Tiagra long cage RD.



    Once again, I can't wait for the weather to turn nice and take it for a spin.

    I just got this 58cm '89 Black Lightning, although I think it may be right at the upper end of my usable size range. Just couldn't resist the temptation. Anybody got a black/gold Suntour Edge RD laying around? Haha.

    Beeeeeutiful! Cannondales in black are so yummy.

    I also have an '88 Sport Touring 400 in black with red decals. It will soon receive its winter makeover!

    What's with no snow on the ground? Can you see the snow pile through the window on my R600? Just to the left of the flash burst in the window.

    The last of the snow just melted away about 4 days ago. What size do you ride, Bob?

    I'll be really pleased if my snow melts in 4 weeks! Ha! Only in my dreams. I'll be lucky if it is all gone in 8 weeks!

    60cm is my preferred size at this time.

    You know it really depends on the temps, it got up above freezing here for a few days, and the snow banks are down about half a metre and it's supposed to be warm for a couple more days. Snow banks are at the brown stage now... Unfortunately it's supposed to get cold again on the weekend and stay there for a while, rain tomorrow that really causes them to shrink...

    Here's a tasty 23 inch Cannondale ST that was finished this afternoon. Fresh red powder coat, new decals, saddle, bar tape, housing & cables, 700c Alex Race 24 rims on Scott hubs, new Cannondale long reach brakes with new Tektro anatomic bend levers, Shimano 600 tricolor FD/RD/BB/crankset, new 400RL Shimano 8 speed DT shifters, a 12/23 cassette and new Michelin Speediums. I'm a sucker for red bikes...






    ...and a long overdue pic of the Yellow Submarine with the new Ultegra/Mavic Open Pro wheels, Michelin Erilium2 tires and red decals it got at the end of last summer:

    Dr, if one is the Yellow Submarine, is the second Spider Man?





    P.S. It looks fantastic. I'm planning on accenting my red Paramount in blue.

    Got my R300 redone again yesterday. This time as a R1000si. Took it out for a 20mile shake down today. Rode wonderful!
    Campy Proton wheels, Utegra drivetrain. Scaled at 21.6lb with M520 mountain peddles. I am pretty happy with that weight on a 63cm frame and the $350 I have in it.

    Been busy, busy, busy in The Lab...

    ...and have some nice results to show for it.
    First up is another Black Lightning repro: '87 58cm SR frame, fresh powdercoat, gold repro decals, all Shimano 600 components, handbuilt Alex rim/shimano hub wheelset, 7 speed Hyperglide, Vittoria Rubinos, Ritchey saddle.






    Then we have this nice little 54cm white SR with all 2nd Gen 105 8 speed, Omega rims on Shimano hubs and a cool Sugino 75 crankset and BB (not a big fan of the 105 cranksets), Michelin Speediums, SR bars.





    I probably have 7-8 bikes to go up on CL this weekend, gotta move some of these out.

    Ther's just something soo right about a red Cannondale road frame, SR. Did you switch it over to downtube shifters?

    Nice 56cm Blue SR500...

    ...that was completed last night. New Sun rims, 1st gen 105 with a 6200 series 600 crankset, rare 1050 series 7 speed polished shifters, 14/28 FW. I like the white hoods on the yellow bar tape...

    Hi,

    I actually just picked up one of these frames. I'm having trouble getting the right bottom bracket size for it. I've taken it to 2 mechanics, both can't seem to get a good match with the Sugino GT Crank I have. The last mechanic told me I would probably need a 127mm length. He didn't have it in stock and was hesitant to give to go ahead since it would be nonrefundable.

    I was wondering if you know the bottom bracket size that has worked best for you?

    Let me know!

    StayLucky

    Staylucky, This might be better as it's own thread. Quickly, is it a double or a triple crankset?

    I havent run a Sugino on a sealed BB yet. on Coda and Shimano Triples I believe I have 113-118 UN25 and 27s On 105 doubles I think am running 110 (maybe less its really tight on the one bike) LP25's.
    Sugino does seem to run a lot more offset. according to Sheldon's notes some of those ran a asymmetrical spindle of 127.5 with a 2mm spacer on the drive side. He is recommending a 122.5 UN72 with a 2mm drive-side spacer as a possible replacement. http://www.sheldonbrown.com/bbsize.html

    Edit:
    Measure the distance from the crank arms to the chain stay on both sides with a 122mm BB and see if they are different. You should be able to tell if it is a Asymmetric crank that way.
