Daughter got a new bike yesterday. Dad gets a new bike today. I saw it and immediately knew I had to have it. First generation Miyata Alumicross in excellent condition. I guess I joined a cult today

Mid nineties Diamondback Apex built up with mostly period correct XT parts.

Hella fun bike to ride... one by eight drive.

I've had the Sannino for about a year. I bought the frame and fork, and have built it up with mostly parts I had on hand and/or fit parts and gearing I knew I liked, filling in with other parts that didn't look horrible with the vintage frame, but worked and fit the way I liked.



Mostly Dura Ace 7700 series (9 speed ~ turn of the century) drive parts, including the SIS DT shifters, except the crank which is the first generation Shimano R700 compact (need a compact, but don't like this gray chainwheel... might do something about it... Velo Orange makes some modern, but appropriate looking cranks).
Cane Creek brake levers.
Velocity A23 wheels I had built by Prowheelbuilder.com (very happy)
Saddle - an old San Marco Ponza that is comfortable enough but looks pretty good, I think
Seat post - Velo Orange (long setback needed due to 75 degree seat tube)
Stem - Nitto
Bars - Soma Highway One

I was thinking of moving into a Campy group, but want to keep the DT shifters, and want indexed (I've been riding since the 70s so don't go and lecture me on friction - I know friction and prefer indexed!) and so far haven't found a group in Campy that I like.

Mostly completed my first "project", 1985 Raleigh Olympian. It's a tad tall for me, but definitely rideable, I plan on using it as a commuter. I'd like to thank everyone in C&V for being so helpful, really learned a lot from you guys.

The Italian girl... which is a pretty international bicycle with French cranks, pedals, saddle, and shifters, Japanese derailleurs and rims, Canadian hubs, and the original Italian stem, handlebar, and brakes.

She has been pretty tarted up...

Bought this a little while ago with the intentions of making it my all rounder, but ended up buying a more appropriately sized bike so this one will be on the market soon. Anyways, here is my 1986 Alan Record. Full 7400 Dura Ace, Campy Record hubs and Wolber tubulars, beautiful eye candy bike.

I snagged a cheapish Colnago Master Extra Light frameset and threw on some newish Record and a Chorus crank, I should probably put a silver stem on it but, for now, it rides great!

And a couple of weeks ago I bought a Fuji track bike for $200, swapped out the Brooks Professional saddle that came with it and re-sold it for $300. The Brooks feels nice and looks okay on my old De Rosa.

My beloved 1987 Cascade... swapped the tyres to Schwalbe Hurricanes today for more expedition riding and fitted an XT front and rear derailleur... the shifting is like buttah.



Also found my bike's long lost brother... an identical '87 Cascade frame and fork which I plan to upgrade and refinish since it is scruffy.

My Trek 914 its a little rough but it was a good deal i've added the brooks and TA cranks and wheels which are Super Champion Gentelman 81 laced to Ofmega hubs. I'm still up in the air about the handlebars those are the same model as the originals but the cockpit came from another bike the original stem and Barcons are on a Nitto mustache bar that goes on and off based on my whims of the day

My Gazelle Champion Mondial A

Around a 1976 or so.

Refinished by forum member Sloar.

The paint really pops in person. Just haven't decided on a build yet.

I have a Gran Sport groupset sitting here, but I am equally as likely to do a more modern "lakes" build.

Thanks again Shawn!
