    They're old, but:


    My Rockhopper Comp, in commuter trim. It was also my perch for my first half century last week. That hurt on the slightly undersized bike, but hell, it worked.



    My Sirrus Triple. It's sized a bit better for me, so I might just make it my commuter soon.

    I need to get a good picture outside in the sun for ultimate sexiness.

    But here are some sexy teasers.

    I'll be adding a brooks champion flyer this winter. Also, I am hoping to replace it with a Tricross Comp this spring.

    Here's my stable of Specialized Bikes



    My 1997? Stumpjumper. Bought it new and my wife didn't talk to me for a month (one of those "now that we're married we should discuss major purchases things"). It was worth it- this baby has been rock solid, never missing a beat.



    2007 Tricross- built up by someone else. Wanted a strong durable flatbar bike and found this. Fun bike to zip around in and not worry about anything.



    2007 Roubaix Elite- I wasn't supposed to get a Roubaix until I got down under 240... but back in September, they had one in my size on closeout... it kind of followed me home like a stray cat! Love this bike- super comfy- the carbon fiber really does absorb a ton of the vibration and lessens the fatigue dramatically.

    So that's my Specialized family!
    Are we having fun yet?

    I'm digging the flat bars on the Tricross. Is that a Tricross Sport with a double chainring?

    Sorry for the crappy pics - only got my phone handy. Almost done with this build! Probably should go in the vintage board.

    1984 Specialized HardRock. Built up with mostly ultegra, XT, and drop bars. This will be a winter beater for me, that can handle some dirt. it originally had horrible pink & teal stickers on it. Once they were removed, its an interesting gloss grey. I found matching grey tape for the bars too.



    Always up to no good.

    I didn't wait til I was sub 215 either

    I fit into the Clydesdale class as well. I'm about 240 to 248 most of the time. My rewards was to purchase a new mountain when I hit 215 as a reward. I hit about 238 and the year end close out enticed me.

    Best of success maken the target weight.

    My nickname in my Thursday Night riding crew is Hoss. I'd like to lose the weight so I can keep up on the climbs ... lots of those in Dash Point State Park ... worst is Heart Attach Hill ... very appropriately named.

    Because there's a Clyde's Rides thread. This was just a chance to show off a few new Specialized branded bikes is all. Some point, I'll start a Trek thread and so on

    It's a Tricross Comp frame with the CF seatstays and chainstays. It has a compact double up front and it's pretty much a "frankenbike" put together from various pieces by a guy that worked for Specialized. I like the flatbar for rides under 20 miles- after that, I'm aching for drops. Because the handlebar is carbon fiber, I don't think I can clamp those bar end things onto it so I can vary my hand position more often.

    To the other guy with the Tarmac in this thread.

    Do you like it? I absolutely adore mine, just got back from a 50 miler. What level is that, the comp? I like the colors. Gerolsteiner...vs...Quickstep.

    Ps: Your stems upside down.

    I have the Comp and the color is Gerolsteiner. I love it. I couldn't believe the difference in ride quality compared to my other bike. (With the price difference between the two, I'm glad I got what I paid for ). Next year, I plan on turning the stem over. I'm still a newbie to the road bike scene!!

    Sorry for the late reply... been cycling in NZ... great weather

    The frame and wheels are stock. I added the bars, levers (black 105 calipers - not pictured) and a carbon forks.
