Couple more pictures, with a nicer background.

Better pictures of my 2010 Allez,







The "Garage door" pictures prompted me to get better ones,, however I do not have a garage door on the 2000 Cedar Creek 5th wheel I have been living in for over two years! LOL,, Until last month I went home every weekend, now I am 15+ hrs from home. Looking to buy a house here now and get settled back down with my LOVELY wife of 32+ years.

What are those little red bits at the ends of the crankarms? Too small to be pedals.......................................................................

Oh, and post more pics when you get a proper garage door.

Just buy a garage door and prop it up against that playground equipment. Screw the house idea.

Nice bike BTW.

Nice ride!!!!

Garage Door...Should cost about a dollar for a garage door picture. Just follow these simple instructions:
*on your next ride pack a cold bottle of beer and your camera.
*ride until you see a really nice garage door.
*compliment the homeowner on his wonderful garage door
*offer him the bottle of cold beer in exchange for allowing you to photogarph your bike in front of his garage door.
*feel free to send me a small portion of the thousands of dollars I just saved you from needlessly spending.

Ship the bike to me and I'll get a shot of it against a garage door. I'm kinda busy, though, so it might take a few years to get it done and back to you.

That's one pretty ride. I had a friend who bought an early version of the Allez back in the early '80s. Yours is much nicer and probably a better ride. His would pick up some sort of resonance around 40 mph and be quite the wild ride until he either backed off or sped up.
