This was my bike. I replaced the frame with a black Tarmac. FYI, the white frame is for sale!

This is my Landshark that I picked up used as a frame in April and have spent a number of months finding just the right components. Mostly DA7800, it rides really nice and comes in at exactly 17lbs. If I were having one custom built this is exactly the paint job I'd choose...so I really lucked out. Only downside is that it is a tad too large for me...so not sure how long I'll keep it. Most Landsharks have pretty wild paint jobs so this one gets a lot of attention. Did I mention it rides really smooth?

So I sez to the wife, "You gotta go up a size on the frame," but she just gives me that look...

Yes, I borrowed them from my LBS for a century back in September. I thought they were a great ride for a rolling course.

Hello,

Is this white enough?



Does this one have enough white on it?

It came with a white saddle, but it was horribly uncomfortable. Still a white bike, mostly.

Grinningfool,
Really liking the Specialized with the Brooks. Is it a B17? I have one on my C'Dale R500.

That's correct, it's a B-17 standard. Obvioulsy a little heavier than the original saddle, but IMHO it's worth the extra weight to be comfortable.

Let the 50+ shunning begin. Incorrect bike picture positioning by DG. The bicycle should be showing the drive side and the chain on the big ring. Reflectors are still in place on the wheels and the stem is to be flipped and slammed.

Boy did you screw up this time Gary, the Council of Elders will be along shortly to met out your punishment.

Other than the hanging offenses the Evo looks sweet!

Let the shunning begin. Negative attention is better than no attention at all, right?

I'll loan you my manual for dealing with a picture shunning Gary. I've gotten good at having at least one going. How are the pedals working out for you so far?
