Oh go on then, if you insist . She's not exactly roadworthy just yet...



Quick edit - I'm gonna ditch the XT V-brake idea, I've been looking around review sites and everyone says the front squeals like a pig no matter how well set up it is; that and the fact that it flexes the bosses outwards quarter of an inch each side. I'm probably going to go for a set of Magura 33's .

OK, Here you go. My favorite road bike - 4 years old. Ignore the peeling paint on my old garage. Well I guess it isn't that bad. Hey, I'm a busy guy! Gotta go for a bike ride ya' know!

I'll be a hog and put up my other bike that I use for commuting. Just changed the front chainring to a 39T last night and put on some lightly use Conti GP3000's. Rides better and will be easier to get started in traffic. Isn't my lovely wife's garden nice?

I have a couple of others, but no pics. A C-dale Tandem and an older C-dale MTB.

I'm a nut about bikes. What can I say?

It is a Classic, 57cm, Ultegra 9-spd. Added Mavic Ksyriums that I got on a super-duper deal a year ago. Also added a Chris King headset and different saddle and tires since new.

Nice Tuscany too.

I'd never have been able to buy this except for a super deal on the complete bike from mail order. I didn't have a problem with buying it that way since I knew exactly what I needed after years of riding. None of the local LBS's could have even come close on price. I do all my own service.

I always rode steel until I bought the Ti frame. More like steel than any other material and lasts forever. Plus I deserved it after busting my a** doing freelance work. Used the cash as "Bikes monies" as my kids used to say.

I toured for many years on a Fuji S-12-S and was delighted with it. I just bought a new Fuji for my tours this summer and many years ahead. Here is a photo of my bike near col de Galibier in the French Alps.
