    hey giantcfr1, where do you get those reflective red stickers?

    And just a thought, what would happen if you stabbed a carbon bike with a steel knife? Just a random thought that popped into my head... I know, I'm screwed up...

    I don't trust my kid with all that nice carbon
    Great pics. Your garage is looking good.

    The red stickers are from 100 yen shop. I bought a strip and used a paper hole puncher the make them.

    Carbon bike vs steel knife = expensive and virtually irreversible damage. The carbon weave is constructed for the usual force applied in whatever the intendend purpose is. Any force other than what the product is intended for, will result in "OH MY GOSH!!!" or a trip in an ambulance.

    It's a mix of mud and sand. It's in the 80s here...definitely no snow.

    This Trek 720 Multi-Track has a 23"(58CM) frame, which is probably why I like it so much. The seat post was date stamped in 1995. This bike looks more like 16 months old than 16 years old. The Shimano Hyper Drive is pretty smooth. Great for casual evening rides, and great going up steep hills!

    You people were supposed to support me with my OCP - disorder.

    Today I decided to replace my red alloy cages with black ones. As from today, this will be the last change...

    Bike looks fantastic.
    I can only help your disorder by encouraging it seeing as I have the same problem thereby worsening you problem which means your screwed cos most of us are in the same boat which means your really screwed and might have a million dollar bike by the end of year.
    Though at the moment it might have not cost a million $ but it looks it.
    And shame about the CFR. I wonder if that was made by Vitus it looks like there design and they did make them for Giant aswell as other manufacturers and some of them are classics now.
    Bugger it now Im onto old stuff Im showing my 27 year old Ricardo.
    Its got the tires off my hybrid in this pic so I say it qualifys for showing.
    The chains to short at time of pic so its on the small front ring.

    My flat bar stable.

    IMG_0446.jpg

    Don't know if this works but it is an attempt to attach photos of Specialized Sirrus single speed knobby version and my home built flat bar roadster.

    I guess we'll see if it works.

    Rarely with my city bike (cannondale) as my rides between clients are under 8km each trip. I'll see how I feel over summer, but with my job, I'm often in a cafe' etc out of the heat.

    If your job is being in cafes I can understand you don't need to drink while riding

    I love this picture but it's doing my head in. Are you going for the "De Rosa Tango" effect?

    Reminds me of an old pic I took of my road bike.

    Haha, De Rosa Tango


    It's a picture of my bike in a curved mirror. I reversed the image so the logos and stuff wouldn't be backwards. I should have left it uncropped.

    Watch out with those spinergy wheels there ... I've heard many reports that they can't take too much of a beating since they were designed for track use and apparently they abrubtly fail sometimes causing serious injuries.
    Check the spots where the carbon spokes are attached to the rim for little cracks from time to time.
