    Hello From Augusta, Georgia

    My name is Dustin LaBarge. I've been running for the past ten years, and started cycling with an off-road triathlon and a trusty Pacific Vortex 39-pound suspension mountain bike (seriously). After jumping in a road duathlon recently, I started cycling for exercise in addition to my running (again with the Vortex!)

    Yesterday, I broke down and bought a road bike. I got a classic without realizing it (a 1988 Bianchi Super Leggera, I think). Picture attached. This is my first time on a road bike and first time with down tube shifters. I'm having a blast!

    I've come here because most of the pictures on the net about Super Leggeras eventually link here. Looking forward to making memories on this bike! Named her Ferrari. Nice to meet you all!

    Hi Dustin,

    Welcome to Bike Forums.

    I have been riding with a friend that just bought an 85.

    Thank you! Beautiful bike and pretty friend, too. That bar tape is wild! Her bike actually looks upscale from mine, unless it's just been kept up a little better.

    Nice to meet you!

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.
