    Here's my three loves.



    My Look 566 is a 2009 iteration, XS frame. It has an Ultegra group, KeO pedals, Mavic CXP-33 on the front, Mavic OpenPro with a PowerTap hub on the rear. Tires are Continental GatorSkins, 700x25. I changed the stem to a 110mm 3T, and the saddle has been changed to a Specialized Dolce 155. It was my primary bike, but now I've relegated it to training and climbing.



    This is my 2006 Bianchi L'una 928. The 53cm frame was purchased on eBay, and had 50 miles on it (claimed) at the time I bought it. I believe that - it is immaculate! It is set up with Campagnolo Chorus group, standard chainrings, KeO pedals, Easton EA90 Aero wheels and Continental GP4000S 700x23 tires. The handlebar is an "ergo" Ritchey Classic (silver). The saddle is a (really comfy!) Specialized Oure. It will become my race bike.



    Here is my 2004 Felt B2. It's a 50cm 650c bike. I bought it used, so I don't know it's history. The way it has been set up leads me to believe it was probably originally purchased as a frame set and built up. It's a mixture of Ultegra and Dura-Ace group sets, Shimano 600 brakes, a nine speed SRAM Red cassette (11t 23), SRAM Red crankset and chainrings (55/39), KeO pedals, FSA Vision handlebar, Dura-Ace bar end shifters, Zero Lite wheels, and Continental Triathlon tires. The Bontranger saddle is impossible for me to sit on for more than ten minutes - the bike is in dire need of a proper fitting and setup for me!

    Ayup. Haven't fully set it up yet. The Dura Ace SRM wasn't designed to be pedaled backwards so I was having offset issues. SRM had the Rotor on the shelf after a rehab.

    Sara, that's a really nice stable of bikes.

    Oh, I know. Still, that Dolan is quite something! My old Felt, though, is still competitive. It's light, it's stiff, and it's aero enough for me.

    I have yet to ride the Bianchi since putting the Chorus crankset on it. The gearing with the compact chainrings it had on the the FSA crankset was just too low, besides the cranks being too long for me. I hope I can get up a hill with the standard chainrings it now has on it!

    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.

    merlinextraligh,

    Flip it. Slam it.

    Really, it's very nice! New SRAM too.
    Thanks.

    Those were the height of cool when I was getting into cycling back in the 80s.

    I have a unused SunTour 13-19 corncob freewheel if you need it for restoration.

    Thanks, I'll let you know. It came with some type of cog on the HED wheel. Just picked up this for $108:



    Next up is a stem and bar set up. I'd like to run this at some of the local TT's once it's together. Should be fun. Sending off some tubulars for repair today...

    Indeed. Neat looking stuff. Brake levers, stem, and bars up next. I'll pick the frame up tomorrow then figure out length on the stem/bar set up.

    On another note started working on the Shiv. It's not a Di2 frame but I figured out a pretty slick way to set it up so everything is internal. Figured out the battery mount placement; what's interesting is that only Columbia/Highroad used Shimano/Specialized together, so I had to hunt down pics from 2011 to get some ideas.

    Racer Ex, I have one of those in my garage about 3/4 built. Bought it at <drum roll> Sports Chalet in the mid-1980s. Last time I raced on it was around 2000. Tried selling it a couple of times with no bites. I also have clincher and tubular wheels.
    Thanks.

    Funny bikes are selling pretty well on Ebay, especially if they are clean and together. I was surprised that this one didn't get bidded up but it was listed under "track". Some of the more exotic Italian stuff is in the $2k range.

    7 inches. 8 Inches travel in the rear. Ran an inverted 8" fork last season but was a tad heavy. Put it on a diet with a right-side-up fork this year.
