Nice bike Steelblue... Ok, HOT BIKE!
That deal is wicked! It's like $2395 shipped right?
Less than 1/2 the price for a similarly equipped Litespeed Icon... Can't wait for the full review.

This one was $1998 from the December group buy. It is definitely a great deal. On top of that, and thanks to my wife, I didn't have to pay for it.

The frame quality is quite good. The welds are consistent. From ride reports I read, everyone seems to like it. Unfortunately, I won't have time to ride it until next weekend. Work tomorrow and spending father's day with the family.

My backup bike, a steel Biancho San Remo with Campy Mirage:


My MTB, a Fisher Joshua with XT:


My bride's custom Serotta with Campy Chorus 9, the wheels should date it:


My regular ride is in the shop getting some parts changed out due to wear. Pictures to come when I get it back.

Thanks for the compliment.... I'll never be fast, so I might as well go for style points.

Yes - if I show up at the Davis "laid back" ride, this is what I'll be on. I finished it Saturday evening, and so far have about 60 miles on it. No issues yet.

I'd like to pick your brain about rebuilding bikes. I have one that I haven't started on yet because I don't know where to begin. You've got the best looking rebuilds, IMO.

Thank you for the high compliment! Anytime you wanna bring it by, we can have at it. I've got most all the tools and a good stand. Might cost you a Togo's sammich, though ......

Caveat - Can't build wheels.

Seeing Pete's new taxi-bike reminded me that I don't have any current pictures of this one, so I decided to remedy the situation.



(Of course, I forgot that there's a Brooks Pro on the way for it, so it'll quickly be outdated... )

I'll take you up on that soon. I just want to show you what I bought (old steel Specialized Allez Sport) and get advice from you as to what you would do to it if you owned the bike. I hope to join you guys in Davis this Saturday so I'll bring the bike with me. I just have to get out of a party my wife commited us to.

Here is my daily commuter workhorse, a trusted friend since 1995 when I commuted daily in Colorado, rain or snow, from Sugarloaf to Boulder. Still going strong, now we travel a more modest route together on Foothill Expressway in milder, flatter California. In the photo you can see what's left of yesterday's secret recipe - my morning ride elixir in an old Full Cycle water bottle.

My bike came home from the LBS today. They changed the rear cassette, chain, cables, housing, and tape. I'm lazy, and time is short with 2 kids (I'm stay-at-home dad). So I had them do it. There was a problem with the freehub on my other back wheel and they are ordering parts. They'll have it fixed up in another week or so (no charge).

Anyway, here is my main ride:
