Yes. I have more but these are the bikes I ride regularly with the exception of the oldschool Trek. (Too big) That was a gift from another BFer to cheer me up when I was being screened for cancer. He sent it to me in parts and demanded I build it up.

Heeeey. You posted just as many as I did.

OK, here's a partial list of mine. I'm too embarassed to show all of them, lest you think I am obsessed about bikes or something...

The premier ride:


The backup ride:


The fun folder (16" wheels) modeled by my wife's niece:

The fast folder:


The family transport:

Hey Blast, what the hell! I see you just sign your paychecks over to the local bike shop Of all of them I think that Pinnarello is the bomb! I remember saying awhile ago , nobody has a crappy bike anymore.
I'll put mine up, as soon as I can find a pict.

I'm still cheap. Most I bought used from Craigslist and put together. The Pin and the MTB were the only new purchases. I need to get rid of one of the Bianchis. Just can't decide which.

I'll post mine when I get some good pics.

Right now I have:

My new build - 2007 Cannondale CAAD 8 with Campy Chorus (Centaur cranks, because Al looks nicer). I am just waiting on the wheelset - There will be a thread about this build when it's all done.

My Ex-all purpose and now commuter/rain bike - 2002 Cannondale CAAD 4 with Ultegra/105 10s/9s mix.

Oh and I built up a nice 2002 Bianchi Vigorelli (frame from Craigslist) for my GF.

sweetnsour, is that a Thomson 25.0 on your 585? That's a pretty cool "look" with the CF and Brooks (or is it an Ideale? )

Kinda looks like a foam (insulating) mattress pad all folded up, but, I suppose they could just as easily be DHL shipping envelopes..

t4mv: the seatpost is a Thomson Elite, black now, no longer silver. The stem also changed from the pic, it is now a no-name, which is pretty cool. Good catch on the Brooks. That is the centerpiece of the whole thing, imo.

Siu: It's a thermarest.

Good call! It's a Counterpoint. Fun tandem. Each rider has his/her own derailleur so we can pedal at difference cadences. Eliminates arguments.
