just got this off ebay...rock lobster alum team bike. rides great! but the saddle does not interface well with my rear-end. it has record hubs with tubular rims, very nice but I'm thinking of swaping them onto one of my road bikes. also working on putting some riv-nuts since the team bikes were not built with waterbottle mounts.

oh, its all stock for now: http://bianchiusa.com/06_san_jose.htmlOriginally Posted by Timo
on my list to replace: saddle (i like brooks), maybe the bars, i still haven't decided, and pedals, also not sure though i'm leaning towards getting some crank brothers mallets.
i also just ordered some IRO hubs, gonna probably just relace the stock wheels/tires to them so i can have a flip/flop in the rear, i miss riding fixed. if i feel like spending money, a chris king headset is probably in the near future.
Thanks Josh! I asked because from a distance your break levers look at bit like carbon non-Ergopower Campa's (from their TT Record group) and the cranks like 2003 carbon RecordOriginally Posted by joshr

That bike is sick... It hurts my feelings (knowing that it is not and will never be mine), but it lets me know real people can build amazing bikes.
Quick question though... What's your favorite color?

'06 Poprad frame (59cm) w/ 04' Poprad fork

Its sold as Frame/Fork only, so the build took a little while to assemble.
Frame - TCX (Medium)
Fork - Carbon
Wheelset - Bontrager Race Lite (stolen from my Lemond Victoire)
Tires- cheap Conti Steel bead.
tubes- cheap and black.
Cassette- 12-25 Ultegra
Seat - WTB Titanium (comfy and reasonably lite, will likely be upgraded)
Post- Bontrager Race X Lite (again off of Lemond)
Stem - Bontrager Race xxx lite (from Klein Palomino XXX) 105mm
Bar - Bontrager Race Lite 46cm (had a Salsa Bell Lap 46 flaring to 52...the pure 46 seems narrow by comparison)
Headset - Giant Integrated
Spacers - Bontrager Carbon
Shifter/brakes - 105 black
front D - 105 braze on bottom pull (upgrading to a clamp top pull ultegra or da soon)..the pulley system looks like a nightmare.
Rear - Ultegra long cage (i occassionally run a 12-34 MTB cassette for really hilly races/rides)
Cranks - Profile Design Carbon 175mm 135bcd
Chainrings - Stronglight 39/ Stronglight 51 (will be running single chainring config for races)
Chain - Sram (to be able to take it apart easily...and frequently
Brakes - Shimano BR 550's. Seem fine so far.
Cables- Bontrager cable set, nice stuff. first time i've used it.
Tape - Silva Carbon.
Pedals - Eggbeater Stainless steel
currently it's doing road duty but i'll put michelin Jets on it for cross.
thanks for looking.
Here's a phew photos.
this is it before i had what i needed to build it up:
Only one ride so far, carbon fork provides a smoother ride, bike is much more responsive to rider effort than the old Soul was. Decrease in weight is perceptable.
Actually I fear the carbon lower arm of a Record rear derailleur is to fulnerable for cross so I use a Chorus one.Originally Posted by MERTON
My first road/? bike. put the Seca slicks on for speed in the city. swapped the horrible, taint-torturing stock saddle for a comfy Specialized BG. the Arkel Tailrider is in the mail.must get the pack off of the back as it gets hotter here in phoenix. now which kind of rack? it has eyelets.
