That's my Siena...built for foremost for luxury and secondarily for performance that is appropriate for my 58 year old engine.

I'll try and take some pics of my new (well, about 9 years old) Litespeed Palmares. I just scored it on eBay. I put some new bar tape on, new cables & housing, new brake pads, and some new wheels (fairly inexpensive Mavic CXP22 with Ultegra 6600 hubs). I took it for a first ride tonite - sweet. My research on the bike prior to purchasing it showed the Palmares was their top-of-the-line frame. I'll try and get some pics up this weekend.

I don't have to read the other 37 pages to know that c0lnago's bike wins by default, but I still say that Ruegammer (sp?) has everyone beat in the Hot or Not thread. Your Moots is better spec'ed however.

Anyway, I posted some pictures of my Moots here a while back, but have some better pictures to share this time around. Here you go:

Thanks, and sure!

Moots Vamoots 57.5 stock geometry
Full Ultegra group w/ 50/34 chainrings and 11/23 cassette
Reynolds Cirro wheels and Dura Ace 7801SL wheels
Look HSC 3 fork
Look EDH bars
Look Ergopost 4 seatpost
DT Swiss RWS skewers
Arione
Chris King headset (black)
Speedplay Zero Ti (grey)
Specialized Stem (this is the only item I'd like to replace)
Tacx Tao alloy cages (x2)

When all is said and done,the bike is 17.5 lbs with the DA wheels, and probably 100-150 grams less with the Cirros. Not the lightest bike in the world, but it's not too bad either considering the frame material and size.

Beautiful bike, Marqueemoon!
With much help from this forum (thanks!), I built up this Odonata over the summer, my first build. All DA, Ouzo Pro, Masterpiece, Toupe. Although it pales next to most of the bikes in this post, it was fun to build and the bike suits this old guy like a dream.

It's an ML...and I must tell you I thought it would be too small. I had ridden a 57cm Firenze before. The bike shop (Randall Scott in Boulder CO, which I highly recommend) said I'd be fine. They were right, it fits me like a glove.

How 'bout a Ti Roo Ride !!!!


It's my sister's bike. She's selling it now, as she has an injury that keeps her from racing. But man - what a sweet Ti Roo Ride

xJAHx 09-13-08 07:58 AM

Well, through building wheels for a local shop and selling their demo'ed bits, I am fortunate enough to have an endless supply of Ti bikes in the stable:

That is a sampling, but the others include a Jeff Jones Spaceframe, Indy Fab Ti Crown Jewel track frame, IF Ti Planet-X, and my best find to date, a Moots snow bike:

Nice! The Teramo (a notch below yours I think) looks kinda same as your frame and when I saw it built I just had to say wow!
