    Very nice! I love Seven bikes. (Or should I perhaps say Seven's bikes?)

    What's the handlebar on there?

    [QUOTE=xJAHx;7460635]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:




    No offence but I think your bike must be slightly small for you. You've got your seat set back as far as it will go, I see. And your bars look like very long reach bars.

    I'm afraid you'll have to hand it over. (Just kidding. But not about the sizing. Ever try a setback seatpost? Some swear by them.)

    My new build Meriln

    It was an unused 2006 frame. I thought the original fork was a little noodly, so I put my Scott S1 Speedster fork on it. It's a very stiff fork and I think it matches rather well. I have an SWork Tarmac, but I find myself riding this bike 80% of the time.

    Hi Roadplay, Nice Merlin. What handlebar are you using on the Merlin?

    Thanks. It’s funny you asked about the handlebars, because that was the hardest piece of the puzzle for me. I tried three sets and finally settled on a set of short reach bars: FSA Wing Pro Compact Rd 42cm 31.8 Aero (aluminum).

    It, too, is the FSA Wing Pro Compact (shallow), 44cm. Short reach and shallow drop enable more riding positions, given my inflexibility, Fred or not.

    Just realized my photo is Fred, too, taken from non-drive side. Oh, well....

    I posted this elsewhere, somewhere, but will repeat it here.

    This is my newly built up Quintana Roo Santo. Even though this setup looks like a tri bike, it is actually used as one of my road bikes. The configuration is based on years of riding, understanding what I need for a fit, and my geographic riding routes.

    First, I like a steep seatpost. The Santo is 76.5.

    Second, I ride in a combination of Scottsdale suburban areas on to semi rural ranchette areas. I like riding on properly setup aerobars and can safely ride on the aerobars for abou 50% of my routes. As a result, I like my controls close at hand when I'm not on the bars. Thus the arrangement with the shifters on the bullhorns. When in the aero position, it is no big deal to move my hand over 6 inches to shift.

    This bike has turned out to be very comfortable and makes a good all day ride. It also is very stable and rides straight as a razor.

    Interesting!!! I know you said it’s good for long commutes, but have you ever gone on group rides with that brake / shifter combination?

    Almost all of my rides are solo. I started out as a distance runner and solo workouts have always been the norm.

    Certainly, this configuration is not quite as quick as brifters, but it is light years faster than down tubes or bar ends (on drops).

    Had this made last November. I've taken it all over the place. Apart from packing times, it is awesome. The pic on the left was taken in an apt in Florence...where I wish I was right now..............

    Lovely shiny collection! You need to work up to 7 in total - one for each day of the week.

    I'm hoping that my next bike is Ti (all I got is the Ti watch at the mo )

    The only Ti frames stocked in my area are Litespeed and Merlin (both in limited numbers), but the Motobecane bikes on Bikes Direct seem ridiculously cheap (ie I could ship one in for much less than a local build of one of the others). How does the Motobecane compare to your other bikes?

    Lynskey R320

    Lynskey R320...It has some road rash from a crit is September where I was knocked into a guard rail at about 25 mph. The handlebars (carbon) ripped in half like they were tissue paper. The Lynskey survived in pretty good shape.

    Best bike I've ever ridden.
