    My two road bikes:
    2006 Trek Madone 5.5 (56cm)
    2004 Trek 5000 (58cm)
    Both are excellent bikes and they seem to get along well with one other.

    I don't know what that has to do with how much steerer is sticking out of the headtube.[eehh whatever. It related to it somehow!

    I'm new here.
    Interesting reading to see what people are riding!

    My roadie is an old Miele (about 1990), steel, 12 speed. I keep thinking it's time to trade up but to what?
    It's comfortable on the roads around here that leave the aluminium riders with dancing eyeballs.

    Here's my new ride - 2005 Mercier Corvus AL. Same exact bike as some of the Moto's I've seen on here, just different badges. I added a Flightdeck to it; bottles and cages are on their way.... Maybe some of you vet's can tell me why my front wheel came laced straight, and my back on crossed? Strength? Got it for $650 on Ebay, let me know if I got a good deal or got sold.
    Thanks! Anybody in the Covallis, OR area?

    [EDIT] Sorry 'bout all the typos, guess I can't blast punk rock and type at the same time

    Either he's truly racist, or just truly ignorant. Both have the same effect. Regardless of what 'good' he's done in his life, he's now shown his worth.

    New to forum, lots of great info. Just picked up a Specialized Rubaix Comp, love it! Previous "road" bike was a Dean tri bike. Those days are gone and it just didn't fit right. The new bike is much better for what I'm now doing.

    Dura Ace STI levers
    USE Alien 27.2 270mm post
    Selle Italia SLR Carbon (the original with no padding)
    DG 31.8mm clamp with M5x15 ti bolt
    Dura Ace front der. with alloy braze-on bolt and alloy clamp bolt (34.9mm) and ti cable bolt
    Dura Ace rear der. with hollowed out alloy pulley wheels bolts and ti cable bolt
    Token 2 piece all alloy 12-23 9-speed cassette with alloy lockring
    SRAM PC-99 hollow pin chain
    Token Scandium ISIS BB 68x108 with M14x20mm alloy bolts
    Forte Pro compact carbon crankset 50x34 at 172.5mm with alloy bolts

    Kenda Kaliente rear (189gr) and Kenda Kaliente Lite front (163gr)
    Control Tech QR ti / alloy skewers
    Full carbon 18gr each water bottle cages with alloy lock nuts (Calfee has posts, not braze-on holes)

    i normally hang out in the fixed/ss forum, so go easy on me...

    mostly thrown together from odd and mismatched bits:

    frame/fork: 57cm gt titanium, easton ec90 aero
    drivetrain: 8 speed 600 w/dura ace brifters
    wheels: 28 hole 600 laced to gp4 tubular in the rear w/15g wheelsmith (2x), 36 hole campy record hub to 24 hole gp4 tubular in front w/15g wheelsmith (2.17x)
    stem/bars: 40cm modolo bars with mossibly the ugliest stem in human history, but hey, 140mm stems are hard to find.

    ..and..you know...some other stuff.

    Thanks man! How do you like your Klein? I use to have a 1988 Klein Quantum Pro that I built up with Shimano 600 parts, Wolber Aero Rims. That was when Aluminum was still considered "Exotic". That bike could corner like no other bike I have ever ridden. You could go hard into corners and just lean into it with out touching the brakes, all the while carving the corner like as if you were on rails. It use to blow all my riding buddies away how tight and fast that bike could corner. In a momentary lapse of reason, I sold the Q-Pro in 1991 to buy a Nikon F4 Camera. I have always regreted that. A year later I even tried to buy the bike back from the person that I sold it to, offering even more than what he paid me for it. He declined (or De-Klein'ed) me

    Good to hear Klein use to be called the Lamborgini of Bicycles in the 70's, he was one of the originals to make welded fat tube Aluminum bicycles.
