    It is my pride and joy.

    The wheels are alright for a mid-level wheel. I had them trued once a few weeks after taking delivery of the bike and haven't touched them again since then. They're no longer *perfectly* true, but they're not rubbing against my brakes or anything so I'll leave it until my end of season tune-up. I've taken them over some pretty crappy roads and they've held up pretty well. I'm only 135lb, so I'm not punishing them anyway.

    I'd like to get a set of 1500g wheels from Oddsandendos sometime next season, though I'm in no rush to replace these. They've served me well for 2000km.

    Train smarter; ride harder; get faster; buy lighter (but not neccessarily in that order)

    Here is mine again.....it is a re-post because I miss seeing it in here...if for no other reason :-)....2004 LeMond Tourmalet 57cm, 105/Ultegra. All stock except for the clipless MTB pedals, and after 6 months 1500 miles I am still in love with it. I plan on adding some new bar tape (green) and a Cateye Astrale 8 computer. This is my baby!

    Cheers,

    Brian

    i'm gonna join Brains Bandwagon

    Sitting in my living room eager to get out

    This was when I first got my camera and I was experimenting (No, its not my stand It was very nice though)

    the front. The only difference is that now I have flare bars (I wish I had regular bars, but I got them as take offs for cheap, and i have black tape.

    This is a pic of me during my first 40 miler, i was dying at this point. It was early spring late winter.

    In the future I want to bet regular drops, maybe ergos. Also have Celeste tape. DO YOU FEEL THE LOVE! BAM!

    its a large-tube aluminum frame with 105/tiagra, clip-on aerobars, a tripple crank and a *relatively* thick looking saddle....its definetly nice, but not exactly "very light" by road standards.

    here's my baby with its shiney new dura ace drivetrain and shifters (- the cranks)

    Ivan Basso can really climb. It is being true, he is not having to carry the extra added weight of a male penis, but he is still a good climber.

    Nice. Like the color matched crank and tires. Are you an OCP? If your not you should check up their exclusive club having all that carbon and color matching

    yeah its not light compared to the other bikes here... but i like it... i'm not a "hardcore" rider... just doing it because i need some cardio workout.. i hate running so i chose biking... also, i got it at a really good price that i could'nt resist...

    i'll be doing some upgrades soon... but not now...

    Yeah its a totally sweet bike and very attractive, I very honestly hope you don't think i was trying to detract from it, i was just replying to Fightinirish's insight on the weight.

    Very cool bike

    Also, craign04, that Giant is really nice...i like giants a lot, and probably would have given them more thought if i hadn't been in love with Cervelo

    This is my new baby, I have had it for 4 weeks and have over 520km (325 mile) on it now. This bike use to be owned by an Australian Paralympian and I bought it off his brother. I got a nice signed photo of him winning 1 of his 2 Olympic Golds last year. He also informed me that he won his first Road World Championship in Italy on this bike...I am so proud to own it

    Cannondale CAAD4 with limited edition paint finish
    Ultegra 9 speed (Tiagra Front and Rear Derailler)
    MAVIC Krysium Elite (Black) wheels

    I am looking at adding a silver and black Fi:zik Arione soon and probably changing to chrome Elite bottle cages.

    It is such a pleasure to ride, I owned a Cannondale 2.8 before this which are renowned for being extremely Stiff and Harsh and I must say that the CAAD4 is a great improvement. I am sure the Carbon Fork has a bit to do with this but the wishbone seatstays with there ergo shape probably help as well.

    frame: 57cm gt titanium
    cranks: dura ace 56-42 172.5mm
    bottom bracket: dura ace octalink
    cassette: dura ace 12-23 9 speed
    chain: wipperman
    derailleurs: dura ace
    brake calipers: dura ace
    pedals: speedplay x2
    brifters: dura ace 9
    handlebars: modolo 40cm
    stem: 120mm -17degree litespeed titanium

    That is a wild looking frame. I know I'm new to this and all, but I've never seen seat stays come up to the top tube like that -- does it offer any advantages or purely for looks?

    it's a GT thing and they've been absorbed by pacific, so mostly you won't see it except for on the mid to late 90's GTs. in theory, it offers a stiffer rear triangle. in practice, it must not offer much since no one else has taken up the design.

    First road bike.
    Bianchi Premio
    Big mix of components but it does have 105 shifters (they look cool in dark grey.) and Mavic wheels.
    I just got back from my first ride. I couldnt be happier. It fits (or seems at least to the first timer) perfect. Very comfortable. I got it a week ago but held off posting it until i had a chance to test it out.


    EDIT: Favorite part about it
