    My new/used Trek

    Here's my Trek 1000 that I traded a computer for. Pretty basic except for the Shimano 600 upgrades and the biopace cogs. Was riding an old Schwinn Super le Tour but decided I needed something lighter and faster so I could TRY to keep up with the group. Turns out all I needed was a better bike and some shoes. Now I'm a biking fool and can hang with the pack on my own.

    Newby's first (decent) bike

    My new/used Trek 1000. Was riding an ole Schwinn. Good bike but HEAVY by today's standards.

    This one has the Shimano 600 upgraded cranks and hubs. Didn't know why I couldn't hang with the group until I got on a better ride. Luckily for me, clunking around on the old Super le Tour's excess weight gave me some physical training the other guys weren't getting. Now I can chug right on by them on those nasty inclines.

    PC for a Trek

    Trek 1000 Pretty basic... Shimano 600 cranks and hubs and biopace cogs. Was riding an old Schwinn Super le Tour but decided I needed something lighter and faster so I could TRY to keep up with the group. Turns out all I needed was a better bike and some shoes. The tonage from the Schwinn was great for training though. Now I can hang with the pack on my own.

    I've waited a while to post pics of my bike. Here it is:




    It's definately not the prettiest bike. I bought it second hand (Im an uni student) and giants are very common in my city. I didnt really know if I was going to like it at first but its grown on me. I like the compact geometry. I got it as an upgrade to an old 12 speeder. Its my only form of transportation. (in the wet I get a bus), hopefuly this summer I will do some racing for fun.

    It came with michelin proraces on it, but I destroyed the rear one by running over a sharp rock which cut it. Replaced it with an armidillo. While mixing tyres like this is very anti-OCP it works quite well, I still get good handling from the front end but good flat protection and a long lasting tyre on the rear -where its important, Ill probably continue to do this.

    While the tiagra gruppo is only tiagra it works fine, and in reality unless I seriously go racing getting anything higher is an indulgence I will partake in when Im earning good money after my degree. The triple? well thats what it had on it, I dont use the small chain wheel but its good to have for reassurance. Newcastle is flat but if Ive ridden a long way that day the slopes that Newcastle does have are incredibly steep. Luckily they are short.

    I also replaced the at this stage crummy stock bar tape with specialized bar phat tape. Comfy for a person who doesnt wear gloves. It was my first time wrapping a set of bars, and if I do say myself Ive done a good job. Why red electical tape? It was all I could find and I didnt notice the black tape that came with the bar tape.

    Originally I put clipped pedals on it. As I wasnt used to riding a more modern road bike. (I upgraded from a 12 speeder, so I took the pedals off that.) Ive bought a set of spd shoes, and you guessed it, they are also specialized. (The shop that I go to stocks specialized and has the best customer service, I will when I know more/need certain parts buy online). Damn I love clipless.

    So Ive done some minor upgrades to it, future ones will be, saddle, seat post (the single clamp is a piece of ****), stem, then a set of deep Vs. (I am light ~67kg but the roads are absolute crap and I prefer strong stuff).

    While again it isn't a beautiful bike. For me its great, good enough, but not great enough that if I broke it or it got stolen I wouldn't lose a whole heap of sleep over it. But I love it - its grown on me.

    I hope you like my bike

    This is my new bike, a Gios A-90 equipped with Campy Veloce. It's certainly a different and faster ride than my steel touring/commuting bike and the blue is so nice!

    That is the sweetest frame I have ever seen! Lazer etched Ti filled with carbon, so awesome. I don't know about the triple crank or the red tires and handlebar tape, but that frame is sweet!!

    Yes the frame is sweet. The triple is for all the Colorado mountains around here.

    Nice looking. I love the black/white/red scheme. Is it for TT or Triathlon?
