    Here's my Schwinn Super Sport - full Suntour Cyclone components. Rescued it for $80 with a destroyed rear wheel and bar tape in shreds. It was sitting in the driveway of a man who I originally was going to buy a Univega ten-speed from - when I saw the Schwinn, I knew I had to get it instead. It was light, good-looking, and woefully neglected. I talked him into selling it (he was very reluctant at first), and after a bit of negotiating it was mine.

    In the past years and through different upgrades (new wheelset, levers, calipers, tape, freewheel, saddle) I've managed to turn it into something that I really enjoy riding. It's quite svelte at twenty-one pounds, especially for an 80s steel framed road bike. Here we go:

    Really? That's awesome. I agree - the frame's great. Do you know what year this is?

    Post some pics, man.

    I'm pretty sure the original wheels were Araya 700c. (Actually I went and checked, and yes they were.) Currently I've got a pair of 700c Wolber 36-spoke rims laced to Shimano 600 hubs.

    I just built up a Rock Lobster scandium road bike. pretty light, have yet to weigh it, but I think its less than 16.5 pounds. I took it for a 40 mile ride today and its a sweet ride! built with fsa crank/ti bb, zero setback seatpost and headset. campy shifters, front derailluer, an old 7 speed dura ace rear derailliur, zero gravity brakes, 3t stem, flite saddle, salsa handlebar and real hubs with tubular rims.

    Paul Sadoff at RL knows how to build bike! the handling is great and it just wants to fly up the hills. I really like the zero gravity brake calipers...the cam action is the best. it starts off with a light rub and then the calipers smoothly bits harder when I pull back a little more...very good modulation.

    Arguing with ignorant people is an exercise in futility. They will bring you down to their level and once there they will beat you with their overwhelming experience.

    the pinarello iin the background s not mine, I'm building it up for a friend. the yellow bike is a Lobster cross bike made of easton ultra lite tubing, the orange bike is a paramount track bike. two more road bikes are not in the photos: ritchey logic and a kestrel 200 ems. I feel better everytime I go down there!

    Update

    I know it has only been a few days, but I already did a couple of updates to my bike:







    I switched the cranks from the FSA 36/50 compact to the aluminium Record 39/53, and added my S-Works handlebar. And, then I finished building this bike:

    I'm not quite sure, as the frame was given to me by a friend. I think it's circa 1998.

    Does this homemade commuter count as a road bike?
