All CAAD 7's that are 54cm and under have a slightly sloping top tube. If you look at pics of Simoni's or Astrola's bikes you will notice it.

haven't seen a norco here yet, but I only had a brief skim read so forgive me if I missed it.
This is my first serious road bike with norco alum. frame with carbon front forks. Has 105 gearing set, had it 8 months
see www.blue-brontosaurus.tk for a pic, go to the bfb screen.

My God I am in LOVE!!!! That is the COOLEST looking color scheme I've seen yet. I am looking at my next bike (Now I have to figure out how to hide it from my wife..."Honey, I thought you had a RED bike"? " No it's alway's been yellow...are you ok?")

Though I could do this color scheme in a Project One....but, I need the compact frame like you do......

late 70's/early 80's DARK purple pinarello frame columbus tubing
full black 105 with the exception of FSA 'cross cranks with 48T/38T chainrings. running old mavic bullhorns with the STis. it feels like i'm driving a spaceship with everything right there, although both the frame and i would prefer to use downtube shifters.

this is my first experiment with a road bike all my other bikes are trackies.

edit: oh yeah, the front wheel isn't the normal 105 wheel beacuse my friend was still building it when i took the picture. and actually, right now the bike is upside-down and wheel-less due to some "technical difficulties." all i want to do is ride the damn thing, even though i hate gears and coasting feels weird.

This is my new bike, I've been on a Giant Cypress comfort bike to now. I've got the Allez Vita last Saturday and rode farther and faster than ever before on my first real ride with it. Gotta love it!

Nice bike. Better watch out though... all the Campy Purists are going to come down on you for mixing Campy wheelsets with Shimano drivetrain. :D

BTW, that seems to be quite a steep down-pitch on that saddle... or is it an optical illusion?

Bikesick 07-07-03 11:13 AM

I know some people aren't going to like it, but hey! they were the best wheels for the $!! <shrug> And personally, I think it's cool to be able to mix Dura-Ace and Record (but what do i know). Also, it's a sign of the times; Campagnolo wouldn't make Shimano compatible freehubs if they didn't feel they needed a larger share of the wheelset market.

You're observant! Yea, the seat is pitched down a few degrees. I've found it to resolve a health issue for me and it's more comfortable so.... Here again I'm being unconventional.:D

Absolutely nothing wrong with either of the things you did in my eyes.... but then it's not like you even needed approval anyways. :D However, now you've got me curious... what health conditions require that type of seat position? If you don't mind me asking.

Ahh... do you find that position puts a lot more weight onto your arms/hands? It seems like it would. I suppose building up a little more upper body strength would compensate for that wouldn't it?

Actually, i was having swelling of my prostrate and subsequent bleeding if you can believe that. I understand that some men quit riding because of it. .....oh yea, and it helps you to avoid the numb sack deal too.

It can tend to make you slide forward if the angle is too steep, and that can load up your arms a bit, and that's not comfortable either. So a little experimentation with the angle is all that's needed to get it setup. Just a few degrees can make a huge difference.

Here's my new ride. I just picked it up yesterday. It's a Fuji Marseille with 853 frame, Ultegra components (Ritchey crank). I added a Cateye Astrale computer and I'll probably remove the reflectors. They're blinding me! I also have my first clipless pedals, but for right now I have Winwood clips on the pedals until I'm fully comfortable with the bike. Then I'll learn to ride clipless--hopefully with a minimal amount of pain!

This is my first road bike since I rode a Schwinn 10-speed as a kid. I'm pretty psyched for it!

Beautiful Fuji!

I have an old cannondale 1987 model, still in good shape. I like the fuji Marselle, very nice bike, may have to give it a test ride, if I can find one in my size.

wza97 07-09-03 02:30 PM

What size are you Costanza? I had a hard time finding a 61cm frame. The Fuji warehouse had some and I had to have Performance order one. I rode the 61cm Roubaix and it fit nicely. The geometry is pretty much the same.
