[QUOTE=eMwolB;9069081]Ok, let's try this again...
Sweet collection of bikes for a host of applications. Could you share your impressions of the Topolinos on your Litespeed? Thanks for sharing your pics.
Lead me not towards temptation, for I shall find it myself !
My 2008 Devinci CX1. My first road bike. I'm lovin' it!
Possibly directions. I've taped some to my top tube once for an "alley cat" race.
My new (to me) baby! flat tires and the rear wheel is cracked but everything else seems ok.
Sigh, you guys put me to shame but i'll post a pic of my ride regardless.
Its an old marin, i think '93, with full shimano 105 groupo. I paid only $200 for it, I think i got a hot deal.. ?
The tape might be new but it does not match the bike. Go with black tape and a new black saddle. And please put that handlebar is a correct position! Otherwise it's a lovely bike, more 1990 than 1993 and with a 105 gruppo that looks to be in good condition. You did WHAT to the rear triangle?!?!
As for the year, im not exactly sure, this is the only link that ive been able to find, but the specs somewhat vary
Also, for accuracy's sake, here's a pic of the bike in its current state.

Here's the latest iteration of my bike. Lowered the stem 15mm, changed from a 10 to 6 degree stem, cut fork, and my wife bought me race wheels.
Added white bartape to my Giant to go with the white saddle. Something looks off, can anyone else spot it? I sure can't.
And I also finished my Serotta backup/backup race bike. Yes, that's a downtube shifter you see. I figured I'd do something I've always wanted, and scratch the left STI for a DT lever.
::EDIT:: I just noticed how huge a difference there is between the two bikes in size. The Giant is a Small with a 110 stem and the saddle all the way back on the rails, and the Serotta is a square 55 cm with a 120 stem and the saddle all the way back.

Also my TT bike in race trim. I've got the extensions set at their widest (90mm from center of bar) and the arm pads are also at their widest. It works for me. I've tried narrow, I've tried the Landis, none of it feels that great.
The seat is some OEM saddle we took off of a new BMX bike, it's cheap, wide at the front, well padded, and is short enough to bring me back to 5 cm behind the BB center, but not too short so that it's UCI illegal.
