    Classic Specialized Epic Carbon Frame Road Bike, circa '91
    Nickname: "Iron Man" per my 6 yr old grandson, due to the color (burgundy/gold).

    Carbon frame, lugged, aluminum dropouts. Has a Co Mo fork, at that time they couldn't make an economical and light CF fork strong enough. Full 105 SIS gruppo (down tube shifters.)

    Still in great condition, no corrosion. All joints tight. Rides sweet, smooth and fast. Pretty clean, with a few cosmetic scratches. Original BG seat, pretty comfortable. Indexed down tube shifters work perfect despite all the years and miles. Dam, I wish this baby was 2 cm bigger. Alas, after many months and sweet miles, I'll be parting with it. Too small for me, couldn't make enough adjustments to fit it. After I rode this though, I was convinced carbon frame is the way to go.

    Shimano 105 group, 14 speed, cranks, shifters, brakes
    Wober GTX rims
    Hutchinson Tires
    FSA Cabon wrap seatpost
    Joy Tech C90 hubs
    New Shimano SPD compatible pedals

    Please clarify: brifters or downtube shifters? I think I see both in the pix.

    Very good bike. She borrowed a friend's 06 Roubaix Pro for her first triathlon and really liked it. She "took to it like a fish to water" she says. She wanted the same bike and we found one at Performance. Great deal and good components for the price. It's lighter than my Synapse. Saddle will probably need to be replaced for something more woman-specific, but everything else is great.

    Here are some reviews I found when we were looking at Fuji:

    Looks like cable stops. My girlfriend's bike is like that. Might have been downtube shifters at one point, but when the STI was added, the shifter mounts became cable stops.

    Started out with mountain bike but then fall in love with road bike. This is my first road bike. Everything is stock except the bottle cages and new saddle.

    My first road bike. Motobecane Grand Sprint.
    I was laying in bed staring at the stars wondering where the heck is my ceiling?

    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.

    Great looking bike - and the matching water bottles fit the overall scheme.

    Thanks! I just wish I had more time to ride. In regards to the Topoloinos...I recently purchased the Litespeed. It came with 2 sets of wheels; Topolino and Cane Creek (forgot model) - I have only put on a couple of hundred miles so far however like them alot. They are light and absorb shock very well.

    Possibly directions. I've taped some to my top tube once for an "alley cat" race.

    yeah its a 34x32. the reason for that is cause i'm training for newtons revenge in july. the crankset for the race is actually a 22-32. so yeah i guess i'm just doing lots of climbing and im using that crankset and gearing so that i can climb and keep up on local rides.
