    Yep, Alley Cat champ of Detroit. =p But seriously, they're from races that me and my buddies have thrown. One of them is a 1st place from the biggest race in Detroit yet. In 2007, we had 230+ riders and my team of four finished 1st, so I am still slightly proud of that.

    Hell no. She'll never be a ss/fg. That's why I have my bar/rain/snow/ss/fg bike! But I'm sure that was all in sarcasm, because this board is full of it.

    Well...I like my bike. Sure, it's no $3,000 carbon machine, but I bought her for $400 about three years ago, and I'm damn proud of everything I've learned about wrenching on bikes by doing my own work on her.

    Why do I bother posting here.

    Hey... that's MY bike! Well, a shorter version of it. She looks great! Mine has been nothing but a dream to own. Fast, fun, dependable, and no problems outside of the norm (tuning, occasional flat, etc) & I commute, do long weekend rides, and have done a couple centuries with her. I keep up (and usually drop) all the carbon boys all the time....

    I think the most I want to do with her, over time, is upgrade the seat post, handlebars, and wheels to shed a little weight, but it's hardly necessary. I think I need to get a fresh photo of mine, for posterity.

    Nice to see yours again!

    Was dropping the kids off for a sleep over, noticed a bicycle sitting in the lawn of a neighbor, taped to the top tube was a yellow sheet of paper which read, '$10'. Knock on the door and handed the old man two $5's. No idea what it was other than a early '80's Peugeot, researched and determined it to be a 1984 Peugeot P6 (entry level for them days) road bike. The AZ heat kept this ride in great shape. Broke it down, scraped out all the crusted grease, new tires/tubes/tape, new bar tape, replaced the saddle ('80's Turbo), adjusted/tightened/lubed all else and voila! A fully functioning all original classic.

    2009 Fuji Newest 3.0

    Just about done changing some of the nastier stock parts. Tires are Hutchinson Fusion 2 Kevlar Pro Tech, FSA stem, changed from the disgusting and heavy adjustable stock one, saddle is a Forte Pro SLX, Shimano 600 8 spd cassette, Shimano IG-70 chain, Shimano 105 rear derailleur, some generic Forte pedals with toe clips, and a Cat Eye Mity 8 cyclocomp. Oh, and I removed my in-line brake levers; now the cockpit isn't such a cluster****.

    i love them. certainly recommended. not super flashy, but at the price i got them at w/ team discount, there's no reason not to have them on all my bikes. race wheels, training wheels, road wheels, cross wheels, there's one to do it all.
