Adriano, are both wheels 28" or is it an old TT rig with 26" in front?
it looks like it used to be a 650 front and 700 rear. I wonder how it'll handle? Wicked looking bike though.

"Oh, to be 60 again!"
Since I just got into cycling last year, I am still tooling around on a Trek 1.2T that I bought brand new. I have 2 gripes, triples make it easy to cheat, and the shifters due to those trippled, that thumb trigger sucks unfortunately if I want to get in drops and go, just when you are cresting the hill, come back up to the hoods so you can shift :/
One of these days I will upgrade to a better road bike, but for my first road bike and my first year back in the saddle after probably 20 years, I absolutely love the bike and have a soft spot in my heart for Trek as they have treated me very well.
If you find yourself riding in the drops often, you could tilt your bars as to bring back of the drops to more of a horizontal and rotated your brifters down a bit so to be able to reach the thumb lever without straining your wrists.
Hope those ideas might help.
"change is the only constant"
Just started in on the cycling gig about a month ago.
Right now I am riding a basically stock 2008 Fuji Newest 3.0. Only upgrades are a Serfas Aria Saddle and Look Keo Classic Pedals.
Plan to do some upgrades as I get more into cycling.

Sheldon says it's an '89 -- I would've sworn I bought it in '87 or '88.

New tires and brake pads last night prompted a minor cleaning, so I thought I'd make a photo op out of it as well (yes, I didn't quite fully shift onto the big ring in the living room).
My all-around race/training/commuting bike. Season #3. '07 Allez Elite with new wheels over the winter. She likes the crits...
the drivetrain is not adjusted at all, of course!
^ why the interrupters? just curious... I assume personal preference.

im not sure whether ill be using one, both, or neither of the levers, but the top position would be more useful if i could brake from it.
the chainrings are 38-56 in that picture. itll be a stretch for it to work, but if it doesnt, i have a 42 on the inner that i dont have any doubts about at all.
New to the forum, and do not have pictures of my bikes, sorry guys. I have been riding a 2002 Raleigh SC 30 Hybrid bike for about 7 years. Just bought my first road bike a 2008 Allez Elite in the Quickstep colors. Everything on the bike is stock, so my pictures would not show anything new and or exciting. Don't know what took me so long to get a "real" road bike, but have loved every mile on my Allez!
Just got my new Specialized Allez Compact. I'm new to riding and this is my first road bike. I'm hoping to learn a lot from the folks on here.
Fork was cut too short, had to do a 12 degree rise.
i took my maiden spin last night!
