    Agreed, although I'm not a fan of the basic Easton kit. It's like having a hot wife and not letting her dress up all fancy... or uh something.

    Had to re-post my Colnago.

    New bar tape and saddle for Father's Day.

    Rode this morning, very serene.

    2009 Specialized Allez Sport Double Compact

    Added a shorter stem, computer, and Specialized 700x25cc Armadillos All Purpose tires. Yes, it adds some weight, but I live in Idaho. With the stock Mondos, I had one flat on my maiden voyage, another flat two days later, and finally said the heck with it... the first day I road the bike with the Armadillos I inspected the tires, (of course). Butcher's Bill... one thorn in the back and FOUR in the front tire. Zero flats.

    Updated:
    Shimano 105 shifter stop shifting, so replaced w/ '09 rival shifters and force RD

    Shimano to Sram: Like previously mentioned, shimano felt a bit more smoother, but I love the hard "clunks" of Sram. At only about 100 miles I'm still at a toss up over which ergo's I like better

    Can anyone help me Identify my classic Bianchi bike?

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/mtcarey...16910/sizes/l/

    It has Campy derailleurs and I think that it is from the early 70's
    The decals are the same on the down tube as they are on the seat tube
    I picked it up at goodwill for $10. It's in rough condition but My dad and me are going to work on it.

    mtchoody - I'll bet someone can over in the Classic/Vintage forum. You might try re-posting there, if no-one helps you here (unfortunately, no one will, because technically you're in the wrong forum, and wrong thread, and this place is a tad ridiculous).

    Ha! A bike against it is the least of its problems. The car has thousands of track miles on it, and a hundred + days of SCCA events. The paint is beat, and it's on its 2nd transfer case, suspension, motor mounts, etc.

    Leaning the bar tap of the bike might actually make it cleaner

    Fast cars can only be made cooler by heavy use and abuse.

    As I said before, I love that bike. Had a look on Stevens' website, they're not even that expensive imo. Might save up some money to get me one too.

    LOL, I could tell the bike was babied way more than the car. It looks like it has been accumulating brake dust on the wheels since it left the lot. At least you got the right color of wheels.

    I actually have 4 sets of wheels for the car - ranging from winter snowtires to 285/30/18 R-comps. Running track brake pads - I don't even bother cleaning brake dust on the factory wheels anymore, the dust is too corrosive. In case you were wondering, the "right color of wheels" is factory issue.

    primoV8 - tell us a little about the Kestrel - how do you like it? Maybe a little about its ride, smoothness, build quality? I've always thought the bike was a steal.

    Yeah I know, I am from Ohio. All people do around here, is mod those things out for 1/4 mile racing. Aren't those factory wheels made by BBS or Enkei or somebody? I do see a few at Mid Ohio during the NASA events, and SCCA. My friend has an MR he just ran like a ran a 12.3X at the DSM Shootout.

    This may explain the new signature. I was gogin to get the upgraded "Force" model, but it just has Deda aluminum tubing and a non-replaceable derailleur hanger, which isn't worth it to me.
