    RDUBBZ,
    Nice BMC. I love to see more of them pop up on the forum. How long have you had it? What were you riding previously? I have ridden a Team Machine since 06, best bikes in the world.

    Best bang for the buck, $300 for the wheelset, 1580 grams, bladed spokes, Ive hit a lot of pot holes, ride over rough roughs constantly and it stays true. Plus, neuvations customer service is top rate. I had a very slight play on my back wheel and they sent me a new one in 2 days. I just put the old one in the box the new one came in and sent it back.

    I am sure I posted my Le Tour and My FCR in here, but I just picked up a new road bike about an hour ago. So here is my 07 Specialized Allez.

    I know it isn't a bike yet, but it will be soon. The joker's I got it from assured me it was coming with the new 3T replacement fork, but instead I got a Wolf SL that will most likely kill me. So I am waiting to get that taken care of now, and for more parts to arrive. Going SRAM Red, KCNC Cranks, and Brakes, Syntace Bars, 3T Stem, and eventually 404s.

    FWIW There's nothing wrong with the Wolf SL forks if the sleeve goes into the head tube. The only problem was that they weren't initially supplied with the proper length sleeve, so if you used anything more than like 15mm headset cap then the sleeve wouldn't go into the head tube. The forks themselves are fine though. I went through all this with True Temper and Cervelo 2 years ago.

    After spending some considerable time looking at other people's rides, i thought it was about time to add my own. This is a 2008 Giant Bowery SS/Fixed (flipflop hub) that i have used for 5months whilst here in Sydney studying. I absolutely love this little bike, not big and flashy just simple and fun to ride. I am pleased to annouce she will be returning back to the UK with me for more rides together, albeit slightly chiller and wetter.

    Conforming to the bike posting rules i hope :S...




    Not a garage door background, but a Sydney city scape must be allowed?




    The bike and me the owner, i feel not enough people put a face to their rides



    Cheers, Bigmiksears

    Good to know. I personally like the Wolf SL fork better than the 3T. It appears to be more aero than the 3T Funda Pro. Not to mention it is a bit lighter. It's too bad I'd rather use it, but unfortunately it is destined for a trash can.

    If the rear skew QR is on the drive side it can get in the way of the RD. The front QR of the skew should match the rear for "symmetry".
