    yea i worked as a pharmacist tech, part time bank teller, and bar back for awhile, lucky for me my car didn’t need any repairs for like 8 months running, now however she wants new shocks for winter.... so much for a snowboard, ahh well, anyway hope you enjoy yours, im goin to clean her and go for a ride now actually, its a great fall day here, not many more left i dont think....winter trainer time I just need to figure out which to get,

    yes this is my first real road bike so I am still adjusting. I have rotated the handlebars a bit more so the brakes are lower, i.e. moved the bar clockwise when viewing the bike from the right hand side- is this what you meant?

    My new ride that arrived today. I haven't even ridden it yet: 2005 Specialized Sequoia Elite. Cant wait to get out tomorrow. Random notes: the carbon fork and stays with Zerz inserts are beautiful; bike shipped with the wrong stem, it is supposed to be adjustable, new one on its way. The crank and rear dearaulieur are very sharp in black. (Pics suck, sorry) I have a bad neck that prevents long rides. I bought this bike with the hope that that will change.

    That's what I meant, but I think I'm talking about the opposite of what you are. If you look at most of the other bikes with drops, the ends are pointed slightly downward (usually to a point somewhere between the rear dropout and the brake) while yours has the end of the bars pointed towards the seatpost. Seems like it would put excessive pressure on your hands if you tried to stay in the hoods too long. But if it works for you, ignore me.

    After looking @ the pic, it does appear that the bike has NO pedals. However, it's just the Speedplays color fading into the pavement. Look a bit closer!

    Ok I was optimising for riding in the drops (the bottom bits of the bars) but as this is my first real roadbike I hadnt thought about riding in the hoods (the top part of the bar). I have rotated the bars back now as you suggest and will try out this configuration. Thanks for the tips.

    Yup. I'm normally not one to buck-up for a paint job, but I didn't like the stock paint job in 2002, and the retro look just got me!

    Here's my Raleigh - old, steel 10-speed, with Suntour components. Weighs a ton, but rides like a dream. I can't wait to upgrade to a real road bike, but for now I really enjoy this bike.

    atlas928, I did my first century in June on my 1978 Raleigh Grand Prix 10 speed! What a great bike! I recently traded it off to a friend who was attempting to ride a bike that was WAY to small for him. The Grand Prix was a perfect fit.

    What you have there is a "Classic" road bike. Take good car of it and enjoy the ride!
