Post a picture of your bike and a short description of it. Mine will follow soon.

Here is my bike: http://www.specialized.com/SBCBkMode...6fxuq0o.j27007

My ride is far sharper than the picture shown on the website, and it has some upgrades including a lower set stem, 105 shifters and I hope to get a 105 crank or similar on there soon. I hope to eventually be up to full 105 but im just waiting for the shifters to wear out.

Cannondale R600 CAAD5 upgraded to Ultegra all around except for shifters (I have them but seems pointless to upgrade the 105's) and a just added Fizik Arione - what a saddle. Did 100kms on the airone this weekend, sore legs but no sore butt ! Shimano RD540 SPDL pedals and a Prorace carbon seat-post.

Wow!!! Seems your saddle is way back. That puts a lot of stress on your seatpost and saddle rails. Is your stem long enough?
Otherwise your bike is beautiful.

Hey - you talkin ta me???
Yep the seat is way back, that due to a fitting I had at the LBS. They assured me that it was fine. Bike is a 56 frame, I'm 5'11 and around 90kg (200lbs) and falling. Apparently I have long femurs. I hope the post doesn't break, thet would be a tragedy.

larue 10-31-04 12:11 PM

I've never heard of a seat post breaking like that, I wouldn't worry.

Timo 10-31-04 12:15 PM

With the saddle in that position and 90 kg you're in serious danger. The rails of your saddle could snap, I've seen it happen.

JackStraw 10-31-04 03:38 PM

I have a 2004 Cannondale R800 with Deda 26 Stem and Deda 215 bars. Thompson Elite Seat Post and SLR Sella Italia Saddle, Look pedals, the rest stock.

Bianchi Campione, Chris King Headset, Campy Protons and Campy Centaur Cranks with all Campy Components (for sale if interested)

Cannondale F1000 Mountainbike.

bertt 10-31-04 03:44 PM

Pictures. We need pictures!!!!!

JackStraw 10-31-04 03:47 PM

Yes, Pictures! I will post them ASAP. I just purchased a digital camera and will have them ready to post tomorrow. I love looking at pictures of bikes. My wife finds that disturbing but when compared to porn she does not mind so much. I'll poat tons of pictures if interested in the Bianchi.

I love my bike. This photo is a couple months old though. 2001 LeMond Zurich reynolds 853, I now have a King Ti headset, and Nokon cables. It's 9 spd D.A. w/ti bolts, Zero Gravity brakes, FSA Team issue crankset w/fibre lyte rings, Easton SLX fork, Cinelli ram bar/stem combo, Speedplay x-1 Ti pedals, SLR seat and Alien Carbon post, the wheels are really a lot better than I could have imagined-Open Pro rims, Hugi 240s hubs w/Ti spokes and 47g p/p ti skewers, rolling on Conti supersonics. As you see it it weighs exactly 15.9 lbs. The lightest steel bikes I have seen in a while.

That is *really* nicely set up! I've had my '04 Zurich for over a month now and I'm really happy with my choice, too. Your set-up is probably close to four pounds lighter, I've seen that crank and fork on a Cervelo (I think) at my LBS (LBS owner's new ride) and it was pretty light. Not familiar with the Cinelli or brakes...9 spd D.A. is a nice choice, who needs 10 anyway?

Great bike, congrats!

how does the fork ride? last time I checked, the lemonds used 45mm rake, and the easton fork is 43...did you notice a diff?

BigFloppyLlama 10-31-04 06:23 PM

How are those chainrings working? Have many miles on them, or are they new? I've heard they last about 700mi in dry conditions.

Trev Doyle 10-31-04 07:21 PM

To Phatman, about the fork rake: I must admit that the fork rake thing is a bit too technical for me, but I much prefer these forks to the stock ones that came on the bike, and they are 198 grams lighter!

To Bigfloppyllama, whoever told you that these rings last about 700 miles was bang on! I figure I have put about 1200 kms on them. Although they still roll and shift fine, close inspection reveals a lot of the teeth on the 53 are worn down. I will use them next year, but only at races. Hopefully for a psychological advantage if nothing else.

I am currently installing a set of Storck strong arm cranks w/White industries Ti BB, and TA Specialite AL rings, that will drop the weight another 200 grams, I am excited.

Thanks guys, man I love looking at pictures of bikes, I wish everyone would post theirs

Great bike, congrats!

An 04' Zurich, is that a 1/2 carbon 1/2 Ti or steel? I love the new spine frames!!! The fork you've seen on the Cervelos is most likely the Superlight which strangly is about 50 grams heavier than the one I have. But your right it is the same crank arms. I compared mine actually to the Cervelo R2.5 at the local cervelo dealer in Toronto and I felt like Knig of the world when mine was almost a pound lighter, and I'm riding a 4 lb frame!!!! See ya

Cannondale R2000 2001 model. FUll Ultegra, Cinelli bars, SLR saddle (ouch!) and Spinergy SPOX rims. Its a bullet but only because it has Ryan Baileys signature (2 time Athens gold medallist) on the downtube. Looking at getting a TCR zero soon, the 'Dale will be my hack bike.

Someone on weight weenies had given them a trial run and got just about 700 miles from them. I think they'd probably last a lot longer on a time trial bike due to the decreased amount of shifting between inner and outer chainrings (which probably causes most of the wear). They do look nice though, great looking bike as well.
