    Love that Promachine

    I've always been a fan of BMC, something about their bikes is extremely attractive.

    Call me crazy, but I don't like the Brooks on the Time. It looks good on the other two though.

    I understand, but my butt sure likes it though. I'm not a terribly fast guy but I ride for many hours at a time and Brooks is the only saddle that I've found that doesn't become the deciding factor in how long I ride.

    Here's my new baby. It's a 2010 CAAD9 1 with Dura-Ace shifters and derailleurs. I've only put about 400 miles on it so far but compared to the bike it replaced - a 2002 Trek 2300 - it's like a sports car.

    That co-motion is beautiful.

    my new oldschool bike, built on a Spanish Massi frame (not an Italian Masi)
    Attachment 157036
    i got the frame cheap on ebay and the components are mostly from the old bike, the frame of which you can see in the background. the front derailleur is a new ultegra (from ebay), the old one was a clamp on. other than that, its shimano exiage 400EX parts, with biopace chainrings. my friend found the front wheel in a dumpster. the rear wheel is a 7 speed (126 mm) so i had to space it with washers to fit in the 8/9/10 frame (130 mm). as a result, the rear derailleur doesn't have enough throw to get into the lowest cog. i need to replace the rear wheel anyway though, its heavy, ugly, not very aero, and has shot bearings that make a confidence inspiring clunking sound. i also need a new saddle, i stole this one from my mountain bike to replace the seat from the old road bike - it was meant for the other gender. this one isn't much better though.

    I got my new bike 2 weeks ago. Before that, I hadn't been on a bike for over a few minutes since I was a kid. My first impression is that the seat really hurts. I am hoping that it will get better the more I ride. If not, I will check out other saddles.

    It's normal to experience soreness if you haven't been on a bike in a while. You will most likely get used to it.

    Don't go out and put something like this on your bike: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Bell-Sport...ndingMethod=rr

    I have considered it. I am a obvious a novice so bear with me. Do you have to get a certain kind of shoe? i.e., if I get Shimano pedals, do I also have to get Shimano shoes?

    Nope. Those Shimano's are SPD-L. Honestly, most shoes are going to be compatible with the pedals. I would recommend Specialized shoes. They are compatible with LOOK style pedals, SPD's, SPD-SL's, and Speedplays.

    It's not the shoes that are compatible with the pedals, but the cleats. The cleats need to be compatible with the shoes. Best way to go is fit some shoes at bike stores and see which fit your feet best.
    Get pedals and cleats to go with that, but order all of it (even the shoes) through the internet. That could save you some serious money.

    this may look a bit funny and odd but yes it is a 1150 zipp behind a colnago prima with a stand, this pic is quite old and recently just got some record to squize in so it is only display concept.
    i ride it every day.
    some of the custom fact:
    small frame 51'
    weight approx 10kg with the zipp and the campyHEAVY DUTY)
    campy groupset: record(it quite mixing between 2008 with 1988)
    colnago prima alu as mentioned
    front wheel: bontrager select(quite wack)clincher
    rear wheel: zipp 1150 disc tubular
    700c
    2-8speed
    this is not just only training bike but it is a dairly bike
    should i really need to take the stand out?

    i think i will receive my secondary bike in another 1/2 year
    zipp 2001 series 1 allsoft 1992, it is old but it is cheap

    I posted these in another thread, but I figured I would put some new pics up of my current love. I just put SRAM Red on her, as well as a few other things since the last photo session.

    [QUOTE=OCLV Assassin;11023153]

    Shifters!

    No more goofy derailleur cables cluttering things up. I used a zip tie from the Garmin mount to tuck the derailleur cables to the stem, in an aero fashion.

    Full bike shot!

    And the side shot straight on.
