    koga.com they have a nice site where you can build up the bike. They only offer Shimano - no SRAM or Campy stuff. The Company is in Holland.

    Hey guys

    New here, I bought my first roadie a few weeks ago.

    It's a Soma Smoothie with mostly Ultegra bits on it. It now has 105 pedals, not the flats in the pic. Better pic to come once I clean the damn thing.

    People notice EVERYTHING on this forum. I love my Allez, which I also got used off craigslist. Enjoy the riding and try to get a real seat or cycling shorts. Using those gel seat covers is OK for a recreational ride but will make you super uncomfortable pretty quickly on the road.

    Thanks for the advice. The gel seat cover is simply covering up the original saddle that came with the bike. I have a pair of riding short and wasn't planning on riding with the gel cover on the saddle, I just took this photo immediately after getting the bike home and didn't take anything off of it yet.

    While on the top, I've been reading quite a bit online about most people seeming to really HATE the stock Allez saddles from this time period. Any advice on a good replacement saddle (without really knowing anything about my "sit bones")? I've never been fitted and, as this is my first road bike, I've never ridden with any other saddles.

No new bike during that time, and now it is hard to get parts for the Campy C-record, especially the Ergo shifters which are pretty worn out after >20,000 miles. The BB, wheel bearings and freehub have all been replaced and repacked numerous times. Now it’s time to retire the faithful TVT ’92 for something more modern.

    What did I get? Well I’ve ridden only Campy from the time of Super Record, gave up tubulars after quitting racing, and enjoy climbing. Here it is:



    Cervelo S2 with Campagnolo Record 11 spd.
    Nice, very nice. Now, get a saddle, wheels, and bottle cages that complement the rest of the bike. They look very out of place. Otherwise like I said, very very nice bike.
    Arguing with ignorant people is an exercise in futility. They will bring you down to their level and once there they will beat you with their overwhelming experience.

    @BarracksSi & zstjohn: Considering it's the team bike for the Skil-Shimano team, it's probably a lion instead of a cougar as it's a Dutch team

    Pretty damn nice bike though!

    First post here. Here is my Isaac Impulse. Picked it up a few months back for a great deal.
    It has 7900 cranks, 7800 brifters and derailleurs, cane creek brakes and mavic cxp 22 rims.
    This is my second roady and this one actually makes it fun to ride. I previously had a Giant OCRII
    and I could not stand that bike. Just did not fit me right. The Isaac is like a glove.

    My latest build. I didn't really need a new bike, but I got everything for a screaming deal.

    Fuji keeps impressing me. I really think I will go with them for my next bike.

    The new bike looks amazing!

    Love the Fuji. I have ahd a thing for Fuji bikes for a while now. I haven't really found one that takes it for me though. This might be the bike, especially with the Sram RED.

    Is this better? I got some race wheels for my SLC finally, the saddle, and bottle cages have been on since I built her, but she needed some fast wheels for sure.

    New wheels and 2000 miles passed on the bike, so needed some pics. Too bad it was early in the morning and had bad lighting! Think I should ditch the wheel decals?

    that was my first bike, it treated me well for about 4000 miles until I got something new. I'd ditch the decals, it'll look a lot "cleaner." I don't know if you like the saddle but I found that when I switch it out for somethng firmer, I felt a lot stronger on the bike. that seat almost feels like it has suspension at high cadence.

    I average 100-110 and I can ride to 140 without bouncing and never even notice it. I think I may just have gotten lucky and it fits me decent. Only reason I replaced the wheels is because I dented the cheapo Alex's. I actually tried an old felt one I had laying around and went back to this one because it was more comfortable. Butt ugly, but it seems to work.
