Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Almost embarrassed to show the two I'm working with now after seeing all the sweet bikes everyone has.

My current training bike is a 2003 Schwinn Prelude, Surprisingly gives a great training ride as well as my Univega Specialissimo I have in Arizona.
My new project bike is a 2001 Kestrel 300 EMS Carbon frame I bought off Craigslist for a whopping $85.00, Need to repair top tube thanks to some bike mechanic who did not know where to clamp bike. Hope they meet your approval.

if I wasn't racing, campy 11 would be the way to go... the wheel pits/ support vehicles usually have shimano/sram 10spd

at least you picked the lesser of the two evils

i really dont blame you at all. i really do not like shimano but do not have any experience with sram road groups. its a great build. if you gave it to me i wouldnt change a thing.

edit: well, maybe the saddle. i would give it a shot though.

Certainly not lateral- the matte black sl3 is one of the nicest frames anywhere!

This is going to sound stupid... What is the difference between a 'regular' Specialized, and an S-Works?

I just finished building up a F. Moser Leader AX with a Campy 10 speed Record group. Velocity aero head rims (white with blue nipples; front wheel laced radial, rear laced 3 cross), Nitto stem, white Nokon cable housing and a Ritchey wcs seatpost.
This is my best bike yet. A 19.04lb STEEL frame bike.

Until the matte SL3, I had never really considered owning a Specialized. The red/black swoosh paint doesn't really do anything for me. The matte is
pure sex, and I've been drooling over my teammate's frame since he got it. The white w/ black logos frame is hot too, but the other visual schemes
are a definite rung or two down the ladder if you ask me.

It's a great bike with an even better color scheme.

That sloping top tube is the only thing that puts me off about Specialized.

when I mentioned standard or regular I meant non bb30 bottom bracket.. sorry for the confusion, but the s-works is simply their highest end model. The new matte black one I got is a module which comes bb30 and a specialized crank.

fix the link! it sounds great.

my 60cm tommasini was about the same weight when it was built up with record 10spd, eurus wheels, some carbon bits, and a threadless fork. now she is about 20.5 with a mix of all aluminum campagnolo parts and the threaded fork (this includes a heavy michie seatpost, c record cranks, and "8spd" ergos converted to 10spd)

I'm curious... I look at that BMC and I wonder how I'd put that in my Park repair stand. Is there a new generation of repair stands for the odd shaped tubes on today's cf bikes?

btw, that bike is awesome.

At the moment I ride a CARRERA TDF LIMITED EDITION which I got due to being broke and desperate to get out on a bike (any bike!) but I am currently looking into getting a £600 TREK or SPECIALIZED, I would welcome recomendations....

i use a Park PRS-25 with the new micro-adjust head for my SLR01...no issues. The micro-adjust is a no-brainer when working with carbon.

Check out the video demo...
