That Pinarello is smokin'. I was down to either an FP3 or Cervelo S2. The Pinarello was great, but just didn't feel quite as nice as the S2. But that thing is gorgeous. Enjoy.

I've had mine posted up a while ago and here's a repost with some minor upgrade(s).

It happened back then just before Christmas when I was at my LBS and managed to score a great deal on those LW Rear D's. It was a really sick deal so I just felt so compelled to get them! :p

Still one of the nicest bikes on here. (and probably the most expensive too!).

It's not light but there are some nice features that beefed this frame up for bigger riders like me. Since Spectrum Powder Coating is right here in town, I'm thinking of partial custom powder coat once I come up with a design. I had been riding 60, 61, and 62cm frames...steel, carbon, and aluminum. I've very happy with the feel of titanium but mostly, it's the 64cm size and geometry that have made the difference.

How flippin tall are you? That bike makes those 700c wheels look like something off of a matchbox car. It is a great build, but I always find anything over a 61cm looks really strange. I bet the titanium feels great though!

Miss riding it in comfortable weather. Haha.

I don't particularly like Time bikes a whole lot, but that thing is awesome. The parts you chose to build it with are all top shelf. Well done.

I should put my glasses on - I thought it said POLICE no Dolce.

That Land Shark is great! Slawta is on my want to get a frame done-someday list of builders. Really cool stuff. I must say I would have wanted a fillet brazed one though...

I really was going to get a steel but John made me a deal I couldn't refuse so I went with the carbon. When I get a cross or mtb from him it will most likely be steel.

My bike has come a long ways since I got her a year ago. She may last another 6 months to a year, but a new frame and components are definitely next on the list.

Bad cellphone quality, though it was a nice ride. First ride in 3 months, I've been slacking it 'a little'. Got a new job that was twice as far away, snow came messing up the roads, et cetera. Did a 40km ride today, to get back into shape.

New Bike
 
Hi,

After a long time reading through these Forums I thought it was time to post my new training bike for 2011.
The bike is a Ridley Noah RS 2011, the new frame for 2011 that is a cheap baby sister of their regular Noah frame. A little less aero and the cheaper carbon used makes this frame about half the price of the normal one.
I haven't had the chance of riding it yet, guess I have to wait until April when the snow and ice is gone.

Frame: Noah RS 2011 Small
Fork: Noah RS
Seatpost: Ridley Noah RS
Stem: Ritchey Carbon WCS
Handlebars: Ritchey Superlogic evolution
Seat: 4ZA Stratos (A Prologo Scratch Pro is on the way)
Groupset: Shimano Ultegra 6700 with Dura Ace 7900 crank
Wheels: Mavic Cosmic Carbone SL
Pedals: Speedplay Zero Stainless Steel
Tyres: Continental GP4000S
Tubes: Vredestein Latex

Weight is 7,8kg as pictured, not really WW but not bad for the price. (and with those wheels) :D

For the ones interested, this was the 2010 training bike. :D

Thanks. Made a not so good looking bike into a decent looking one. Ready to ditch the frame and lame 105 components though to drop the weight and the bikesdirect name! Still weighs 22lbs as pictured.

I've done a fair bit of upgrading since I last posted in here:

(as close to a white garage door as I can find)
http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-..._3230308_n.jpg

New: Compact bars, Specialized Toupe Pro saddle, Soul s3.0SL wheels, Thompson Masterpiece seatpost, Kool Stop pads and lastly Gatorskin tires. Now I just need to get rid of the doodoo FSA triple and I'll be a happy camper. :]

Spanky 01-22-11 04:34 PM

Upgrade from a 2006 soloist team.

Just finished building.
