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

Moser M76 frame with a mishmash of parts. Dura-Ace shifters/derailleurs, Ultegra brakes, and FSA SLK Cranks.

Not sure why everyone hates Schwinn. They still sell very good, handsome road bikes.

I love my new Schwinn. Couldn't be happier. Your Peleton looks like a great ride.

Agree. The tops of the bars should be close to being level. If he wants to lower the bars then flip the stem. That positions can't be good for the wrists.

I love seeing setups like this. It means the rider is enjoying their bike more than worrying about what others think. Does look pretty whack though.

Ah, I see must be. Perhaps I talked to you about the Team Machine frame a while back. Either way, congrats! Bike looks amazing!

BMCs are Hot! If they keep up making these sick frames, I will definitely get one as my next bike. In a few years unfortunately...

Here it is, a SuperSix, 95% complete. Still missing the weirdo cups to interface with the BB30, so I can get the Campy crank on.

The catalog shows the color a lot more blue than this near black specimen. Yes, it's supposed to be blue/white!! But, with an employee discount and 4 day delivery from the Cannondale warehouse, I'm not the one to complain about such details.

The group is Chorus, which seems like the best value. I didn't want to invest in that 11 speed chain peening tool that Park makes, so for now I used a SRAM 10 speed Quick Link. Ordered the Forster 11 speed specific link.

Compact crank, 12-27 cassette, size 58.

The stock bars were too wide and with this modern funky shape, so I had to swap for a retro looking ITM set. I also flipped the stem, threw out the Fizik hatchet, and got some Easton EA90SL wheels.

16.6 lbs as pictured.

It's kinda heavy(19.5lbs without my riding kit eg under-saddle bag, mini-pump), but it has full Ultegra 6600 and decent wheels. I plan on upgrading the bars/seatpost/stem and that should save some weight... Eventually I'll upgrade to a better frame using the components from this bike, but that's a ways off!

I'm a slow newbie and I like my bike. 19mph averages can only improve!
