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

The frame I'm on today was for sale locally for at least 6 months and in the end I just had to have it. I would still like to have a CX similar to the old hybrid for go-anywhere rides, but a road bike with good 25 mm tires gets me pretty much anywhere I want to go. What's great is that I was able to get the old Stevens hybrid back to the original flat bar state and now it fits my wife perfectly.

I see your collection of C/V bikes has kept growing; any new ones in the making?

You posted the link to the imgur page with the photo on it, but not the direct link to the photo. I think you did everything correctly, other than selecting the direct link.

You used http://imgur.com/Y07zLYs as the photo link, it should be... http://i.imgur.com/Y07zLYs.jpg

You want the link with the "jpg" on the end.

Or, easier yet, underneath the photo there's a "get embed code" option. Click that link and use the BBCode (message boards and forums) link on the left. This will automatically put the "[img]" tags around the photo link. Basically (no quotes) "[img]"photo . jpg (no spaces)"[/img]" (no quotes, but that back slash is very important for the second img text. Hopefully that makes sense.

In the end, you get this:

Here she is all back together after a thorough cleaning, new cables, brake pads, etc. Felt good. (Sorry for phone pics...)

Decided to do red tape this time, since it matches the new saddle. Old Specialized Body Geometry finally wore out, and the Selle Italia felt good in comparison. Much lighter too.

Link to a few in-progress shots and before shot:

But you already have an ergo compact handlebar.

I built a fully carbon 29er not long ago that I'm really enjoying and a Alfa Romeo car sickness has reared it's ugly head again

That bike looks so awesome! Thinking about getting the 2013 model!

Assuming you're commenting on the BMC, seat needs to be dropped 2 inches.
