My latest 2013 Noah RS
The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard and the shallow end is much too large

Well...posted this in the "hot or not" thread and was told "not" and told to post here. Here's my '12 105 Tarmac in Team Saxo colors. I haven't done a ton to it but here's the pic and the rundown:
ROL Race SL wheels
Conti GP 4000s tires
Ritchey EVO Curve handlebars
Ultegra 11-28 cassette (stock was a 105 I moved to an indoor trainer wheel)
Ultegra chain (the stock was a Tiagra)
New stem (needed a smaller one when I was fit to the bike)
The picture was taken Pre fit so now the handlebars are level and the seat has been moved (only post fit picture I have):
Yes the frame is a 1996 . No Stock components everything else is pretty well upgraded .
Love that Noah!
Ride to a healthy life .. hopefully ... hi all .. first post here!
My Kuota Kharma Evo .. with all the basics ..tiagra/105 ...
Just got into cycling last summer with a Diamondback Podium 1. Have done some upgrades, but have been very impressed with the bike for less than $500 new. Will probably put in another year or two before getting something with at least Shimano 105 and then keep this as the winter/indoor trainer bike.
And I apologize for breaking the rules with the black saddle and white tape. I was on a saddle hunt but will keep it all black now that I found the ism adamo century.
Just bought a Trek Madone 5.2 to replace my Trek Madone 2.1 that was damaged in a bike accident.
Thanks for the input. I saw on a thread somewhere that a person suggested the same thing. I will probably go that route as I think it might be too plain with no decals.
I am using a Specialized Sequoia Elite that I picked up used at a shop. It's in their largest frame size- which suits me- and has had the rear rim replaced, presumably as an necessary upgrade, since this bike is basically for Clydsdales in this frame size <grin>. The PO also put a Ritchie adjustable stem on it, which has been nice as I can play around with the angle.
I like it! Very smooth & comfortable bike with the carbon forks, chainstays, and seat post.
I've put several hundred miles on it in the short time I've had it, with a 62-miler as the current longest ride. Mostly I do ~30 mile rides for fun and conditioning.
No beefs to report, other than that in granny gear on a very steep hill, if I stand up to pump it, and toss the bike from side to side, I can flex the rear triangle enough to touch a brake pad. I am a big guy at 6'-4" 220 lbs so I think it's just how it is. As my form has tightened up I haven't noticed it happening lately.

^ Huge improvement. I'm a fan.
Upgraded from a Trek 5000 to a 2013 Madone 5.9.New Trek Madone.jpg
Very nice Trek. good luck with it.
2013 Trek Madone 5.2. I love this bike! Carbon frame, Ultegra components, 105 cassette set, ultegra crank. I got the black/platinum color. They didn't have the white/green frame in my frame size.

My cycling related purchase for the day! It's old, so am I, so that works. I went for a ride, my rear tire failed 35 miles from home, (Tire, not tube) I stopped by the bike shop I knew in that town to get a new one, and traded for this new (to me) bike instead! A good day, 80+ miles and a new ride! I hate the yellow bar tape, but other than that I love it already.
Edit: Changed time to town.
Dude... no. So much clashing, my eyes are bleeding.
