    Is the frame 1996? The components look to be around 2006 or newer

    You must have noticed the parts you disliked in the shop...So why didn't you ask them to swap some parts?
    Personally I don't see anything wrong with it.

    Custom Peter Mooney steel. Mix of NOS Campy Chorus and Record, Campy Nucleon wheels. Saddle has since been changed to a Toupe, and computer to a Cateye double wireless.

    My winter build, and now primary steed. Full Shimano 600 drivetrain. I'd still like to update the wheelset (it currently has the original Mavic MA40's laced to Shimano 600 hubs), but they're perfectly functional for the time being. Perhaps the strangest part of the build was dealing with the 1.250" head tube (had to use a Problem Solvers reducer to shim to 1.125"), but it was still a lot of fun watching it come together.

    Nice C'Dale. I'm confused - those cantilevered dropouts indicate an older frame, 3.0? 2.8? Shouldn't it have a 1" threaded fork and steerer? 1.25" was MTB realm, no?

    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):

    You're right, the frame is a 2.8, and 1.25" was an MTB setting that was pushed for a while. Oddly, the mid-90's R900 models (and only the R900, as far as I know) came with a 1.25" threaded fork/steerer instead of 1" like the rest. This particular one came with the Sub1 fork and a beefy quill stem. I needed to change the bars/stem to get a better fit, but since 1.25" quills are practically non-existant these days, I changed the front end over to the modern 1.125" standard.

    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.

    good call on the wheels. if you peel the red bits of logo off those rims, i think the black/white theme will look much sharper.

    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.

    Removed the red part of the decals and am pleased. Thanks again for the suggestion.
