    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.

    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.

    Just wondering if you bought the diamondback locally or online order? I am also in central nj and wouldn't mind checking one out live at a local shop vs. trying to figure out proper fit online

    So, put a couple hundred mile on this thing and let us know what it's like? I have to admit that I love the surly web site, if I made a line of bikes and had to explain them via a website, the closer it came to being what the surly website says their bikes are, the happier it would make me. Now I've only ever seen a Surly Pugsley in person, and it looked like a huge amount of fun, but it's a very specialized sort of thing. The cross check seems like it would be a joy to ride, but I've not seen or ridden one in person.
