    Does your neighbor happen to be Yao Ming? Geez you must be tall...

    My neighbor is tall, probably 6' 4". I'm only six feet, but I have long legs (and very skinny) and a short torso, so this bike seems to fit me. I would say after making the adjustments that the seat is much lower than it would be for my neighbor, but by lowering the seat on this bike it leaves the handle bar position in a relatively higher position than I would find on a shorter bike such as my Wellington 3.0 (59c). In the picture I posted you can see the seat in the position that I found it, it is two inches lower now. I would never dreamed that I would like the fit I have with this bike, but it works just fine.

    Little late to respond, but I use these as well, no problems have been great. I used the weld product as well. it wasn't hard to take off the magnet but it was more difficult to deal with the residue. Some people use tubular glue which apparently works well to hold the magnet. it really is tiny

    I'll admit, I'm a bit of a "gear junky" so I've changed quite a few things on the bike. The latest is the Romin EVO pro saddle, CG R seat post and some 6800 brakes. I'll have some 6800 pedals coming here soon…that should wrap me up for this coming spring/summer season.

    Nice find…is that a 2009 Quick Step Tarmac? How much did it set you back? A buddy of mine has a 2009 Roubaix comp in the same color sitting rotting…I keep trying to buy it off of him but he won't sell it.

    Just picked up what I think is a 90's era Cadex from the LBS. It is perhaps a bit long in the tooth by some standards.
    It is a carbon fiber frame. It rides nice and seems decent, so far. cadex-2.jpgcadex-1.jpg

    '09 Novara Strada

    Bought this, my first real road bike, last September. I've put about 450 miles on it to date. I've recently added these Syncros RP1.5 wheels. They're light (1,535 grams), and very stiff. I'm looking to upgrade the crankset and bottom bracket next.

    Any feedback on the durability of the saddle? I was thinking about trying it but it just seems so flimsy. Anyway, nice bike.

    The 'Venge' decal on this frame's downtube is supposed to be silver/gray. and in small lettering underneath venge in supposed to say 'created in morgan hill california'

    Here's my entry into road cycling. Took possession of this raleigh r600 over the weekend, 1995 model. Very clean, apparently rarely used, and only cost $100. Just needs new tires, and I was surprised that I really didn't need to do anything to adjust the fit. Looking forward to better weather to take this out

    My daily driver, my GMC Denali. 22.5" frame bought it for $40. After adjusting the derailleurs & re-installing the front tube (it had a bubble in the front tire from the tube being pinched) i was all set. Now after 2 months & 600 miles the bottom bracket is starting to wear out. Looking to upgrade to a better lighter bike (this one is 29 lbs) maybe by summer...IMG_20131025_220307.jpgIMG_20131028_135437.jpg
