    It's a 49cm. I'm 5'4" tall. I really liked the color on this one, black and white didn't inspire me much. It's an Allez Elite, Tiagra group with the exception of the brakes and crank.

    Very nice start, I like Tiagra. Excellent starting group. Curious, what pedals are you running?

    Shimano 105s. They might be hard to identify from the pictures since I've done a few slow motion falls and have scratched them a bit.

    I have the same 105's as well, and yes the scratch easy, if you are learning to use bike pedals. ( I know from experience, lol )

    So last year I picked up a Motobecane Vent Noir frame/fork set from Bike Island to upgrade my old Trek 1000. Really nice Kinesis set. I rode it for a while before I came across a pseudo-family member selling a Trek 5200 US Postal bike for $200 with Mavic Ksyrium Elites, full Ultegra/DA, and Bontrager Blade CF bars; I snapped that up to use the parts on my Vent Noir. When I saw it, though, I decided to ride it because it was really cool. A couple of weeks back, the forks cracked. Last week, cracks started showing up where the chain-stays meet the BB shell, and I could hear it creaking. So, I moved all the parts onto my Vent Noir. Here it is now, I think it looks really sweet:



    It needs new brake cables (the ones I moved over are too short) and to be put in front of your garage door shifted to the big chainring and small cog for a better picture, this was taken minutes after tightening everything down except the brake cables.

    Nice bike, but all I can really think about is how odd of a spot that is to put a bike.

    I was thinking the same thing. Usually I'm not a stickler for the white garage door, but in this case, we need a white garage door so we can actually see the bike...

    What do you think of the ride? I am thinking about getting a Synapse carbon 5 or 6.

    Indeed.

    I still can't get over the fact that there is a bike is on top of a TV (well, part of it anyway).

    Just had my 2004 Bianchi Axis frame stripped and re-painted by a local frame painter. I was never crazy about the checkered flag design, and it also had a couple of corrosion spots I wanted to repair. I will be building the bike back up in the next few weeks. Here's a few pics.

    Before:

The Tioga was going on my folder/commuter which had a Selle Italia C2 gel that I din't like. When I 1st took it out of the box, it seemed very stiff. No give at all when I press on it. But after a few rides and some adjustments, I like it. I'm around 200 lbs. and I think the saddle weighed 145 grams on my scale. Make sure you don't get a fake one. Better to pay a bit more for the real thing:
