    I ordered the bike from Strada Cycles in Vancouver, BC. It is always a bit scary ordering something in a custom color but the result came out amazing....
    Cheers

    Looks like it's wearing naughty lingerie. I didn't know Adam & Eve had a cycling department.

    That is one gorgeous bike. I'm in the middle of having a Cento1 SR built up myself, but in a standard red/black frame. The custom is hot.

    Redone thanks to suggestions in the Hot R Not thread. I've since gotten ride of the spacer above the stem and I may replace the seat and put it on the cross bike frame I just bought to use my 105 parts since putting ultegra on this puppy.

    Thought this was a nice picture from my ride today....

    In the Hot R Not thread many of you helped improve the look of my road bike with your suggestions, if you recall I upgraded from 5600 to 6800 and I just got a CX frame to put all the old parts on. Even will be reusing that red cage that I had on the other bike.

    Although the 5600 is a compact, the trails I'll be riding this on are relatively flat crushed limestone converted rail road trails so should be just fine. While this is the road forum, I just thought posting a pic of the cx frame I got for a steal I think. Can't wait until it's built up so I can post a pic in the cx forum.

    Again, thanks all for help getting my road bike set up right. I love riding it.

    Cheers

    First post, let's see if my phone uploaded the pic correctly.
    Just bought my first road bike from a buddy that's moving out of country, hoping to put enough miles on it this year to earn a nicer bike next year. 2005 Trek 1000, Sora in back, 105 in front, ultegra brakes, in decent shape tho in bad need of TLC. Going to tear it down, degrease and lube, debadge, but my seat on it, re-wrap the handle bars, might not replace the cables since everything works.
    $150 plus whatever I put into it... did I do ok?
    (oh, and it FITS!)

    $150 for a first bike that fits? You did more than ok. (That was actually my first bike too)

    No reason. The frame isn't worth keeping it on, I like the idea of clean silver... might make a thief look at something else?
    I've never been big into branding.

    I feel the same way. I never buy any clothing that has large brand logos. The only thing I have that is clearly branded are my New Balance running shoes and that's tough to rectify since for me, they make the best minimal natural running form shoes.

    If I'm going to be a moving billboard, I should be paid. My #1 reason for selling my Masi Partenza frame? Decals. I was so annoyed that I was a moving billboard for a company I don't even like. You can see MASI in huge lettering all tubes and fork, it's moronic. Masi owes me money for advertising their crappy bike all over Boston and Northshore.

    Another irritating thing about SRAM is how large their branding is on the shifters. I think SRAM owes a few thousand $$$ to every SRAM rider out there. My 105 are lovely in that only those who can recognize bike parts know it's a Shimano 105 or that it's Shimano.

    From a distance of more than 5 ft, you can't see any branding at all on my bike other than the wheels say RS11, which to an average person would mean absolutely nothing. I expletive expletive expletive expletive love that! I love that normal person wouldn't be able to judge how much my bike costs or how much I spent. And for the average person probably would not be at the top of their list to steal. No branding? I would be ecstatic if 99/100 person who didn't recognize or know the components of my bike and what frame I have thought it was garbage bike not worth stealing.

    And lucky for me, even among avid cyclists, they probably think my bike is garbage because it doesn't have branding from Parlee/Guru or Wilier/Cervelo. Average person thinks it sucks and those who know bikes think it sucks? Sweet, I hope it never gets stolen.

    Just saying, if I was a bike thief? I would do anything possible to steal as many Parlee bikes as I could. I'd spend $5K on some tool that can eat through bike locks super fast and steal every branded boutique bike as I could. Walk around with a helmet, carry my tool in one of the super lame bags hippies or metrosexuals use and bike shoes with a coffee mug in the other hand.

    For the last 6 weeks I've been unable to ride due to being hit by a pickup truck. That destroyed my bike and nearly destroyed me. Thursday my doctors gave me the green light to resume cycling, but it's tough without a bike.

    Today a buddy of mine sent me a photo of a bike he built for me out of spare parts.



    It's good to have friends that buy old bikes, just because they were a great deal.

    You're crazy and who the hell leaves an expensive road bike of any brand in a bike rack? I don't even own a lock for my bikes. I have no reason to.

    I see this bike getting some gears again in the future.

    The brakes and crankset appear to be Chorus, San Marco saddle, and the tubing is Columbus. I'm guessing it's from about 1991, and those rims also look like Campagnolo. I'll know better after we have lunch today.

    I wonder if Clark will feel like getting rid of some of his used Campagnolo. He's got a grip of it just sitting in random spots in his garage. You really wouldn't believe how much NOS stuff he has. It's really insane.

    It's a little insane what he has stashed away. Cobolto brakes, C-Record cranks, Sheriff Star hubs, Pista pedals... All NOS. It just goes on and on.
