    Yup... got used in HS. It was biopace, 300ex, DT shift, quil stem ... little brother barrowed it, lost the "front end". I got it back, it was on life support, for a while. Now, MEGA EXO, 6600, carbon clincher. ( Smokin deal on wheelset, hanging in LBS, since its the *old* "knife edge" design vs. new "fatty" ones. )

    Newest upgrade: Replace overly "chunky" cane creek S2 headset, in above mentioned pic... and pulled the head badge of my other bianchi, to stick on this one.



    built a wheelset, 16H Mavic Cosmics, laced to 32H Shim hubs ... O.O ... : o)

    Here is my new bike.




    Built with lots of help from mechanics forum. I had to ask many questions, something very simple, like what headset does it take or in what order I put together all the parts.

    Not finished yet, awaiting Retul, then I will trim the cables, housings and add bar tape. But it is ride-able. It was fun to build and even more fun to ride. I was able to ride it once only, today we have snow in Central Ohio.

    Props to you for building it. Sure is fun isn't fun?

    Just picked up a Schwinn Continental, 10sp, brownish color model.....I'm not sure what year it is. It's my first roadie transferring from Mountain bike. I just think roadie are more efficiency and much quicker than mt to commute.

    Just recently got into cycling and purchased this '14 Trek Domane 2.0. I've ridden around 200 miles on it, and it's treating me very well thus far. Put some shimano A530 spd pedals on it cause I ride to school a lot, and its nice not having to clip in every time I need to ride.Trek Domane 2.0.jpg

    2013 Trek Madone 2.1. Aluminum frame
    Feels pretty much the same to me as carbon bikes, I've had carbon bikes before and for this average rider getting some sun and some miles here and there this is just fine. I probably will never buy carbon again.

    I love my 2.1, super smooth yet responsive, best upgrade was new tires and Bontrager RL wheels, that made a difference along with a saddle more suited for me.

    Here's a picture of the Bianchi Infinito, it's being worked on at the moment... frame and rear derailleur were damaged. Should be replaced and up-and-running soon.
    My bike stand was made out of spare parts I had lying around the house from a shelf.

    I would get rid of the reflectors and get some lights instead. Though I think you posted you commute a bit, so probably is on your list to do already.

    I usually use a hybrid bike for commuting. I put the rear reflectors on the front to balance out the wheel as a quick temp fix. I was afraid the single reflector would make the wheel wobble a bit at high speeds.

    Itd be one thing if they were 20$ craigslist bikes but all those are actually really nice!

    Nice collection! How is that Vigorelli? I love the look of those 2012's and thought it would be a great all-purpose bike.

    Hey dmc,

    My Super Six, Litespeed and Bianchi are all new for this riding season. With the weather still crummy most of the time I've only gotten one ride in on each of them. Only done a short 30 miler on the Vigorelli, the ride is real smooth. Am expecting it and the Litespeed to be excellent on long 70-100 miles rides, maybe less fatiguing than carbon. I chose the 2012 over the 2013 because of the black Bianchi panels.

    And yes, you can never have enough bikes. n + 1 is my favorite algebraic formula.

    My 2013 GT. First road bike i've owned since my Vitus 979 back in the late 80's. Entry level, but more fun on the road than than my MTB

    I like it. It's a nice bike. Looks like a relaxed comfy ride to me. Entry level bikes are the best

    So my Bianchi got fixed ... it now has a different color frame. I think it looks a bit odd... but I'm not complaining with the Celeste color.

    Infantile girly colors? I'd be embarrassed to ride a bike that color. They didn't have the red anymore?

    I'd pay another $200 somewhere to have it repainted matte black or do it myself.

    Celeste is the only correct colour for a Bianchi.

    This is, perhaps, why I do not own a Bianchi...I hate Celeste
    ....yes I do know that they come in other colours
