    Which aero bar brackets are you using? I'm looking for a bracket that will let me mount under the bar, but without flip-ups for the pads, which I found to rattle terribly.

    they are Profile Airstryke S. yes they came with the spring-loaded flip up and i found it was odd to use, so i took the springs out and epoxy them permanent onto the "down" position. the brackets are the one came with the bar, i had to play around and loop around the cable wires a little to get them into place.

    Here are my rigs. My SL-1 is undergoing a Di2 transplant as we speak and should be ready in a couple hours. Defintely excited about the changes for this years race season. The other bikes not pictured are my Merlin Titanium and girlfriends Fuji Sportif, also undergoing a full ultegra transplant from my SL-1.

    I wouldnt say I am a Fuji fanboy as Ive had numerous other bikes from different manufactures and love them all, but having worked a company that deals with ASI, Its hard to not pass up a great product and unbeatable pro deal prices.







    Heres my real money pit and hobby

    Daily Driven, Caged, track prepped.

    Fully tuned Stage 3 set up.

    Oh the usual...some carbon fiber, some deep wheels, some electronic shifting, and not enough money.

    I agree with you about Celeste and Bianchi going hand in hand. The red bits don't bother me as much, however.

    I love Bianchis in Celeste. In Europe (and specially in Italia) riders go for style in their bikes (as well as performance) so colors like Celeste are extremely popular. I guess they don't have the hang ups that some riders here have.

    A historical note. Mussolini tried to change the color of the winner's jersey in the Giro d'Italia because he thought that the rosa maglia was too girlish for the winner of such a difficult race. To this day winning the rosa maglia is considered one of cycling's most difficult achievements.

    And what about Il Duce? Once defeat became imminent, he tried to escape but was eventually captured. He was then executed and hung upside down, like a big, fat piece of prosciutto.

    So much for his stupid machismo.

    Thank you, I bought the Bottecchia new back in 1989. The only changed I have made to it is to upgrade to Campy Athena 11speed. The frame still hums when I ride it.

    Got my first road bike almost a year ago on Memorial Day weekend. A Cannondale Women's Synapse Carbon 5 105
    Cannondale_Synapse5105CarbonLadies.jpg It's a beautiful first ride

    I also recently got a Scott Contessa Speedster 35 which I am going to be riding across the US this summer, from Baltimore to Portland. Heavier with an aluminum frame and carbon fork, and lower-end components. Just hoping it'll be more durable for the 4,400 mile ride.

    Too lazy to take pics. I am in bed and the bikes are downstairs in the living room and garage.

    And my first road bike. All set up for a bike/run brick when I was training earlier this year with all the snow.

    They replaced it with a new celest frame. : )
    Mussolini was probably insecure about his manlihood.
    I'm not slow, I'm just enjoying the race longer.

    I'm jealous of our assortment! It looks like both of your bikes match roughly in color as well, must make for easier outfit choicing. : )
