That cervelo is GOLDEN.
Looks white to me...
At the beginning of this thread I don't think I would have been able to pick a favorite, but after seeing the matte carbon De Rosa...THAT"S IT!
Here's my new 61cm Cervelo S1. Not the caliber of bike that has been previously posted in this thread, but the best I've ever had. I'm really loving it. On to the pictures.
That is a nice paint scheme. too bad they don't use more white/red schemes in their other bikes.
^ that's a pro tour worthy frame... absolutely at the same caliber as other rides on here! :thumb:
I still miss my old SLT. :cry:
just posting updated pictures of my Basso... recently added the Ksyrium Elites, white Ponsa saddle, has 10sp Veloce/Centaur mix with vintage Chorus fr der, headset, skewers, b-bkt, Cinelli bar and stem and a Thomson post...
Just finished this build. Build info and specs can be found here.
2008 Bianchi 928 HoC SL
All bikes are hot.. Photo number two( Shadow Gray's.) .. Sort of looks like the Iron Horse is aluminum.?
Super hot: Pinarello Prince, DeRosa, Moots.
Hot: Just about everything else. Especially vintage steel. I actually had a Cilo like the red one.
Not hot: The chopper and decal bikes.
Here's a couple of my restorations:
Photography and bicycles are to hobbies that merge nicely. After the bike is complete, I'll have some fun with my camera.
Bought the Ksyrium SL's for $400....Wanted something light and durable....
Considered Campy, but I built this bike myself. (complete newb)...The used 7800 pieces cost me around $700.
Seven Ti= $1000
Dura Ace 7800=$700
Saddle/Seat post/Stem/Handlebar $450 all added by a pro during a very long fitting...In other words, those parts were all measured to fit me. (I liked the straight Thomson masterpiece seat post better too, but the pro put me on the slanted one)
Total cost= A bit over 2K..
Value of my experience building bike= Priceless.
not the best pics. found this nos frame on ebay. just what i needed to build the backup bike i'd been planning.
I hate the way it fits my bike stand for maintenance...
I'll go back to my fitter and ask for a straight bar.. (unless there is something we are missing here------Best fitter in the DC area-----I trust these people.
