Seriously over-pronated ankles and open float.
Framset and SRAM Red parts, about @2000.00. I had the wheels, tires, saddle, bar, pedals and i'm borrowing the SRM. So really it hasn't cost me very much at all. I sold my previous year 6.9SSL for $4000.00 and put this together. Not sure where all that extra cash went, though
Please don't call them "brifters", that just sounds stupid. Really.
My new road/Tri bike:
i remember test riding that gt a couple years back when i was buying my first road bike. really impressive welding and i found it rode and fit much better than the roubaix. nice bike, but first one i have seen in the wild (so to speak). nicely set up and photographed but not quite hot though.
Speedvagen... Yes, please.
Yes that is it.
Here goes nothing. Hope to have my new 3T 6 degree stem in today. My riding posture has improved since the fitting.
That looks like a 17 degree stem, not a 6. Oh, and not.
Ah, my hasty reading let me down.

So... I have a build I'm being driven mad over. It's a late 2000's Ridley Cheetah Team TT Bike. Has the serial number 0000006, and was painted for the Adler team from NYC. I had some NOS Record 8/9 bits in the garage + NOS Campy wheels and decided they would look good on the bike, but have had some reservation after installing the parts because they're not period specific. BTW, the bars are cinelli angel (have the unused pinup) but need the black 8 spd. bar end shifters if I decide to continue.
Anyhow, please don't be mean about the saddle, or lack of a headset - also the back tire has no air. I only put the stuff on for the pic.
You guys in this thread are the most critical, but most spot on about a bikes' looks.
Looking for insight, and what you would outfit this bike with...
2006 Ridley TT Team Issue; 2013 Felt DA4; 1981 Bianchi Campione; 1969 Bianchi Record; 1974 Motobecane Grand Jubile; 1972 Gitane Super Corsa; 1977 Pinarello Special: 1997 Rockhopper; Bianchi Cortina; 2009 Jamis Sputnik
While we're on the subject of chainrings...
For the new cannondale, I think I'll stick with the Hollowgram SI cranks, but am thinking I'll change the chainrings...should I go with the c'dale spider rings or the praxis rings?
