Not! Campy on a Giant? hehe I love the color scheme though.

Mine: http://i38.tinypic.com/14m9ax4.jpg
probably not... :(

Ravenmore's: Hot. Looks like a great functional race bike. Bars are actually lower than the saddle, which is a plus. I personaly don't like Ksyriums, but still. Nice bike.

Here's my Moots, and here's my next bike (on order, will have in approximately a week). I'll sell the wheels and saddle and put on another Arione and I don't know maybe Reynolds Attack or Assault rims.

since it's giant... with campagnolo, hot or not, on or off, is too drastic. i'd have to do a scale, between 5 and 10 out of a possible 10.

you'd not believe the controversy I've gotten over putting Campy on a Giant. :D Brilliant ride though - probably the best I've owned.

ps - dig the Ironhorse. Well balanced setup.

It's definitely a lot, but I figure at $3200 for a really nice frame, full Chorus, and a decent spec on everything else, I'm willing to ride a billboard.

On the other hand, I really like the Iron Horse logos (especially on the fork).

cannondale SI (made by FSA I believe)....some BB30 nonsense

If you go to the Moots forum in RBR, there is one with full Record and Lightweights. It's beyond beautiful.

i've always just used crank bros because its what i know and i like a semi casual adidas style shoe. but i'm willing to try something new. what do you recommend?

Dick Rhee 08-10-08 12:37 AM

Don't change your setup if you're happy on it, but maybe look into Keo Sprints - easy to use, cheap, and their cleats are easier to walk in. I'd suggest Speedplay but it's a ***** to walk around with those metal cleats.

jinws 08-10-08 12:38 AM

here's mine. please be nice, it be a lot nicer and lighter if i didn't have other hobbies to support.

Still a work in progress - stem gets flipped next week then once I'm fully recovered and flexible again gonna lose some spacers. For now just focus on the frame.
