Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Bought one of these yesterday to give it a try. We'll see how good it works this afternoon.

1987 (or so) Giant Iguana. $17.50. Needs a new front tire and new pedals, so I'll have to throw another $25 or so at it.

I got a killer deal on a new Easton EC90 SLX fork. It was assembled on a bike for a photoshoot then disassembled and put back in the box. 2 bills later it was mine and now resides on my bike! Now if only the weather will cooperate I can put more than 30 miles on them!

Kona Jake The Snake (frame and fork only)



Ultegra 6600 Compact crankset and cassette




Ultegra 6700 brifters and derailleurs







Thomson X2 stem, silver



Avid Shorty 6s, front and rear, silver



Raceface Cadence compact bars



Mavic Aksiums, silver



So I guess "my bike" right now consists of nothing more than a silver Thomson Elite seatpost and my Fizik Arione saddle.

I also got a 6700 bottom bracket and some antique brown fizik bar tape for this build, and a freewheel cog and rear brake for my Angus, which is going into single-speed mode and being handed down to my girlfriend.

This is going to be my do-it-all-all-the-time bike. With a 20km (one-way) commute to work, the fixed gear thing got old quick.

I wanted something I could ride all the time. No excuses. Can't wait to put this together.
