    Quite a waste having a bike that nice sitting on a trainer. Wait till you get her on the road, your going to love the ride.

    Lots of potential with little effort. And yes, yellow bar tape will...

    Here's a builder that's using what looks to be a very nice lugged steel frame that's perfectly fitted with some beautiful vintage looking...

    Arthur Ave.!

    My daughter is at Fordham, so we have a good excuse to go up there and eat some of the best Italian food in the world!

    Nice Peugot, but I'll expect a nice Italian bike on your...

    If you go to the press section of the website, you'll see that he is indeed a descendant of Alberto Ascari, the Formula 1 great.

    Gorgeous work IMHO....

    So who is more popular in Great Britain, Chris Hoy and Jason Kenny, or road racers like Chris Froome, Bradley Wiggins, and Mark Cavendish?

    I think it would be interesting to know which form of...

    I must have missed that league.

    You bring up a good point though, you have to shut down a whole downtown area of a city, which many municipalities would be against unless there was a guaranteed...

    Anyone watching the World Cup coverage on Universal Sports Network?

    Only an hour long, but it gives a good feel for the events, and I'm glad to have it.:)

    I agree with that.

    Outdoor tracks are usually just asphalt, with low banking and longer lengths like 400 mtrs. All international and Olympic events are held indoors on the wood, on shorter tracks...

    Yeah, I've visited there, but it's mostly for the racers themselves, not for fans like this forum.



    Very cool, thanks for the link!

    Yeah, it's really two different sports. I also find it quite exciting to watch, and it doesn't take much of a time investment on the part of a fan.

    You guys in the UK have had a really good run...

    So I was wondering if there are any track cycling fans here?

    I did a quick search of this sub-forum and couldn't find anything on track cycling. Track cycling is really a different discipline, and...

    Just wanted to post a pic here of the Hell Gate Bridge. I think you can see why I thought the OP's picture might have been the Hell Gate.

    This massive structure was built by the New Haven RR...

    Actually, the Sidney Harbor Bridge is a copy of the Hell Gate, which came first.

    Such was the magnificence of the Hell Gate Bridge...

    Just the main part of the bridge has the towers, but the bridge goes on for miles on both sides. And they definitely could not skate on the Hell Gate body of water. Deadly currents! I was thinking...

    It really looks like the Hell Gate Bridge that connects The Bronx with Queens by railroad.

    Most awesome bridge in the world...

    Yes, the publicity for sure.

    But, while they cannot suppress the positive test results, USADA(?) the drug testers, need not overreact and grandstand when a positive comes up. I think they...

    Don't worry about the results Tom.

    You will always win the "Best Dressed Rider" category! You were looking smooth and dapper at Kissena last weekend!:);)

    I think Leinster is correct.

    MLB and the NFL are more or less private pro leagues and the only way they will get serious about testing is if the fans demand it and then it hits the bottom line....

    Great thread uncle uncle!:thumb:

    I'm a bit weary of the "I got this Colnago Super for $59, including shipping" stories!:rolleyes:

    Anyway, I think I paid to much for my Miyata, $350, plus...

    Wow, how weird.

    I just went out to the local velodrome today, and I got to ride this exact bike, even down to the color! Weird, huh?

    Well, I can report, it was a nice ride. Columbus SL is...

    Thank you!

    Yeah, the seat stays seem to be bolstered or strengthened at the top with another piece of tubing around the seat stay tube, don't they? Definitely factory, and I'm guessing that was to...
