    Personally, no. I get a bike 'just right' then move on to the next project. Occasionally I'll make a slight change and put a prettier part on a 'keeper' so that I can trickle down the lesser bits to...

    I found a pair of old wool trousers for $3 at a thrift store and modified them into 'knicks' (solves the problems several of the other posters describe) and they're fantastic for temps in the 10-35...

    I don't think the saddle linked in the first post is from Gyes (source of both the Velo Orange and Spa Cycles saddles) because I don't see an 8-digit stamp on the underside, the rivets look a little...

    Same experience here, it's peculiar but doesn't bother me - I figure that if a driver can't understand a simple signal (for the record, I point where I'm going) then really it's better that they stay...

    Here's a really pretty 56cm Trek 610, if I didn't already have two very similar road bikes in my stable I'd grab it myself.
