2012 GIANT TCR1[105 + upgrades + spares + friction trainer] FOR SALE. $999. Toronto area, will deliver within reason. motivated sale.
Hello. New guy here. Lots of great bikes here. Here is my (new to me) 2011 Cannondale Hi-Mod SuperX 'cross bike (52 cm). Got a great deal on it so I had to get it.
BallisTech Hi-Mod full carbon frame and fork, Sram Rival shifters, front and rear derailleurs, FSA SL-K Light carbon BB30 crankset (46/36), switched stock bars with Deda Newton, Mavic Ksyrium Equipe hubs and wheels, Continental CX RACE tires. I want to upgrade the saddle, get some clipless pedals, and purchase a decent computer (any suggestions?)
It's been ages since I've owned a bike. I did a lot of mountain biking and bmx biking when I was much younger and I'm discovering that I still enjoy beating the hell out of my bikes. I'm having a blast and feel like a kid again!
Sorry, but I can't seem to add a larger picture. Here is a link to the larger version of it: http://flic.kr/p/bJ5gnX

Fort 52cm steel frame
Ultegra shifters w/ Tektro interrupted levers
Ultegra FD, FSA Carbon crank, 46/36
older XTR RD (M952), 11-26(?) SRAM something or another cassette
Ritchey stem, carbon seatpost
Avid Shorty 6 brakes
DT hubs, handbuilt Velocity Deep V wheels
Wound-Up carbon fork
I bought one from Nashbar that didn't fit right, so I sent it back. Owner of a local (tiny) shop had this in the back, was willing to part w/ it for 800, after tax. Fits me perfectly, rides like a charm. It was an easy buy...hope to get out on it after work tomorrow.
I plan on changing out the rings and cassette fairly soon to 34/50 and 11-32 probably, and put on some wider handlebars as these are a bit narrow for my tastes. Next winter may come some used Campy shifters and a Travel Agent as I really prefer those to the Shimano ones. Or possibly RetroShifts. We'll see how I take to the Ultegras over time.

This is our road frame that seems to be doubling as our XC frame. Had not thought of doing so until we bought the bike and discovered our clearances were big enough to play with. And as it turns out, the wife much prefers (at this point) our XC adventures over our regular road runs.
This bike opens up a whole mess of new routes for me.
1991 Trek 8700 - SS conversion - 'round towner
2009 Gary Fisher "Kaitai" - heavy commuter
2009 Raleigh Team - fast & light
2012 Raleigh Twin Six - Belt drive, IGH, CX
1993 Scott Santa Fe - dedicated basement trainer
New (old and slightly cranky) brifter, new wheels I built with ultegra hubs and sun me14a rims.
Mine, pictured set up for the 3 Peaks hence the upright stem.
New guy here!
My new Redline Carbon Conquest team set up for the road. Will switch out the chainrings for 'cross when the season comes along, but racing the road with it for now.
I'll admit I was a bit worried about getting a carbon cross bike, but this thing has held up well. Outside of road rides, I've been throwing my knobbies on it and taking it my local single track. It handles really well on dirt and the road. I'm excited to see how it does on a true 'cross course.

Updated the F-75X. Took off the interrupter levers and added Shorty Ultimates.
My son's Gary Fisher Presidio Cyclocross Bike.
Last spring he rode home from Niagara Falls to Montauk in 6 days averaging 125 per day. He decided the Gary Fisher was the one to take over his Road or Tri bike.
He also races it at times.

Made some tweaks to my cross bike. It's in road mode right now, but will get cross tires put on shortly as I start training for D2R2 on dirt roads.

Purchased used, so I have not made any alterations to it...yet.
Just realized I have not shared either of my CX bikes. I race occasionally but have really just started my 30 mile RT commute on both of them regularly again. Looking to take one of them (have not decided which) on a fabulous 80 mile route (Emmett/HorseShoe Bend) this weekend.
Here is my 2010 Jake The Snake out for its 100 mile shake down ride last spring.
Here is my Major Jake in full winter commute mode. I have since updated it with Ultegra 6600 10 spd, canti brakes (avid shortys), and a pair of EA 90 SL wheels. I get a crazy shudder sometimes on this front brake which a fork mounted hanger helped out with on the JTS but this fork has no crown hole and I am not sure I want to drill it. Any suggestions would be welcome.
Oh, and just for fun, here is a little lesson I learned the hard way about rear der, maintenance.

hmm I have a question: why is the seat so high lol
Here's mine. Just got it earlier this month, so only about 100 miles on it so far. Absolutely love it. Only changes so far are Avid Shorty Ultimate brakes and Lizard Skins bar tape. Wasnt a big fan of the white saddle, so put one of my old ones on.
Next up is rims. Any suggestions? I'm a heavy rider (230+ lbs) and not to sure how the stock Rovals will hold up once I start hitting the trails.
I have officially kicked diabetes ass!!! No more meds, no more needles and only a finger prick every other day.
