    Who here has green eyes for bikes?

    DSC00309.JPG
    I been doing some self evaluation and realize the minute i see a nice bike, i think about upgrading mine. mean while i have a great brand new 88 lugged steel bike, just my size. its a racing frame with columbus tubing and much lighter than what i had before. now i find i want to get an official track bike preferably a pista concept or fuji pro just because of its light weight. i get becasue i see how anal it is but yet i still think about saving up. Does anyone get this too?
    btw; the black stuff is electrical tape and the frame is a cinelli

    You'd probably lose some weight by ditching the ninja turtles pad on the top tube.

    Well you already have what looks like a very nice frame (what make is it btw?). Honestly, if you're looking for something to drop $ on I would just spend the $150 on a professional paint job. That bike will really come alive in a non-black colour.

    It would be hot, where the black is to have it white or have it polished and leave the red sections.

    Sometimes, like if I see a set of fenders on a bike that would look great on one of my bikes, I start to look for them. Same goes for other parts

    I have 15 or so bikes, 80% of them are in project state but I'm still always looking for (and buying) bikes. None of my bikes are anything special either. Kind of stupid really, I could have 2 really nice bikes with the money I've spent. My wife thinks I suffer from some kind of disorder because I do it with other stuff too, not just bikes.

    Yeah! A creamsicle scheme on that bike would be the ****. From looking into the OP's post history it seems that the lugs are original colour, and the frame is some species of columbus with cinelli bb shell and campy dropouts. It's *very* much like my Marinoni conversion (down to the size and geometry) except not foolishly shaved. Sexy! Therefore baby jesus is crying especially hard about that paint job. Gyeswho, you've gotta let a pro at that frame.

    Just my opinion, but the bars and stem are also hideous! Is that setup comfortable enough to justify it? A Nitto Technomic and some kind of bullhorn would get you up just about as high and look way less like a giant mantis.

    The cut Brooks is a nice touch. There's a seriously gorgeous bike in there, you just have to let it out.

    I agree, and if you need to be that high for comfort, then a track bike would really not suit you, they are low at the front, and look all wrong with the bars hiked up high....in my opinion anyway.

    As others have said, release the inner beauty in the bike you have, you'll get a real sense of satisfaction from it.

    i put some risers on it, now, with a 90 degree stem. yall aint lying saying its ugly with the stem.
    ? is aluminum or steel better for city streets(NYC)? Most likely this is a phase and ill realize that what i have is longer lasting than an aluminum briddle crumb.

    Support group?

    Mine is full of Arcade games, old Scooters and bikes. The Vintage VWs really make life hard. Oh yeah, the basement is full of more Arcade games and video games. I have like 30 Atari 2600s and probably 50 NES systems. *sigh*
