    Ten years obsessing, searching, and some unwise financial moves finally got me these two bikes in my size. I got the GT on a lark for a good price when I started working at a shop 9 years ago and finally "restored" it having assembled a nice drivetrain. The Cannondale was a long, painful search. I missed the mark by a year or two before prices went insane ~2009, then it was impossible to find a 66 at any cost. Almost ordered a Colossi or Pelizzoli but this was a purely emotional decision. I wanted the Cannondale.

    Here they are built, waiting for bartape and plugs. Bad cellphone pics, I know. The GT is going into a local bike art show so I should have some great photos to share once I hook up with the curator/photographer.

    Can't believe I have never posted my Raleigh Marathon SS yet. Must be riding it too much. Finally it was time to change out the levers,tape and handlebars. Up on the stand as pic'd but back out for a ride afterward.

    Got this as a bare frame heading for the curb, pulled things out of the bins and took off. Great ride, 502 is a good tubing choice for a SS. It's light but not flexy. Cog in rear a16t with 46 chainring in the front. Good for roads level and slightly hilly.

    Pista Concept Street Version

    Completed today with the arrival of a Tektro R530 front brake caliper. Got a chance to test ride before being chased home by a torrential downpour. The bike is so much more enjoyable to ride on the street with these changes, and I can now see taking some long rides on it. It's also nice not having to worry about the risks of riding brakeless. The bike gained about a pound with the changes, but is still two pounds lighter than the Dolan Pre Cursa and the handling is a lot more responsive.

    I'm still waiting for my GTB or pulse to get in on that triple triangle sexyness.

    On another note, just for kicks, both bikes are oppositely colored as what they could've been/ were from the factory.

    Hate it or love it, my fgfs. This bike helped me so much through the winter, as you can tell by the extra rusty chain that I need to replace asap. This bike did things that my Steamroller couldn't, and was more fun to ride than my 26" Giant mountain bike.

    It doesn't look too rusty to me. Rust isn't really a reason to replace a chain that hasn't been worn out yet. Just lube it up and maybe if you want, give it a scrub beforehand to get rid of the road salt that's worked its way in.

    Good advice i'll give it a scrub down and lube it tonight.

    Thank you very much. I had to use the caleido bar tape too. I now have that tape on three of my bikes. Think I might replace it on the other two shortly though - time for something different.

    After the first couple weeks of the school year, you almost never see bicycle cops. I don't think that I would get a ticket unless I was riding recklessly or causing accidents (hopefully). I see plenty of brakeless bikes around campus, and there are much sketchier people riding them than me.

    You have to post pictures if you do.
