I don't know exactly what I built here, but it wheelies pretty well. :)

Needs foot retention, but looks good. What's the frame?

Thanks.

It's not fixed, it's got a CB. ;)

It was a matte gray (yuck) garage sale special. I think it's a State. :rolleyes:

I think I'd like it better with a gray saddle/pedal combo. It would make the wheels and grips POP even more. Which I really dig BTW. The contrast of the pink and the FAT tires is cool too.

I really like that, looks like it'd be fun. One more thing on here I need to copy someday.

Finally got to try out this disc wheel on one of the local road time trial. Along with a smaller gearing, 46/17 compared to previous 46/15, I was able to shave just over 2min on my previous time. Not fast by any means but getting there.

My Bianchi Pista. Waiting to put Celeste var take on when I decide on a set of road bars. Probably Nitto Noodles.

If anything, I'd probably have gone black on the pedals and saddle, but this was a total parts bin/closeout parts special build on a vintage bike I picked up free... Happened to have the pedals and saddle; pink wheels were on closeout (DEAL!) and I splurged on the grips and new tires.

Desperately needs a Wald basket...

Oh man, you are really on to something there. Black would pull in the headset, bar end plugs, and the bell. Now that I have seen it in my mind, you have to do it. :) It would be awesome.

It's so easy spending other people's money.

Better.

Best. Speaking of dreams, it rides like a very pleasant one.

It no longer has mudguards, and those bottle cages have been retired.

Not even close! But with [insert preferred search engine], it's a small world after all.

^^^ Both bikes pictured above are really nice, but good photography (and as a lousy photographer, I am envious of their skilz) makes such a difference...

GhostSS 06-11-14 04:47 PM

I'm a lousy photographer AND I'm too shy to take photos of my bikes in public, but too embarassed to take photos of my bikes in my man cave.

I used to feel that way early on, but I forced myself to overcome it. Such feelings are definitely a hindrance to getting good photos. Besides, I consider bikes to be worthy subjects.
