This is the second one
A better picture of the look
Built her up from some spare parts and an $80 Nashbar frame.
My '86 Schwinn Pelotwins. One's a 24-inch with a triple chainring and Dura Ace 7850-C24 wheels, the other is a 25-inch with dual chainring and the wheels I built myself for the bike. (The wheels with white rims.)
My bike is nothing special. Gotta include some scenery to make up for that.
Looks like So.Cal? Let's make a guess, Huntington Bch? I haven't been to HB in years.......
Here's my '05 Trek 1000:
This was the first bike I bought when I got back into road cycling in '05. In '08 or so I got myself a new bike and sold this. The guy who bought it gave it to someone else when he bought a new bike, who gave it back to me when they bought a new bike. How could I not rebuild it and ride it?
try harder,, just say'n
Wanted to update for the local thread. My Tarmac SL2 has been gifted to my nephew, minus the Quarq, which I recently sold.
S-Works SL3, Saxo Bank team edition. S-Works standard crankset with spesh branded Quarq powermeter
3T Ergonova handlebars, 3T Arx stem
3T Dorico seat post
Fizik Antares braided saddle
Mavic Ksyrium SL wheels, Conti GP4000s
I was very close to going with "new Red" for this build, thinking that I'd have to add the cost of a new, 11-speed wheelset. Thankfully, My old Ksyriums (2008?) work just fine with the spacer removed.
For anyone setting up a DA 9000 front derailleur, take a minute to RTFM a couple of times re: the convertor guide usage, placement, etc. That thing had me scratching my head for a few minutes because I didn't see it in the packaging (it's clear plastic). Also, it's really easy to drop (and almost lose) the tiny metal "seat tube reinforcement plate", especially if you have big hands, like me. Luckily, it's ferrous and it was caught by my Quarq magnet.
S-Works crankset & Quarq powermeter
I'm still fine-tuning my position, and only have three rides on it, but I'll try to post a semi-detailed review after a few more miles. I will say that the S-Works chainrings handle the Shimano 11-speed chain & FD just fine- in case anyone was worrying about 10spd chainring compatibility with 11spd Shimano...

Just realized that I never posted this in here. How could I forget!
2010 Litespeed Icon, Rival
1987 Nishiki Olympic 12, commuterized
29er rockhopper SL rigid singlespeeder w/ some carbon bits
Focus Izalco w/ Campy Chorus / HED Belgium C2 in front of our company RV at Bolsa Chica State Beach and from the top of Palomar during Stage 1 of ToCA (freak non-drive-side photo).
I've had this BH G6 since the beginning of the year but only now stopped to take photos. (I'd rather ride it than photograph it - or water my grass, for that matter. )
I had the G5 before this (both the 2012 "matte" and the 2010 "glossy" version) and this is definitely the best yet.
(And yes, I'm selling the G5 frameset).
