same old bike, new pic.
same old bike, new pic.
I finally found the pics of my GT back in the 90's!!!
The cranks, rims, seatpost, and headset races were all custom anodized together.
Swap between platforms for commuting and shimano clipless for long rides. If you do any night riding, definately pick up one of those cat eyes. Its like a freaking mag-light on your handlebars.

I need to snap some new pics, but there she is.
Race bike with training wheels.....i need to get used to it.
Training bike with race wheels.....might end up being the race bike...still undecided.
here it is again. i hope the mods delete this one too.
I want your bike, you self muitilating defecating punk rocker.
ill cut you a deal on the frame and fork in six months when i get my yamaguchi.
I'd prefer to race mountain as well but that probably won't happen either. Ahem!
I know, I know! I do miss racing. Though my favorites were racing the marathons in the Alps or other alpine events in Germany. Nothing worse than racing marathon without a computer. I never had any idea how hard I could ride because I never knew how much father I had to go! :lol:
A general observation on some of the bikes pictured here, how many of you guys with the compact frames and bars/stems slammed actually ride in the drops? That is some seriously low action there. :lol:
Newest addition -
Newest ride.. Thanks again to Craigslist.
Corsa Extra Merckx came with a mix of new and old. Record 10 shifters and DER... Mavic SSC Brakes & HS. Campy Eurus Wheels. Super Record Seatpost and C-Record Cranks.. Campione Del Mondo Bars and Cinelli 1-R Stem. A weird mix of old and new but it all works together very well..
I had sold one of my Motorola Merckx's to a museum, so was looking on Craigslist and found this beauty. It has no decals, but I tracked the serial # down to a 1987/88 Corsa Extra SLX Frame.. It had been painted within the last couple of years and the paint looks very good..
Staying on the strange, here's my 1960 Rollfast frankenstein cruiser:
And my more 'normal' '97 Santa Cruz Chameleon SS/fixxie:
Got this yesterday. My first road bike since I was... hmmmmm 10 or 11? Oh and it wasn't found in the trash, or at a garage sale. :thumb:
and the MTB I got last Feb.
My Dahon Curve D3 with Klickfix wiremesh basket, Igloo Playmate cooler, and Brooks Standard B17 seat:
