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.

Haha, well we can work on that. Plenty of opportunities to race in Socal. I've got some plans to race cross on a single speed, but that's top secret for now.

Good to see you on the forum. If a noob like me is going to get into it, you have NO excuse.

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!

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.

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..
