my first bike, even if it is cheap <3

rode it just up and down the hill today and was really surprised at how easy it was to get up, and how FAST it was going down. i was a little bit scared, to say the least

off of ebay, from the person who i assume represents bikesdirect on there, yes.

i dont really mind what you guys have to say about it being crap, but to me, its lighter, faster, and better than anything i have previously ridden.

edit: oh yeah, i also got some northwave aerator shoes off of bonktown. of course before this i had bid on some spd pedals that use the 2-hole cleats, and the shoes i got only have the 3 holes.... has anyone used that shimano adapter plate? probably just be better to get some of the entry level spd-sl pedals instead eh?

Cervelos don't seem to be so popular in BF but I like mine...

2009 Cervelo RS - this picture is when everything was stock. I have since only made a few minor changes (changed the saddle, added a bike computer, added water cages, etc.).


(yes, I know this picture is backwards)

What"s with the Nytro on the blade of the fork? What are you doing to prevent the cables from wearing on the head tube?

My 63cm Felt F55:

I bought the bike back in early '05 and broke a chainstay this year, but Felt very graciously replaced the frame after four years of use with no questions asked.

My '84, 61cm Masi Gran Criterium (My joy, my pride, my wild-eyed, cherub-cheeked child-bride):

I thought you folks might enjoy some pics of my í86 Santana Arriva, purchased new the year after my wife and I got married. Iím posting this in both the Tandem forum as well as the Classic and Vintage forum. I may put it in the Southern California forum too.

Iím happy to say that itís still in pretty good shape. I recently did some refurbishing on it, cleaning it up, replacing cables and tires, etc. I still need to pull the bottom brackets and headset someday, but that can wait awhile. I know that nobody uses foam handlebar pads anymore, but we liked them then, and we still like them now.

Notice the old Arai Drum Brake. Now they just put big old disc brakes on them.

Here is a pic of the 3rd Eddy Merckx that I own..I bought this last year on CL.. It is a late 80's Merckx Corsa Extra - SLX.. The owner had it repainted, it came with Record 10 mix w/ Campy Eurus wheels, Mavic Brakes - C-record crankset - Mavic Headset, Cinelli Bar/Stem.. The bike is smooth and rides incredible..
