Pictures have been posted here a couple of times over the years as I have upgraded components.
I ride on steel when in the Southeast, too. Even in triathlons.
Nothing wrong with having a bike named for the legend....
1987 Centurion Dave Scott Ironman "Expert"
Profile design bars and seatpost, Cinelli stem.
Yes, those are downtube shifters, 8-sp.
The disc cover is cloth, so 80's.
It's not light. Neither am I.
I think back when I was fast, I was hallucinating.
1982 Lotus Classique
1987 D'Arienzo (Basso) SLX
2004 Cinelli XLR8R2
2014 Wraith Hustle
2014 Wraith Paycheck (pending)
Just picked up this beauty on CL in Chicago!
Come on guys, just some pic that I found, I'm not that dumb
I converted this second hand Specialized Allez Sport into my tri-ride. Up until now its ok. I think eventually I would like a transition or....ehm....shiv.
- Stem, for a shorter one
- Handlebars, for a Wing T2
- added T2 aero bars
- Shifters, brakes, cables, etc.
those wheels are nice

I know. Wrong chain ring, bad light, bad angle. Still full of awesome. Was given to me by a guy that had it in his attic for 5 years.
Sold my Scott so i thought i'd post my new rig in the build stage.
Hope to be faster on this thing but if not at least it looks pretty cool!
I've don'e several Olympic and Ironman 70.3's and just finished my first almost full Ironman distance triathlon in Japan's Strongman Triathlon. It's a 3K swim 155K bike and 42K run. During the race I would of told you that I'm never doing that kinda of distance race again, but now 2 days later I'm starting to change me mind.
My son's Cervelo P2C Ultegra
The original frame has a crack in the head tube and Cervelo gave him a replacement. That's why it has a red fork on it from the old frame.
That trek is flipping sweet.
Just finished this build about a month ago...too bad a month ago, I twisted my knee. I got to ride it yesterday and today for the first time. Sooooooo smooth. Shifting was great. First time on a Tri bike my brother and I put together. By the way, should the rear shifter of Dura Ace rattle a little bit? Is that normal? Or maybe I have a loose washer running about in it? Let me know your thoughts.
Also, I just got a sweeet deal on some zipp 606 tubulars which I will post later. I'll need to get a new 10 spd cassette with that too.
Here's mine. It's been doing TT's for a while, going to try a TRI this year.. I can ride, I can swim, but I can't run for beans...
Lotus Elite 600, circa 1987. Yes, those are 2 different sized wheels. It was designed that way, and I love it!
Shimano 600 components, 99% complete...just missing the original pedals(looking!)
2005 Quintana Roo Kilo
Spinegy Rev X wheels of death, Brooks saddle & wraps & bag, Ultegra components.
I run, I bike, but I can't swim worth a darn. These Tri bikes are just for fun.
