    thanks! there's very little left of the original bike

    i'll probably put a selle italia SLR saddle on it too.
    and sadly the seatpost has to go, in exchange for something more forward.

    Steel is real!

    Here is my 92 Nishiki Sport, that I have had since high school, after her fresh rebuild at the end of 2006. I am still waiting on the correct seat post but this gets the job done for now! I have done one Tri and love passing those guys on the $3,000 rigs.

    The disc was customized by Tai at www.triathlonstickers.com
    He's located in (or guess it would be on...) Hawaii and does a fantastic job! Highly recommended!

    I repowdercoated my frame this week to mix it up a bit. New HED bars and wheels too.

    Newb question: why do tri bikes have more aggressive geometry than road racers? You would think that if the aggressive geometry provides some benefit for speed then road racers should want that more because they don't have to swim or run in addition to biking.

    There is no drafting in Tri's.

    There is in road racing.

    Meaning, having an aerodynamic position in road racing, while still important, is not important enough to sacrifice handling, braking ,etc..


    There are two places (I am sure there are more) that I can think of off the top of my head in road stage races that the aero position is of utmost importance.

    1. Time trials (sometimes even more aggressive position than tri bike)
    2. Fast Mountain decents (they get in crazy positions on those decents)

    ^ So the compromise to Tri bike (relative to a road bike) is handling? You seems suggest that. I ask because I have never ridden a Tri bike.

    Road racers need brakes and shifting in hand at all times.

    Not to mention the geometry differences which the UCI has banned.

    Just had her built up today:


    Dura Ace drivetrain except for cranks & rival brakes.
    Various mix of other things that I picked for looks/performance (thomson post, vision basebar, profile s-bends, and I LOVE my oval red carbon brake levers)

    Not totally complete (ie: missing tape), but all that is going to be taken care of by the time final fitting & adjustment is completed. I also have a set of HED Alps getting put on once I have them redished and trued up.

    Yes they do take some crazy positions on the decents! I was watching the Tour de Georgia this weekend and saw some extreme positions.

    Here's mine. I just added the aerobars last week (Profile Design T2+). Weight is right around 23 lbs with a water bottle. I haven't upgraded much though the current wheels (Xero Lite XR1) were essentially a necessary upgrade since i b0rk3d the rear wheel from the original set (Xero XSR-3) when hopping over a drain gutter grate. Current tires are a Michelin Dynamic on the rear (rotated from the front) and a Krylion Carbon on the front. Topeak Road Morph pump is on the seat tube, and i've got a pouch for food on the top tube, a gel flask on the stem, and the cyclometer (Cateye Astrale 8) mounted to a Minoura Swing Grip under the stem. Seat is the original Fizik Aliante with a DeSoto neoprene cover. Drivetrain includes Truvativ compact cranks (with 50/34 chainrings), 105 rear derailuer, Tiagra front derailuer, and a SRAM 12-26 casette (from which i removed the 26t cog and replaced it with a 29t cog for climbing).

    Digitoast, your bike is damn near visual perfection. I hope your alps are the silver ones.
