lol, so i guess none us here have full-on tri bikes here yet right?

well here is my new frameset that I'll be building up soon, courtesy of Rippin.

I got some ridiculously good deals on Performance yesterday - they had a Shimano sale, and on top of that I had a 20% off coupon - I ended up getting all my stuff brand new for cheaper than I could get it USED on ebay!!

Delirious,

I don't have a tri-bike, just a road bike with aero bars, etc.

Show us posts day by day as you build it up. It may get me excited and want to build my own. Is the frame new? and have you built bikes from the ground up before?

Jim

memphisjim: I'll post day by day pics - great idea!

This is my first time building up from the ground. I won't be doing it myself, but I will be enlisting the help of a good friend, who has alot of experience with bike building.

This frame is not new, but it is very low miles in almost new condition. I believe it's a 99, purchased new in 2001. It's not QR's sexiest frameset (no aero tubes), but still I got a great deal.

Believe it or not, I did all my math and figured that I will be able to build this up for $800 TOTAL, with brand new ultegra gruppo, LOOK pedals, and cyclocomputer!!

$800! I'm impressed.

Looking forward to watching the progression.

Rollers take a bit getting used to but once you ride on them a few times they are great, but as with any indoor riding it can get boring

That is a beautiful frame, I really like that frame has a elegant beauty to it

Haha..nice to see it built up!!....I hope you get good use out of her. Seeing my first Tri frameset again brings back good memories. Still one of the classiest tri-frames out there - black beauty with the armadillo logo!

deliriou5,

How many $$ do you have in it now? Still around $800?

Here's the latest pics of my Caloi Pro-Road converted to a Tri-bike



She have:

Profile Design Split Second Aerobars
Profile Design Airwing Handlebar
Specialized Comfort Saddle
Shimano Ultegra Bar End Shifters
Profile Design BRC Carbon Fork
Cateye Atrale 8 computer
Specialized Armadillo Tires
and Look Pedals

I know that is not the best bike in the world, but I love her, very comfortable, lite and nice handle.

Keep posting your pics or comments! Don't let Triathlon Forums Die...!!!

Here is my bike, but my God, That Hed frame is Awesome. Well I don't know how to post pictures but heres the link to the homepage Felt-S-32(real similar to the B2 above, just not as light or aero or nearly as sweet but they both say Felt), http://www.feltracing.com/2004_bikes/s32.html , I love this bike. For my first tri-bike, I'm glad I chose this over the QR Kilo.

This is my Trek 1000. It's got all of the standard parts except the Century Aero bars. I'd like suggestions of what to upgrade next.

After seeing the nice Softride and remembering I had a frame picture I could post, thought I'd throw it out and bring back the bike thread. This is the second bike I've owned that was custom made but not for me, I still hope there is a little more TLC involved in putting my bikes together.
Frame was made about 4(2001) years ago, raced for 2(2001 & 2002) seasons, and now I own it. Going to outfit it with a bunch of Shimano 600(got them all very cheap) from the last year it was made and switch over parts from my road bike(upgrading to a full Ultegra) until it's a 9 speed and using Vision tech base and aerobars. Just haven't settled on wheels, I might just train on this over the winter with my roadies wheels and get new wheels come spring time, when I have more money.
