the wheelset/ build kit was a birthday gift from my father who is injured and can no longer ride. all i had to do was add the cranks (he rode a compact), the frameset, pedals, and bottle cages. of this, all i had to buy was the bottle cages. everything else i already owned. these frames may be cheap, but they really do ride reasonably well.

it was a pretty busy summer for me this year, but i hope to race next year.


record 10spd (chorus cranks), eurus wheels, itm cockpit:

edit: red hudz are on the way, the black ones are worn.

My soon-to-be new-to-me race rig. Just need a few more parts that I'm hoping to find at the LBS tomorrow.

If anything, I win for the worst photos...LOL . I have posted before, but I am always making changes (new cockpit, pedals, etc). Threw on a set of race wheels for the bling factor for the photos. RS2 with Full Sram Red (with Force 53 Chainring), Ti Zeros, 3T Team stem and post 3T Pro bar (I like alum). It has been a great bike. New bike coming soon though!!!. Sorry, the photos are in my shop and not in front of a garage door.

You need:

1) a seat post
2) a saddle
3) a new avatar

Interesting that you have a lot of spacers but then rotate your bars way down. But hey, whatever works...

Bar height and bar rotation are two completely different fit considerations

True, although they do affect eachother. Bar rotation will change effective saddle to bar drop as well reach. Meaning measurments to the hoods can change, but stack and reach of the actual bicycle geometry will not change.

Actually if you look at the bar ends I don't really have them rotated as they bottoms are nearly parallel to the ground. It just looks like they are rotated because of the angle of the pic and the black colors. I now have white and red bar tape.

Some of you might have seen this from the 41, anyway just picked up this beauty, the build will basically be like my System Six but with a different seat post and stem of course, in the end hoping to have some 44-80 mm deep carbon tubulars on it as well as some other goodies. Full build pics will most likely come next week. I'm going for full blown crit machine with this one.

Congrats! I have the same. Yes, it's a very very stiff frame, but wait 'til you feel how forgiving it is on a rough corner when you're hitting it hard. I've never felt so confident on a sweeping descent at 50mph pushing 450W with a good lean going. Really nice frame dynamics.

Yours looks great!

I've been lusting after the SST for a while. Those things are sweet looking. All the reviews are excellent. Kinda expensive for a Fuji and not the lightest frame around, but nice looking.

I probably don't have to worry about that myself but I'm sure going to work on it. I did reach 52.4 mph descending yesterday and this thing was solid and had zero twitchyness.

That's the way I felt back on my steel bike... and again on my Madone. Can I hook you up with my Fuji shop?

Hot. What saddle is that?

My new team is sponsored by Cannondale. I think I can see getting one in the near future.

The Bianchi is done, just a hair over 18lbs without trying. Oh Baby!! Pics to come.
BTW that Fuji SST is sexy indeed.
