1992 Tommaso TSX - Rides like a very nice 531 bike.

1987 Specialized Team Allez SPX - built by David Tesch and painted by Brian Baylis.

1985 Pinarello Montello SLX - sandblasted and redone in '92 by the previous owner (He didn't like the four color fade!)

~1989 Limongi SLX - odd mash of parts by the last owner

1988 Marinoni Special SLX - bent, set out as trash, Campy stripped, straightened, my shed parts

I guess I'm going to have to start a new thread to show my bikes with Thron and Genius tubing.

For now, here's what I've got with SLX.

This one looks like several from when this thread was young -- 1989 Bianchi Mondiale

The only other one I have is my 1987 Pinarello Montello ("got to be good looking 'cause it's so hard to see").

Gilles Bertrand touring bike built with SPX. One of the stiffest bikes I have ever ridden, very uncomfortable with any tire narrower than 700 x 30
