new tires

Just replaced 25s with cheap 35s. Test rode it as my now casual nasty weather gravel ride today. Major improvement. Its the only 80s era road bike I've found which clears 38c tires. They must have had really lousy roads in Austria back then!

Simoncini Cyclocross Special with Campagnolo carbon Chorus





I purchased this frame from an importer, Pedal Force. My first Carbon Fiber bike, it saw 10,000+ miles.



I added this Canyon Endurace approximately 3 years ago, itís now my primary bike. It currently has a 48&31 gravel crankset with an 11-32.

My 80 Schwinn Super LeTour. Completely original except for the seat. Still has the original tires. I've had it since new.

The iron grip of this 620 frame on its Dura-Ace componentry, DT Swiss wheels, and 42mm Soma tires is formidable and shows no sign of loosening. Sometimes I may be a little down on the steering, other times I think lesser (but still very good!) components could suffice and the Dura-Ace would be better served on an actual race bike, but then I ride it and the answer is a resounding NO. I love it.

I wish this thread would start a new as I don't remember if I already posted in previous years? Always worth posting again though.

Two "New to Me" black bikes this year - both from THIS CENTURY!

2005 Trek 5000 Made in USA, 120 OCLV carbon
From the original owner who claimed less than 2000 miles.


2003 Marin Portofino: Multi-shaped Columbus Thron tubing with Cinelli bars and stem.
I had one before, and couldn't pass it up.


This is really a very very dark purple, but can usually pass for black:
1993 Raleigh USA Technium RT600 Competition
Glued assembly with Reynolds 531 main tubes and fork, and 4130 steel stays glued to aluminum lugs.
Like the bike, hate the bars.


And I still have THESE and THIS.

Definitely NOT a C&V bike, but it's the one that sees the most outdoor duty: The wheels and tires are changed for the season, but this is what I use to commute, or really any time I need a geared bike. It's a Nashbar CX frame from 2003(ish) and it's set up with SRAM XO components. It fits me well, and will be with me for a little while.

Black Raleigh Bighorn with bullmoose bars (Canadian) will hopefully get some love this winter. I have ridden it some and it's a fun bike. It was a donation from an estate. The existing Sun Tour works well but I have a lovely Montech setup ready.
