A couple of additions since my previous post in this thread.

A Snel Expedition. It has some interesting quirks, and doesn't look bad for such a tall frame (65 cm). Built for loaded touring, it feels rather massive and truck-like in this guise. Currently back to bits, but definitely the frame to build back up with a full complement of racks when we decide to go on a carry-your-own trip. Which might actually be this summer, with COVID an' all.



One of my better finds was a small late seventies RIH for mrs non-fixie. I want to coax her towards the real classic racing machines, so an important step was to get her on a racing bike with drop bars. I thought this pretty little red thing could seduce her if I made it comfortable and easy to operate (hence the tall-ish stem, randonneur bars and the brifters).



It worked. Her only comment was "Not sure, I think I prefer downtube shifters". The bike has been her ride on quite a few trips since.

She loves it, only ridden it a couple of times and not that she knows the difference but she's a good sport and likes what she likes so win, win when I get it right.

It is a bit noodly when it comes down to it, no surprise and still rides just fine so....

This is her #5 and I have a 531 AD mixte to build up someday but as you could imagine, a Pmount mixte has been on my watch list for a long time regardless and this one was a smokin deal, mostly original aside from the bars, stem and shifters which are a good upgrade for her that I don't have to do.

I still have to upright the Moto GT that she has had for quite awhile and get her out on them a lot more when the better weather gets here.

That bike is very nice, looks a little bigger than the others you posted? Do you find it slightly stiffer with the over-sized tubing or not really?

This is my red bike, a Vincolo built by an NZ frame builder called Liam O'Brien. It had some damage to the seat cluster that I got fixed and just did some touch up paint on so it would pass the 10 foot look rule. I need to get another 653 sticker for the seat tube though. I love riding this bike.

I think pink bikes deserve their own month. And February is a short month too!
Anyways, my current Ironman:

My previous Lemond Tourmalet. Great bike but the frame was a tad on the small side.

Whatever the case, I'm happy to see all those beauties over and over!

(By the way, just fyi, on the main C&V page where each thread is listed, there is a little arrow on top of the envelope to the left of the thread title to indicate if you've commented in that thread.)

Bright red Cannondale I picked up randomly for $250. Suntour Sprint group with a Superbe Pro crank.


It's currently awaiting a new stem, because as it turns out, the Modolo stem on it is one of the "death stem" models, and close inspection revealed a hairline crack by the binding bolt, which = DO NOT RIDE
