I use to have a Cannondale 3.0 bike which I assume was similar but a little newer than the Criterium? I used to call that bike "the brick." Murderously stiff it was.

A lot of great bikes here. Nice thread idea, @noglider. @fleslider has a nice pic from the top looking down toward the front wheel of a really nice chrome Paramount. Must... Resist... N+1... Sigh...

Here is the Lemond as I had it before selling it to @andy_antipas. Analogous to how off-white is to white, this might be called off-silver or off-chrome. It's made of titanium and is bare metal.



Andy and I traded frames, as we had each other's sizes. The one I have now is also a Lemond Ti, but mine is grey, which I'll display in the grey thread.

I'll squeak a few in here before the deadline...some of these are pewter, but figured that was close enough. The paint on all three sparkle quite nicely in the sun light.

1979 Trek 710



1981.5 Trek 957/9



My newest addition a 1984? Serotta Titan (I think)

Ooh, me like. I have a 2007 D7 that goes with me on some trips - the vehicle I use has almost no cargo space. It's not even remotely as pretty as yours - but it does the job.

This is my sister-in-law’s silver Surly Pacer. It’s 1x10, with LOTS of spacers and interrupter levers for a comfy upright position on the tops of the bars.

i ordered this ron cooper frame in '79. it took a year to collect the parts to finish it. it's all campi, i bought the parts as i could afford them. i wanted something unique so i had the frame and forks chrome plated. the pics make it look silver, but out in the sun it still has some shine to it. it was chromed in '80.

I just picked this up on Thursday - '77 Schwinn Super Le Tour 12.2 in Chrome. Waiting for some framesaver before I build it back up - well, I've got to clean a bunch of stuff too. Hopefully I ride it in a few weeks.

Here's mine, '73 Super Course, stripped, built up for a test ride prior to paint. The saddle adjustment and pedals were temporary. I love the rat rod look, maybe I'll build one that way someday. Also my '07 Roubaix. Is 11 years old vintage yet, if not the rider certainly is.

1991 Schwinn Paramount PDG. Stripped to bare metal then powdercoated "clear". Looks silver in some light, champagne gold under other light. I'm not quite sure what color it is.

I'm reviving this thread early for June, as I don't trust myself to remember tomorrow (June 1). Let's see some chrome and silver bikes!

Save gray bikes for November.

While driving a car in NYC this week I saw a chrome car. I don't think I've ever seen one of those.
