This is not terribly exciting, but it's a 2004 Felt, which is rapidly approaching "vintage" as an 8 speed. It's special to me because it was the first bike I bought that ticked all the boxes (fast, upright, perfect fit, index). These days, I have more bikes and more boxes.

@Drillium Dude, there are a lot of Colnagos I don't like, but I love that one.

Maybe I'll be the 1st Ochsner photo, I know there's several others here, and it's not even mine because of size but it's "in the family", and I don't have any brag-worthy bikes

Cool! Forgot I have one of those. Had it built up with a DA 7400 group, Acera brifters and a flat bar for a while, for the short-and-fast rides. It weighed next to nothing, but man, that bike was harsh!

I keep saying I haven't had one and then remember differently. I owned this very briefly. It was stolen on the first day I rode it.

This is a timely thread for me because I'm trying to pick a shade of silver or gray that will make the chrome pop a little more on this when I get it redone without overwhelming the delicate red decals.



And then there's this, which I've found is almost impossible to take a good picture of. (Got to be good looking 'cause it's so hard to see!)

Yep. Cold, soulless rocketships, they are; fast as heck but minimal enjoyment. It got moved along pretty quickly.

I should really sell or trade this Merlin Titanium. At ~18" it is too small for my father and I.



No longer have this titanium Bianchi.



Built this for my uncle.
