Thanks! Iím itching to get this one finished, wheels are the final step. Front was finished this Monday, the rear is laced and should be wrapped up this week. TB14/DA 7speed. Then itís a matter of taking some measurements and ordering up some 28mm rubber once confirmed itíll fit. If all goes to plan Iíll get it out this weekend on some 25mm clinchers I have sitting around. Itíll be a nice change from the ~22mm tubs pictured.

Cool bike for sure. I'm kind of surprised how much I'm digging some of these yellow bikes. Lot's of pretty ones.

Holland Jones - that's a name I hadn't heard for some time. Everyone in the SF bike scene knew him.

I see the partial yellow bikes have arrived....

Guess I can add mine too then.

First would be the Serotta CSI:




Colors of the 1994 Coors Light Team




Another shot of how it is now from a recent ride<br/>

Then there's the Giordana XL Super, my overall favorite bike:





Current build configuration



Out on the road with me, feels like the perfect dance partner on each ride.

I've got a couple of more with yellow but it's more accent than anything.

Well, it isn't technically a bike yet, but it is yellow - a 199? Fondriest. Note the shaped steel tubing, and a seatpost lug only. Due to the shaped tubing, lugs were probably not available.

Kinda hard to tell, isn't it. Maybe the name should be more prominently displayed.

1995 Serotta CSI

Was sold as a '97, but I believe the S/N makes it a '95. I picked it up earlier in the summer and have been enjoying it before I rework it this winter.

One of the original DuraAce cranks on that one. Puch Brigadier also used it.

Cannondale

I may have posted this last year, but it's still yellow. My Cannondale SM600 which I built in 1985 when I worked at a Bike Shop in NY. Made a few changes (and wish I had saved every part!) Some of the changes:


Installed Bullseye Cranks



When I replaced the steel fork with ab SR Litage Aluminum, I needed to change the front Rollercams to Cantilevers. Pedersen SE brakes with Odyssey Straddle Rods.
