What! Show off bikes! I'm in! Can't sleep due to the achy knee anyway, LOL!

Here's the current bikes.


CAAD8 Optimo

Davidson Impulse

David Kirk built Fishlips bike

"Oscar Freire" Olmo. Found the proper team flite saddle he rode but can't justify the $500 price for it.

Vanni Losa built Krapf bike

Colnago Master Extra Light

Kelly Bedford built Pacenti I just got this week. It's actually got a white Fizik Arione on it now.

Paletti show bike, one of my more beautiful rides.

Series PDG Paramount

Giordana XL Super, still my all time favorite.

And how about the past bikes....


Trek 560 Pro Series. Too flexy in the BB under this fat old man.

Schwinn 684, quite nice but not enough feedback on the road to connect with this one.

Giordana Antares, such a fast ride that was passed on due after enjoying for several years

Centurion Ironman, lovely bike that always just felt too small under me

Cilo project bike this year. Refubished and then donated to the local bike collective

Schwinn Circuit, sublime on smooth pavement but the front was harsh on my normal chipseal roads. I regret letting this go and want another one.

Schwinn Circuit. Dang near mint condition. Bought for my son to try road riding but he decided to stick to mountain bikes.

Another "diamond in the rough" find that was refurbed, enjoyed, and passed on.

Colnago Super, a bit of a mess when seen up close. This was totally refurbed also and then set up to friction shift an 8 speed cassette. A really fine ride that was part of a 4 bike trade to another owner.

Concorde "mystery model". Winter project that I foolishly sold without ever riding one mile on it.

And some more...


KHS ZH2B Aero Comp. A really nicely built bike that was a winter project. Enjoyed for a few miles and then passed on to the old owner of Fishlips Bikes.

Lemond Maillot Jaune, one of my favorites. Finally passed this mint bike on when I got the one in Team Z colors.

Bridgestone Mile 112. Another really good ride but like so many others in the stable. It was passed on after enjoying for a couple of years.

Miyata 312 I refurbished for a friend.

Ochsner SL project that I probably should have kept.

Orbea Cabestany, crudely built frame that was beat up. This bike was just consistently faster than so many of my "premier" race bikes despite how rough it was. Had it set up in various configurations over the years and finally passed it on after using it as a gravel bike.

Giordana Polaris, this came to me from an ex racer who was working at The Pro's Closet. Loved for several years and passed on during the major downsizing.


Schwinn Prologue. Cheap find that was an excellent rider. Passed on after years of enjoyment.

Jan De Reus, one I never planned to let go. Local family came by about another bike for their son and wound up talking me out of this one for their daughter. They were doing the LOTAJA race together and needed road bikes for the kids. Totally regret this one.

Scott CR1 Pro. Fast, light, good climber, not comfortable on chipseal roads.

My fav are Fizik Kurve Chameleons and I snatch them up anytime I see a decent one. I can ride all three of the Fizik main shapes but have to be really careful of the angle and overall setup of the Antares type. They usually don't work on the rides with really aggressive bar drops. The Flite saddles don't work well for me unless they are on bikes I'm riding fast all the times. Fast means light on the saddle as I work the spin. Cruising on a Flite turns into torture over too many miles. So of the other white saddles where ones that don't work well for me and put on the bikes for sale. Like any Turbo shaped saddles, they kill me.

When I sell a bike locally I'll list it with a saddle that looks good on it but normally have a bunch of spares around that I let the buyer pic from if they want something different.

I've always liked white tape, white saddle and white cables. Next time I wrap these bars I've got new white hoods to go with it. I've got so many all black bikes it's nice to have something different.
