Bikes: Red bikes. Why do I have so many red bikes?! I thought green was my favorite color

I was scanning CL and saw a bike for sale in front of such and RB-1. I shot the seller a message and he put out a price that was fair for the condition of the bike (had some drivetrain issues and rust) but I snapped it up! Itís my pocket rocket in the stable.

I've only seen on RB-1 my size for sale locally and I missed it by an hour. Price was fair and it was nice.

Good evening, gentlemen. Here's a pic of my 1990 (I think) edition of a Bridgestone RADAC 3100. Full Dura-Ace (7-speed). I bought this bike new from Al's Bicycles on the south side of Oklahoma City back in 1990 and it was my club ride for several years. It's a 61cm frame. I immediately rebuilt the wheels with sew-up rims, as I was running Conti Sprinters at the time (still have that wheelset you can see hanging from the hook in the background). This picture shows a different pair of clincher wheels that I laced up probably in 1993 using Campy Chorus hubs, DT spokes and Mavic MA40 rims. San Marco Rolls saddle with titanium rails. I retrofitted bar-end shifters, as that was my preference in the days before shifting was incorporated into the brake levers. It's still in impeccable condition. Suppose I'll have it forever, as I just can't let it go. I still ride it occasionally.
