Three of these I built or acquired this year, and the white bike has been with me a long time.

Serotta Rear Triangle

I still remember the first time I climbed a hill on it. I got out of the saddle and then I sat down. I thought I broke the frame,
as it compressed and then sprang back!

1984 Miyata 710 that used to be my triathlon bike. Pulled it out of the rafters to rebuild it into my fitness ride. One thing led to another and ended up updating everything except frame and forks. 🙄




I was too chicken to spread the dropouts, so settled for 2x7. Shimano R2000 brakes and derailleurs. I never really liked the SunTour Symmetric shifters, so replaced them with indexed Shimano RX-100s (indexed shifters rock).



The chainrings were bent, so replaced the crankset and BB with NOS Shimano A550.



It’s a great ride - absolutely silent.
