Just another bike

So as of late, i've been reshooting all of my bikes for Velospace.org cause i think it's a really cool site along with bikeforums, I've also found that a few members on here do frequent that site as well, robbietunes has already found me on there, and i saw a lot of his cool rides as well. Anyways I've posted this bike before, but just not with these pics. The bike isn't anything super special, it's a tange infinity frame with a full matching shimano 105 group that works great, I've wanted to sell this as a flip along with all the other flips i do each year, but i just couldn't do it, there's just something about the color that makes me keep it.

I enjoy seeing shots of people's bikes on here a lot so i thought i'd show you guys the re-shoot photos. ALSO, please feel free to post your reshot bikes if you'd like. Enjoy...

**NOTE - no, my legs are not so powerful that i warped the chainrings on the crank, that's just biopace



















Also here's a link to my account if you guys wanted to look at my other stuff, but most of you guys have seen everything already.

https://velospace.org/user/50271

and if you haven't seen this site before, there is a rediculous amount of bike porn on that site, pictures galore

Gorgeous!

What a great color combo. That seat has to be original too! Don't ruin it, it might be impossible to find another one.

Feel free to re-shoot and re-show this bike anytime!

that bike is awesome, but you need a black crank and/or black chainrings. that's the first time i've ever said that in my life.

I like it, and I see what you mean by the paint. That blacked out fluted seatpost is killer.

Keep the alloy cranks, they provide just the right amount of abstract to the black / pink combo.

Great bike of course but I like your photography as well, good use of selective depth of field.

Is this bike in the "sports touring" thread? Seems like a perfect example.

Cheers,

thanks scott, i'm glad someone noticed it, i probably should have opened up the depth of field a little bit more, but i don't mind the way the pics came out

What a lovely old Steve Bauer! I, too, like the colors.

I have been lucky enough to own a few Steve Bauers over the years, and almost all have sported bright colors, and schemes. Sadly, the only pictures I can share is of a bicycle I built to spec for a young lady, a few years ago - Abbey's Steve Bauer...

That's the kind of bike that gets noticed on charity group rides.
Well balanced, clean, and ready to eat up miles.

The bar wrap is very cool.

The bar wrap is very cool.

That's the one thing i always wanted to with it, i figure if i do a cancer ride then i would use this bike, it was the first thing i thought of, but it's 1cm too small, i'd use it anyways.

In a funny way this bike goes against my principles of what i keep in the stable. The criteria i use for a keeper must be these: High end, must be good condition, Italian (I'll consider other stuff but it has to be amazing), brifter set ups, and about 56-57 cm.

It goes against it because it has downtube shifters, I hate downtubes, these aren't so bad cause the index, but i don't enjoy them, also because i know it's not super high end or anything, it's probably a 7-8 on a scale of one to ten for where it ranks. Also it's not my size, i just keep it around as a lender bike for my friends to come on bike rides with me. And it's not even Columbus tubing!! lol it's tange infinity, i'm sure that's pretty decent

That color combo and paint job is just so awesome, i love nicely colored bikes that are classy, not the skittle/ice cream truck colored fixie bikes and i like bright colored bikes (my celeste). It does have quality parts and cool highlights like the seat post, stem and wraps too.

I've tried in my head to sell it, but i never could, there's just something about it, it's like a secret love or something hahah

Even if you only ride it once a year, Do Not Sell It! That's a fantastic looking bike.
