It is a no name carbon frame from China. I bought it 2nd hand about a year and a half ago for £80. Added full 105 groupset to it and a set of Campag Vento wheels. Runs like a dream. Very, very comfortable bike.

When I got it,, the previous owner had put S-Works decals on it - definitley not an S-Works! Wish it was lol. I added the red Batman insignia on the front, as my son calls it "The Bat Bike"

Still, a really nice bike to ride.

Here's my bike at the top of a hill that I've always had problems with, been years since I've regularly ridden and was so proud I had to take this!

My Waterford track bike -- and a pic or 2 of me at my absolute heaviest -- I was around 330 in these pics - im 270 now








And a pic of my custom track bike built to replace the Waterford --- it looks pretty sporty, but I specce'd it with a tall headtube - sloping top tube keeos the standover height decent even with the tall head tube -- and the integrated seat mast is there because slipping seatposts are a pain on the track (or anywhere for that matter) - plus I thought it looked sweet --- the bars also are extremely short and shallow compared to a traditional old school track bar like the Waterford wears

in progress



and - finished



The teal Yeti is my daily MTB -- current MTB fashion with a long travel 29'er has the bars up so high, I didn't have to make any special Clyde specific fit concessions to it -- its super comfy on dirt -- but feels a little like pushing a shopping cart on pavement



Daily driver road bike is a Tarmac ---- this is the pic from the day I brought it home, but I have made some Clyde specific tweaks to it since -- specifically I am using aluminum Specialized Hover riser bars, a steel railed Power saddle and I ditched the white tape in favor of black -- and it is now wearing more appropriate pedals --- the wheels are a proprietary spacing -- haven't done anything different -- YET -- but I am very careful not to hit anything with them




I have a whole passel of C&V machines as well but these are my main fleet I would say

Lots of good looking bikes in this thread

A bunch of these machines you wouldn't even guess were Clydesdale piloted outside of some tweaks here and there (higher bars or sturdier wheels here and there ) ----- but a lot of full race high performance looking machinery in here too

Iíve got two that get an equal amount of seat time. The Blue is an all-arounder that I use on the gravel as well as the road. The Ironman is my road bike and is currently being set up with a Dura-Ace group. I started at 257lbs and have worked my way down to 215, but Iíll probably always be a Clyde.
