OK. Eye Candy version 5.0. Gray/Silver/Titanium bikes

Bring on the dull, the color-deficient Don't hide in your embarrassment any longer! Let's see them.
Just so happened to sell two red bikes and acquire two grey/silver bikes. Just how things worked out. Kind like the colors myself. I can change them with any accent color I wish now.



I know you are sick of seeing this picture. But it's all I have of it:


Got another :

Color still the same at 8,000 ft




When you're climbing, even the dirt tastes refreshing.

Here's my Habanero Team Issue.
BTW, is there any way to post photos in the body of the message without using an online service to which you upload the photo first?

My 1996 Litespeed Classic



I bought it two summers ago as a frameset only. I'd swapped over components from another bike for that first year. Last winter it got all its own components. But my camera is busted so no pics of it in its current build--Ultegra 6700 and Velocity A23 PRO build wheels.

Right now for winter its wearing Crud RoadRacer Mk II fenders too.

Badger's Project Sirrus (2010 Sirrus Comp; frame/fork, stem/bars/seatpost and wheelset are [for now] what's left of the original).
The ultimate Fred bike (apologies for the lousy pic).

Thanks, BD. Don't have one; will have to think about it. Not sure I want one.

I'm curious to know what your objection is to an on line service. I use this one .It's free and no membership or login required. Very seldom get my photos dropped either.
I think you probably have to sign up to store photo albums on their site, but I just use it to show pics in a post.
