I'm still in the process of converting this MTB to an all rounder roadie. It's a Panasonic MC-5500. 1989. Plan to switch out the thumbies to down tube shifters, add Aluminum fenders and lighter wheels and saddle. Right now its at 27 1/4 lbs.
[IMG][/IMG]
This is my favorite right now, a 1987 Panasonic DX5000 road bike.
[IMG][/IMG]
This is the last of my (at present) three bike fleet. Probably the most attractive and for sure the most comfortable, a Panasonic Tourer.
[IMG][/IMG]
I'm 73 now and ride pretty often, leisurely, short trips. The getting there is what I ride for, not the destination.

2014 Specialized Crux Elite EVO Rival Disc. The gravel racing version of the cyclocross bike with carbon frame and hydraulic disc brakes. Sweet handling and super stable on fast descents. I'm going to need lower gearing for the hilly dirt roads I ride.

I just got into biking to get healthier. I bought the 29'er REI Novara Madrona the end of March and use it to haul groceries home, or around town. Then in May I bought the road bike, 48cm 2011 Specialized Dolce Sport Compact which I ride on group rides twice a week. I will be 63 in a few weeks. In just a few short months of (almost) daily riding I have toned up considerably, lost 10 lbs (about 5+ more to go :0) 12 miles with the group is now a breeze and ready to up it. I haul a pretty good load of groceries home on the Madrona, absolutely love the Ortleib bags. The car sits in the garage and have only put 2,000 miles on it since Christmas Eve.

Biking definitely makes me feel younger. BTW .. I have fixed the seat on the Madrona. It's now level. The pic was taken last Spring.

I made some minor changes and after the first ride was completely happy with the bike!

Several people I know have late 70s early 80s Reparto Corsa Bianchis that are pretty harsh riding bikes. The frames are most likely made with Columbus SP heavy gage tubing. This is a TreTubi frame that probably has Columbus SL main tubes with Falck forks and stays. It's a very light bike! :-)

Well now I've been hanging around C&V too long and have decided to build up another new lugged steel bike just because I haven't gotten to for awhile......And Bianchi has 3 great frames. The Dolomiti has Columbus tubing but I'm actually kind of leaning towards one of the Tipo Corsas. I'm thinking it would go well with some nicer early to mid 80s parts, Ambrosio Zenith Cassette hub & front, Velo Orange compact crankset, downtube shifters of course (probably wind up being friction) and non aero brakes.


So now I'll be green but not from envy It should be awhile before I even buy it and awhile longer before I get it together but I must.

I ride a Fuji Absolute2 (2012 model). I bought it last March. I sold all of my other bikes. I have replaced the bottle cages with gray brushed aluminum and also got a gel seat and ditched the pad.
