This is one of them ... a 2012 Neo Primato with Chorus 11s
My wife leaned a broom against it this week ... I very politely asked her not to do that again. Thankfully she's understanding of my ... fixation, for lack of a better description

The Cannondale has Shimano XTR...I occassionally live a little.

BTW, your bike is gorgeous. My wife is equally understanding about my bike fixation. I don't ask her about her shoes and purses, she doesn't ask about my bikes. Perfect marriage.

And here is my 1993 Specialized Allez Pro. This is the machine I have put the most miles on now at just over 40,000 miles. I bought it brand new in early 1994. It has been durable. 2 bottom brackets, 1 rear derailleur, that I picked up on eBay 7 years ago, cables, tires etc. Still love the feel of the steel ride.

I've been riding my 1984 Trek 610 a lot lately; the bike handles exceptionally well and with a triple has plenty of gearing. I bought the frame a year ago from a BF member and built it up to do some long distance rides. I have newer bikes but this one is a mile eater:

I got this about 2 years ago:



I got this in 1987 when I was in grad school, but recently degraded it to make it more rideable in my declining years:

Changes lately

Well, my rotation of bikes has changed a good bit since I last posted to this. So let me update things a bit.

The Madone 5.9 is gone and I'm selling the Scott CR1 Pro. They just don't fit my current needs.

My main ride now is this beautiful Giordana Xl Super (Superleggero) I got his winter and built up with a sweet silver alloy Athena Groupset. Rides really nice yet is fast and a blast to ride!



This was a NOS frame I got straight from the Distributor, beautiful!



Then I have the 1st Giordana I got fixed up now and in the regular rotation. In fact, I'm taking it out today.



Velocals hooked me up with some new decals for this as I "freshened" the bike up.



Then I have this "work in progress" bike. A 1989 Greg LeMond (pre-trek) Ventoux Cromor tubed bike made by Billato in Italy just like the Giordanas above. I've got some fat cushy 28c tires on it for comfort and am debating updating with an extra Campagnolo 11 speed Athena groupset I have. It's really comfortable like it is and if I change it to Campagnolo I need to find some cheap, light, and yet wide wheels to mount those 28C tires on. Right now I"m using the set of Vision Team 30s that came on my Lynskey.



Look how nice the paint is on this old beast!



Then is the Lynskey R265 which I bought as my "dream bike" after saving for many years. A really nice ride but I always seem to take out the Superleggero instead, LOL!



Finally, I added this Club Fuji to the mix. It looked pretty bad when I got it but cleaned up super nice. So nice with all the original parts that I decided to list it for sale locally in case a Fuji lover wanted it before I start swapping parts.
