This is the bike I built starting with a new frame and cobbling together parts from various sources, rides pretty nice but I haven't worked all of the kinks out quite yet.

Saturday was my first race (Folsom Classic Crit) on the new race bike: Ridley Excalibur with a Campy 10 mix (Chorus/Centaur). Won a typical NorCal crit prime.

If you see one of these three it's probably me -- especially in SF. While it's technically a local brand, I've never seen anyone else, ever, on a SOMA mini-velo. It's my everyday bike in the Financial District, terrific handling in stopped traffic.

I picked this up off craigslist a few months ago and have made some changes along the way. It currently has 26x2.3 tires so i was looking into getting rims that can accommodate that tire size. The rims look to be a bit narrow for the tire.



Here is my road bike/commuter. I am not sure on the year or model? Any help would be appreciated.



See you on the road or trails!

Hey everyone. I just picked up a new ride and thought I'd show you all. GT Wheels4Life Peace Tour. It had Avid 5's installed by the shop because another customer complained about braking performance ( a cracked brake pad ) I've been riding it nonstop and love it. I'll try and get a photo of it in the wild...

I have a 2012 CAAD10 5, 58 cm frame and all factory components (for now). I live on the border of North and South in the Central Valley now but I grew up in the bay area and still ride up there a lot when visiting friends/parents.



I also had a 1987 Schwinn World Sport, 63 cm frame for cruising around until the lock was cut and someone stole it from in front of the restaurant I was at in broad daylight a couple weeks ago

My Cannondale R800. It gets me to those beautiful views :-) And my old Steel Frame. She was way too big for me, and I had to sell her to afford my new bike - but worthy of mention

Just scored one of my grail bikes last week as a frameset, a 1975 Fuji Professional.



Updated 6/29 for it's current state. The initial build was really just a test build with what I had on hand. Due to the utter unavailability of some of the stock components, I'm gradually working towards a Nuovo Record build. Still a work in progress

Here's my 2011 Specialized Tricross Elite getting picked up from San Francisco General in 2012 after I was hit by a car at Lincoln and 12th on my way to meet a friend for CX training -- I broke five bones, but Sue here was hardly scratched. Figures.

Here's Latrice after a brief morning commute. She's labelled as a Raleigh Competition, but is really more of a Grand Sport.
