Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Jesus Christ! Excellent visual design and crafstmanship. Absolutely stunning paint scheme on both bikes. The commuter reminds me of my Dads old 1970 Dodge Dart, really nostalgic green. It is my dream to design and craft my own frames... probably will stay a dream....but well done indeed!

There is nothing better aesthetically than to have your saddle pushed all the way down and then to jack your handlbars all the way up.

You can always change it for the purpose of taking pictures.

Nice bike....

Oh and I don't know what the deal is with this resizing, never had an issue before but I am loosing quality when I scale this image down from its HUGE original size (taken with a 12 MP Nikon D-SLR). The original can be seen here: http://mysite.verizon.net/imagelib/s...et=tlx_piczw2j

A $15 no-name brand I picked up at City Bikes new because it was silver. Actually, I have 3 of these. And they are machined like Thomsons, just not as cool. And they are infinitely adjustable.

LeMond Maillot Jaune in Reynolds 853. The drivetrain is Campy Chorus (2003 I believe. Right before they switched to CF only) and Ksyrium elites.

You might pick out a few mods I make to compensate for motorcycle accident some time ago.

I couldn't agree more, I'm not much of a road rider but figured this would be a fun build to learn a bit about road bikes.


horrible pic I know. I figure I need to put more than 30 miles on her before I can justify cleaning her up nice and putting her infront of the garage door though.

Yea he has two Pegorettis now and it really has me thinking that I will do my next build on a Marcelo frame this coming winter. His next bike is a Sachs...he has been in line for a year and a half now I believe it is.

Oh Rad - any chance I could get you to go to the link of the full rez shot and re-size it for me without the distortion? I would like to have a proper photo up there.

I couldn't resist posting a pic of my Orange Marcelo after seeing that gorgeous Responsorium! I've had this Pegoretti out on 2 MS 150 rides (Beyond the Beltway and Tour de Shore) and couldn't be happier with it.

Too many beautiful bikes in the last two pages to mention, but has anyone noticed the popularity of campy on steel bikes vs. other frame materials?

Is it just Campy or that the bikes have less CF showing? I especially like the alloy cranks and brakes on the steel frames. That combination just looks natural to me.

I'm a member of a car forum online and now that I have an interest in road bikes, I figure theres no better place to get help than a bike community. This bike has been my project the past week and I think i have invested close to 20 hours on her. It's my first time restoring a bike and I've only just rode them and never got around to learning them. Now that I have the itch, I know what to do better on my next restore so I'm already looking for another one... can anyone figure out what kind of bike it is?

Looks almost like a beach cruiser, but definitely very low end probably originally bought from a department store. I say this by the stamped front and rear drop outs (where the axles attach), cheap welds, american bottom bracket with steel cranks and the ridiculously shallow seat and head tube angles.

Post in the Classic and Vintage forum and they may be able to help but I doubt it as there are almost no markings on the frame.

Whenever Photobucket gets back up, I'll post my Gazelle with its lovely alloy Record crankset and 32 spoke Open Pros.
