This is my 2003 Bianchi XL Boron frame and fork. Newly added are the Campy Zonda wheels and ITM Millenium stem. The hardware is a Campy mix including everything from Veloce to a couple of Record parts, but is much older than the rest of the bike and is 8-spd. Hopefully within the next year it will be upgraded to full Chorus 10-spd. (This is my first attempt at posting a pic, so if it doesn't work I'd appreciate the next person telling me how to do it properly.)

I just today purchased my first road bike in nearly 30 years - after riding my dad's old Fuji 10-speed for the past few months.

New bike: Cervelo Prodigy with Ultegra gear; white with red trim and tires.

Plans are to ride it on tours, leisurely rides. But it clearly can be ridden fast! My goal is to get as fit as my 81-yr-old dad and join him on rides. He just bought a new Specialized Allez - aluminum frame w/105 gear.

Photos to be posted when I pick up the bike - having a triple added.

Full Durace Groupo (inc. pedals)

ITM Millinum Super over bars and stem
Thompson Setpost (now a EC70)

I'd show my 2003 Fuji Team, but I don't think it's worthy. It's a lemon! :irritated

Redwood from Rivendell Bicycle Works -
65 cm lugged steel frame
full Shimano 105 Groupo
Brooks Saddle

Bit of a retro bike, I'm not into racing just wanted a change of pace from my mtb. What an amazing ride. It is pretty new so I dont have any good pix of it yet. Serial number on the frame is 8 !!

Here's my LeMond Zurich w/ full Ultegra. Rolf Vector Comp's (not crazy about these).

I am lucky to have what I think is one of the last few hundred Schwinn Paramount OS's before they got bought from Scott and later changed from Schwinn Paramount to Waterford. I had it painted purple metallic and all the lettering in black!!! I then added black American Classic seat-post and water bottle cages to add to the stealth look. It has a mish mosh of 7-speed Ultegra downtube shifters and 105 componentry on it and my tried and true Modolo Master SSC handlebars with a custom made Titamium stem. Also beautiful old Mavic hubs and Campy aero rims. Heavy-but have survived years of criteriums!!!!

Thats my pride and joy. My bike I always raced was a Trek 2400 carbon fiber and aluminum bike with Cinelli deep drop bars, custom made, but ugly tubular steel stem (All rusty now). Again a mish mosh of 8-sp Ultegra STI and Dura-Ace. Circa 1990!! It was not a pretty bike-but it got the job done. That bike has thousands of racing miles and 10,000 of training miles on it. I'd love to sell the frame set-but cannot seem to to do it-sentimental I guess. :)

Nice bike. Better watch out though... all the Campy Purists are going to come down on you for mixing Campy wheelsets with Shimano drivetrain. :D

BTW, that seems to be quite a steep down-pitch on that saddle... or is it an optical illusion?

Seems like an invite for me to rejoin the world of :)

Hey! Are those the 100th. Anniversary TdF Special Edition Ksyrium SSC SL wheels you have there?

John Ryder 07-22-03 05:44 PM

Yes, they are. Very Smooth there is a difference between these and the normal SL's. I sold my old Ksyrium SL's when these came in. I got # 2024 out of 5000. :)
