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

The road bike collection, 3 out of 4 isn't bad, and got to have something for those extra lively rides, or when the weather is crap.



Ignore the in-process painting in the room. And rest assured all bikes are removed when painting is in process!

1986 Serotta Nova (originally Super Record equipped).
Now running a mix of Campagnolo Record / Chorus / Centaur. New wheels have been added since that photo, those wheels now live on my Gazelle AB-Frame which is also running Campy 10sp group these days.
I´m stunned. But the Gazelle makes me coming back. True peep-show!

My DeBernardi Zona. These pictures are a few years old but the bike hasn't changed much. I flipped the stem, changed the tires, and threw some Ultegra pedals on it. The comp is also different now. I'd love to overhaul it with full Ultegra or Chorus (most likely the former), but it rides great as is. Maybe if I get around to it I'll take some new pics up against a white basement wall (I don't have a garage).

My latest steel! Not especially classic or vintage (yet) but hard to come by. The last serial made roadbike made by Monark. 1999 with campa Avanti-group, Rigida rims, ITM stem and Selle Italia team-saddle. This model came in a limited edition: new owners wanted "brothers-in-arms" Crescent to spearhead the race market. ANYONE WITH THE KNOWHOW - please enlarge the pic!

I just found out about this thread. There's a whole lot more steel over in C&V than you can shake a whole box of sticks at.

I have several:

1954 Hetchins, Magnum Opus
1970 Raleigh Professional
1972 Fuji Finest
1973 Raleigh Competition (still a project)
1976 Raleigh Team Professional
1978 Raleigh Super Course
1984 Trek 760
2000 Bob Jackson Arrowhead

Just got the Arrowhead the other day:







This Fuji is my distance bike:



The Hetchins:



The Raleigh Team Pro (fixed for now):



Professional:



Super Course - Urban assault roadie:



The Trek 760 - hot rodded:



Do we get membership cards or something?

Just rescued three Tange 1 steel Centurions from the trash pile, two are goers, one a fixer, can you believe it? Now I have six steel bikes. No cf and two aluminum. Carbon fiber is a fad, sooner or later when they people get tired of them cracking and breaking they will come home to the real deal, steel.
