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

A Little New Years Eve Bike Pjorn

I finished my annual winter rebuild a few days ago, and I have been unable to ride due to weather and tendonitis in my achilles. So here I sit with a pristine bike, watching my team get their ***** kicked in the bowl game, so I took the bike down the street to check my derailleur adjustment, and then took some pics. Enjoy!







The rig:

Storck Scenario C1.1 frameset w/ Stilleto Aero fork
Dura Ace 7700 group w/ R700 compact crank
Thomson post and stem
Easton EA 70 OS bars
Fizik Arione saddle
Deda Tape
Mike Garcia Speedcific DT Swiss 1.1 Wheelset
Conti GP 4000 tires
Keo carbon pedals
Profile Design carbon cages
Conti waterbottles from PBK (they are great - won't leak at all)

Weight as shown: 18.0 lb w/ all but fluids
Weight no saddle bag or bottles: 17.2 lb

I plan to do a metric tomorrow, but I may bail early if I have excessive pain.

Nice. I'm going with white bar tape on my next build.

I envy those who live in warm climates and can ride thier road bikes year round.

It is actually a grey, but the setting sun makes it look white in the pic. The grey matches the frame graphics perfectly in normal lighting (for a few rides at least).

It's not all it's cracked up to be. It is 75 outside and my ass is firmly planted on the couch watching bowl games and drinking beer. I will get in 80 minutes on the trainer though.

This is near the top of a local climb - 1,000 feet or so. Trump golf course down below. I live around the final bend on the right.

and why should he have those cranks other than you put them on your X bike and it was a huge mistake?

Noticed you are looking for 135mm spaced wheels now. Should have started with a budget of $3k and built the bike right the first time.

Oh wait...it was built right the first time for 1/2 the price.

Some of us remember when stronglight didn't make crap.

I never understand why people run spacer ABOVE the stem. Man...that's going to hurt in a wreck.

If you want to run the bars that height, fine but at least clean it up and trim off the stem so 20MM + of spacer aren't above the stem. The starnut tool to smake the starnut down further, a hack saw and a guide only costs around $30 total.

Geez, how can you find time to ride, watch bowl games, drink beer, and afford a place there? Are you the real W?

Congrats on the view!

I do it for resale, even though I dont really intend to sell it ever.
