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

Even though its the same brakes and levers it feels much more crisp and tight on this bike. I had new cables put on my Ridley 2 months ago, but it didn't feel this good. Took it on my first ride today and I was impressed.

I have to ride with the cone spacer on for a little bit. gonna ride it in a couple different positions just to make sure before cutting the steering tube. For now, this is how she sits until I can afford to make some changes(Not in any particular order)
-seat post
-stem
-bars
-carbon cages
-cut the steering tube
-new crankset

photoshopped the steering tube off. that just ruins the picture!



This also photoshopped, but my order through a friend is in and it will look just like this...



Nobody has given you any love in here? Very nice job 10. Excellent presentation.

+1 I really like the paint scheme on this SS, and the Boyds match it very well.

updates:

- Switched out old SRAM Red FD for a 2012 Red FD (was really really easy to install, and works great for the first quick ride). Old Red FD was great when dialed-in, but could be finicky upon installation.




- went with the matching Ritchey Classic seatpost. The Thomson Masterpiece setback was a marvel of engineering but I like it better matching and like the 25mm of setback (compared to the 10mm of the Masterpiece).



- Ritchey Carbon Logic Curve Handlebars. Same curve as the Ritchey Classic Curve in Polished aluminum- but now add another level of comfort to an already very comfortable steel bike.

this

You need a shorter stem and/or flip it so it has some rise. Otherwise pimptastic.

I think it looks wierd due to the fact that I was so close with the camera, only had limited space so was almost fish eye and hence the perspective of the bars was off.

not sure on the shorter stem or flipped up comment, isnt flipping the stem up illegal here? ;-)

besides its comfy, i may drop another spacer

Oh, flipping it is indeed illegal here--I just don't care because I'm not hardcore.

It's just that your bars are turned WAY up, which points to a need to have the hoods a bit closer to you. In a perfect world, the bottoms of the bars are parallel to the ground, which would have you reaching far forward to rest on the hoods.

I'm not a fit nerd/fit expert, though. When I set my bike up, I kept the "cool kids" in mind when it came to bar position.

New changes - New chainrings and carbon spider. Only thing "left" are possibly new wheels. Don't really need them, but n+1 still applies.

Man I really like the paint scheme on that S-Works! Crank updates look fantastic. Those bottle cages are a bit scary though. Full carbon wheels would definitely put the icing on the cake. Hot.

I just think its the pic that makes them look strange, they aren't that turned up, you are probably right though, shorter stem prob the ticket

sorry its not bigger, you can see full size if you click on it.

It is a trek 1420 that I found in my ex girlfriends, grandmothers garage and gave it new life. It is a sweet frame that is bonded aluminum, it is very snappy and quite comfortable for aluminum. Took me a while to get used to the downtube shifters but they are pretty much maintenance free which is conveniente.

I have pieced it together for as little money as possible, I have probably put around 300 into it.

New tires, ea70 wing bars, new fizik bar tape, my old spd's, old Thompson elite offset seatpost, specialized saddle and stem from an allez that was stolen from me.

I recently changed the pads and chain which were the original from 1993 I believe.

What do you all think, I, quite happy with it myself. Im thinking of either a new carbon fork or sram ss break levers. Maybe a new rear wheel but other then that I love it,
