I concur. After going out for the first time with bibs and a jersey on Monday, I now understand the reason for cycling specific clothing.

Yaesu VX-7R portable ham radio. I was one of the last motor refs in MABRA to not have his own radio.

I really like Marinoni bicycles! Please tell us a little about this one. What group, bar, how much it weighs etc.. Does Mr. Marinoni still hand sign each bike? What computer are you looking for?

My wife got me these Williams 58 Carbon Tubulars for my retirement. Can't wait to race on them when they come in June.


WORLD CLASS - Aerodynamics, lightweight.

This wheel system is ideal for long solo breaks and time trials where efficiency
and ultimate sustainable top end speed are paramount.

This deep section wheelset can also offer amazing dominance across
the full spectrum of racing applications. 200 pound rider weight limit.
Hybrid Ceramic Bearings are standard.

do you jest? get outta here.

michelito 05-20-09 05:52 PM

Marinoni Piuma Ti complete specs:
Custom 3/2.5 grade 9 Titanium frame
Campy Super Record gruppo
Compact cranks 50-34 / 12-25 cassette
FSA K-Force shallow drop handlebars / OS-99 CSI stem / K-Force Light seatpost
Sella Italia SLR gelflow saddle
Look Keo Ti pedals
Campy Shamaml Ultra 2 way-fit wheels with Hutchinson Fusion 2 tubeless tires...

It weighs 15.5 pounds, which I was pleasantly surprised with, as I was expecting around 17, 17.5!

Insurance paid for most of it because of another bike that was stolen last year... so I went a bit nuts with the components, and i LOVE it :love:

The ride is just incredible - don't know if it's more an attribute of the Ti frame ro the tubeless wheels/tires, but the combination is simply stunning! I'm taking it over to Tuscany for a trip this summer and just can't wait to try on the greats roads over there :D

michelito 05-20-09 05:57 PM

Oh and as far as computers go, since I'M going to Tuscany and will be traveling on unknown roads a bit, I was thinking about a Garmin 705, but I have to admit it's getting expensive. Might just have to grab an additional speed sensor for the Polar CS200 I have on the other bike... just need to find where to but the stuff at a reasonable price.
