Here is my ride. Trek 2.3 with Spinergy wheels and FSA bars.

My '86 Schwinn Pelotwins. One's a 24-inch with a triple chainring and Dura Ace 7850-C24 wheels, the other is a 25-inch with dual chainring and the wheels I built myself for the bike. (The wheels with white rims.)

My bike is nothing special. Gotta include some scenery to make up for that.

Looks like So.Cal? Let's make a guess, Huntington Bch? I haven't been to HB in years.......

Here's my '05 Trek 1000:

This was the first bike I bought when I got back into road cycling in '05. In '08 or so I got myself a new bike and sold this. The guy who bought it gave it to someone else when he bought a new bike, who gave it back to me when they bought a new bike. How could I not rebuild it and ride it? :)

You probably should post a picture of the finished build, no? Without other bikes in the background, too.

Here ye go Zip.

The Scott Drop-Ins were too flexy for my liking, so I went back to the original 3TTT Ergonova's. Seriously loving this bike!

Wanted to update for the local thread. My Tarmac SL2 has been gifted to my nephew, minus the Quarq, which I recently sold.

New bike.
S-Works SL3, Saxo Bank team edition. S-Works standard crankset with spesh branded Quarq powermeter
3T Ergonova handlebars, 3T Arx stem
3T Dorico seat post
Fizik Antares braided saddle
Speedplay Zeroes
Mavic Ksyrium SL wheels, Conti GP4000s
DA 9000

I was very close to going with "new Red" for this build, thinking that I'd have to add the cost of a new, 11-speed wheelset. Thankfully, My old Ksyriums (2008?) work just fine with the spacer removed.

For anyone setting up a DA 9000 front derailleur, take a minute to RTFM a couple of times re: the convertor guide usage, placement, etc. That thing had me scratching my head for a few minutes because I didn't see it in the packaging (it's clear plastic). Also, it's really easy to drop (and almost lose) the tiny metal "seat tube reinforcement plate", especially if you have big hands, like me. Luckily, it's ferrous and it was caught by my Quarq magnet.
S-Works crankset & Quarq powermeter

I'm still fine-tuning my position, and only have three rides on it, but I'll try to post a semi-detailed review after a few more miles. I will say that the S-Works chainrings handle the Shimano 11-speed chain & FD just fine- in case anyone was worrying about 10spd chainring compatibility with 11spd Shimano...

Just put this together over the weekend, the Motobecane Vent Noir frame and fork is replacing my old Trek 1000 frame which seems to have developed a crack near the bottom bracket shell:

Dunbar 05-25-13 12:30 AM

Sold my Trek FX to buy a townie bike with proper drop bars on it. Might have to christen it tomorrow morning and go get some good coffee.

My 1990 Specialized Sirrus that I found at the swap meet

my Fuji League
made me fall in love with steel again. It's got a db tubeset and nice lugs.
Light, responsive and comfortable. I take it with me everywhere.
