I just finished fixing up this, which had been beaten up a little by its former owner.

I had concerns on stiffness when I bought the Easton EA90 SLX wheels but I can say they are quite stiff when climbing and sprinting I don’t notice any flex for reference I weigh 163 lbs.
They are the new Gen 4 hubs and they spin great my rear wheel weight was 839.2 and the front 603.9 grams.

Thanks. Would you believe I got it for $60? It needed a few parts and a lot of work to make it functional again, and it could still use a new rear hub and middle chainring.

New 2010 Co-Motion Nor'wester Tour for commuting and touring. Still working on getting it set up.

New, to me, 2004 Serotta Ottrott for everything else. New bar and stem are on order.

New bike on it's inaugural ride, it rocks everything about it rocks.

And I found Gary Fisher's 1978 Bicycling Magazine article, describing his tour of the then-new Trek frame plant. Is is on the "Documents" page of the same site.

Here is its twin.

Here is my custom steel DeSalvo. I have had it for about a year and a half and am very happy with it. Recent changes include OnOne Midge bars and Rivendell/Nitto Mark's Rack (which will hold an Acorn Boxy Rando Bag). I am highly considering getting rid of my Shimano bifters and using traditional brake levers and using bar end shifters.

Pictures were taken on a 140 mile ride from Pasadena to Laguna and back via SGRT and PCH.

Fresh paint, Rotor chainrings, and Veloflex Pave's.

^^ Nice & clean. How are the Q-rings? Do you notice any difference v. traditionally round rings?

I noticed the Rotors for about three minutes and never really gave them much thought after that. I seem to gain about 3-5kph and about 1/2 a gear. This could be placebo effect or it could be me pushing harder because I think I can. I haven't gone up 39/E. Fork with them yet, I think a good long climb will be a better test ground.

Here is a pic of the Litespeed Liege that I own. It is a 1999 Litespeed Liege, bought on ebay 5 years ago..

Two more bikes since my last entry. My commuter with old Look P76 pedals, (recently upgraded to Brooks saddle and dogbed for canine comfort):

And my recent acquisition, a 1986 Schwinn Peloton 25-inch frame which I'm building up with white stem, bars, seat, and a mix of Sante & Dura-Ace 7800 components:

I've been looking for this Schwinn frame for more than 3 years. It was my first 'real' bike when I was a pimply-faced USCF junior and speedo-clad triathlete.
