That is sexy, Timk.

How about a baller bike rack?

Taiwaarello FTW. Looks like Campy shifting and Enve 4.0 so that's what, a $11k bike?

No idea. But I pulled that picture off of prime, so I wouldn't doubt it.

Here's my latest creation; early 90s Cannondale R800 with a long list of amazing Craigslist and eBay deals. Just finished this up a month ago or so, still less than 100 miles on it.



DuraAce 7700 9spd brifters, cassette, rear der
Ultegra 6700 crank
105 5500 brakes and front der
3t ergo aluminum bar and stem
Kestrel carbon threadless fork
Neuvation M28x Aero wheelset

pic shows the stock Cdale post and Selle Italia Turbo saddle but those have since been replaced with a 3t Dorico carbon post and 2013 OEM Velo Cannondale take-off saddle.


I also have a 2011 Giant XTC 29er with just an Easton riser bar, bashguard, grips and pedals.



Last but not least I have a 58 Schwinn Corvette that was my grandpa's, then father's, now mine, that I am restoring/restomodding/whatever. I'll probably never get rid of this thing so I dont care what the M.netters say

I have been talking trash about buying a road bike for months. I just can't bring myself to drop several hundred dollars on a bike to find out if I like it.

That's funny. My hotel is hosting the San Diego part of the California Amgen tour right now. They're out on the first race at this very moment.

This is my DD bike. Although I can't compete with a third-generation family bike, I did buy this from the original owner, who told me he bought it at age 11 with his Confirmation money. I even have the (pristine) original string tags.

1959 Rollfast. I replaced the forks, bars, pedals, wheels, and recovered the seat, but I of course still have all the original parts. Had been in a shed for 30+ years when I got it, was a rusty basket case.

I think this was hustlers bike in another thread a couple years ago.

You live in Alabama, you won't like it.

A few years ago I bought my 5th grade dream bike - a 1989 GT Performer. I found it on Craigslist for $300; dude also included an old school Diamond Back.

I had a Vertigo for my brief foray into mini-ramp BMX.

1" Kestrel EMS Pro, steel threadless steerer, ~530g according to the interwebs. I also have a Nashbar 1" carbon threaded steel steerer fork and it was a noodle compared to this Kestrel.

I need a 1" threaded steerer and that's hard to find on a carbon MTB/hybrid fork. I want to make this for my beer bike.

My ride (note the mud is not from mountain bike trails)


Bought it new in spring of '04 using some REI awesome coupon and saleness for $400-450, I don't remember exactly. Since then I've gone through a couple sets of tires, some chains, couple chain rings, brake pads, and a **** ton of tubes. Installed the clipless pedals 2 years ago and other than that it's still stock. Road a bike with a non-shitty-low-end fork last year and I've resisted the urge to upgrade until now. Armed with a 20% off coupon and dividend I'm gonna order up a RockShox Recon Silver this weekend - sub $200 for an air fork sounds pretty fantastic to me. Should be quite the upgrade.

I'll be the first to embarrass myself and post a video of me huffing and puffing around the trails of Indian Camp Creek Park in St Charles, MO on Sunday. The creek bottom trails (very fun) are still closed from all the rain so I started out on a different section and basically road most of it backwards, got lost a few times and had to turn around and I even included a walk of shame back up a hill I really didn't want to ride back up. I was pissed at myself for being so lazy soon as I did it.
