open topic, for anything cycling related.
I have finally upgraded from my flatbar to a roadie. It looks like southern Adelaide is turning into a TCR zone & SeanB beat me to it yesterday
All I need now is install my Garmin and wait for the weather to clear so I can ride without getting my new pride and joy wet & dirty
It's the Mid Season TCR 1 alloy model (carbon forks & seatpost) with full 105 groupset that was released as a limited run to test the market. I was luck enough to get one of the few left in my size.
Well here's another Giant.
And here's my new Mongoose. Soon going to transform into a Cyclocross Bike.
2011 Giant TCR Advanced 2
2010 Giant Defy 3(CX)
Wayne Roberts Pursuit Commuter
My bike stable is growing... and growing... I am only adding the bikes as they are ridable, there are 3 more in the works at the moment - parts are taking for ever to get here from Ebay and the UK!
The new addition
1990(ish) Giant Perigee 7 speed shimano with Araya 700c wheelset - its my old Tri bike from back in the day. Had it sent over from WA to the Gold coast. Given her a tidy up, service and gotten ride of some junk that didnt need to be on there (it had wheel reflectors and front and rear reflectors... WT? was I thinking back then?) stripped the aero bars off it and kept her simple and clean - she will now be my commute to work bike. Ahhhh loving the feel of old steel frames!
I bought the missus a beach cruiser from Velogear.com.au for mothers day and picked up a good weeride baby seat from Ebay near new. Its a start and I'm hoping it gets her hooked on this cycling game aswell.
I have to ride early in the morning, before my brain figures out what I'm doing...
Punish The Pedals
My destroyed 07 Apollo Evolution
Bent forks and the fact that i have out grown my Apollo has lead my parents(dad) into getting me a new bike
2010 Specialized P1 AM
Chrome/Gold (considered limited edition) DMR v12 Pedals. Wiggle is selling these as the same price as the standard colours. While CRC is charging about $5 more over the standard
My new Pinarello FP7, Chorus 11 speed, Fulcrum RS Cranks...
Fulcrum Racing 3's on the way along with 3T ARX Team stem, ErgoSum Team bars, 3T seatpost, Selle Italia SLR Cabon saddle, Carbon bottle cages & a few other little bits and pieces.
I'll take a few more photos once it's complete.
Some recent changes to my R3 since I got the warranty replacement frame. Put some classic bend alloy 3T Rotundo bars on. Love them. Also picked up a FSA seatpost with setback.
Canyon Ultimate AL
This is my ride...
2007 Avanti Blade Sport with the following upgrades;
- Syntace Aero Bars
- Shimano PDR-540 Pedals
- Ritchey Pro Seat Post
- Carbon Titanium Saddle (off eBay which has neither Carbon nor Titanium! )
- Michelin Speedium2 700x23 Tyres
- BBB Saddle Bag
- Bottle, Pump, Lights
This bike has been great over the last 2Â½ years as a first step to road cycling. Does the job for now, but I am getting a bit tired of the 3x8 gearing and would like a proper road bike soon!
Bianchi Sempre Chorus 11 project completed!
Avanti Blade Sport for not so sunny days
2010 Cervelo S2 Ultegra
2010 Cervelo R3 SRAM
This is my first bike - didn't (thankfully) have a clue about all the other drool-worthy and much more expensive bikes out there when I first got it. Just picked it out from the shop. I've changed a few bits and pieces to it, still a bit suss about the red tyres but can't be bothered not too happy about spending more money to change it. Very happy with it otherwise !
2010 Cervelo S2 Ultegra
2010 Cervelo R3 SRAM
My new commuter, and first ever build - just finished putting together this evening; managed a quick 'round the bloc' and am very happy
Surly Cross Check, 105 Group with Short6 canti brakes and Easton Circuit wheels

Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
Ok, so fitted the new parts this evening... Fulcrum Racing 3's with GP4000S tyres, Look Keo 2 Carbon pedals, 3T ARX Team stem, 3T Ergosum Team bars, Fizik tape, 3T Dorico seat post, Selle Italia SLR Fibra saddle. Also fitted a complete new set of Campy gear and brake cables.
Still gotta play around with seat height and stem/bar height, etc.
Please disregard upside down cage as I have to re drill them so they actually fit.
^ Excuse my drool, looks magnificent Michael.
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.
