Very nice Shaun. 8)

If you'll pardon my poor manners (for a true gentleman would never ask this of a lady), what size is she?

Thanks RK :D
She's a 57 both ways, a little too tall for ideal but I'll take the TT length as close enough to perfect thanks 8)

Looks great. I love drop bar MTB's with rigid forks and 26"wheels 8)

Needs a dirt drop stem to get those handlebars up a bit higher so you can hit the log and ledge drops on the singletrack. :twisted:

Sorry about the dodgy photo (and weeding) , but will try and and get a better one when the weather clears and there is some sunshine.

Anyway, Trek 2013 Madone 5 series (56 cm / H2 fit) with DA 11 Speed Di2 and DA C35's.

My first and current roadie. 2010 Malvern Star Oppy C6. The carbon clinchers are CoreCarbon 38s, build by Dan of Shifter Bikes. A few changes since this picture was taken - new saddle, stem, handlebars after a bike fit and black bottle cages. It looks mixed and match at the moment, hence the pre-changes picture. :)

Love those wheels. I'm generally not a carbon wheel fan but those look great. How do they ride? I've never heard of that brand before i saw your post.


Hi Booge,

Sorry for the late reply. The wheels are great - stiffer yet more comfortable than the Ksyriums that came with the bike. Crosswinds - not really an issue. I've only had one or two gusts of wind that's unsettled me in nearly 9 months of ownership. Braking is pretty good. They don't bite as quick as alloys, but I managed to lock my rear wheel up three weeks ago - completely shredded the Schwalbe Ultremo DD tyre. It was either that or get T-boned and land in the tray of a ute.

Spot on, Brooks Swallow in the dark brown with matching bar tape. I'm a black/black type and would never pick brown by myself but it really works well against the green frame.
Now I've gotta find some appropriate toe clips to go with the MKS Road pedals...

26, I'll probably swap to something a little thinner when they were out as clearance isn't great.
