I used to knock around on an old 2nd hand Olmo. Sadly I have no pics. So I set out to build a nicer bike and bought all the bits, then got this frameset from Cecil Walker for $150. Someone had ordered it and never picked it up. Collected dust for many years in their store room.
Image
Paconi Columbus tubing. Mavic Ksyrium Elites (1st gen) and Campag Centaur Century Grey 10sp.

Sadly a Hyundai ended the life of this bike, but her insurance piad for this.
Image
First upgrade, to a Chorus front mech (much better quality than the Cent one)

Well, this frame cracked just behind the bottom bracket (chain stay) so look replaced it with this. Very nice of them.
Image
I in turn upgraded everything but the cranks to Chorus 10sp. Ritchey WCS carbon bars and Ritchey WCS saddle (very under-rated saddle)

The old group just happenned to bolt nicely to this... a 1989 Le Kypo Reynolds frame I scored for the best price - free.
Image
note the Centaur UT cranks... I couldn't be bothered stuffing around with the BB on the look etc.
Got a 2nd hand Ksyrium Elite rear wheel and pinched the Aksium front wheel from my wifes bike.

Along the way I also scored this freebie (ref hard rubbish/tip finds thread in the retro cycling area) and added some brooks, new levers and cables etc.
Image
This one's a bit small for me, so it's currently for sale.

My Specialized Allez 2008 model arrived this morning. Threw on the second hand pedals I got from a mate, shoes and cleats also arrived this morning from Wiggle... :D

Image

Took it for a burn down to the wife's work which is 3km away and noticed a MASSIVE difference between this and my old steel demon. Only problem is I can't stop coughing now.. the cold air screwed up my chest!!!

All in all, it was packed perfectly by Durban Cycles in Sutherland (many thanks!) and Greyhound shipped it up overnight from Syd. Put it together in about 30 mins. The packaging was that professional it looked like it had just come out of the box for the first time.

Will just need to tinker a little now to get things spot on.

I've just finished upgrading my TCR so I can hand my old parts down for a new bike I am building for my son (pics to follow). I'm chuffed with the way it has turned out and how easy the rebuild was.

Changes made are:

Shimano 6700 groupset
Shimano 6700 pedals
Shimano 6700 wheelset
Hutchinson Fusion 3 tubeless tyres with NoTubes sealant
Selle Italia SLR XP saddle
Specialized Roubaix bar tape

Image

Now I just need to wait for the weather to improve so I can ride it... heaven forbid I get the new parts wet :-)

Sweet bike man!

I recently bought my first road bike, the 2011 TCR Composite 1 which you can see on page 109 here http://www.bicycles.net.au/forums/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=8664&start=2700. Which model TCR is this one? They are a great bike, so smooth!

How do tubeless tires fair up against tubed ones?? would they puncture easier? whats the advantage? Can you just plug them like you do with a normal tubeless car tire when you get a puncture?

Finally got my insurance replacement bike, but due to getting less then original value of my bike + accessories replaced I decided to get a cash settlement and import a bike from the US (Competitve Cyclist). The 2010 model has nicer paint scheme than my previous 2009 Racemaster.

Image

Brakes are SRAM Force (saves $100). Rest is Red. Too wet to ride it today :(

Am planning on ordering some wheels from TWE shortly once I get a bit more cash from parts sales from my old bikes.

The whole point of running tubeless is that you fill the tyre with a sealant so when it does get a small-medium puncture the seals back up by itself and you don't have to stop riding

They are supposed to have less rolling resistance too. I don't think their puncture resistance is any different apart from the fact that you can run sealant in them and that is pretty effective.

To patch them I believe you just put a conventional patch on the inside, however if they have sealant in them (and it fails to seal) I guess you'd have to clean that off before parching and if its a big hole or tear you need a boot.

Their principal disadvantage is that they are difficult to mount and remove.

I have a set but I haven't given them a good run yet.

As with any tyre, puncture resistance and longevity depend on which one you buy, but Cruiserman has put 1000k's on his Intensives and hasn't had a puncture. Having a look at them last night there was a reasonable cut in the tyre we could see 2 little spots of sealant in, but clearly it was doing it's job. That's the point of the system, trying to avoid the small punctures caused by chips of glass and thorns. You can't pinch flat either, and because of this you can use tyre levers

Sexy looking bike. Yeah - it sucks that its raining all the time - I want to ride my baby too. Keeping it clean might be a bit annoying with the white if you're anal about it. I am - going to invest in a set of baby wipes to clean the drive train everytime I take her out...

Thank you. :-)

Only thing now is for me to become a pedallist worthy of such a steed.
