Nice bike erin :wink: 8)

When you are feeling richer, and the inevitable upgradeitis sets in, upgrade the wheels and you will love it even more!

I have a set of those and they are currently in their most effective position....... Hanging on the shed wall :P

My new Baby,purchased today.
Trek Madone 5.9
Durace groupset,except cassette and shifters.
Duotrap integrated in frame for Garmin
internally routed cabling
carbon cages etc etc.
I am one very happy camper, especially for the price.Saved up for it,it's a 2011 model.
Funnily enough it's nearly the same colour scheme as my Trek 1.9 aluminium roady, which now gets relegated to the second bike lol.
anyhow here she is

Thought I might stick up a fresh photo of the Felt. Been riding it pretty hard, and the wheels only needed a slight true at the first service. They'll still get replaced with some DA C24's early next year but they're not bad for stock wheels. Do need a bigger saddle bag though, the small clip-in Fizik bag is a tad tiny if you want to stash some CO2 cannisters, an inflator, tubes, multitool, phone and cards/cash. It's good for short rides though, and was only $15.

I should also point out that matte black paint is only for the obsessive-compulsive. I clean my rides religiously, but this even more so.

Nice camera work. Looks a great contrast against the 'weathered'board! As previously mentioned on this thread, there are some great photographers out there. Then again, if the subject looks as cool as that, it's not hard to put in some extra effort.

I'm in love........ and she's an Italian.......... 8)

I built this Colnago C50 frame up from scratch with assistance from my former LBS guy - the learning experience was great - every "gear head" should build up a bike from scratch at least once............ the build was half the fun of buying this new bike.

2010 Colnago C50 Strada size 52 sloping frameset in AM00 paint scheme (a now discontinued frame set)
2009 Campagnolo Eurus wheelset
Schwalbe Ultremo R.1 700 23c clinchers
2011 Campagnolo Record 11 speed group set from previous ride
Selle SMP Glider Saddle from previous ride
Chris King Sotto Voce threadless headset (black)
2010 Oval Concepts R910 Aergo handlebar and R900 70mm head stem from previous ride

Not the most lithe creature at 7.41kg but oh so comfortable to ride....... :D

The C50's diamond shaped HP (High Power in Colnago speak) chainstays are said to be engineered to absorb more road vibration (vertical compliance), particularly ultra high frequency vibrations associated with rough surfaced chip seal type roads whilst offering all of the ridgity of a conventional single tube chain stay.

It's clearly debatable as to wether these unique diamond shaped tubes work any better, however as I was purchasing this frame at the very end of it's long and successful production life and there was no bad press anywhere to be heard / read on the diamond shaped chainstays - I was never deterred from going with them.

What I can report though, from my own finely tuned seat of the pants feel is that the C50 frame despite being 180 grams heavier than the 2010 TCR 1 frame I used to ride is indeed much better at absorbing the road buzz - the ride feels a lot more......... 'plush' for the want of another descriptor.

I've got to say there are a whole lot of bikes making me jealous in this thread... :roll:

...but apart from that, some of the photography is superb! I expect I'l be returning to this thread quite regularly. :)

first road bike

Postby jheeno » Sun Oct 23, 2011 7:52 pm

after a month of test riding ... I was nearly convinced I'd buy a giant ... then the next decision was TCR or DEFY ?

then I test rode and then purchased (almost out of impulse)
this bike

Image

Trek Madone 4.5

very nice

nice machines - that TT bike looks a bit special. well time for some "real" bike pics :mrgreen:

this is my commuter/MTB bike. after 8 years of service, i couldn't remove the BB from the frame so i bought a new one.

with the new cranks installed:
Image
had to chop the forks steerer when swapping them onto the new frame, with a shorter head tube. also added some Clarks S2 rear disc brakes:
Image
almost all together now. in case you're wondering, no, the lady of the house doesn't approve of my bike parts warehouse:

Really nice. Have to love those Felt Tri/TT bikes—the aero frame is really something else.

Got off the bike after the test ride and just wanted to go again, harder?

You got the right one. :D
