Bike Pics!

Recommended Posts

just added a new friend to the ranks, so here goes it.

old jerk univega, fits me perfectly (55cm), bought for $60, and i've already put a decent chunk into it for new tires, drivetrain, brake and shifter cables, brake shoes, and grips. next of the list is a new seat, something a little more modern.

first impression, what a piece of crap (covered in cobwebs with a good bit of rust). now, what a fast ride!

more pics,

Are those BB-7 calipers on the Iron Horse? They work well.

I have had Oury grips (blue bike). Very cushy. I'm partial to Salsa grips, too.

I used to ride Oury's. Now I ride nothing but Salsa's. The Salsa's are just so much more streamlined.

I have about 7 frames and 4 bikes currently built but here is my curb crushing urban beast.

Those cables are soooo long! Wrap 'em under the bar tape when you replace them so it looks cleaner. Looks amazing for $60.

it's having a slight headshake which just means i need to retrue the wheel because it is stressed out now.

I concur. And the new Specialized grips are great, too. I went to the Specialized dealer demo day at Patapsco and rode the 2008 carbon fiber Stumpjumper S-Works and the newest SX Trail. 1.5 hours on each, and you can guess which one was the fastest, while the other was unreal on the rocks (and gave me the hardest workout).

Somebody in SF had there's parked outside my favorite bakery and I was oggling it for 15 minutes. My friend dragged me away from it. I wish I had that kind of cash :(

a bit of a different breed than we've already seen here, this is my urban assault/dirt jump/daily beat around rig. its a 2005 Giant STP3 with a marzocchi dirt jumper fork, sunn rhyno lite wheels, race face prodigy dh cranks, dmr tension seeker, kenda k-rad tires, hayes mechanical discs and some other BS thrown in for good measure.

My new bike, just picked her up this weekend. Carbon fiber Trek OCLV 9800, Rock Shox SID, Shimano wheels and gears. I got it at the flea market and I don't really know much about it, just that its alot nicer than my previous Wal-Mart GT.

The best part is it was only 200.

It's hard to trust the flea market over here because so many stolen bikes and parts end up there. My selle italia was just stolen and there's no doubt in my mind that it ended up there. Gotta be careful with what you're buying and who's selling it.

Nice to see a lot of nice bikes on here. :)

Here are mine. The latest edition is this orange Gunnar Roadie frame. I am currently selling the orbea, and swapped all the parts over to the Gunnar.

Orbea stripped

Gunnar Roadie: (still undergoing stem position testing)

I also have a Gunnar cyclocross bike:

..And a lot of you already know the Bridgestone:

Not pictured are a MASI Gran Corsa frame, my second road bike I purchased back in the day, which still has to get both seatstays replaced and paint/decal work, and a DeRosa Giro D'Italia which I gave to my father to ride.

..And in case you guys can't tell, I'm a big fan of steel frames. :)

I thought you loved the ride of the orbea even though it was aluminum? How much do you want for the frame?

That gunnar looks beautiful!

I wish I could afford that right now :(

On the bright side, I'm looking at a Mongoose FS1 frame for 15 bucks :D Also, my friends dad used to ride track but quit and has a couple frames just lying around. I believe they are mi size as well! Might pick those up for a reasonable price. Might be your size too Rod <nudge nudge hint hint>
