Sick Spec'd!
I'm about due for a roadie upgrade, my TCR is a miserable ride. Worst buzz ever, carpal tunnel syndrome garunteed.
Probably trail bike upgrade will take priority however.

What's the story on the '10 Tour?

Thanks man! It's a great bike. I went to France for the 10 Tour just to go see it and ride some of the stages. The roads are amazing there!

My (new to me) 2009 Gary Fisher ARC Super.


I previously rode a 1989 Cannondale ST600. The Gary Fisher weighs 10 pounds less! It makes it a lot easier going up hills!

I ride a DBR that my uncle gave me after a guy who works for him rode cross-country on it. Nice bike, I try to ride as often as possible but there aren't too many good roads around me. Pic somewhat related.

1st road ride of the season yesterday. Did 24 miles in 1:15 which is about 19mph (iirc) and was very pleased with considering the amount of wind I fought and being a solo effort.

I had thought about it, but I just can't see how it would help me that much. I'm actually content with the 105 componentry, but I figured I would step up with my next bike because I want to start racing. But, on another note, they don't have any of the CAAD 10 bikes in my size left in stock, so I had to go another route. It worked out though, because with a little convincing I was able to talk my fiancee' into letting me get this...

This is the bike I REALLY wanted

My first true road bike. Frameset is only original part, I had to respec the rest. Bike weighed 21.5 new and 17 after I was done & I only did what was reasonably priced with significant weight loss over original spec for an aluminum frame bike. It's hardly the lightest or highest tech or priciest but for a jump in point it turned out OK for me. Only thing different in the pic would be that it now has egg beater pedals. Yes, mt bike clip-ins but oh well...........probably going back with black hoods. This is "red stripe"



Single speed cafe racer urban assault vehicle.........."clown bike"



20 yr old fat tire touring bike...........This one never really got a name, guess it could go by "old bike"



Overall, 5 pavement oriented bikes & 8 dirt oriented

VVVVVVVVVVVV paddle, pedal....it's all good

IIRC, USE-1 carbon aero.......very light, especially compared to the carbon wrapped one that came on the road bike. I actually swapped it from the clown bike to the road bike and put the wrapped one on the clown bike, which also has lime green oury's and a lime green kmc chain now.

Very nice looking ride. Dig on the color scheme how it goes with the sram red stuff.



On a seperate but kinda relevant note...I need to post up some pics of my Electra Jeremy that has Nexus 7spd internal gear coaster brake hub, Nexus front generator hub with 3 watt light, sealed crank bearings, etc.........It is a "road" bike but is more like cruising a recliner down the street, lol.
