Pictures of your Bike

by Raleigh   May 30, 2012  

So, I figured that no bicycle forum would be complete without pictures of bikes! Post your photos here, no bike will be refused: Road TT Triathlon Cyclocross MTB BMX Shixie Fixie And anything else! Lovely bikes lovely, but everyday bikes interesting too. I won't post first, but I'm taking pictures right now. Smile I wanna see what bikes you're all riding!

I realise position is a very individual thing (ie comfort and saddle tilt-related issues) but it seems that your saddle is quite far back for a TT position, no? It closes the hip angle and reduces the power you can put down, sort-of handicapping your main power-generating muscles. Also, if you have no flexibility issues, you can really benefit from a lower or more stretched-out position on the front end, provided elbows are not too far off 90deg. Basically, there are mountains of 'free speed' to be gained by experimenting with position. Yours might already be optimal for you, I'm not a bike fitter, but just suggesting shifting saddle forward and dropping the stem lower if you haven't tried it already.

Thanks for the tip Michael. I have been bike fitted so the stem & handlebars I will leave as is but Yes maybe the saddle has crept forward since my fitting. I will double check with the bike fitter.

thanks for being so observant.

Here is my beloved Bianchi Sempre Pro Ultegra

I have recently upgraded the cockpit to all Fizik cyrano R1 and R3 mix. Ride has always been amazing.

Handlebars - Fizik cyrano R3 42mm chameleon
Stem - Fizik Cyrano R1 90mm 9°
Seatpost - Fizik Cyrano R1
Saddle - Anteres R3 carbon braided rail
Wheels - Veltec Speed 6.0 tubular 1310g
Groupset - Ultegra 53/39 front 11-25 rear (soon to be Sram Red 11)
Brakes are still original Reparto Corse but will change when I get the Sram.

Meet Ruby, my beautiful Giant Bowery 72, 2009 model. She's light as a Malteser and the saddle is more comfy than my sofa!

The summer ride. 1999 Competition AD10 paint and Gilco Columbus tubing. record ti gruppo. The shamal 12 spoke HPW is very rare so I collected a pair of '96 Atlanta Shamals but just mounted up a Fulcrum racing 5 set for training.

My best bike, a Pegoretti Mxxxxxo I've nicknamed Il Super Laterale.

The paint is custom; I asked Dario to listen to Soundgarden's Superunknown album and Tool's Lateralus, then paint whatever he wanted.

He also added a question to the chainstay. What does an Aussie do in Seattle? Good question.

The groupset is Super Record, with 3T components. Wheels are custom; DT240s laced to Easton SLX90 rims with FMB Competition tubulars.

By some margin this is the best bike I've ridden. It goes as good as it looks; I've podiumed several races. Steel is very much real.

Wow, that is something else. Can't believe you race it though, if it got scratched I'd cry. In fact, I'd cry if yours got scratched, I'd beheartbroken if it was mine! Any chance of some more close ups of the paintwork?

Last night I would have considered trading a very loud baby for a really nice bike.

That is the best idea behind a paint job. Ever. Fact.

Here is my current only bike, a Halfords Carrera Crossfire 2 Hybrid bike, a moderate bike for my introduction to cycling again at the age of 39, leaving me looking for a faster better lighter bike!!! It is modelled with a pint of Kronenbourg as this is the perfect cycling refreshment!

My lovely Cinelli Gazetta. It's had a facelift since last appearance here; new handbuilt wheels (mavic open sport rims, hope hubs), new forks (Columbus Tusk light), new stem & seat post. It makes an already enjoyable bike more fast and comfortable.

My Shiny new Roubaix, replacing my two month old Hybrid, I am astonished at the difference the bike makes, in terms of speed, manoeuverability, agility etc. Also the workout you get, I never envisaged the demands a road bike makes on your body compared to a straight bar hybrid! Very pleased!

I have a slightly older (2012) version, also in stealth black, which makes it look very classy. Absolutely lovely bike - you'll really enjoy it.
