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!

It's the small bag, I carry two tubes, two levers and a multitool. Very tight but it does the job! Had no problem with the clip, works just fine.

Thanks. I might get the medium since I'd want to pack my phone in there too.

Hi All,
on my way back to a Colnago (eventually) here is my current steed.
Planet X Pro Carbon with nice Zondas, Conti GP4000s, Dura Ace 7900 kit (prefer the 105 sti's though), SM Carbon 'bit of a saddle' (surprisingly comfortable), Keo Carbons, and Polar Cad 200 - all up with bottle cage/pump bracket, a hair's weight over 16lb - very nice indeed.
My first PX, cracking on the hills, fast as you can pedal, 'solid' ride and looks cool too,,,,,,,, Still hanker after my Colly though.
Enjoy,
Trikeman. Wink

Winter bike, Canyon Ultimate AL 9.0, built up from the frame with my old Ultegra 6600 groupset. Syntace bars and slammed Syntace stem (practically the only stem that fits a 1 1/4 steerer). Crud RR2 guards.
Also used for commuting, and sometimes carries a light Tubus Fly rack and some small panniers.
Lovely bike, stiff as anything and with a compliant seatpost and forks.
That's in its latest guise with Shimano RS80-C24 wheels.
To be honest this bike gets much more use than the best bike!

Now with updated picture. Click to zoom.

Erm, mine is a (Chinese) Colnago M10, built a (it was featured by me on these very forum pages), Chinarillo a couple of years ago, rode 2500 happy miles on it, and re-sold the frame to a club mate.

So I then re-invested that cash on another Chinese "rip-off" frame from the same supplier as the Chinarillo, but this time I opted for a Colnago M10!!
I then invested a pile of cash into the build, this can then go onto what ever I get next, yes it will be a proper frame next time.....

Its got (real), Sram red group set, Far Sport 38mm carbon hoops, carbon XXX Bontrager stem and bar, 3T seat post, Shimano 105 carbon pedals, Fizik arione saddle and conti gp4000s tyres. It weighs in with pedals at 7Kg on the spot, Ive ridden nearly 2000 miles this spring/summer, it rides fantastic and looks pretty good too in my eyes.

Whatever happened to the 'ole Chinarello' Wheelz? Used to love the updates. Cool
I like that M10 rep, seen loads of them on Aliexpress (just shut most of the copy sites down) and especially DHgate in every colourscheme. How does yours handle? (who's the guy)??????

Hi Trikeman

I am interested in purchasing a Planet X Pro Carbon. What height and resultant frame size are you? Did you purchase online or head to Sheffield to try first. Were Planet x okay to deal with.

Hi, thearchitect
my Planet X is the 44cm S (I'm just on 5'8'') which equates to a 53X53cm if it was a traditional frame set. It took a little getting used to with the low (at rear) top tube but the ride is superb and handles if on rails. I bought this one on line as I couldn't resist it for the money at the time and I had to get back on the road.
If you are buying a complete bike be wary on the Vision Team 30's they come with,,,,,,, in all my days (and that's a long time) around bikes I have NEVER seen tyres so difficult to get off (I just cut the new tyres off) and on, even some tried and tested GP4000's would not go on - they are hideous and I got rid asap. At Wits End

Anyway, back to the bike. For me the PX is a stop gap until I get back to my beloved Colnago's - just waiting for the next frame to come along.
Having said that, as she stands she weighs a decent 16lb dead and is a superb ride in just about every way.

PX were 'OK' to deal with but were a little vague when I first starting to ask questions before purchase, size recommendation was an issue due to the breakpoint between two sizes but in the end I made the decision.

Stick around - if you are about the same size and a decent Colly frame comes along this will be for sale. Crying

Hope it helps.

Trikeman. Wink

My recently purchased Giant Defy Advanced 1. Full Ultegra groupset. Have only done 2 rides so far. Extremely happy with it especially at the price I paid for it. A step up from my other bike, Scott Speedster 20.
A question while I am here. Is it worth getting a Garmin Edge 510 or 810 to use with Giant Ridesense? Currently using Edge 200 which is not Ant+

I know, it's facing the wrong way but the groupset isn't worth showing off anyway.

And then my mtb - frame, handlebar and seatpost are the only original parts!

Focus Cayo Evo, my first proper road bike.
Bought in January this year and, (incase the wife reads this) jewellery excepted, the best thing I have ever bought.

Is that a Canyon VCLS seatpost?
How do you find it? Thinking about one to smooth out the cratered tarmac of Cambridgeshire (and Essex and Hertfordshire). Vibration is one thing but getting nearly thrown off is another!

Yes, it's brilliant.

I've had about 5 seatpost over the last couple of years, original alu ones, upgraded cheapo carbon, vcls 1 and now vcls2.

Vcls1 was great but I got a cracking deal on the 2 and upgraded. It is brill.

Important milestone in Son's Chinarello Maddog's life - she has just 'officially' covered 10,000 miles without any major hitch. Yep, she's had tyres, brakes and chains in that time but as promised (a couple of years ago) here is a photo. It did Morzine run this summer and still rides like a dream. Son will never sell it and has commented that he will ride it until it falls apart - it's not happened yet and for the initial cost of the build that is an important milestone, 0.083p per enjoyable mile. Big Grin

Regards,

Trikeman. Wink

My recently purchased Rossin road bike, believed to be circa 1980, the original downtube gear control is now in the levers with Campy Chorus gear set. Likely to be using this in the summer/dry, currently using my new Forme Calver CX sport, great for commuting.

My Cannondale Synapse 2013 (I think!) 61cm frame that carried me wonderfully with no punctures, problems or mechanicals during all the training for and during LEJOG this summer. Triple chainset on it that was needed inCornwall.

Then, after riding over my dropped water bottle, 5 miles from home a couple of weeks ago, a spoke broke!

I've also out in my Trek 7.3FX hybrid that I use for commuting. 25inch frame for my 6ft 4 self. A good bike, fairly quick but not as good as the Synapse!

My honest little Trek 1.1 - first road bike!

Started cycling this year following rehab for a broken wrist (no contact sport allowed) and this thing has taken me a good couple of thousand miles so far.

Changed out the saddle (I know, rules - the only one I really pay attention to is Rule V) for a bargain cut-out number from PlanetX, there's a saddlebag, and an ass-saver. That's about it really!

Pic taken at the weekend at Threipmuir Reservoir on a 100km loop around Edinburgh.

The 810 is great if you want to use the maps feature properly, the 510 good for everything else but that. Or you could go for the middle ground - the (older) 800 has basically the same functionality as the 810 but without the ability to upload through your phone. Check the mode though - Garmin has introduced some 800 models with no ANT sensors for cadence and HR - you don't want that!
