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.

My new bike. A Radon Vaillaint Dura Ace which was on rebate.

Overall the bike is light and fun to ride, just that the cosmic elite is a bit dull during acceleration. It seems to bend from side to side when I pedal hard out of saddle. (I am just 60kg btw) Sad

Here are a few shots of my new Felt AR3. It's full 6800 Ultegra 52/36 11-25, all stock apart from shorter crank arms. Elite stealth cages, K-Edge chaincatcher and the new Garmin sensors hooked to an Edge 500.



Yes, the steerer needs cutting!

My current stable:

Raleigh Clubman - a bargain I couldn't resist

Genesis Volant - I decided to take it up to Scotland the other week with minimal baggage. I have to say it fared pretty well considering

Peugeot Performance (80s/90s?) - this currently lives 'up the road' but it's getting taken down here at the first opportunity. Great fun to ride.

Edinburgh Bike Co Courier Nexus - my bad weather beater, although I'm probably going to get shot of it to make space

My home built Bianchi Infinito, first model.

Now updated to full Campagnolo Super Record
Fulcrum Racing 3 wheels
Syntace Racelight 2 bars
FSA OS-99 carbon stem
Syntace HiFlex seatpost
San Marco SLK saddle
All tuned with titanium bolts.

Very nice looking bike! I think I may be persuaded to get those wheels! Smile

That's the Fizik PA:K bag, but what size? And have you had any problems with the clip? Seems like a fair amount of grumbling on CRC.

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.

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
