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.  1 I wanna see what bikes you're all riding!

My newly acquired Bernard Dangre; a rather old, sun-kissed, bargain-basement French racer. A car load of us are off to watch stages 4, 5 and 6 of the TDF in a couple of weeks - not taking our best bikes for fear of transport damage, theft outside the cafes, or forgetting where we left them.

The bike came with rather cheap & heavy wheels, to be expected when paying less than £1K. This is a recent bike upgrade, I've been commuting along a canal tow path for years on a Ridgeback Momentum, which, although absolutely fit for purpose, wasn't much fun. With the wheel upgrade, I've got a sub 9kg (just) cross bike for £1350, which I don't think is bad (although I'm sure you'll tell me I could have done better...). See the Novatec CXD review page elsewhere on this site for further discussion about the wheels (& some concerns raised about the low spoke count).

All the way from Montreal, Canada, my Felt AR5 custom build! Got a free frame after crashing my 2010 and decided to take advantage of the situation to upgrade everything around it  3

Cheers,

My Specialized Tarmac S-Works frame that I built up with various bits so that I could get the colour and kit I wanted without being forced down the standard colour route by Specialized.

- Dura-Ace Di2 gears and derailleurs
- S-Works crank & chain rings
- Very light Dark Horse rims (same as Europcar South Africa ride on, good value for money)

N+1 today now makes 3 bikes in my flat with one to go soon.

Forme Calver Sport CX on C2W. Over budget but the original option of Merida Cyclo Cross 4 was too long for delivery so opted for this one 10 days ago.
There is still a rack to fit but not in stock at the LBS yet but I've got the bike to play with for a few days and tweak the set up. The refelctors and bell 'fell off' as soon as the bike came in through the door and the pedals will change to XT SPDs and some helicopter tape will be applied to the headtube at the weekend.

Hi there, new here. I have been cycling for just short of 2 years and have managed to get 2 great bikes. The Cube Attempt is my first bike but has now been relegated to being my winter bike.

The Cube Litening Super HPC Pro is my summer bike which i picked up in September. I can't wait to get a full summer on this machine.

2013 was a cracking year, 7500 miles. Looking forward to topping that in 2014.

Edit: Well i never did get that full summer on the Cube Litening. I crashed into a club mate at 27 mph after he came down in front of me. Huge damage to the top tube resulted in it getting written off.

Insurance payout completed and some research in to the best deals out there at the moment. I am now the very proud owner (and first time builder) of a Scott Foil HMX Team with Ultegra 6870 Di2. Now this is a serious machine!

My Commuter/recently pressed into L'Eroica service '70s Hirondelle.
Love the steel so much I sold my aluminium framed lapierre to afford the next n+1.

Edit: now accompanied by said n+1. My first scratch build.

Roberts XCR frame with a bit of bling
11spd chorus groupset
Ritchey classic stem and bars
Thompson seatpost (ritchey don't do a bloomin 30.6)
Campag vento wheels - budget for now but any suggestions for upgrades appreciated.

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.
