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!

Its supplied with Sram Red, but I went down the dream build option that they offer... Only completed a 40 mile club run so far but smiled from ear to ear the whole time.

Just back from a re-paint at Vernon Barkers. Forks from a Pinarello Prince. Belt drive is great for commuting.

Built earlier this month:

Pinnacle Dolomite 5 2014 frame & fork, Campagnolo Athena silver alloy groupset, Superstar Components Elite 24 wheels with Continental GP Classic tyres, Planet X CNC brakes, Charge saddle & bar tape, various parts from KCNC (bars, bar plugs, stem, headset, seatpost, seatpost clamp)

It was a fairly low-cost build, with the exception of some silly expensive stuff like the Jagwire Elite Links cable outers or the Tune quick release skewers, but both components work well, they look good *and* they are lightweight, so ...  16 well worth it IMHO.

Comes in at 7.8 kg including pedals.  105 Accelerates like mad.

When I cut the steerer tube I erred on the side of caution, leaving a bit of a safety margin, but after a few test rides with the stem slammed I'm pretty sure I won't need it, so that's going to come off soon.

I apologise for having the chain in the small ring & big sprocket, but what you can't see on that picture is the climb from hell to the right of the camera that I had just come up and was taking a well deserved rest from.

^thats very nice  4
It may just be the camera angle but have the bars slipped forwards? The hoods look like they're pointing downwards....
Also I think it would look even better without the wheel decals  1

Thanks!
This is indeed in part due to the camera angle, however I do have the bar dropped in a more old school fashion rather than pointing upwards as it is very poplar these days.
As for decals they only shine in a camera flash. Otherwise wheels are completely black which I like very much too! Reflective decals make me more visible at night. You can never be too careful!

The Summer bike. Bianchi Infinito cv Chorus. The wheels are not FFWD's but some stickered up Far Sports. These only get used on calm days as they do tend to get blown around. The bike usually has a set of Mavic R-SYS SLR's.

That is utter filth - I love it!

How do you find the 2015 Campy groupset?

I love it.

I have 105 on my winter bike and had SRAM Force 22 on another. I prefer the shifting on SRAM and Campagnolo to that of Shimano which I find too vague. I prefer that solid clunk that you get with the others that leaves you in no doubt that you have made a change. I would say though that the SRAM always felt too tight as though the cables were over stressed.

The Chorus just feels right to me and also has the advantage that you can make multiple shifts both up and down without having to repeatedly move the shifter.

The only downside is that the thumb levers can be a little awkward to reach from the drops on certain bars. I believe that the thumb levers are a different shape on Athena but you you loose the multi shift on down shifts.

Divergence from the theme - but I feel that Campag is a bit marmite. You either love it or hate it. Must say I prefer Shimano. You have a better feel for the changes rather than the clunky Campag and no problems shifting on the drops. Don't start me on double tapping on SRAM.
