Your LBS is very nice to ler you borrow the M10. And it is good to hear a ride report fom you.

I can't wait for pics of the KOM C59. That should be awesome!

Hey Bottechia, yes my LBS is very gracious with the loaners -- they also let me try a Cyfac (which was a great ride, but I still found the C59 superior in every respect). Can't wait for the new build (the days simply cant go by fast enough!), and I will be sure to post pictures as soon as she is ready. I also decided to upgrade to Campy Record (instead of Chorus).

We can't wait either...though I am sure that the waiting is harder on you...

Good call on the Record. I have Record on theC59 and on the Infinito and I love how well the group works. I have Athena on the Bott but that is only because it comes in the retro brushed aluminum look.

Tecnos gets new wheels

Never quite liked the look of dull grey rims next to chrome fork and stays.
Velocity just started making its A23s in polished silver. Here they are, laced to a set of Campy-compatible silver King R45 hubs.

I think your bike has to be one of my favorites in this whole thread. Love that metallic blue and the simple yet decorative paint job. I might be the very few here who can't stand those crazy decor color scheme or any of those gradating color.

New in the forum

hi to every body, i'm new in the forum, and like a lot of people i have a silly question, i'm currently own a bmc streetfire ssx 08, easton alloy, but it is a bit large for me in size, i came across on ebay with two frame sets one is a 2001 colnago dream with flash fork, for $585 rabobank paint job colors, and a 2011 masi evoluzione hmc carbon with oversize taper fork, head set and seat post clamp included, for $575. Both frames are my size, i like the masi advance and technology but i can resist for have my first colnago (second hand) built. In both cases i will take all the parts of my bmc and built the new bike and sell the bmc to recover some money, my question for you guys is which bike will be a better built with record group and zipp 404, i'm 5'. 10" and 200lb, heavy bones.

CT2 with compact crank

Hi all

I decided to replace the standard crank with a compact crank because I ride mostly hills and I am getting old and fat. Took the occasion to ride two climbs recently. First was up Mt. Diablo and the other was to ride up Donner Summit from Squaw Valley. Great rides and a lot easier with the compact crank! The CT2 is a great bike.

:)

Here are a couple of shots of my '99 Dream that I purchased in 2001 when I was a freshman in college. I raced collegiate for a couple years on this bike and we've been through a lot together.

I bought her with a mix-matched set of 9sp DA and blue-rimmed open pros. I picked up a matching set of blue Rolf vector-pro tubs for race wheels. Also went through a set of spinergy rev-x's.

In 2010 a collegiate race buddy of mine upgraded from DA7800 to SRAM Red. I picked up the gruppo for cheap and it's treated me well.

This year, I began riding more seriously than in years past. I popped several spokes on my open pros early in the season. Instead of dropping coin into 12+ year old rims, I picked up a set of 7950 DA C24 clinchers. I really like those wheels.

She's been a great bike, but I'm also excited that ~6 weeks ago I ordered a 2013 M10S which has an ETA of Nov 9. My Enve 3.4 tubulars laced to Alchemy elf/Orc hubs are waiting for the frame to arrive. It will be finished with 2012 SRAM Red. Very much looking forward to it and am trying to decide whether to pop for a Quarq.

Without further adieu, the old Mapei maiden (paint chips and all) from atop a couple of couple of this year's conquests:

One of several times up Mt. Diablo this year

I happened to be in Pasadena for a wedding around labor day and took the opportunity to climb the biggest thing I could find. - Mt. Wilson at 5,700 feet overlooking Los Angeles.

Happy Columbus Day

American Italians seem to love Columbus Day - so I present to you my C59 with a pair of Ambrosio Nemesis Rims laced to Record Hubs. These rims rock and the record hubs are without question the smoothest hubs I have and I got DT Swiss 240, Mavic Cosmic Ultimate wheels. Enjoy
