Let's try again. Keep it clean!

My first road bike purchased earlier this summer, a Dawes Lightning 1200:



Added Syntace C2s, Forte clipless, and a Micro Cateye Wireless. I already have over 500 miles on it including two sprint tri's and a duathlon.

My Windsor Kennett. I have 2600 miles on it in a little over a year. I replaced the Shimano R-550 wheels with Velocity Areohead wheels laced with Sapim-CX-Ray spokes. The wheels rock. Replaced the saddle with a Specialized Alias. I needed a shorter stem so I replaced it with a Syntace 90mm stem at 99 grams. The tires are Michelin ProRace2 tires with just under 800 miles.

What hubs?

Looks like your saddle is tipped down a bit, or is that photo?

The hubs are Velocity (branded hubs) made by Formula. They spin very smoothly. The whole wheel build was done by Velocity. I am 210 lbs so I needed a stronger build. So they gave me 28 spokes in the front and 32 in the rear. As far as the saddle while it is ever so slightly tilted down (like 1 or 2 degrees) it looks more so because the bike isn't parallel to the building.

I've only had this Moto about a month but I love it!


I'm currently shopping for a road bike to replace my 17 year old Schwinn 105 and will probably get another BD bike. Unfortunately, it seems like 90% of their bikes are either black or silver and I prefer red or white. That Draco is very tempting though....

Keep those pics coming.

I'm not trying to dis anyone but you know that Moto carbon frame in white rocks. And to think I could have one this season for the same amount I paid for my Le Champion in blue last year. And, no, if I did my wife would....well you know.

P.S. I have changed my username but not my signature.
