Soma Rush
Samson (used yahoo auction japan to buy a used Samson, ship it to a friend in Japan, then have them ship to the US)
Felt F3C, bought the frame for 350. Currently needs different crankset and BB.

They may not be "clueless", but might actually be razzing on us human powered enthusiasts, since to some "bike" implicitly implies an engine and two wheels. wink

I'm down to just a 2001 vintage, Sommerville, Mass. (one of the LAST from there, before they were sold to LiteSpeed) built Merlin Road, with all Campy Record (also 2001 vintage, except that I upgraded to ~2010 Record Carbon compact cranks), Kestrel carbon bars, Easton carbon seatpost, S.I. Flite TT saddle, and a Reynolds carbon fork with Mavic Cosmic Elite wheels.

Like Doug, I've had many road (and track) racing bikes in the past (from a racing career I started back when I was 13 in 1970).

But, unlike Doug (sadly enough), I did NOT hold onto my old, vintage rides. frown

Giant Defy 2. Two kids in college and one starting high school means the carbon fiber road bike is many years down the road, pardon the pun.

I had a pearl white with chrome chainstays Olmo SLX road bike with all Super Record and Mavic SSC rims back in the early to mid '80s.

I did not even think anyone was importing Wiliers into this land until the last 5-10 years! Yours must be crazy rare here!! thumbsup

My last serious road bike was a Holdsworth frame I assembled myself. Weinmann concaves, Huret Derailleurs, and a whole lot of alloy parts collected over the years. It was one fast road bike but it was like a 70s Corvette: it rode like a rock and took constant attention to ride well.

Today, its a Giant Rincon CS with a re-geared crankset. I lost 5 mph but it is sooooo much easier to ride: more comfortable, softer ride, more forgiving handling.

I learned that I ride to an exertion level. I get the same exercise from the Giant but it's at a slower pace.

I remember some of those Holdsworths had some VERY elaborate/ornate lugs, no??

Didn't they also have a 'touring frame' model with heavily curved, sweeping seat stays, supposedly for a more 'cushy' ride?

My very first real road bike was a powder blue 531 Falcon with Weinmann rims built on Campy record HIGH flanges!

Mine was a straight up touring frame, made from Reynolds 531 tubing. The lugs were really well designed so there weren't stress risers in the tubing after brazing.

There was absolutely no danger of a cushy ride. Of course, 105 psi in the tires didn't help much. We used to joke that you could run over a dime and tell heads or tails right through the handlebars :-)

Impressive!

Which shoes do you use for the Speedplay pedals??

Sadly, (and amazing, considering how many top Pro tour, and Elite U.S. Pro teams ride Speedplay currently) not too many shoe manufacturers make a Speedplay specific bolt pattern shoe/sole. frown mad

I am thinking of getting the DMTs, if I can find my size, or just giving in and using the adapters with Bonts, since the stack height would not be very much given how paper thin their soles are. wink (Sidis NEVER fit my feet/toes correctly.)

Daily, thank you. All my bikes are pampered to the extreme. All but the tandem are parked inside the house. I lick the Seven and Saso off after each ride. Chains on all lubed before each ride using T9 Boeshield. Given my size and power, and all the climbing I do, I kill chains after just 1,500 miles or so. I usually ride about 4,000 to 7,000 miles a year, depending on what household projects have going on (I'm retired).

I ride Sidi "Megas" for both road and mountain. Size 49! My wife married me 'cause I'm big! ;-)

Why don't the Sidi's fit your feet? Perhaps the Megas will help....? They have a much wider toe box.

Scott

PS Thinking about adding another road bike to the fleet. A Moots Vamoots, or possibly a Calfee Dragonfly. It'll probably be the Vamoots. The Calfee looks really sexy, but I'm a Ti guy.

DD, just noticed your earlier post. Nice! You know the Seven brand was started by some Merlin exiles when Merlin was sold? Rob Vandermark was the guy who left Merlin and started Seven. Seriously, a nicely kept Merlin turns my head every time. Sexy.

Yes, I do know that about Seven Cycles, as well as that they are one of the VERY few domestic builders doing their OWN carbon fiber lay-ups vs. going to Taiwan, or mainland China (so you KNOW where I'm going when I have the coin to go to a cf/kevlar composite frameset! wink )

It is less the width of the shoe/toe box than the height of said toe box.
My feet are average to narrow width (they are 'swimming' in Megas), but for some reason very thick in height, so Sidis (and others) tend to crush my toes/cause blisters and abrasions.

I ride a 45.5 to 47/48, depending on manufacturers' sizing, so I also have a hard time finding my size in ANYTHING.

I am currently using an older pair of Carnacs, which I bought specifically because of their high, comfy, toe box, without being too wide.

But these are wearing out (Sinclair stopped bringing this brand into the country a LONG time ago), the stack height with the requisite Speedplay adapter makes me feel as though I'm a foot off of the pedals, and ONE of these shoes weighs TWICE what a PAIR of modern, carbon fiber compsite soled shoes does! frown crzy

I may just go back and try on the Sidi Wires (the ONLY current Sidis with a Speedplay specific sole) once more to see if I can 'live' with the discomfort.

BTW; is Calfee one of the scarce other U.S. frame builders doing their very own carbon fiber lay-ups???

DD, I used to ride Carnacs. They did have a tall toe box, it just wasn't wide enough for me.

The Calfee uses tubes manufactured by Enve. Calfee then joins them with their own carbon fiber wrapped "lugs".

If you are ever in California's Central Coast Wine Country, look me up. We'll figure out a way to get that sexy Merlin of yours out here.

The Pro Peleton would be impressed with the riding we have in this region. The worst part about the region's riding is that it can be isolated. There is virtually no automotive traffic. The road and scenery are outstanding but sometimes you have to plan ahead with respect to water, etc. In fact, some of areas I ride don't even have cell phone coverage. But, the best word to describe the road riding is "idyllic". It's spectacularly gorgeous and peaceful. It truly is.

My current fleet. I ride mountain bikes for both trail and street use.

Huffy Enduro. The oldest bike I have in my garage, my neighbor gave it to me when they moved out. Not sure what year it was made but probably early 90s, likely made in USA. Very heavy steel frame, feels close to 40 pounds. Its a bit rusty and stuff is old tech. It has 15 speed, the front shifter is not indexed. Bike is a bit small for me since it has 24" tires, I don't really ride it so its more of a spare bike.

Trek 820. My newest addition, it has steel frame but doesn't weigh significantly heavier than a comparable entry level 6061 aluminum frame bike. Pretty good bike for the price.

^^^NICE!! thumbsup

When I started racing as a 14 year old 'intermediate' (the age classes were VERY different back then) in 1970, in Joyzee, there was a club/team out of the Sommerville area called the Somerset Wheelmen, (I believe they are still around, based out of Flemington now) and almost all of them rode Campy equipped Paramounts of that era (531 tubing back then, correct?).

Road - 2012 Scott CR-1 Team, all-Shimano 105 components

MTB - 2011 Specialized Hardrock SportDisc 29 (mixture of entry-level components). Added a Hussefelt handlebar.

Incidentally, the right chain stay on the Hardrock broke at the bottom bracket weld after about a year of riding in Memphis (no rocks, nor any kind of really rough terrain). Specialized replaced frame under warranty, but did not cover labor, which was irritating. Shop charged $50 to swap components over, which they said was giving me a deal.

Interestingly, the original frame was made in China, while the replacement was made in Taiwan (preferable to me). Makes me wonder if they swapped production of these frames to Taiwan due to inconsistent quality.

I love to ride, off-road and on. Especially hills.

I have an early '90s mountain bike that I've got set up for road/touring use. I replaced the triple front chain ring with a 42/53 Shimano 105 double and have a Dura Ace front derailleur from a friend's parts bin. Works like a champ! I run Michelin City tires on it, in 35-559 size (26x1.4"). These are the exact ones:

I've actually got the exact same setup as the first reviewer; I'm using these on an old mountain bike with 26x1.5 Araya rims. These will be ideal if you are looking at mostly pavement. If you are looking at more of a mix, I've used the Bontrager LT3s before and enjoyed those. They don't offer a solid center rib, and understandably feel a little more squirrely in corners.

Both of these tires are reasonably priced and offer good performance.

Just checked out Michelin's site to see if they still sell the City Protek. It doesn't appear that they do. They have something called the Protek Cross that looks right up your alley:

The Protek (without 'Cross') looks to be the direct replacement to the City:

Having been out of the Bike scene for so long, I really had no idea what's available. Without knowing any better, I probably would've ended up with some dirt-specific tire.

I appreciate the advice, and I'll check out the suggestions.

Looking at bikes again since I miss riding a bike for my commute.. what a great way to de-stress. Right now this all I have but really need to get a better built bike.. but hey the bikes I have were either cheap or free with a single income no choice in the matter.

Huffy Tiempo .. ugly, old and heavy but with skinny tires not a bad mover.
DBX MTB .. Perhaps the best built bike.. heavy with 24" tires
Murray MTB .. yeah it's junk.. use it to haul the kids around campgrounds.

I have been using Schwalbe Marathon since 2001 and I forget about leaks. They rolls good too and have grip in dry and wet weather. Last years Schwalbe moves strongly in US too. I don´t know how much do they cost. In europe you can find them between 17..22 euro

While I like Michelin tires for my car, the bicycle tires from Michelin is lagging behind competition nowadays. Schwalbe Vittoria and Continental are leaders., Kenda is OK too. Some small manufactures offer very good specific tires.
The modern bicycle tires are expensive and high-tech, e.g. Kevlar,Vectran, dual triple synthetic compounds .They are almost puncture free, rolls easy comfortable and some of them lasts 20 000.

Vittorias (the 290+ TPI models) have always been the most responsive/best rolling road tires for me, only beaten by the old, now defunct, Clement Seta and Seta Extra, latex tubed sew-ups. wink

Yes, as I have said before on here, I had a set of the old, late '70s -early '80s Conti road tubulars (forgot what they called them back then, but they were ~250 grams in weight), and they were aged about 2 years, and wore like the proverbial case hardened iron!

I even used them in a couple of DRY cyclocross events back then and I could NOT kill them!! crzy

Olas;

I will bet the director sportif of sky is now VERY MUCH regretting leaving Sir Bradley Wiggins off of their TdF squad, correct?? frown

I can sort of understand their rationale, there being only ONE single 'contre la montre', and MUCH elevation gain in this year's route, but still there is a greater than excellent chance that the ex world class and champion pursuiter would be in (and finish) within the top three. wink

When I started racing as a 14 year old 'intermediate' (the age classes were VERY different back then) in 1970, in Joyzee, there was a club/team out of the Sommerville area called the Somerset Wheelmen, (I believe they are still around, based out of Flemington now) and almost all of them rode Campy equipped Paramounts of that era (531 tubing back then, correct?).


Sorry I missed your post. Paramounts of that era were built either with Reynolds 531 or Columbus SL (SP) in the larger sizes. My casual empiricism suggests that 531 frames were probably more prevalent. My Paramount is built from Reynolds 753. Although the frame is in really good shape, I'm sending it to Waterford to be completely redone with new paint and decals, putting it back exactly as original. Since my original post, The Eddy Merckx Titanium wore out. It didn't fail, it just developed too much slop in the bottom bracket. It was very recently replaced by a custom built Lynskey.

Lynskeys are COOL! thumbsup

My Merlin Road is also getting a little bit 'whippy' in the chainstay area as well, but still not too bad yet.

I would go carbon next, but am still a little wary over the way they just shear/crack, sometimes with NO warning or without even hitting a pothole/bump (see Alberto Contador's bike in this year's Tour eek ).

The era (and riders) of Paramounts I was speaking of were BEFORE 753 was even around!! grin2

I remember when 753 was introduced, and the whole Dutch Raleigh pro squad were riding frames built of the lighter tubing in the Tour that year. wink

I had no idea there was a bike forum in here. This is my new passion even if I'm not very good.

Bikes:

'09 Specialized Epic Expert
'14 Giant Trance SX

The Epic was bought and nearly forgotten about because of big life changes such as a new job and new home. It probably has under 50 miles on it. The original tires are still on it with 95% of the tread still there. About 6 months ago when I decided to get back into mountain biking I replaced the original brakes with Shimano XTs and used the 180/160 rotors from my Trance. Generally speaking I don't care for the Avid/SRAM brakes although the Guides I spent a short time with seem really nice. I really like this bike, it's a great do it all bike and it's very efficient. It soaks up large bumps much better than you would think a 4" travel bike would.

My Trance SX is my baby. Due to my weight (240lbs) and the terrain I ride, I ordered a few upgrades along with the bike. I wanted to retain the 1X setup since I've been wanting to try that setup for a while but I needed a deeper low gear without compromising the top end. I went from the stock 34t front and 11-24 cassette to an X01/XX1 11sp setup with a 32t front and 10-42 cassette. IMO, this is just about the best (and only way) to do a 1X setup in my area. Not cheap but worth every penny to me. It was supposed to be an all X01 setup but I accidentally got an XX1 shifter.

I also ordered a pair of 203mm Shimano Ice Tech rotors and finned metal pads for the stock brakes. This worked great until I got bored. I can't say enough about the Deores that came with the bike. These are one of the best brakes I've run regardless of price and it doesn't hurt that they're around $60 or even less new. They have the same power and modulation of the more expensive XT, XTR, and SLX brakes. They all have the same master and slave piston area so I guess it makes sense. The only thing they were lacking that some of the higher end Shimanos had were certain adjustments and they used metal pistons instead of ceramic pistons. I would have no problem sticking these on a high end build.

So I ended up with the Zees and they're great as well. There's about 17 or 18% more slave piston area with the same master size as the other Shimanos so there's a little more power with better modulation but a little more lever travel. There's really no way to get around the additional travel but you can minimize it to where it's barely noticeable if you set them up well. These things have great power and even better control. They use 4 ceramic pistons and they do an excellent job at keeping heat out of the fluid. They use a larger pad with more surface area which is nice. More surface area has no effect on power but it does mean a longer lasting pad (all else being equal like compound) and a slightly cooler pad in some instances. Just an all around great reliable brake that is nearly identical to the much more expensive Saints but without the tool free adjustments. They require an allen wrench for adjustments. The best part is you can get each one out the door for $150. It's not cheap but it's a lot of brake for the money.

I transferred my WTB Laser saddle over to it from my hardtail, my most favorite seat ever.

The part that ruins the bike..... the shock. It sucks. I'm one of the few that like the supposedly over damped '14 Fox CTD fork but the shock which most liked ok I absolutely despise. It's just not made for my weight. If I set it up with 15% sag it blows through travel just riding off of a curb. I installed the biggest volume reducer and then had to make a couple more. It's not recommended and it's probably dangerous but it really transformed the ride. It now has great small bump compliance, great traction over anything and doesn't blow through travel. It could still use a little more toward the end of travel though. Even with the spring portion taken care of, it sorely lacks damping for my weight. I was going to experiment with a thicker oil but I'm just going to get a different shock.

Other than the rear shock I absolutely love this bike. For me, it's the ultimate do it all bike. It's 28lbs, climbs very well. It's well mannered up hill, on tight trails with switchbacks, and it descends like a mini downhill bike. There are bikes that will outdo it in one or two areas but this is about as good as it gets if you can only own one bike for everything.

Anyone have suggestions for the shock? I'm seriously considering the Cane Creek shock since it's so adjustable. I was a power lifter so most of my 240lbs is muscle or I would lost weight to help out. I no longer compete and can probably cut down to 220lbs but at that weight I won't have any fat left to lose. I'm sure the muscle will go away over time but I need a shock that will deal with at least 220lbs on a regular basis and the CC shocks seem to be the only ones that will work for me so far.

I had no idea mountain biking could be so addictive and I never thought I would be so stupid as to buy a bike like this but I guess it beats spending the same amount on beer every few months like I used to do lol.

Yes, I understand that he is still in business. He relocated to Massachusetts several years ago and stopped taking new orders because he had a backlog of five or six years.

I never even knew that Trek used Reynolds tubing, as I always thought that they used True Temper when steel tubing was called for.

OLD Trek frames used Reynolds, I worked on a few in my bike mechanic days. Very nice lugged frames.

Picked up a new used Specialized HardRock. Weighs half of the old 10 speed Huffy. Aluminum rims and different style of brakes that I must say stop on a dime! Did 850 miles on the old Huffy.. looking forward to commuting on the much better bike! Already outfitted with lights and a .10 rack.

Get a top quality lock or you will lose the bike.

Hate to say but that's kind of a given. But yes I'll have a good lock. I'm keeping the old ten speed in working order for the KCK area. There's much better bikes in the work rack if I store it there, but most likely will be stored in my office.

A friend of mine disguises a good bike for commuting. He covers it in a bad duct/electrical/masking tape job. It adds almost no weight, protects the paint and makes it look [censored]. If he wants to remove the gummy residue, he baby oils it off. You could do the same with plasti-dip.

He does keep it inside at work (and home).
He figures it may prevent him getting mugged for it.

The 90's paint job isn't fancy and faded on it but that is a good idea with the tape! I could always take the quick release front wheel off if I feel the need. sure they could carry it off but don't think they would...

Motobecane Grand Record road bike 2005. Just bought a Diamondback Axis Sport mountain bike today. Will pick it up in about a week. I look forward to a bike with disc brakes.

I have an old 1993 Diamondback Axis bike with Manitou front fork that needs new elastomers. I think I'm going to use it for an exercise bike with my Kinetic trainer.

I have a 1972 Raleigh Record that I've used intermittently through the years. I bought it new, and it's in beautiful shape. I'm getting it ready now for some summer riding.
