Still on my old faithfulls - bike on left is 7 years old, bike on right is 3 years old.
Bike on right looks and rides better with wheels from bike on left but not practical for everyday riding.

Last year's Yosemite trip means it will be a couple of years before it's new bike time for The Ent.

As of today everything nothing, one way back from work rear free hub body on road bike just let go, which i need to replace asap, roady is custom built rare as rocking horse shit 853 Guyzer

then i have cove g spot freeride as in profile picture which is in pieces as am going to get paint removed and checked for cracks and powder coated over winter

also i have partially built steel inbreed 29 er, but need to get some new spokes as localish bike shop sold me ones which were a mm or so too short so need to strip down and rebuild wheels again this weekend, should be running for monday.

I also have a cannondale hardtail frame which horatio on here chopped in for an exchange of a turner 5 spot i used to own, he polished it up and a local paintshop professionally lacquered it it looks well mint.

I'm probably going to build a downhill rig next spring for next summers alpine adventures.

I don't want to look like I'm trying *too* hard. Rule 40 [1] is optional in my book. Rule 5 is the compulsory one.

Me too. Great bike, although mine is the stock spec with Mavic Askiums.

Also got a Cube X Race Pro, a Genesis Altitude 10, and lurking in the back of my shed and rarely used is my 2004 Specialized Enduro. It got a lot of use until two years ago when I got my Genesis, and now I've got a road and a CX I rarely ride anything that would challenge the Enduro...

Got fond memories of my old Proflex 954 & 957

(not such great memories of rock hard elastomers on the 954!)
In reply to GrahamD:

> I'm not too proud to own up to riding a Giant Defy with Sora shifters.

How are you finding the shifters? Annoyed you can't reach the thumb button from the drops yet? ;-) Have the same on my Boardman, have been having some issues with the left a bit, but it seems we have finally reached an 'understanding' Now I just need to try and sort the squeaky brake!
lost1977 - on 22 Nov 2012
In reply to TobyA:

have you tried moving the brake/shifter a slight move may make all the differance
In reply to lost1977: It's a well known thing with Sora. Just bad/weird design. They've changed it now, next years will be basically the same as the 105 design. My old road bike had cheap end Campag shifters that also had the thumb button, but that was easily reached from the drops. So it can be done, Shimano just didn't for reasons I suspect were most likely to do with hitting a price point.
GrahamD - on 22 Nov 2012
In reply to TobyA:

Because its the first road bike I've had, I found the whole shift cum brake thing taking some getting used to. Its only now I've been using it for a couple of years that I'm starting to notice it (now my wife has upgraded her bike :-) ).

What I find more noticeable is how much better the resting hand position is on top of the brake on the better / newer shifters - much more of a pronounced grip.

Have done c.3,000 miles on it this year and I have to say it's superb. Electronic shifting is definitely worth the money and not a gimmick.
AndyE9 on 22 Nov 2012
my current road bike is

giant defy advance , but have stripped out the Shimano group set and fitted sram , this is because i much prefer sram , and they are lighter , also swapped the wheels for some mavics which i must add a really good and are super light for the cost . .

After taking my 12 year old touring bike that I bought for 300 quid when I was 16 over some of the bike alpine cols last summer I decided I needed a new bike... so just got myself a second hand 2010 trek 1.7 with 105/ultegra. Wont be able to ride it till spring though when I'm fully recovered from hip surgery!
