Exactly what I was thinking. Who wants to expend the energy running or bicycling if something big isn't chasing them? [:D]
Link Posted: 6/26/2003 6:23:16 PM EDT
Wow, that's smaller than my wife's bike. Her Castelli is 56cm. I have two custom built 67cm road bikes and a TT bike. 190mm cranks on the road and 195mm on the TT bike. All D/A except for the cranks and BB. D/A BB don't like that much stress. Nice ride. Get some classy Elite bottle cages. Is that saddle comfy?

Link Posted: 6/26/2003 8:24:12 PM EDT
lol...I'll get that card on the spokes...think a clothes pin will work? Its a 51cm frame with a 53cm top tube. I am running a 110mm stem, and my cranks are 172.5mm. The Cassette is a 12-23. innocent_bystander...you must be a freaken giant brother!!!! 67cm frame? Thats huge! Whats your overall reach?

Didn't know there were so many bike enthusiasts on this site. ..running clinchers, the saddle is great...like it better than Selle Italia Flight Gel and its much lighter, but the key is a good pair of shorts. Santini twist gel bibs... I have found to be the best. The bike is smooth as silk. The carbon fiber soaks up the road vibrations, and the Fondriest layering technique allows all the power to be transferred to the road. QCMGR...how do you like your Trek? Here are some more pics: [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid67/p182952fd3af85a70383b6241bab75907/fbd47b14.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid67/pe337c2d372d29f3ef576b667b5114335/fbd8d4b3.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid67/padb534eb7ec60bcea6f4217a2bdaf7d8/fbd8d4bc.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid67/p15d3e20783b27e5330b928a44a0c70d2/fbd62b2f.jpg[/img]

Umm, 67 cm? How tall are you? I'm 6'4" and can ride a 62 cm. I ride a Lemond Zurich, which is quite nice. Stable handling but quick enough to be at home in a fast paceline and descends well.

I'm 6'7" and my inseam is 103cm thus the big bike. Leonard Zinn and I are about the same size except he is 20 pounds lighter. The thinnest I have ever been was 190 at 5% body fat. Zinn is like 170 pounds.

On another note. Joe Friel hangs out here part of the year and goes on our group rides. He turned me on to Coombe pedals. If you use Sidi shoes the pedals are ultra low profile. [url]www.coombe.com[/url]
Link Posted: 6/27/2003 5:34:02 AM EDT
I thought that was getting light...then found out its a small 50's frame. That is getting piggy, IMHO. My 57 cm CAAD 4 weighs in at 14.5 pounds. All DA, including the BB (with no problems, either) and Easton carbon bar and seatpost. Ritchey WCS stem and O2 racing saddle. For the wheels, I made a 1250 gram pair of clinchers. American Classic 350 rims with their lightweight hubs. Yes, 1250 grams, WITH STRIPS and SKEWERS, ready to roll with grease! Unfortunately the rims are no longer available as components so building a similar set is nigh impossible although you could buy the wheels outright and relace. I run 23mm Supersonics and have gotten great mileage off them but I only weigh 160 pounds.

I have a 9 speed Trek 5500 and 2300. LA is currently testing out Shimano's new 10 speed stuff, but I'll stick with 9 for a while. Thank god we haven't had to endure any "Shimano is junk: Buy Campy" posts,,, yet. Jay

Nice ride!! I race an Anniversary edition, CAAD 7 Cannondale Black Lightning. It is #225 out of 300. Full Campy Record carbon fiber groupo, with a Selle Italia Prolink saddle. 12-25 10 speed cogset, Campy Neutron wheelset, and Conti Grand Prix 3000s. It is right at the UCI legal weight limit, and it is sized at about 61 cm. Amazing how many cyclists there are on this board. Edited to add: Shimano is junk, buy Campy! [:D]

Correction, Shimano WAS junk. Now the two are nearly identical in functional quality...but if you want to pay 50% more for cosmetic differences, go right ahead. Its like saying a Lecia is far superior to a Nikon. Or a BMW is far superior to a Lexus. Now back to the bike...if I were to swap my CAAD 4 out with a CAAD 7, I could get down to the 13 pound range...currently my bike is a bit on the harsh side and it takes a special style of riding to keep good contact with the road. No sprints like an old steel bike.
Link Posted: 6/27/2003 6:35:56 AM EDT
Of course Shimano isn't junk, Keith, I was making a joke on what AZCOP wrote. My mountain bikes have Shimano groups. Lance seems to do fine with Shimano on his road bike, also. I just like the Campy shifters so much better. The Record groupo doesn't cost twice what DA costs, anyway, and I get those really cool carbon levers and carbon derailleur body!!

9mm vs. .45, AR vs. AK, Smimano vs. Campy, trimmed vs natural. Where will it end.

...Just got back from an Airborne Op...Lots of responses! You all have some sweet rides! I was going to buy a Cannondale, but the deal on the Fondriest was too good to pass up! The indentation on the top tube is actually supposed to be for knee clearance. Innocent_bystander...Do you find the Coombe pedals to be a good platform? I have the SIDI Genius 4's as well....and brother you are a giant! Do your pedals scrape the road?...LOL Keith_J...57cm at 14.5? Thats light brother! I better weigh mine again....I'll take the computer off this time ;-)
Link Posted: 6/27/2003 1:33:51 PM EDT
The cool thing about the Sidi/Coombe combo is that the sole of your shoe will strike pavement before the pedal or cleat. I'm running 190 cranks with pretty much a standard BB height and never had a strike. They are great crit pedals.

I remember years ago, road bikes had solid dishes on either the front or back rim. My friends told me it was to make the bike more aerodynamic instead of the wind passing through the spokes. I've also heard it was a disadvantage becuase cross winds will make those solid dish covers seem like sails and cause instability. Is this still a current trend in the biking world?

Thanks! You are the first one to get the connection to that movie. [:D] And remember if you ever have a question about training, etc., just post it on my forum or read some of my training articles. I usually wait a few to post an answer on the forum so others can post their answers, cause I seem to kill the post thread after I answer. But if you have a specific question for me, just let her rip.
