Pictures of your Bike

So, I figured that no bicycle forum would be complete without pictures of bikes! Post your photos here, no bike will be refused: Road TT Triathlon Cyclocross MTB BMX Shixie Fixie And anything else! Lovely bikes lovely, but everyday bikes interesting too. I won't post first, but I'm taking pictures right now.  1 I wanna see what bikes you're all riding!

If you're new please join in and if you have questions pop them below and the forum regulars will answer as best we can.

For a moment I was wondering what kind of weird-ass overkill rack setup you had there.

Then I realised it was a fence.

Where's a headdesk smiley when you need one?

Here's my Fuji 2010 track bike. I ride it every day. Gave it a new paint job since it was looking pretty bad. I get a lot of complements on it. Especially the handcuffs!

That's an arresting look.

An extreme 'out there' unbalanced setup. Why not make things better with a simple Carradice QR on the seat post to carry a Camper Longflap? OK, so these are annoying 'cotton-duck' instead of proper nylon with click-buckles, but they're otherwise excellent. Mine is now completely knackered after 16 years, but I've had the replacement-in-waiting for a couple of years.

I have a couple of rear bag options (Saddle Sacks), but for this trip it gave me the lowest total weight like this. The bike handled perfectly fine and I have no complaints.

Well, I'm impressed by the size of that room - are you royalty?

Really effective use of a mirror and wide angle lens to make a room look larger. He could be standing near the corner of a 4 m x 5 m room. Still large, but not as massive as it first appears.

The bike is aerobatic. Next question?

Presumably 3.7% more aerobatic than the previous model?

Thief 2: "Well, where does he live?"

Thief 1: "I don't know. England, most likely. Or at least Britain. Maybe. We'll just look for the house with the white garage door."

What I like best about this thread is the number of bikes on a website for roadies that aren't road bikes.

Wait, this site is for roadies? I've never even owned a road bike. What am I doing here?

That's so cool.  Roughly, what's the process for doing it?

The process was really simple. Just sprayed it white and drew on it with a permanent marker. And then got a very thick lacquer put on it to protect it. It looked like glass when it was done!

The process was simple but the actual drawing was quite difficult. Drawing cubes on a round frame was really hard! Also at the beginning had lots of problems with smudging so had to clean/redo a lot of parts, that nearly finished me off no

Here's my commuter.
[...] Oh, and replaced the Gates CDN belt with a CDX model (the rear sprocket and belt both failed, Gates sent me the upgrade under warranty).

Yours doesn't seem to have got out much judging by the plants. +1 for the practical accessories - IGH, rack, mudguards. I'd love something like that for day-to-day trips! Currently use 1980s Dawes Galaxy (with dynamo hub) simply because it's indestructable and tatty so not worried about dings / attracting attention.

Still not sold on belt drive but for urban use, if it stays cleaner than a chain maybe? It's the whole "perfect until it suddenly fails" / "brand lock-in" worries.

I took the Bianchi on a 100 miler to really stretch it's legs. I stopped at the place where the rules / laws of the modern game of cricket were formulated.

Hi guys. New here. 
Took up cycling to get fit and ended up falling in love around 5 years ago.

Started on a giant rapid. Ended up buying a defy. Sold them both and after 2 months I missed it so much I ended up looking for another and found this gem.

i understand it isn't latest model. But it was seriously too good a price to not buy.

 

I have rode the ass out of it in the few months I have had it.

Up in the Sierra Nevada, Spain, where I live. Some terrific roads out here. It's only a humble B'TWIN but it gets me where I want to go.
