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!

So my lockdown project is finally complete today.

It's a 2015 Genesis Volare 953 stainless, ex-team frame, with DA 9000 Di2 throughout. Zipp SL80 trad bend bars, Deda superleggero stem and seatpost. Campag wheels which I had already. It's amazingly smooth like all steel frames, but also light at 7.65kg as pictured. Seems quite a stiff platform too, if not as immediately reactive as a top level carbon frame. I aways said I would never get into electronic shifting, but then the frame came with a complete Di2 wiring harness, so I've dived in. So far so good.

2023 update: 3 years later, and it's my best bike for big faster miles, here on a 100 miler round North Norfolk and down to Ely this summer.

I've got the same. It's a bliss to drop the bike and observe that colour all day.

For the record, it's a 2012 Charge Juicer Hi. That picture is three years old, but it's still going strong. In February this year I upgraded from old 105 to new 105.

Have you ridden it yet and, if so, how do you like it so far?

CGR Ti getting me through the winter nicely. Added some pdw mudguards and some dt swiss wheels as it's mostly used on the road at the moment. 

What's in like?  Although I'm not really in the market of a new bike, the idea of a (relaively) affordable ti bike is very tempting - so I'm tempted by both the CGR or the Endurance Ti.

I've been commuting all week on it, 13km each way on North Surrey/South London's crappy roads. I'm very pleased with it, seems more comfortable than my alloy CX bike but that might just be the slightly fatter tyres. Gravelking SKs make a very entertaining noise on tarmac.

I've had it just over a year and so far it's been great. Never had a dedicated winter/bad weather bike before. I originally got it for my commute too which involves a rough towpath. The mavic wheels and 40mm tyres made it comfy but sluggish. Putting some 28mm tyres and lighter wheels had made it much more snappy and fun to ride. If I had the choice again I'd probably go for the endurance ti as commuting is no longer a factor as I'll be working from home for the foreseeable. That being said if you do want something that will allow some light off road action and decent road performance get the cgr. Annoyingly they released the new frame a month after I got mine. Hope that helps.

I'm not sure if I've posted this bike.

I like it. Double butted chromoly, weighed at 10.56kg, front weight bias, light 7 speed rear end.
I'm trying to find my drill.
I bought $20(Australian) lay bars, removed the stands and will get a better purchase fastening directly through cross bar. The lay bars are concave around bolt holes to suit an easy install. Fasteners (2 longer bolts +shaped washers less than $5Australian)
Cost of bike with bright usb rechargeable lights front/rear on useable GP4000 Continental tyres: $100(Australian)

Eg all up, less than 70 quid.
2 cm shorter than my others but agile on the drops and laybars should ease the straights. 1 happy cyclist.

@oldfatgit, what a horrible experience. 

Anyways... here's a bike I recently put together for commuting. I bought a Kinesis Tripster AT frame when they were widely on sale earlier this year and have built it up with Shimano Metrea components done as 1x11 and some carbon bars and seatpost from China. Comes in at 9.5kg as pictured. I'm really enjoying riding it, being able to use wider tyres really does make a commute on UK's endlessly dug up roads more pleasant.

Kinesis GTD Ti

105 groupset, Fulcrum racing 5 wheels - my new commuter. Should have had a longer conversation with the wife before picking the parts, turns out she wouldn't have objected to me spending an extra £1k on it, so I could have had carbon wheels and Di2 as well.
