    Not nicer, just different. I've been on carbon forever, the C50 is probably one of the smoothest road bikes out there, so going to a full alloy (vs. the scandium/carbon bike I have) is a bit of a change. Like the bikes I was riding in the late 90s/early 2000s.

    I'm new to the forum, so I thought I'd start off by posting up my bikes. Unfortunately I had to cannibalise the shifters + derailleur on the Kestrel... so it's no longer a complete build...

    Well...it was bound to happen. ~14k on the frame.

    Was on a 65-ish mile ride on Sunday and at some points I felt a little wobble going on in the rear wheel area of my bike...I passed it off at the time as just me still being hung the f*ck over. Turns out it wasn't me... (sorry for the blurryness...I sux at teh photoz skillz.)







    Updates to follow...

    I'll probably go with that F95-n-strip route you suggested. Same shop that I'm dealing with for the Scott sells Felts. They're good guys. Seems like the best idea at a reasonable price...Plus I like the team paint job...it'll make me feel all pro er somethin'....

    Badasssssssssssssssssss

    You'll really like that frame, I did/do. And I liked the team look so much I got a carbon one to match. Or something. Heh...

    I still have the entire build kit off of that bike I need to get rid of, I've just been super lazy with the eBay shizzz.

    Finally finished! After some back-and-forth about what build kit was going on there, etc, I'm happy to show the finished product! This weekend is the maiden voyage, unless I can sneak out on Friday for a lunch ride...
    15.8lbs as it sits here, size 56cm. Post is a "Team" post that we made for Garmin, so it's the wrong color, and it's super-long, but I'll have a "stock" one on there shortly, which will cut some weight, maybe even sneak into the 14s!
    SRAM Red shifters/derailleurs
    TRP R960SL brakes
    Easton EC90 crankset
    Reynolds Assault wheels
    Easton EA90 Stem
    Easton EC90SLX bar
    Prologo Scratch Nack saddle







    Edited to correct the weight...

    That one's getting built as we speak...just waiting for the team-issue 3T bar/stem with the blue stripes. Still haven't decided what seatpost on that one.

    I think I need to swap out the brakes though, the cable routing/frame size doesn't work too hot with the TRP brakes I'm using. Their barrel adjuster is kind of "loose" in there, as in it doesn't thread into the brake itself.
    Thinking I'll swap them out for something else.

    Yeah, too loud I think. Updated pics below.

    Bummer about the parts! But they'll be there waiting for you when you're ready.

    It fits my "messenger" bag or a couple of bags of groceries. It's nice to be able to carry something on the bike rather than my back

    Hey guys, here's my all 'round commuter and road bike. Gets me to work and I do longer road rides with it as well. Gearing is nice, I average about 19-20mph on it comfortably. Nice rides everyone!
