Although this photo is old and it no longer has these wheels or tyres on it and my daily ride to work is my Raleigh beater which I haven't photographed properly yet.

Hmm I've only just noticed, the trance seems tp have a longer wheelbase than the kona even though it's a smaller frame.

Thanks, it's a really nice springy frame and that geometry is just spot on for me.

I love that frame.

W4LTER, Thursday, 18 October 2007 21:28 (thirteen years ago) link

The extra mixte for your money is hilarious. Did you put that saddle on it, Dan??

Laurel, Thursday, 18 October 2007 21:31 (thirteen years ago) link

Hahaha no! It came pretty much as you see it. I replaced the back tire when it blew, and put my old kona's flats on it when I broke one of the pedals.

A shop I took it to once said it's a Japanese frame, but I have no idea what brand. The mixte bar was added by a previous owner.

Welcome our new arrival, 5.2 pounds, 58 cm long:

Even if I had a proper pic of my bike (rather than a catalogue pic) I wouldn't post it cos you mocked Trek road bikes on the dead squirrel thread :(

Mark C, Monday, 22 October 2007 13:26 (thirteen years ago) link

everyone seems to hate Trek roadbikes! I have never ridden one myself.

I hear a lot of dudes hating Cannondale too.

I'm happy with my no-name cycleurope taiwanese thing tho. Paid $500 for the frame (which was a total bargain in mah opinon). Columbus Airplane tubing.

Oh, it's easy.

Not saying the characterizations are true or fair.

Mocked for being luxury bikes-you sure you wanna lay that down, dude?(aka you see these in Masters races)
Seven, Colnago, Merlin

Mocked for being the only bikes wannabes/yuppies know (aka you see these in 4s races):
Trek, Cdale, Specialized, Lemond

Snark safe "cheap" mass market bikes:
Giant, Fuji

Putting tubulars on it makes it a less good winter trainer but this local dude who hangs out in a bike store sold me Rovals with tyres for $99

is that a ti quill stem?

dead precedents politics as usual (Hunt3r), Thursday, 26 January 2012 19:30 (nine years ago) link

Not actually sure. It is Ti coloured and pretty light. I should put it through the XRF at work and find out.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Thursday, 26 January 2012 20:34 (nine years ago) link

It was on eBay and it matched the Dura-ace shifters and the headset that came with the frame.

xxx heady xxx heady (haitch), Tuesday, 22 January 2013 04:46 (eight years ago) link

That's the one. I didn't have the £ for a pricier bike anyhow, or the chops these days. The frame's a good fit; it's a manly bike & I'm of the female persuasion, but with a femme saddle it's comfy enough. I won't get to ride it until March now, but I'll be training hard then. I've been dragooned into riding the Dunwich Dunamo :/

Nah, I got hit by a car over two months ago, I just picked up the bike from the police station--apparently they store your shit when you're taken to the hospital. Now I have to get it to a bike shop for a repair/replace estimate.

one month passes...

did you end up getting a new bike?

eh mec, elle est ou ma caisse? (ytth), Tuesday, 9 April 2013 05:01 (eight years ago) link

nine months pass...

My city ride. Bought from a dude in the valley down in LA, shipped it up to SF when I moved here. Swapped straight bars out for drops. New brakes levers/stem/saddle/seatpost/pedals, but the bronze chainring+calipers are original, same with the Suntour shifters and derailleur. This type of Suntour group has some kind of "auto-trim" function that happens when you shift front chainrings, according to Sheldon Brown.

Was tough for me to take the clips off, both for practicality and style reasons, but this is my main mode of transport and it's time for me to start wearing adult shoes sometimes.

Oh and definitely too small for me (every time I get on my road bike I'm surprised at how comfortable I feel) but I'm pretty emotionally attached at this point.
