    I have to confess 3 of my 4 bikes are steel, but here is my aluminium Ribble bought of Ebay the other week.

    Very nice Shaun!

    I don't think you've seen my Cannondale? I don't ride it much these days because it's gearing is a bit high for me on the local hills at my current weight.

    I think good quality aluminium still has a lot to offer, though I would like to try riding good Ti and carbon fibre bikes one day.

    My day to day commuter. Spesh Secteur Elite 2010

    5339651596_eb315464fe.jpg


    Has now done near 7000 commuting miles.
    Has needed new Bottom Bracket, new cassette, new chain, new middle chain ring (though changed the whole cranckset to 105). Have also changed the stock Tektro brakes to 105's. Oh yes, new wheels also...pair of RS20's. I work the beastie hard in all weathers.

    I do like the look of the Secteur's - Spesh have pushed this design with the hydro forming of tubes, very nice.

    Alloy frames/components are often as good, if not better, than carbon, used correctly. :biggrin:

    Nice bike SJ - Campy rear wheel and Shimano front, isn't that a bit like mixing cross-ply and radials, is it safe?!! :smile:



    Cough, apologies for posting the largest photo in the world, hope ColinJ doesn't spot it, I know he's a bit touchy about that sort of thing! :blush:
