my new cx commuter, i love it
I have to confess 3 of my 4 bikes are steel, but here is my aluminium Ribble bought of Ebay the other week.
My Toy .... Cannondale F5
CBoardman Team Ali...
and the winter bike is Ali as well. Saracen Tour 1...
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
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.
Here is my Alloy workhorse.
Now sports a pannier......... argh.......
New 'rear end'..........
You like to be seen in the dark, don't you!
Thats a cracker............very nice !
Paranoid........... for good reason....... heh heh........
Looks much better now
Will have to take a new pic of mine as it looks very different from the last one I posted-
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.
My Planet X SL Team Alu
It's been lightly tweaked since this pic was taken...
Aluminium is my material of choice -
Nice bike SJ - Campy rear wheel and Shimano front, isn't that a bit like mixing cross-ply and radials, is it safe?!!
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!
