What's everyone riding?

I'm posting from East Coast US, and ride road, and light trails.

My roadie is a 1987 Trek 560, a nice bike for a not-so-small (210 lbs.) fella. 531, 105 components, Biopace crank..not a bad bike, though not exactly what anyone is racing on. The point for me is to just get outside. I also have an even older Schwinn World Sport that is my rain/light trail bike...it's got touring wheels to take the bumps and give me better rain traction, and I don't fret about getting rusted (I'd just buy another frame for $50 and switch everything over).

So, what else is anyone else riding?

I ride a Lemond Reno. I have only had it for 2 months. Before that I rode a Schwin Crossfit for 22 years. I am really loving my first rode bike!

Why not, Bob? I say go for it! If you haven't spent money on a bike lately, don't you think it's time? You work hard, don't ya? At least it's something that is healthy for you.

I'll say this...sometimes getting an improvement is not so much spending a ton as spending some time looking. Rummage sales, classifieds... Basically, old ladies that don't know how to use the internet are EASY PICKINS. :blush:

I ride a veloce-equipped Bianchi road bike. It's not that light to say I'm a climber, but then I weigh only 51 kg so overall it works out pretty light.

I ride the following:

For commuting, club riding and sportives: Blue (that's a US maker not the colour!) 4AL compact frame, with Campag Centaur / Veloce mix.

For light touring, utilty riding and occasionally for commuting: Planet-X Kaffenback (the old blue dragon style) with Campag Mirage / Xenon mix.

For XC and winter training: Titus Motolite2 FS frame with various scavenged components (Shimano XT/XTR, old Hope Mini-mono's, DT Swiss wheels etc.)

I also have a pile of components that used to be my 'beast': a heavy hardtail MTB that I used for training whilst I was in Japan. It's basically an old Merlin Malt 1 frame and a very old set of Pace forks, with a fairly new FSA single ring crankset. Available for sale if anyone wants any of it!
