Re: My latest Addition to the family

My latest Addition to the family.
A little old, but brings some high tech to the table.
A mid 90's Trek tri-2300 carbon with Shimano Ultregra/600 parts!
Weights approx. 20lbs! *

I got her from the Pawn shop yesterday, for a only $150. bucks.
I almost could not contain myself as I was getting it for that price!
I just saw 2 on ebay go for $600+ yesterday alone.

And the only bad part, I need to buy new tires, and griptape.
She is still mostly in tune.

Re: My latest Addition to the family

I'd say you need some pedals too. Nice find, I'd like to have a road bike.

I do need pedals too. Most likely Time Attacks since I use those on the mt bikes.

I thought about that Conq, but than I wouldn't be able to replace it w/any close to that for the money I could get for it.

A comp. bike would cost between 1200-1800 bucks.

So I will just be happy to have gotten a Better-than-Good deal for once.

Something close to that. Its why I was almost laughing when they accepted $150 for it.
Although org. they wanted $180. so I wasnt appearing to be pulling a 'fast-one'.

How do those do in the mud? *Everyone I know uses SPD compatible (or Egg Beaters) pedals on the dirt...

The Time Carbon/Ti ones sure are purty.

Re: My latest Addition to the family

I was just thinking this weekend I would like to get into biking. Something besides running and easier on the knees.

no

Awesome find! *I still feel a little soreness every time I think about the fact that I paid full pop for my Bianchi road rig (and its not from that tiny little seat, either).

Yep - pedals have to go. *I've got SPD's on all three bikes... getting out of the pedals has become an unconcious response and I'd hate to go through the learning curve with a new style of pedal.

Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

Re: My latest Addition to the family

Fantastic find. Well done.

Since my back op in May I've started riding again in very minor way but think my interest is going to grow. Your bike is of similar vintag to my road bike, Vitus 992 with Campg groupset. Got Looks on mine. Shoes useless for walking.

BTW over this side of the pond SPD's are commonly known as 'Spuds', as in potato. Same your side?

In some circles

Though if you aren't used to them, they are called 'embarassment devices'

I love them, they are the easiest I think to own.
Easy in and outs, Never a false out.
Great for beginners, its almost impossible to miss a clip-in.
As far as mud goes, it can not faul up your system.
the only mechanics are the tension wires on the top and bottem of the pedal, and the body is smooth so there is nothing for grime to stick too.
SpeedPlay 'frogs' are great, as well as Eggbeaters!

Best of all. No tension to adjust, just keep them clean and they'll keep you happy.
