    Waterford.  Damn.

     

    Just blinding! No need for reflectors.


    Needs more cowbell!

      I wouldn't be able to ride it...I'd be afraid to sweat on it!

        Hmmm...I'm sorta lovin' steel, right now.  I'm borrowing a friend's Salsa Ala Carte until I can get a mountain bike of my own.  It's too small for me, but really nice.  I happened to discover that the Salsa El Mariachi 3 29er would likely work for me in either the XS or S, so I'm contemplating that one, as well as the Cannondale, too.

          I saw my first Renovo at a bike ride this morning, so I checked out their website when I got home. http://www.renovobikes.com/ 

           

           

           

          I saw an R1, not this one.

            Aren't they something?  My hubby first saw one a few years back and was speechless.  He's got a thing for bamboo bikes, too.

              I think it was the nicest bike I've ever seen.

                wow....

                 

                (that's all i got... well, that and a little drool)

                  I saw my first Renovo 

                   

                  Nice. I wonder if the owner also drives a Morgan

                   

                    One of my wife's coworkers just got her new custom Circle A cross bike yesterday. That pearl white will get very muddy this fall. 

                     

                     

                      This is a couple years old but I just stumbled upon it. SHIV tandem

                        That CX bike is a thing of beauty...but that tandem...hmmm...I don't know.  Is that actually in production?!

                         

                        Salsa updated their site to reflect the 2013 models, today...so now I get to ogle my porn every day until my bike arrives in a month or two!

                         

                        Today I briefly considered pulling the trigger on the 2012 model, since I could probably have it in a week, but the more I think about it, the more I think I'll be happier with a Shimano triple than a SRAM double (and this is coming from the woman who swears by SRAM doubles on her road and CX bikes).  I don't like the SRAM triggers, but I'm not certain that I'm sold on the grip/twist shifters, either.  I rode a friend's Shimano 29er around a parking lot today...it has the exact same shifters that the 2013 El Mariachi 3 has.  I really liked them.  Shifting onto larger rings in the front took a lot less force with the Shimano than with the SRAM on my current bike.

                         

                        And...the red and white is just plain hotter than the green and black, so it's added value! Big grin

                          Nice. Hopefully it arrives early. I don't think you will regret waiting.

                           

                          I noticed this 29er recently. It looks fun.
