Just to give some life back to thread here's a question to you all :

If you had an unlimited budget 1 or more bike(s) what would you buy?

Here's the vid that goes with the pic. I'm still running a couple pages behind, I guess.

I would build this up with Campy Record.

Why not an athena? Or maybe an old 10 record...

UPDATE :

 

I've sent a mail to the guy in which I told him what I thought of guys like him (in a very distinguished manner I must say) and he replied saying that I'd better go **** myself

Yes, Athena would be fine. Just something about a red Colnago that makes me want to ride?

YUsta-be. Got it NOS quite a while ago from RA for >$1000, my 2nd Colnago. Real Columbus tubing btw. All current stock is something else.

Well in my mid-twenties I had a Record/Standard Master combo. I did need it to emotionally traumatize fellow riders on PCH or club rides. Now I have spent my money on other things. I actually wish I would have sent my Colnago back to Ernesto to have it fixed and repainted instead of selling it when I tweaked it.

 

It was SLX Diamante. Who knows I may spring for another some day?wink_face.gif

 

I know you must be in a serious love affair with yours!

State of the Art forever and ever. I bet that thing turns heads too.

Yes, wish I never sold it. I looked at the current prices of the non-Columbus Master xl's when I wanted to replace it, and couldn't justify the cost.

Bit of back story.. (Click to show)


 

 

A month or so, I noticed a loud creaking sound coming from my 17" 2012 Jamis Exile Sport. Come to find out, the area on the frame, just below my seat tube clamp had a a crack in it, about an inch long. So, I took it to the bike shop where I bought it. Thankfully, Jamis ( and I'd imagine any decent bike company ) has a life time warranty on their frames. Ben, the owner of the bike shop sent the frame in for a replacement. After he explained the process of what was going to happen I said that I really appreciated his help. He then asks me "How will you be getting back and forth to work?", since he knows I used the bike to commute. I said something like "I guess I'll just go back to bussin' it, or have my wife drop me off". Well, I guess this wasn't good enough for Ben because after I had left his shop and gotten around the corner, he called me up and said that he may have a loaner bike he could offer me until mine was replaced. I was a bit stunned, to say the least. It turned out to be a steel road bike of his own. It did take some getting use to, specifically, the down tube shifters. So I road that little rocket for about 2 weeks and really enjoyed it. The wife and I came into a bit of money so I told her, I had to get a bike like this of my very own. After some contemplating and a bit of persuasion from one of the bike store sales guys, I purchased a 2012 Salsa Cassoroll single speed. It's not set up how Salsa would have had it ( eg, Surly hubs, Specialized drop bars/stem and my Shimano 540 SPD pedals ), but I love it none the less. Yes, I did give Ben back his bike the day I purchased the Salsa

 

Fast forward about a week and a half and Ben calls me up and told me my Jamis was ready to ride! I was excited beyond words. I missed my monster!

 

I was expecting my bike, but only a new frame. I was blown back by what I had received. It was my wheels/tires, fork, crank/pedals, cassette, seat post and saddle. Everything else was new. Oh, and the frame was 2" bigger. It feels big, but better. Oddly, the biggest change I felt was the handle bars. From a riser to a flat bar.

 

What I started withHere's all the other parts I got.

 

Oh, and yesterday, ( Saturday ), I decided to go ( Stan's ) tubeless, on the Jamis. I will be trying it out tomorrow, thanks to the paid holiday off from work.

 

 

 

Here are my babies. Sorry, for the picture quality. I was trying out the panoramic feature on my HTC One. Weird how it got all blurry in the middle.
