Perhaps. But I retired just before sunrise in Cali, only to reemerge shortly before your post. :D So a great way to start my day?

Yet, *somehow" Colnagos of present do not stand out the way say a classic steel Master did in those days relative to its then competition - it was overpriced, but nevertheless still offered a reasonable very good value for money. 


The only Colnago I owned was a used Master. Great memories. Much like the memories of girls I knew in school;)

I should go out for a nice 50 mile ride tomorrow afternoon; just 24 if I'm real busy, though. Sooo very sleepy right now...

"...At one point Andy said something to the effect of “if the weather were nice, you’d never remember this ride” and it’s true. At the bottom of the ridge, I thanked him for letting me ride his MX-Leader with Campy Record 10. He replied “Life’s too short to ride **** bikes”."

I kinda feel bad that I haven't been riding my road bike as much as I'd like the past 6 months. Further, I'm disappointed I haven't been riding the boards, either (Velodrome). Business has interrupted my re-certification process twice! Will start classes all over again in June. :rolleyes:

Road 16 miles from town back to the house yesterday on the Rail Trails in West Virginia.  First long (for me) ride of the season.   I was using pandora on my phone and a pair of Jabra Sport+.  The Internet went out half way through the ride, and the battery died on my headphones.  There has to be a better way ;)

 

Oh yeah, forgot to mention my ride.  2013 Raleigh RX 2.0 CycloCross ;)

Recent upgrades:

Mavic Open Pro / 105 wheels

Sugino Mighty 52/44 drillium crankset

Shimano 12-28T 7-speed cassette

SRAM PC-870 chain

Shimano 105 SL-1050 DT shifters

Shimano 105 BR-5500 calipers

Cool Stop dual compound brake pads

 

 

 

Looks like it fits really well.

My newish fully rigid carbon On-One Whippet hardtail frame and mono fork.

Has a mix of Shimano XTR and Ultegra, Spinergy, Hope, and Raceface Turbine and Next SL hanging off it.

I swap the tires to 1.1" slicks and it's my every day commuter bike.

Come in at a fraction over 8kgs.

that's beautiful!   i have a lurcher for my race SS bike and i love it to death, what a great deal on a nice carbon frame.  

 

is that the on-one fork?  i have a reba on mine right now but looking for a strong carbon fork, i was going to get a niner fork but i'd rather get the cheaper on-one...if it's stiff and strong that is

I may as well post this one too from the same ride as the last pic, about 0700. That car is moving about 45mph, and there's a fast, wet, gusty descent 300yd on.

 

 

This is a NOS C-50, with about 110 mi. Might be getting rid of it due to back injuries limiting flexion. I don't like the riding position with the handlebar high up, as it really screws with power delivery.

Why thanks!

Yes, it is the On-One UD carbon monocoque fork and it fits the Lurcher perfectly (I was looking at a 456 or Lurcher too).

It's much much stiffer than the 3k weave straight legged fork that On-One do but it's lighter - 600g. It still rides very nice though.

 

I don't bush bash but do ride some pretty technical stuff with logs and >1m drops with no issues.

I run about 25psi in tubed 2.4" tires and it's a perfect balance of grip and cushioning. I just got fed up with fork servicing as I ride every day. I haven't missed a suspension fork on a hard tail at all.

I do kinda miss my Santa Cruz Bullit though for the really rough stuff.
