    Here's my new beauty:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    1995 Yeti Road Project
    1" threaded Time carbon fork w/ King headset
    San Marco Yeti Saddle
    Full Ultegra 10spd/double (except brakes, which will come later)
    Bontrager Select wheels(got them from a friend, will upgrade later)
    Deda Bars, Syncros post, Panaracer tires, Bontrager Ti QR's

    I love this baby! It is my first road bike, so i cant compare it to much, but it is so quick and nimble, and surprisingly comfortable for being Easton Alu.

    The only things i plan to change is to get Ultegra brakes after Cmas, a nicer stem cuz i think the profile stuff looks like junk, and eventually upgrade the wheelset, but im not really in a hurry for that..

    Thanks, I really like the Yeti also. One day I will be able to ride it like it was meant to be ridden.

    Here's my steel single.
    Seventies era Gitane Tour de France Professionale.

    That saddle on the BMC looks medieval.
    I agree, nice Yeti.

    It's a flip-flop Surly hub (built by the Path).

    Which road bike do I post? The plush Scott road ride, the fixie (with a flip flop hub so I can SS if I'd like) Specialized, the track bike (gotta love Bianchi, specially the cheleste green), or the Felt I want to sell (cause there's no more room for mtn bikes)?

    I think I have problems...I need to get to BA (Bikes Anon)
