First post on WW although I've been lurking for a couple weeks. Seems this is the place to have actual discussion about all things bike rather than another bike forum type site which unfortunately lends itself to bashing people for asking questions or voicing opinion (not me in particular, but it happens more so than it should).
The two bikes I currently ride (well, not right now since I destroyed my arm driving and ATV (quad) off a 20ft sand dune) are an '06 Trek X01 and an '06 Cervelo soloist team...
The X01 is awesome... about 1,000 offroad miles on it and about 1,500 on road miles on it in 2006, before the arm injury. I switched out the stock bontrager 46/38 cross crank for an FSA compact 50/36 crank to better suit it for on and off road riding, which is what I used it for the end of '05 and all of '06. Love the bike. So blazing fast off road.
1 day before I left for vacation (and unknowingly the end of cycling for me for several months.. damn quads) I finished my Soloist build.. first build... first true road bike ever (always rode mtn bikes). Got 5 test miles on it and now about 100 trianer miles (booo!) on it. Here's the build list:
Cervelo Soloist Team (56)
Wolf classic carbon fork
Full Ultegra 6600 10sp group
Ultegra 6600 crankset (53/39)
Ritchey Pro DS aero wheelset
Oval Concepts A700 handlebars (42cm) and stem (110cm)
Oval Concepts SLAM aero bars (just added)
Fizik Arione Ti saddle
Michelen Pro 2 Race yada somethinorother tires (700 x 23)
a couple bontrager tubes
some Tacx bottle cages
Speedplay zero's (the cro-mo's)
Cateye wireless computer w/ cadence
there's some cinelli bar tape
ummmmm.... oh.. some fancy salsa skewers (the ritchey ones were lost in shipment when I got the wheels back in april)
It's close to what you'd expect from a soloist I guess, but I built it myself with limited bike mechanic knowledge, so it kicks a$$
I'm dying to get back outside... hopefully sometime in november I'll be cleared.
Anywho... that's about it... bada bing bada bop betty boop. See you in the forum.
edit: bike weight is somewhere between 16 & 17 lbs... I don't have a fancy scale (yet) so it's an educated guess + the 'ol weigh yourself then weigh you and the bike trick
... I'm looking to upgrade the seatpost (to the carbon version) and the wheels... but I've got medical bills to pay in the mean time.
The X01 loaded comes in around 23lbs.. not really looking to drop weight there though. The soloist is the one worthy of upgrading.
