My first post here, after joining a day or two ago. Over the years, I'd drop into this site occasionally, but never got around to registering. Thought to give it a whirl.

Photos of my main ride (hopefully) attached below. Every forum does it differently, and WW is no exception. My Extralight hails from '94, although I managed to snap it up on eBay in about '06. I initially planned to make it a display piece with period-correct Dura Ace and such, but it rode so nicely (with some well-used Dura Ace 7400 STI) that I decided to make it a modern build. First with 7900, then a couple years ago with the 11 speed you see here. Always liked quill stems, so go easy on me fellas! Weighs in at 7.5kg (around 17lbs) after yanking the lights off. Carries a little weight in the saddle, stem, and of course the oldish frameset. :beerchug:

note: I guess I could use some help posting pics...

I am but no means an expert at posting photographs. What works best is a photo host such as Flickr or Photobucket, I use the latter.

Welcome to the forum and definitely get some pictures up of that "old grey metal" bike!
