Hello all,

I've been a long time lurker on the forum, and I've finally decided to post a few pics of my bikes. I've had the Paris for a couple of months (it replaced a Giant TCR full record). Though it's a pretty "common" ride on the forum, I have yet to see another one in Virgina DC area. :)

Paris build: Full record, 0G brakes, Easton Bars, WCS 4-Axis stem, USE Alien Post, SLR Carbonio Saddle, Mavis SSC SL wheels (with about 12,000 miles on them and still true), Conti GP4000 tires, Time RXS Ti/Carbon pedals. Comes in at 15.8 pounds with cages and HR monitor mount.

My Bianchi Pista Concept I've had for a year or so. It's my primary commuter bike that I ride the MUTs on. It doubles as my bad weather bike as well.

Bianchi build: Easton EC90SL straight blade fork (about to be replaced with a Planet X Track Fork with less rake), Cane Creek SL front brake, Sugino 75 cranks, Phil Wood track hubs with 17t rear cog, DT Swiss RR1.1 rims, Conti 4-Season Tires, SLR saddle, USE Alien post replaced Specialized post, WCS stem, FSA K-Wings have been replaced with WCS Classic bars.

Those are sweet rides!

I have yet to post pics of my '05 Dogma and my Turner XCE, which has been gathering dust. I hope I'll eventually get to it.

I've noticed the same, seems Pina is somewhat "common" here but in NYC, I have only seen one other.

Thanks. I took a few pics on my MUT ride on Friday after replacing the fork. The stearing is much faster with the 30mm rake vs the 43 of the Easton fork - as it should be. :wink: It was a frigid ride in DC though at about -4C. I rode for 3 hours but the digits were frozen when I got home.

I ride this as my commuter bike. Between this, my Paris, and mountain bike, I ride about 4500 miles per year.
