Hi all. Doing the intro like we all should have, i have been a watcher of the site for a while and im getting nearer to the freak side of weight weenies than i like. but thankfully im 16 so i cant afford anything. Anyway im mainly a roadie, sprinter generally. but i do enjoy a good fixie ride, and especially mountain biking (im a freak on a single speed as well). in the family we have lost count of bikes. but here is my favourite. :D

Look sharp. Welcome.

At 16 y/o, I recall wanting to put Ultegra on seriously ancient Centurion something or other. The bike was old then, much less now! I think you're way ahead of the game with your bike(s).

Hi everyone,
Long time reader, short time poster. I'm located in Adelaide, South Australia. Mainly a road rider and when work permits, race as a veteran. My main bike is a 2007 Cannondale Synapse Carbon SL1 with Dura Ace 7800, SLR saddle and Looke Keos. Wheels are Enve 45Cs/CX Rays/Alchemy Elf/Orc. As you will notice, I am quite tall - the frame is a 63.
