    They're grand. Used them for about six months at this stage and they haven't broken or lost any bottles. Bottles do get a bit scuffed up in them though.

    I'll go ahead and get them then, I've yet to find a cage that doesn't scuff the bottles anyway.

    Yeah, most of the time I think it's road grit that gets stuck to them that causes the scuffing.

    Here is my current dreambike, I come over all funny every time I look at this pic:

    de%20roas%20idol%20white.jpg

    Unfortunately I currently own a Trek 5.2 Madone - boring! Perfectly good bike but so common, the Ford Mondeo of bikes.

    I also have a Santa Cruz Superlight for off road duties.

    The Idol's pretty sweet looking alright. I've yet to be sold on those integrated seatposts though. Would really mess with the resale value. Then again, if you've enough cash to splash out on something like that, you probably wouldn't care too much.

    I'm a huge De Rosa fan and am looking forward to the day when I can justify having one long term. Just before Christmas last I bought a 2005 De Rosa King X-Lite on e-bay for £950. It was the bargain of the century as the frame and forks originally retailed at ~£2,000 and this one had a full Dura-Ace group set (£650) and Ksyrium SL wheels (£500?). Before I even had it delivered I had a buyer lined up and so I managed to sell it on for a £1000 stg profit with zero effort on my part:) Even though the bike was stunning I simply couldn't turn down the money from the sale. The amazing thing is, I've since seen other used King X-Lite and lesser De Rosa frames (Merak, Dual etc) for sale at way more than I paid for the complete bike.

    Not an image of beauty, by any means, but its my daily cycling bread. Its an on-one il pompino. It may not look as cool as some fixies, but I like it. Dream fixie would be a EAI Bareknuckle or a Surly Steamroller. I also have a old Mercian frame in good nick which I'm building up as a 'conventional' road bike using classic retro components. More soon...

    I see yours has mudguards. It's amazing how many don't, isn't it? I mean, fair enough if you live in California, but in our poxy climate? I would have thought a rear mudguard was the minimum required not to end up with a sodden back every time the roads are wet.

    I've a few more alright, didn't manage to take many of the trails themselves as I never wanted to stop while on them. If you get any chance to go whatsoever go for it, it is absolutely amazing. Here's a few more anyway, they're not great because their from a cameraphone.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,819 ✭✭✭Alkers

    I like the seatpost design:) ,Why are specialized rounding crossbars on some frames now ?

    I prefer your frame tbh ?

    I actually like the way it looks but the wedge design doesn't seem great for keeping the post in place, it slips a bit and marks the carbon seatpost a bit too.
