Corsa Record.

I Drove down to Tucson today to pick up this marvelous unknown bike. The frame has been repainted to a purple/yellow from it's original yellow (as far as I know) and it has nice Campagnolo dropouts and Fork Ends. My guess is this was a fine racing bike in it's day (it originally belonged to a pro).

I got the whole bike for a slick $600. Why so much you ask? Well, the Delta Brakeset alone would have cost me $200-300 and the titanium freewheel goes for ~$200. The brakes are why I bought the bike btw :). Not that I will be reselling this group, it's a keeper. Campagnolo C-Record Version 1

I'll add nicer pics tomorrow. time to take her for a ride!

It's been a while.

I've been building up a 2010 Specialized Tarmac SL Pro these past few months. It should be finished in a week or two.

Outfitting it with some SRAM Red :)

Stay tuned!

And here's a few bikes that have come and go. All beautiful but none of them seemed to fit me:

San Fran Bike

Copped this while in millbrae during spring break. Its a bit big but it looks pretty rare. I haven't been able to find an exact match for it but it may be an early Zipp 2001. For now I call it the Zipp Xtrem. Has a mix of Dura Ace 7400 and other stuff. Its a sweet looking bike for sure.

Sadly it's stuck in Millbrae til summer.

dont mind the saddle angle :)

Trek Y-Foil Y66

I got this sexy beast a few days ago for sexy as $550. I would keep it but it is a 62cm!! The triathlete I bought it from was 6'5" at least. Its a clean ass bike and I stole every single one of the components. Dura Ace 7700 everything now going onto my Cervelo P2K along with the CLINCHER Renn rear disc. Currently selling the frameset on ebay and it got a bid @ $400 in 4 hours. Hopefully I get $550 after costs so I can say I got everything for FREE. That would be heaven.

Update: I sold the frame, front wheel, and crankset for 630 after all shipping costs. Yay.

Here We have a near perfect condition 80's Cilo Swiss bicycle serial #88486

Made in switzerland with entirely shimano 600! including derailleurs, shifters, crankset, pedals, headset, and hubs. Sadly, most of the tubing sticker is peeled off but it looks like columbus steel. The lady I bought it from said she only rode in 3 times when she bought it ten years ago and I believe her. The handlebar tape doesnt even look used and the turbo saddle is looking sexy. The tires were dry and old but had that extra rubber on it like those new tires. I pumped them up and they hold air! Just needs a tune and it's ready to go. Can't wait to ride her.

Copped some Nike cycles shoes on CL today because they came with speedplay pedals. Finally I get to try out the speedplays that came with the cannondale! Sadly the shoes are a bit tight (size 10) but it's so much easier to clip in and out.

I am thinking about selling this bicycle btw: DANIEL KIM if you're reading this, come buy it!

Made in China, its called the Forever
Probably the smallest ratio ever, but it gets the job done
Peep the rear drum brake.

Also finished fixing up the Cannondale: new tires, cables & chain (still needs bar tape)
