Way Cool Ride WVU! Very Retro 80s Green. The "ShimErgo" set up is spot on, I used it on my son's last two bikes (road & CX) and it gives the best of both. He was the NC State Champ for the Crit and in CX for his age group last year, so it definitely works; and the ability to take apart the levers when they get clogged with sand or mud is key, as well as the ability to use the lever Q/R button to open up the brake pads while riding without disconnecting any cable hangers. If I hadn't already SRAM'd my CX rig, I'd be riding it myself, and am contemplating switching over my project CrossHairs to ShimErgo and racing it this season. Keep the Rubber Side Down! 8)

Here's my "new to me" '05 54cm Roadie. Candy plum over charcoal, Reynolds ouzo fork, Campy centaur 10 speed, Thomson seatpost, Mavic Open Pro rims with Record hubs, Specialized stem, Bontrager FIT VR handlebar, Conti tires.

The ride is so smooth and responsive... I love this bike.

This will be my pit bike in the upcoming season. I bought it NOS over the winter, and finally got to building it up now. It'll also serve a dual duty as a wet road/commuting/slow ride bike. 22.5 lbs as pictured! I do have lighter wheels for when it's at the races though.
The mini-v's have massive power and can lock up either wheel at will, with plenty of modulation between contact and flipping me over the bars!

Is this a custom blue or the standard blue metallic? And is there any difference in quality between the custom waterford paint and standard paint?

I just ordered a blue roadie and if it looks like this when I get it, I'm going to be very happy. :o

Here is my Sport with Rivendell's Jack Brown Tires. I will post a new pic with my other wheel set, DT R1.1's with PR2's for a completely different look.

Is your Alpha Q fork the new CS25 that takes fenders and bigger tires? Nice set up. Black on black always looks good. :D

Sharp eye. It is the Alpha Q CS 25 that allows fenders and wider tires. The fork is very light and stiff and rides very nice plus it matches the Sport's spec'd rake.

My new Crosshairs.

I have to say thanks to everyone at Gunnar for building such a great frame. It's not only fast and unbelievably fun to ride, but it looks great too.

SRAM group (mostly Rival, but some Force and Red mixed in), Avid Shorty 6 brakes, Ultegra/Open Pro, Time ATAC pedals, Thomson seat post/stem, Fizik Arione, Salsa bars.

Sorry for the indoor pics... I haven't had a camera with me when it's light out yet.

I also uploaded a close up of the paint if anyone needs another look at the Orange Glow Over Sterling. It's super sparkly!

That was the standard Gunnar Blue. I have since had it stripped down and powder coated Candy Blue with metal flake. Many other changes to the Rockhound. The old crank was a Profile Racing tubular CroMoly (very similar to the BMX cranks they make).

Here is my 54cm Roadie. I didn't care for the Roadie sticker so I decided to have a bit of fun - sorry Richard but I endearingly call her the "Groadie Roadie". Victory Circle Graphix made up the matching stickers for the top tube and fork. Best bike I have ever owned, and the titanium fade to charcoal paint is perfection. Thanks guys....

Also thanks to Mother Lode Bicycles in Sparks, NV for a great build and service. Just plain terrific.

To save for future reference, I'm adding the Magic Blue with panels photo. I love the panels on this one. Makes for a classic look.
