Lets see your Carbon bikes

Inspired by Nicks thread, lets see some nice carbon bikes. No mixed materials, or maybe that is ok too

I will start

Very nice! How do you like the ride? I have one of these waiting to be built up. Just waiting on the group set to get here for the build. I had a chebacco that was too small for me, but loved how well it rode. It inspired me to find a Parlee that was the proper fit.

I have two carbon bikes, an Argon-18, and a Focus Izalco.

The Focus never really got ridden much, probably because i built it with a bunch of parts bin stuff that never really shifted perfectly, and i never got the front end fit dialed in.

i think this summer i am going to completely rebuild it with some new parts and get the fit correct and put some miles on it.

Its a great bike, it really is. Super comfortable, stiff where it matters, climbs well. I am very into it. Also its so well built, paint job is quality. I understand why people love parlees.

Yes Parlee makes a top level carbon bike. I've owned carbon bikes from cdale, trek, giant and guru. None of those road as well as the Chebacco. I think the liveliest was the supersix evo, but still prefered my steel and ti bikes over it. I have high hopes for the z5 and I'm pretty sure it won't dissapoint.

My 2006 Cannondale Synapse Carbon 2 ...which now lives at my parents' house in Tucson AZ so only gets ridden one or two weeks out of the year.



Pic is from when it was brand new. I have long since added clipless pedals, changed the bars, lost the gigantic saddlebag, and removed the dork disc, in case you were concerned.

Let's see them? OK... Lugged Bianchi 928, not sure what year. 5800/zondas/stages. Good enough for racing but nothing fancy.




Calfee Tetra Pro, 1" Columbus minimal fork, not sure of age, currently equipped with all black fenders and a k-edge mount. Weighs 19lbs with full fenders. Goofy looking perhaps by modern standards, but it's quick uphill and ridiculously comfortable. Pardon the pic quality.

2001 B-stay C40 with Record 10
Alas it is too big for me and so will go on the block

That's not goofy, that is awesome. Like! Comfy and climbs well are great attributes and it's age only makes it more special.
