The bikes are nice but the 2002 (or 1600, can't tell) is even nicer.
I still miss my 1970 that was in perfect condition when I got hit and rolled by some criminals in a stolen car. It gave its life for mine.

2007 vintage Cannondale Six13 Team. Great looking (IMO), great riding, great handling. Of all the bikes I've sold over the years, the one I wish I hadn't let go. At least it went to a Paceline member!

They are November wheels, WI hubs, CXRay spokes and Easton R90SL rims. So far so good, well built, stay true and behave like wheels should. One nice thing is my Michelin Pro4 Service Course 25 tires plump up to 29mm on these rims.

Ah yes, that one, is that great or what! It occurs to me that among the attributes of a great bike racer are speed, anticipation and patience. Cartier-Bresson had those qualities in abundance - as a photographer!

I was so proud after making the first side and then an old timer told me not to gloat until the second side fit properly. And of course he was there when it didn't and said Uh Huh, spit his chaw on the floor and walked away laughing. My first real experience in backlash on an old mill. BTW...The second try worked perfect. Nearly 30 years later I still like riding that bike!

Fast forward 20+ years and here's Uncle Bruce and I having fun on our collaboration mixed material BG specials. A fun project with a fun guy.

I've been involved with other mixed bikes over the years but these are my favorites.
I had one of those S-Works bikes. Mine had the purple tint in the carbon.

Just about the best-riding mtn bike I've ever owned. If it wasn't outdated by the time I got it from a buddy, I'd probably still own it. (1" headset, Mag21, etc) I stuck one of those Ti Specialized stems on that thing.

Need to dig harder and find pics of my old Reflex MTB with it's carbon wrapped aluminum main tubes. That was a great bike.

Here are a couple:



This one has been replaced by a newer version with a Lefty fork, but I don't have any good photos of that one built up, so this will have to do:

Here's a studio photo of it:



It was the first Lefty all-road bike that Firefly built. Shortly after they built this one, they built an all-ti one for Jamie, and I've seen at least one other on the interweb (the Klein fade homage).

I rode it last summer at D2R2. Not sure if you were there, but here it is:
