    The Yamaguchi stems are some of my favorite bike components.

    Default 1987 50th Anniversary Paramount.

    This was mine for a brief while, and I regret selling it to this day.

    Default Pink is perfect

    Everything about that bike is perfect - it even has my favourite saddle of all time. Awesome.

    Now if I only knew how to ride a fixie.

    72 Paramount track with 74/5 team decals, I have the original saddle (very rough) and tubular wheelset but I commute on it regularly so the clinchers see a decent amount of use


    86 Paramount, 7 speed Chorus group currently though switching it out to a 6 speed Nuovo Record group, my favorite ride which I easily put the most mileage on out of the 16 bikes I have

    Default usually just lurking

    I usually just lurk to check out everyone's machines. The Waterford thread is a little short so I thought I would throw a couple of my latest out here for your viewing.

    I love looking at everyone's bike pic, so I will toss mine in also. Just built up this Waterford RS-22. Only 2 short rides, but it seems pretty sweet

    Default racks

    I've only had one opportunity to used them loaded on an overnight trip with my kids and they worked great. They kept the weight(50lbs) nice and low on the bike and it felt really stable. The only thing I ran into was that the low rider attachments on the rear sit a bit forward and my heel hit. I made some brackets to move the mount point back about 2 cm. I have a 5 night trip planned for next week with my 11 and 13 year old kids so I should have a better feel for them after next week. The only thing I can think of as a negative regarding them is they aren't light. But I seem to have made that a non issue with the amount of extra junk I've hung on the bike.

    Ah Mark...thanks for joining us. You're blue/silver Waterford is a classy bike...nice choice(s).

    Have fun on your trip.

    Also, if you run out of room for your gear/bikes...just go ahead and throw them in the garage at the old house!

    I think you're building a pretty nice collection without any help from me.

    Wink My H2Oford, reborn

    After nearly a year lay-off from riding due to a deployment, I have just returned my 2005 Waterford to life. It was originally born looking like this: http://www.serotta.com/forum/showthr...ight=waterford. Working with Richard Schwinn, it was designed for and ridden in two Team RAAMs and numerous double centuries. Following my second RAAM the paint was in dreadful condition, and I stored the frame with the intent of having it repainted. While I was in the Middle East this past fall, winter and spring, my wife took it to "some dude in Spring Valley." I also took the opportunity to buy new components, wheels and saddle.

    JB got the bike back to me just over a week ago, and the LBS just returned it to me. I'm delighted to say the least, and I the visual package suits my tastes perfectly. Apologies for the crummy iPhone photo and the lack of a proper garage door. I'll get around to that later. For now I'm simply going to salivate and stroke it in unclean ways. :biggrin: First full ride will be tomorrow morning.

    Build is a combination of Record and Chorus 11. Wheels are Easton EC90SLs, which I wasn't going to buy until I stumbled on a deal I couldn't say no to. The saddle is a new Antares, and as a long-time Aliante rider I'll reserve judgement until I've got some miles on it.

    (Yes, I know my stem is too short at 120, the top tube slopes ever so slightly, the bars aren't the latest fashion trend, etc. I'm not too worried.)

    Cheers,
    Scott

    Thumbs up Nice!

    H20ford, reborn:

    Beautifully done.
    That blue color is simply stunning. The build is terrific. The fork looks great.

    This bike is all pure class and elegance.

    Great job. Post more photos, please.
