    Thanks. I try to mix it up. And for now the Psychlo-X is set up for summer duty as a trail-a-bike tandem. There are some more, but I'm up to my quota for attachments.

    Default These have both been shown across the hall, but for anyone who hasn't seen 'em...

    Somebody said they liked an earlier green Spectrum. Here's a different green:



    Here's the around town errand-bike wonder:



    I'm not riding much these days - most days I do 5-10 miles on the townie, just getting stuff done. When I feel like RIDING, I grab the Spectrum. Still love the way it rides, despite being pretty out of shape and even slower than usual. But its still a blast to go out and hit the country roads around here for a couple of hours.

    I have another Spectrum (a bit more laid back, more tire and fender clearance, and with S&S couplers). And an orange Rambouillet like one showed earlier but set up as a fixie with cowhorn bars. I ride those more in the winter, but I haven't ridden much the last couple of winters. These bikes are getting 99% of the limited action these days.

    wow, you are a happy camper - you certainly know what you like.

    would you be so kind as to tell us how you view the differences between the vamoots sl and compact sl - how do you decide which to ride?

    :)

    Nice, nice. But, don't you have a few too many spacers on that carbon tube?

    Not sure if you mean as an aesthetic matter or a safety matterÖ As an aesthetic matter, I absolutely agree that fewer spacers would look mucho mas mejor, but I recently added a cm based on a bike fit, and now itís more comfortable riding in the drops. I could flip the stem, but thatís another aesthetic issue, and Iíd have to apply new decals and the purty Moots welds would be upside downÖ So, Iím working on my flexibilityÖ As a safety matter, Reynolds claims that 4 cm of spacers are acceptable; I currently have 3, so Iím within their limit. But I hear ya.

    To dave1215, I honestly canít tell the difference between the two frames in terms of feel. They are set up with different components (other than drivetrain, although the Vamoots is non-QS), so there are a lot of other variables. I got the Compact first and itís a size smaller. Iím struggling with the decision whether to keep it or sell it; I know itís irrational, but itís hard for me to bring myself to sell it.

    You honor your name and bicycle. Thank you for the kind and light-hearted response. My Moots is my favorite bicycle of all times. Enjoy yours in good health.

    couple things... first, regarding spacers. I think way too many cyclists are so stingy with the spacers that it leads to completely unused drops, so good on you for putting fit and usability before aesthetics. I have a relatively small saddle to bar drop myself so I am not as "aero" as I could be on the hoods, but it has enabled me to get down and comfortably stay in the drops for long periods of time. At a relatively wide 190lbs+, I get a significant bump in speed at the same effort when going to the drops.

    I have found that a handlebar height of 91-92cm puts me in a very happy medium and aesthetics be damned in order to get there. Usually quill stems can accomplish getting the bars up without looking odd. I am sure a positive rise quill stem is absolute heresy in some circles, but jebus it has made my Salsa La Raza (with a 120mm head tube) an absolute pleasure to ride any distances. I have set up every one of my rigs with very usable drops. :)

    Second thing... you could/should be a Moots poster boy. If I was running Moots marketing department, I would do a full exposť on you and your beautiful bikes. Do the Moots folks know you have such an impressive stable of Moots?
    Now, you Irish cops are perking up. That's two sound theories in one day, neither of which deal with abnormally sized men. Kind of makes me feel like Riverdancing.

    the spacers are fine. enjoy the bikes. let's not devolve into the cliched spacer thread when the gestalt on the bikes works.

    more bike pics!

    Ray, I'm loving the custom painted Wound Up on your Spectrum. Is that an XT derailleur/cassette setup? Looks like great wide-range gearing options.

    Everyone, beautiful bikes! Gotta love 'em. Figure I should post mine:

    Here's my everyday ride, which is becoming my race bike more and more:




    My current race bike, which might be on the way out...




    My around town commuter...




    And last, but not least, my ride around the banked oval in Carson...

    That might be the coolest looking Serotta I have ever seen, and here I was thinking you were petite.

    Chris Kvale Road. This is the bike from which I do most of my waving.

    Anvil Crosscut Offroad. This is the bike I'll ride in the thunderdome after the US infrastructure disintegrates completely.
