Here's my recent cyclescam purchase:

Not been out on it much due to other commitments but hoping to change that, with a view to getting in to multi-sport events next year.

It's totally standard for now, besides having removed the reflectors. Have some Look pedals to add and a pair of dhb R1s to go with them.

    I like that colour way.

    Thanks. I have to say that it did influence my decision a little - it's almost a shame to ruin the look by sitting on it. I just need to sort out complimentary cycling gear... :wink: 8)

    Not a very good photo, will take a better one soon.

    Bought mine on Sunday and done a couple 16 milers on it already and loving it. I have some SPD-SL pedals for it as soon as i get some shoes. Need to let the funds recoup a little unless i find a decent cheap used pair or bargain new pair. My saddle bag and computer should be on this Wednesday so all set for some more miles now.

    Been looking on the bay for some shoes but not a lot in my size really. I usually hover around 7 - 7.5 UK for normal everyday shoes.

    actually its probably a good idea to have such a low gear on an intro bike....

    Nice,

    Do agree that's a massive rear cassette, heard good things about the Apex - hey if it's good enough for Bertie :wink:
