These are the bikes I use and like the most. I do have another three, 2 of them MTB's which are feeling a little negleted.

2011 Traitor Exile repainted trfaiic light red and with a custom set of stell fork. Built up with Campagnolo Veloce groupset except for the cranks which are Centaur carbon. Wheels are a light weight DT Swiss/Miche build. I do enjoy riding it. It weighs the mudguards 22.6 lbs and as pictured 26 lbs. There are two tubes and infflator and three CO2 cartridges, tyre levers, tool kit in the tool bottle and an further two tubes and tyre levers in the small saddle bag. you never know after all.

A 1992 Trek 2300 with carbon main tubes bonded into alloy lugs and alloy stays and forks. Pictuerd it kitted out with a coomplete 1055/6 groupset which is now in a box as it now has 6600 crankset and rear mech and a durace 9 and sometimes a DA 10 speed cassette. I have kept the D/T friction shifters and firction shifting 9 or 10 pseed is fine and fun. I have built light a 1362g wheelset for it. Pictured it weighs 8.48 kg but it is now 7.9 kg

My other favourite is a 1980 or 81 Alan competizione with Campag 6 speed drive train. Nouva or super record cranksets, campag BB, triomphe rear mech and a super record front mech. The wheels are tubular wheels built by a well know builder in Ipswich back in the early 80's He built them with Wolber super Chamion tubular rims and Campag record hubs. Excellent lightweight wheels. I will post a photo's of this tomorrow.

    That's the nicest Trek I've seen for a while. I'm interested to see the Alan, you don't see many around.
  • The lugged trek is a really nice bike... I hope your spannering skills are better than your photography ones... :twisted:

    There is a reason why my business is not photography. In fact those are the best pictures I have of those bikes. I won't post the others they are even worse. I am going to try and take some more today.

    Well here is the trek in it's current spec with FC-6600 crankset, RD-6600 mech, cinelli Grammo Ti stem and dura ace 9 speed Ti cassette. That weighed only 158g in 12-21T. I like close gearing. Current weight 7.9kg.
