Whilst I do like looking at all of the Ti bikes over in the Ti Club topic.......I don't own one, so thought it was time we had a Steel Bike's Club.

I'll start the ball rolling with my pride and joy......

    My 753 Team Panasonic (yes, the wheels don't match. But it's what I had at the time, and they "roll well"

    On 25mm Gatorskins, this is far more comfortable then my CAADX on 35mm Hyper Voyagers. So much so, I'm thinking about getting a new steel frame to swap with the 'Dale

    Thanks, pic was taken on the way up to Molls Gap outside Killarney, Ireland. Hence the big ring fail for the photo :roll:

    My long gone and sadly lamented Mercian Audax.

    35358431875_4ca06c8398_c.jpg

    Bought in 1996 and sold in 2010 when I thought a new bike itch would be scratched with a Specialized Alu. Sold on Ebay to a hipster type from London. Probably ended up as a courier bike

    I've posted my Ron Cooper here before but it turned 30 years old just this weekend, so...

    Another Rourke - custom build 853 from 2015, but all components are as pictured (well, when you've got perfection!). Very nimble little runner, and of course red is much faster.

    Not a great picture, but not the worst either. Another steel bike in the pipeline - Genesis Equilibrium disc to use as the winter/bad weather commuter, so this can be packed up in cotton wool for the darker months (which seems strange saying that on the longest day!)

    Ooh, I like that Ron Cooper, nice and clean looking.

    Here is my Mercian, posted before but it still looks nice:

    SDC12803.jpg

    Usually pick it for the longer rides, like 200 and 300k audaxes and, although the standard double can be a bit of hard work at times, it does seem to fly along on the flats/rolling terrain. It is about 20 years old with some crazy carbon lever Record STIs that were new out at the time. Makes me laugh the concept of super lightweight shifters on a 653 steel framed bike. I inherited it from my FIL so prefer to keep it roughly as it came though, albeit wheels have been changed, etc. Also had to increase stem length (up from a 100 to a 125) and it is now perfect in terms of fit. Unfortunately the bars are now stuck in the headset and slightly off by about 5mm but I am ignoring that for now, no big deal as I don't need to change it. Internal routing for the back brake which was probably a new feature at the time.

    You need to use the BBCode mate. Select the 1024 option mate.

    Here my Ferro when I unboxed it. Now it doesn't have the fenders and I changed the saddle for a more comfy Charge Spoon, also in brown. It is a fantastic ride and I am loving it more than ever.

    My new wet/winter bike, taken after first shakedown ride. Set up ok, a wee bit of front knee pain after 35 miles - hopefully just a wee saddle adjustment required
