    Thanks! I'm in the US, specifically California.

    Had a few minutes to whack on the headset and crankset today. Turns out the seatpost was a smidge too big at 27.2. Have a tasty Thomson elite on the way in 27.0 instead. Soma bars arrived but I think I'll swap them out with the bontrager bar on the Serotta because silver matchy matchy bits.

    Picked up a new project today and figured I would document it and my other bikes here, otherwise I'd never take any pictures.

    Starting with my complete bikes:

    1993 Serotta Colorado Ti
    Born the same year I was. Graced with Chorus 11 and Reynolds Assault wheels. Was planning to go threadless with a hylix fork, but decided against it in the end. Nothing planned for it other than changing the saddle back to a China carbon SMP copy, and a slightly shorter stem in the future.

    2019 Cannondale CAADX
    Bought this for the girlfriend, but made sure that it could be adjusted to fit me when needed :^)
    No real plans for this either other than going tubeless in the future. And a carbon seatpost at some point. Otherwise stock with 105 R7000 stuff.

    90's Specialized Rockhopper
    Haven't bothered taking a picture of this beater, will get around to it at some point. Pretty much stock from the day it was born. Threw on a Wald basket, possible fenders come winter.

    And lastly, today's purchase, also "for the girlfriend" because she "needs a road bike"...

    90's Ritchey Road Logic
    In a beautiful cobalt blue that transitions into a purplish color. Geometry similar to the Serotta, but with a longer top tube.

    Already have a plan and most components around for this one, just need to find the time.

    1. Chris King threaded headset - locknut in a mismatched color but fuck it
    2. 8 speed Chorus groupset and Vento wheels - pilfered from the Serotta's original build
    3. China carbon seatpost + Flite Ti saddle
    4. Soma Hwy 1 bars

    Just have to figure out what quill stem to throw on here. Thinking maybe SimWorks or Nitto UI-2. Thoughts?

    Also want a mountain bike, but no idea where to go with that thought.

    This seems like the right place to ask since I have no idea what I'm doing:
    Would the headset cups between a 1" threaded and 1" threadless Chris King headsets be the same? (don't own either, but a used threaded 1" appears to be cheaper)
    Alternatively, any recommendations for cheap, nice looking 1" threadless headset?

    Recently picked up this beauty. Colorado Ti.

    Will be switching to compact drops soon, but undecided on a few other changes. I have pre-2015 chorus 11 laying around that I can throw on, although the older components have their own appeal... upgrade or nah? Or maybe keep the cranks but upgrade the rest of the drivetrain? Also got some shallow carbon wheels I could throw on perhaps.

    I had that issue with mine as well, solved with a 1.5x1.5cm beer can shim. Had to spread the clamp area just a bit to get it jammed in there though.

    After some quality time with the bike, here it is in it's current guise. Ditched the china carbon seatpost for the Wound Up because it didn't cradle the SMP well and kept sliding. Switched to the Wound Up fork because matchy-matchy and because I didn't want to cut the steerer tube on the Look fork. Didn't have good reason to switch stems other than that it was $40 shipped and the colors matched alright.

    I used to have this bike in the same size, still regret selling that beauty. If only the seller was in the US.

    Buy it first and worry about payday later. Or message the seller and see if they'd be willing to hold.

    The bottle opener is stupid unless your bike is either flipped or thirsty
