    My 2006 Bob Jackson, from the NE of England.

    853 lugged, CF fork.

    Really need some newer photos! Now has a mix of DA shifters, Ultegra der's, SRAM Force crank, Mavic 10th Anniversary wheels.

    Bought because BJ was almost a local frame builder where I grew up. Also had another, back in 1972/73. It was far faster than this one, though my wife suggests that might be due to it being ridden by some skinny kid who regarded crits as fun stuff and sprinting as something to be done in front of anyone who was around ;)

    This one is a superb ride. No need to worry in corners, just think about the bend some, she's gone around it. With a high BB, mostly don't even bother to stop pedaling either. The geometry is much what I rode way back then, though a slight slope to the head tube and a small, yet still degrading, head tube extension take care of encroaching old age. She's pretty easy going over the rough roads of the Chicago area, despite the stiff frame and steeper angles I prefer, but I never have cared to ride long distance, so that characteristic escapes me.

    I started on buyin this frame by visiting BJ's store cum frame building workshop in 2005, talked over the few odd quirks I wanted in the geometry, then World Class Cycles in New York, their US agents, handled the rest. No instant gratification - started in mid 05, frame was delivered in February 2006. But its mine, and it fits me like I wanted. The colour scheme is also a one-off, unless someone's seen pictures and copied it.

    If anyone's wondering - the paint job incurred no extra charge beyond the chrome plated chainstays. Those rings on the seat tube are paint too, not decals.

    Good stuff in this thread, my thanks to all the contributors

    If someone will tell me how to make pictures that fit the requirements of this web site (something like 1280 by 800 pixels) I will post pictures of my Eisentraut. AND Bilenky said they are finished with my Bob Jackson and packing it for shipping now. So I will be able to post pictures of it with S&S couplings and a new orange paint job.

    I tried to post pictures of the Eisentraut before, but they are too big. I don't know enough about digital photography yet to know how to fix them. When I just reduced them, they got cut off.

    Orbea

    I have three orbeas, an 08 Orca, 07 Aqua and my newest addition the 05 Spirit. Its got the same geometry as the other two bikes and is made of Columbus Spirit steel, the same stuff Pegoretti uses....I have found that the super stiff wheels like MAvic K's go best with this bike. The Steel frame cuts the harshness out of the rims and the stiffness of the rims bring the bike to life.. Just my two cents..

    My Sachs 25th Anniversary replica and All City Nature Boy fixed cyclocross (with studded tires). I have been contemplating putting down tube shifters on the Sachs....

    currently have 2. A Guerciotti built with SLX New and a custom Proletariat built out of True Temper OS. Buy and sell plenty of bikes over the years these seem to be keepers.

    Used to be a 99 Lemond

    Is it still a Lemond if all thats left is the frame? Originally it was a 99 Lemond Buenos Aires in Yellow and the frame is Reynolds 853. I decided to keep her and upgrade her with a new powder coat and some new bits. So far so good. It's so hard to convey the paint job in a picture. She sparkles in the sun but is almost a flat color in the low light.

    Thank you! The colour scheme was originally red with white panelling - like my first BJ. In the interim, my beloved had this idea of forming a consultancy company - nothing grandiose, her brains and beauty, my coffee making skills - and chose orange and white as the company logo colours.

    So I got up with BJ and, as it hadn't got into the paint shop, they were happy to change it. That orange is definitely 'sunglasses essential' and different.

    Snag is, if I ever have it resprayed - which is an attraction of a steel frame - it'll really have to go back to England if I want to keep the pattern in different colours. Waterford will do restoration resprays on BJs, says their website, but they charge $60 per masked-off paint line. Will let you work out the cost of that seat tube yourself

    That BJ of yourse - any chance it was red with white panels, mostly Campag Nuovo Record and was once owned by someone who lived near Doncaster in England?

    Okay, being silly there ;) In the meantime, the attached is one of the front rooms in Bob Jackson's retail section - they own an entire building. Downstairs front is their bike shops and a couple of other village stores, back of downstairs and the entire second floor is their building facility. They have their paint shop in there too. Every frame in this room of built bikes and framesets is steel.

    Feel free to drool a little

    Regards

    Sorry folks - an attempt to edit / rotate that shot caused them to do strange things in my initial post.
    This possibly qualifies as a second post now...

    The current BJ frame is what Raleigh used to call a Mink Blue. I just dont like it and the frame needs a slight rust removal. I love orange as a color because one this thing is restored, I am keeping the components AND everyone knows, orange is faster. Look at Merckx ;-)

    Thats right, the only thing I might change would possibly be the BB, and of course the wheels. I am not a fan of sew ups.Otherwise, it will look rather, well, 1973/74 ish, which is waaaay cool by me.

    I am still stunned that the components work this well.
