    Best way is to get an account (free) on a web hosting site (I use Photobucket) and copy the IMG tag and paste it into the forum.

    Good luck!

    911 Spacer police! Seriously your spacer stack looks like its beyond the maximum recommend by the manufacturer. You may want to check this out and also see if your dental premium is paid up.
    For my next trick I will now set myself on fire!

    Here's my 2004 Litespeed Siena 16.7 complete with pedals, computer and rpm sensor. The pic is a bit dark, perhaps I'll take one outside later.

    2003 Capella
    Full Ultegra 9
    Approx. 17.5 pounds (1300g frame, 1600g wheelset)

    I plan to get into crit racing this year on this bike. This is a 54CM; I usually ride a bit longer top tube for training rides, but this feels great for racing.

    2006 Tuscany - what do you think?

    just picked this one off ebay for $1650. it comes w/ ec90 slx and whatever else are shown in pictures. is this a good deal? i think it is. i am planning to build it up w/ all dura ace 7800 and maybe a pair of race x lite ti wheels.

    A fair price if it fits. The stack height on the spacer not only looks bad but I believe its higher than Easton's maximum limit. I would go to Easton's website and check.

    Ride Report!

    Pictures of the new Archon will not be accepted without a ride report- especially if the Archon in question has been fitted with a headlight, meaning it is surely seeing some major use.

    Apologies, my bad. How can i put it succinctly? Damn! No, not quite right DAMN!!!!!!! But first some reference, i'm a 'back of the pack' age grouper, pushing 45. Am in no means a strong rider but do enjoy riding as hard as i can, and i ride every other day.
    I just got the beast the day before and my report is as follows. When i first put it on my trainer for fitting, the most obvious characteristic is lack of BB flex compared to the VC'07. So much so that it gave me the feeling of impending doom. Yesterday morning was a shakedown ride and my first response was 'harsh'. Bearing in mind that these are the roads used in the past year on my VC, the road feedback felt very raw. Vibration came thru saddle, bars and cranks. I havent ridden it 'hard' yet, but it has a very firm feel in the pedals, tracking and surety in slaloms. It feels more confidently planted in the front then the VC. Changes to be made is a more pliant SP, A Ritchey WCS (25mm setback), maybe a Gel saddle. Claviculas/or other CF for the crank. Not sure if i should get Scapulas, but definitely CF bars. When i had the Ardennes, i knew what a 'noodle' was. With the VC, i know what a responsive thoroughbred is. The Archon, is some kind of purebred inspiring you to hard ride hard everytime all the time.
