    Here are my latest rides. I mostly ride the Gios as a fast rec. rider with aspirations toward racing (campy equipped). The Raleigh is my rain/touring bike. Bike is a solid machine that I took on a 4000k tour through europe last year. good times on both. [​IMG]

    The most beautiful bike in Amsterdam :)
    A Ger(actually a Ridley Pegasus), custom painted to our design (me and my gf). It's inspired by a Serrotta I saw.
    Group: Chorus 2004 (I love that new crank, straight out of the 2003 Record)

    Training Wheels: Mavic CPX33 + Chorus hub + 32 DB Black Sapim spokes

    Competition Wheels: Ksyrium or Eurus, dunno yet. Let's see what the financial status is next spring before I decide.

    Misc: Aspide saddle, Bombshell Carbo stem, Deda magic Stem+Bar

    Look PP396 red/black/yellow (chosen over A5.1 because of the color, HEH)

    So far, I love it - only have ~40 miles on it, though. It just felt "right" when I test-rode several bikes at my LBS - even ones 50-60% more expensive. The research I did online reinforced that the BA was a good choice for me at that pricepoint, given its frame geometry and my torso. I've not discovered anything yet to make me feel otherwise.

    I am sorry I have to say this, but you asked for an opinion:

    -> I think BMC bicycles are ugly

    I'm sure a lot of people will disagree, tastes differ (and thats a good thing)

    *Awwww.... meanie*

    It's even Metallic red :D

    It is loosely based on a Serrotta I saw. Perhaps noone dared to say it to me, but most people think it looks pretty cool :)

    Tastes differ!

    The big plus for me is that my bike is pretty unique. Noone else has a Ger (oh call it Ridley if you want, lol) with this paint-job :D

    -> And yup, uniqueness is one of the great things of those BMC's. They are unique. I am sure if I saw one in real life I would be milder.

    well, i dont have a photo of my mountain bike(I use it as a road bike, ok ;) ) but its nowt fancy to look at.It's an old Timberline GT which has a black and blue splash paint job, black mismatched forks(want suspension), a dysfunctional back brake and a dodgy gear lever. Oh and cannibalised bar ends.
    Is a fast performer tho with a 7 speed block!
