    A bit belated entering this thread but I just noticed your late 70's Fuji! ....... did you finish the frame yourself or did you have done professionally? ........ I acquired a 1980 Fuji in a Garage sale a few years ago and I restored it adding many new/used parts and I refinished the frame myself but I was never able to get the correct decals for it ........... if you did yours yourself perhaps you could post your supply source.

    My old Fuji has carried me many miles now and it is delight to ride! ....... I look at newer machines but I will never part with my trusty old Fuji ......

    C'dale SuperSix are damn nice machines, especially the top end model that you have. C'dale and D-A is a good match, really like the SI crankset. I like the clean lines, white paint with the red decals. Simple, to the point and unpretentious. Too many paint finishes on high end road bikes these days are just tacky. Hopefully your abilities matches that of the bike's. Congrats on an awesome ride.

    :) I agree with you re paintjobs / decals.
    One colour with straightforward decals often looks the best - imho.
    For example; Colnagos with 'art' work all over the frames etc looks way too busy and a bit pretencious for a bicycle.

    I kind of like Colango's paint jobs...I'd like to get a C-50 for my next bike, but I can't afford one yet :(.

    My ride for mountains and longer adventures. Love this bike. I've had it for around six years now. This picture was from when I took it to France for three weeks, and happens to be right before I noticed the saddle had shifted from not having been tight enough. ;)

    My newest project. I replaced my training bike's frame. These days, I only take the LOOK out for certain rides, so I am on the training bike most of the time.

    Always wanted this frame, so when it was time to replace my other one, the choice was easy. I had always lamented that Cervélo hadnt again made the anodized black version since 2006, especially given that my other bike is also in stealth mode. This was the only paint job available this year. Thing is, once I got it in, all reservations were gone. Completely. Seeing it in person, I absolutely love this scheme and prefer it to the anodized black or anything else Cervélo has done with them.

    The only "problem" is that I had long been a Shimano rider. Years and years. Made the leap on the LOOK and put Campy on it and became an instant convert. I'm still wishing to put a set of Campy on this bike, but honestly, there's no real need for the investment at the moment.

    Havent had a chance yet to take it outside. Snowing as we speak. :rolleyes:

    Its carbon fiber with aluminum lugs. Its an older frame set from them. I absolutely love it. Someday, perhaps, a new one might be in the cards, but who knows. I can tell you if I ever get another CF frame, it'll be from LOOK and no other.

    My daily bike, my climbing bike, my rain bike. Changes since the piccie have been:
    1. Speedplays replaced with Look Keo Carbons
    2. Red elastomer instead of grey
    3. Record Skeleton brakes replaced with Mavic SSC
    4. 25mm offset mast replaced with 5mm offset
    5. Ruegamer bar/stem combo replaced with Easton EA-90 stem and Ritchey BioMax 2 bars
    6. LEW VT-1's replaced with Nine G 50mm CF wheels (Aerolite spokes, DT240s hubs). They periodically alternate with a set of 25mm Kinlin rims/CX-Rays/White H1 hubs.
    Next on the horizon: SR-11.
