    I'm not positive but I think that it's now SRAM. Can anyone confirm this?

    SRAM owns (or is in the process thereof) the following brands:
    Avid
    Holzfeller
    Rockshox
    Sachs
    SRAM
    Truvativ

    The old parent company (ZF) also references:

    B&K Bicycle Co.
    4298 Mayfield Rd.
    South Euclid, OH U.S.
    44121
    Phn :216-382-9966

    for Sachs components for some reason

    We didn't see a picture of your old workhorse, but yeah you're right.

    Pretty much there are only a few dimensions to worry about...

    1. Saddle height and fore/aft position relative to BB
    2. Cockpit length (handlebar reach, stem, top tube length to saddle tip)
    3. drop to bars (handlebar height)

    My ride is a '03 Basso Coral with the '04 Veloce 9s group, Handbuilt wheels: the Veloce hubs laced into Fir net97 rims, FSA OrbitX headset, 3ttt bars&stem (BTW I love these 46cm bars- far more comfortable than the 42's I used to ride), American Classic post and Selle San Marco Ozono Race Gel saddle. Its a sweet ride and I can spend all day on it! I just wish I was able to:D

    I have been riding a Cannondale racer and I have a cannondale H300 dirt bike that I ride off road. Due to the fact that I hate my hands going numb and other things that you all are familiar with, I didn't ride much last year.

    Yesterday I found myself in Hastings Mi at the WizWheelz factory. I rode the TerraTrike TT 3.6 around the parking lot a few times. What a ride!That machine is something else. So I'll probably make the switch and get one of those. I have my two cannondale's and my wife won't ride anymore, so I'll be selling her H300 also.
    That WizWheelz makes a mean trike. It's a super machine and really made to last. That will be my next ride. :)

    to commute around the city (SF) i ride an oooold Shogun,old steel frame, friction shifters. It is my baby, i love it more than any other bike, and i ride it every where i go instead of driving a car (i dont have or want my license)...

    BUT...i have been getting more into going on long fast rides and just bought a Specialized Vita multisport. It has an aluminum frame, shimano 105s...its super light...it is really fun and fast to ride, and i just replaced the pedals with clipless, which are awesome (speedplay something or other)....

    ALAS...i will always love my shogun the most (first road bike has sentimental value i guess)

    When I was a student (way back in the 80's) I bought a Shogun Selectra just to get around and to ride for fun. This bike pretty much stayed with me when I started racing and I even took what I could off it when the frame was completely bent in an unfortunate incident with a car in 1994. After kids, it was hung up in the garage for several year, until I got back on and started to get fit. I loved riding that bike...

    Right up until 6 weeks ago, when I got my Specialized WSD Dolce Elite. Like landing on another planet, and other than tootling along the bike path with the kids, I don't think I'll ever go back.

    I have an Avanti Edge Comp series lol. I started triathlons a year ago and have been clocking up 200km a week easily and not on the nicest roads. I've never once had a problem and it is my most prized possesion :D

    i'm rockin a 2003 GIANT OCR3 (affectionately refered to as the GIANT piece of shit. can i say shit on here? hmm...oh well...) it's all stock except for an apparently down-graded saddle (i think it's a throw pillow, re-upholstered) and a new hanger for the RD (it's for a TCR! it's got a team ONCE logo! what an upgrade!)

    time to go give it some love!
