||2003 Bianchi Veloce M Alloy Pro
|Description: Purchased from original owner who put 1000km on it.
Reparto Course M Alloy Pro with Campagnolo Veloce Gruppo, Net97 rims.
Replaced the 120mm stem with a 100mm in spring '08.
Not the lightest road bike out there, but handles beautifully, feels very quick.
Previous owner told me I have to give it at least one race, since it's never been raced.

700 x 23C Continental Ultra Gatorskin - trainer duty, rear, 3,716 km

XC Mountain bike
|Description: Not much original on this bike.
Upgraded to Deore hydraulic disc brakes in '06.
Replaced the front wheel in '08 (taco'd)
Ultegra 12-23 cassette in '08
Continnental Traffic tires in '08
Major overhaul April '09:
- Shimano SLX Shifters
- Shimano SLX Front & Rear Derailleurs
- Race Face Ride XC 44/32/22 Chainset
- FSA ISIS hollow shaft Bottom Bracket
- SRAM PC991 chain
This has proven to be the perfect commuter bike. With slicks, it feels quite quick & responsive, with studded Nokians it handles most of what a Saskatchewan winter can dish out.
Came very close to replacing the bike this year, but rebuilt it for about 1/3 the cost of replacing it with something with similar specs.
