I have been babysitting some bikes for a friend, and since I know they are leaving someday soon, I thought I would take some pictures of them and my own bikes and share them with you.
Starting with the mundane, this is my roller-specific bike. Triple chainring, Shimano RSX, 7 speed cassette, crappy tires. Aluminum Trek 420. Not real pretty, but a workhorse.
This is my wifes Litespeed Arenberg. Shimano 105, sexy curved chainstays. Dont give me any grief about the rise in the stem as the upright position relieves tension in her back.
This is my Trek 5500. Number 863 of 1999. Full Dura Ace, Cane Creek headset.
Lance signed it for me at last years Ride for the Roses
This is my friends bike, a Colnago Oval Master. Full Dura Ace.
This short, foul-mouthed guy, Lances Comedic domestique, aka Robin Williams rode this one right up until my friend bought it at the Live to Ride gala auction.
This is the second bike purchased by same person at the auction. Trek 5200, Ultegra parts.
Signed by Treks most famous rider.
Its great having all these wonderful bikes in my garage. I smile every time I go out there.

|I'd be really tempted to strip that TDF OCLV and hang it up. I'm sure LA signs plenty of bikes, but there are only so many of that model to be signed. You may kick yourself some day if that signature gets blemished.
Just my opinion.

|Robin Williams is way cool, one of my heros. Him being one of Lance's friends tells ya something about Lance, doesn't it?
Niiice bikes. They look like they get ridden, too.
