Tell me how you like your bike please, and pictures are encouraged. I'm thinking about buying one for my daily commute and longer weekend rides, but wondering if the custom built frame is worth the cash. The lugged steel just looks so good...

Mine is an RS-11 that I bought used. It has older 8spd Mirage, that is in need of a 10spd Chorus Double. I can't even use the Proton rear until I do some kind of change. I don't have a stable of bikes or experience to compare, but I love the way it rides.

Where did you get that stand? It looks like it could come in handy.

It's called the Y stand. Most LBS's in my area carry
them, try asking yours. It is indeed very useful
for display, storage, and minor repair work.

Exactly where I got mine. Paid I think about 10 bucks for a used one at an LBS near me. It does come in handy sometimes.

Bought the frame use, put all new parts on it. Use it for training and racing. Can't see how anything else could be better.

No pictures, unfortunately. But I can tell you this: Waterford frames are beautifully crafted of the finest materials. And their saying "Waterford-The ride" sums it all up pretty well. I have a Litespeed Ulitmate, too. But for just having a fabulous time riding, can't beat the Waterford. They aren't inexpenisve, but you get what you pay for. My Waterford is a custom 2200.

I have an RS 22. It is a wonderful complement to my other bike, a TST Ti. My Waterford is made of 853 tubing and is light and fairly comfortable. I really like the lugged joinery and the simple good looks. Not as compliant a ride as the ti, but a wonderful alternative due to slightly stiffer, more springy ride characteristics. I happened to get mine new, built up, on ebay. I sold all the parts and put my preferred build kit on the frame and ended up paying about $600 for the frame in the end.
