What bikes do you have in your stable?bigwaves
Dec 21, 2003 5:05 PM
With all the riding I do.. I never noticed what my garage has turned into. There are currently 5 bikes and tons of parts. What has your garage turned into?

1. Independent Fab - Deluxe for mountains
2. Richard Sachs - for just distance
3. Trek 5200 - for speed
4. Trek Town and Country - For the beach scene
5. Intense Tracer for the trails.

Here is what is in my garage.

Ritchey MT bike
Ritchey SwissCross - Used for commuting
Meridian 650c TT bike
Merlin Agilus road bike
Co-Motion Expresso road bike
Bilenky Aremet Tandem
Santana Triplet
Merlin Ti MT bike frame waitin to be built up

2003 Chrysler Town & Country LXI able to carry any of the bikes, including the Santana Triplet right up the middle without having to take the front wheel off. Problem is then I can't use the cup holder.

Actually the CoMotionis a buddies bike I borrowed for a visiting relative. But I think it fits me and I may have to take it out for a ride before I give it back. It is mostly Ultegra triple group with a Wound up fork. The fork is painted a House of Colors metalic yellowish orange to match the frame.

My buddy got the whole set up, complete bike, on Ebay for about $800

Dec 21, 2003 7:25 PM
tired just from reading your list: all of my "favourite" bikes are there.
could you compare the dream to the fina estampa and the dardo?
oooph..phew...terry b
Dec 21, 2003 8:43 PM
haven't ridden the Dream yet, still in the build stage.

the Dardo is one light, fast little bike. very nimble, very quick. and wild to look at (I have the orange and blue version.)

the Fina is an interesing frame - big tubes, like a tank, not terribly light but not a pig either. many will say it rides like steel but I don't think so. it's perhaps smoother than some aluminum on smooth roads, but it still rocks your bones on bad pavement. I like it well enough, but it doesn't grab me like the Dardo. its biggest asset is the aboriginal paint job - totally unique and unlike anything else you see on the road.

both are nice, but the Dardo is a heart stopper for me.
Dec 22, 2003 4:34 AM
casatis get around here so i may grab one sooner or later. want to try an aluminum rig, have been on a steel diet for a long time.
that's why I have a coupleterry b
Dec 22, 2003 8:39 AM
- wanted to try Al after years of steel to see what all the brouhaha was about. the Casati is a nice introduction - none of the bad comments apply and it's a sweet bike.

Question on the cost of the Bayliskilimanjaro
Dec 22, 2003 3:07 PM
I am thinking about saving for a lugged frame from a local builder a few years down the road.


Question on the cost of the BaylisDMoore
Dec 23, 2003 8:15 AM
Brian Baylis quoted me $3500 for the frame, with a delivery in an estimated 2 years. I figure that probably means more like 3 years, since Brian only builds 6 or 7 frames a year these days.

You can spend even more than that on a steel frame (see Moon, Columbine, or Ericksen as examples) or you can spend a lot less. Baylis is certainly up there in price, but if you go for really ornate lugs you could spend even more. There are plenty of builders out there who can build a really nice lugged frame for less money and much more quickly.

But an artist can't be rushed...

4. 2002 rocky mountain blizzard frame-853 steel, slowly being built up, bit by bit.
5. 2004 mondonico el-os frame-soon to be, or currently in the process of being, built in italy. full chorus group just waiting for it.

one of the stumpjumpers has to go, and i'm partial to keeping the rigid steel as an about town, commuter type ride, but the M2 just looks so cool, all black and yellow, i can't bear to sell it. so i'll probably keep them both.

Keep the steel, its a good SS platform. Sell the tin can and put the parts on the Blizzard. Beauty is only skin deep. :)
awww, but you gotta see it. best lookin' stump evah!rufus
Dec 21, 2003 9:09 PM
and the blizzard's gonna be nine speed, while the stumpy's eight. i might use the wheels with a nine speed cassette until i scrape the money together for a wheelset built around king hubs.

so far the blizzard has avid sd-7 brakes with sd-5 levers, a titec stem, raceface bar and seatpost, marzocchi atom race fork. the rest will be a mix of raceface, xt, and sram, with a king headset. and that oh-so-sweet maple leaf paint job.

Nice collection. So what's the deal with all the Axis and Voodoo? different sizes? colors? groups? tires? A different axis for each day of the week? heh heh you are twice as sick as me old man...;-)
Yeah, I should probably get remarried--that'd take care of it.The Walrus
Dec 22, 2003 6:49 PM
The second Wazoo ('97) was one of those deals that couldn't be passed up--$390, shipped, for the bike, which needed pedals, brakes and rear mech, all of which were in my parts stash. The third one ('99) was a frame/fork I built up to thrash so the first one, which was/is virtually flawless, wouldn't suffer the classic VooDoo decal eczema. As for the Axises (Axes?), the first one was so good, I just couldn't stop. I'd keep thinking of different things I wanted to try, but didn't want to mess with the existing bike(s), day I woke up, and there they were.

By the way, should Mrs. Badley ever get on your case, I'm available (for a fee) as an expert witness to testify that your collection is not at all extreme.

Dang, I just remembered two Carbolites and a '00 Wazoo I shoulda put on the "must sell" list....

Sure, Ill help you build that addition so you have room! The old lugged bike is a Mossberg I used to have on the trainer.BTW, considering a Steve Rex Zero compact with Joe Bell paint. Any comments on your Rex? Ill have to get rid of the old Cannondale. My wife makes me purge before I get an new one. Last time I got rid of a Colnago master, time before it was another Cannondale. Not much of a sacrifice...
Mossberg? As in, Mossberg shotguns? (nm)The Walrus

I used to have one, a 1976 fact, in spite of being somewhat heavy (or light compared to a Schwinn Varsity) and having some lateral flex in the bottom bracket, it was the best riding bike I've owned. Since losing mine, I've given some thought to having a custom bike made for me with the same frame angles, fork rake/trail, and tube lengths using better materials & dropouts. I've never met anyone who owned another...mine was orange in daylight which turned to an electric peach-red under evening streetlamps. If yours is a 21.5" model, I would be interested in hearing from you regarding measurements....

Center to center along the seat tube its 22.5 inches, just over 57 centimeters. This ones still got the headtube badge that says Mossberg, Little Falls N.Y. on it. Thought I would donate it to some big kid that doesnt have a ride. By the way youve described the color, I would have to say this is the same. Nice riding old tank...Im keeping the old Alfredo Binda toe straps though.
