Nishiki Beta? Used to have one with 650s for crit racing... fun little bike.
www.wattagetraining.com[/quote] I remember Gerard posting a question to ST asking for our impression of this as a possible cage location for the at that time soon to be released P2C. I remember responding that it was good brainstorming, but wouldn't be good in practicality. Imagine me telling Gerard that... I feel even dumber now as this looks pretty awesome and aerodynamic. I believe I saw this frame from a discount online shop recently for $279 if memory serves.

Not as nice as a lot of bikes out there but the parts are all top of the line. Still have to add A K force carbon stem and Profile carbon wing and aero bars. Wheels are FP60's with decals taken off. Paint on wall is the result of having a recyleable can lid an spacle bucket lid laying around and nothing to do at 12 A.M.

And yes, I live in a dorm room, have not yet cut my steerer tube, and my seat (while not too high) is probably pretty well worn and on its last legs.

It started life as a green LeMond Reynolds 853 bike with all black components. Hated seeing the name LeMond 11 places on my bike everytime I went for a ride, so I stripped it down and painted it in my workshop. Then decided to switch everything over to silver, which was a lot of fun, and now it kind of reminds me of my old Bridgestone RB-1 (dead-on geometry). Fast, but with a little sense of style. Sorry about the quality (or lack thereof) of the picture - there's 10" of snow on the ground, and I decided just to snap a few before a spin session.

Old school carbon fiber. Some guy named Scott rode this bike to 2nd place in the 1994 Ironman. I wanted a 650 carbon bike with dual bottle bosses, a 50cm TT and a 13.5 HT and could not find anything in the market that fit the bill. Yeah its not aero, but it fits perfectly, is pretty light (17 lbs), climbs like a dream and is super comfy - even more so than my steel Serotta CXII which i found surprising. I know 650s are out of favor but I think they still have a place on smaller frames like this one. Enjoy.
If somebody named Jacky had driven an old car to second place at the 24 hours of le mans that would be a priceless collectable.
