Bikes of this era. Was perusing ebay for a bit just now. There don't tend to be the 'odd brands' advertised at the moment. Looking for something NOT Trek/Schwinn/etc. Merckx? Maybe. Colnago? perhaps. Way pricey tho. :bluduh I'd love to have another Concorde. :nod Loved that bike. Ditto with another Battaglin. Didn't try the Scapins we were importing, but they looked good too. Maybe a little builder? Brew? Teesdale?

Optimally, I'd love to build my own bikes from the tubes up. :nod I don't know how to weld, braze, or even own a frame jig, so it'd be a tough thing to do. :baldy One of these days!

I had a beautiful steel double butted Lotus back in early 80's, Campy parts, god I wish I could find that thing, still forgot what I even did with it...

Here's the ulitmate Ultra racing Tandem! It's a hand layed Carbon Fiber Calfee with Topolino AC29 wheels, FSA carbon cranks and a mix of Shimano components. It's very light and very fast!!!

I am unloading my extra bikes. Each has been ridden < 200 miles and meticulously maintained by professional mechanics. Each of these bikes is as beautiful a piece of art as it is machinery. I wish I had room to keep them all. Further specifications and pictures available upon request.

Colnago C50 ($5700) - Blue carbon 57 cm, 10 speed Shimano Dura Ace, Ritchey carbon stem/handlebars, Mavic Ksyrium SL wheelset

De Rosa ($4200) - 1994 classic hand welded steel frame (red) 58 cm, 9 speed Campagnolo Record, Cinelli stem/handlebars, Campagnolo Record wheelset

Merlin Fortius ($5500) - Black titanium M frame (55.5 cm), 10 speed Campagnolo Record carbon, FSA carbon stem/handlebars, Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheelset

You just have to branch out to races that take longer than daylight allows. :evil

That is what I thought, but some of you would spend a lot more money on a bike than I would as I don't think I would notice the difference.

I will keep my eyes open for some of these. There have been other Colnago list on the Omaha site before, but it was almost a year ago.

The 508 was pretty tough this year. Consistant 15-30mph headwinds for the first 250+ miles were pretty brutal. 30 of 70 solo racers DNF'd in the first 200 miles. The nice thing about the wind though was that it was cool and kept the temps down, that was nice. Other than the wind the race was great. We set the two tandem course record with a kind of soft time (35hrs 11mins). It would have been nice to break 30hrs but it wasn't to be this year. I'm sure another team will break it soon if not next year.

What about a Gios steel frame? I had one and it was a nice ride and it looked really cool.

Yeah Gummeee, you have to broaden your horizons! Racing throught the night is a hoot! Of course the reflective tape and little blinky light adds soo much weight...it probably slows us down at least .000001mph. :thumb

I've seen back to back recumbent tandems that cruise at 30+ mph speed easily (with lower aerodynamic drag than regular tandems).. of course the riders on the recumbent tandem have lot of pracrtice and training.
