Ok, its time t get serious about some upgrades like deep section tubulars for road racing and some sweet weight weenie parts for my Zak Dieringer cross bike soon to be completed. Can anyone recommend some cool (but simple) color schemes? For cost reasons I was thinking good old black, but its a shame to have a custom bike that lacks any creativity in the paint.

So with that I am thinking about selling off some of my current gear.

Heres what Ive got:

DT240s Hubs with DT Supercomp spokes (28f,32rear) and DTrr1.1 Clincher rims. Shimano 8-10 speed and nice and light at just over 1500 grams with rim strips. Will come with DT skewers. $380pr. I paid $760 for them late in 06. The rear is rarely ever used due to my Powertap. Bearings, etc top notch. All black!!

Flashpoint FP60 front wheel with skewer. New in 2007. 841 grams with rim strip. $350.00

Steel 54cm white color Panasonic frame and steel black fork with Horizontal dropouts. It comes with a nice white 26.8 American Classic seatpost and new headset. It also has matching Blackburn bottle cages. I paid $45 for the headset recently. Racing style frame. $90.00 keep it in mind for a cheap track bike for Lorain Speedway. Its 3cm too big for me. Can add for little extra money modolo or Cinelli quill stem, bars (Modolo or Cinelli 66), BB, crank (ultegra 170 or 172.5)

My 52cm Cross bike-complete. 53.5 top tube (I'll need to recheck that measurement)and long shaped chainstays make for massive mud clearance out back. Its a Dedacciai 7005 aluminum frame and carbon fork that handles and rides great (on or off road). No brake stutter and geometry has no toe overlap. Black Chris King headset ($125 value). Very stiff for sprinting and powering through the grass. Its currently set-up with a single ring (42) FSA Gossamer front crank to a SRAM 8-speed 12-26 cassette (only 220grams), shifted via an Ultegra brifter and light brake only lever on the left. Cane Creek SCX-5 brakes and brand new Kool-stop pads. Cannondale carbon/alum 27.2 seatpost, FSA 120mm stem, Easton EA70 42cm ctc bars (matches bike in colors). Bike has a wild orange/yellow/red graphics on black paint. Quite a few nicks and scratches from a season of cross racing, but structurally in great shape. I dont have any "modern" saddes to offer, so pick from what Ive got (vetta light, old Sella flight).

Dont get me wrong-I love this bike, but I think I might make a carbon/steel bike for this fall or just race my SS. But for now I need some road racing gear.

Rear wheel is a 105 hub (brand new),32h Velocity Aerohead rim, black spokes. The hub is 8-10 speed so no problems upgrading. Front wheel is in very nice shape with 105 style front hub, 36 spokes and Matrix semi aero shaped (not deep) rim. $700.00. NO pedals.

FSA SL-K carbon 170 53/39 crankset with TWO bottom brackets. Great shape-was on my TT bike. One New and one good, but used bottom bracket. $185.00 for all.

I'd take the fixie off your hands but I think it's too big for me too. Nice offers though. I just got a cross bike and wheels I'm pretty much set with.

Why not paint your new 'cross bike in colors that complement or match your team kit? Mostly white w/ bits of red, green and black.
You are due for a new bike in any case. It's been literally weeks since you got one!

I will consider "GIVING" away the fixie frame/fork/headset/seatpost to the right person. That would be someone who couldnt otherwise afford a race type bike. Know anyone?, let me know. A junior or otherwise!!

If there desire is to truly ride and race it then I can help even further with a crank, BB, etc.
