12/27 Ultegra

I purchased this bike used from a Trek dealer who had bought it new in 2000 and had paid four grand for it. Since then, he changed the crank making it a triple and upgraded the wheels. When I obtained it I upgraded the brakes from Ultegra to Dura Ace, upgraded the front derailleur to a Dura Ace triple and the rear derailleur to a long cage to accommodate the triple. I don't know WHY he didn't do that! I added the bottle cages and also added some color by changing the tape as well as a few other parts. It is a 58 CM frame and I like it for going up hills. I am built with a long torso and short legs so either a 58 or 60 seems to fit me good enough for either long road rides or riding up and down hills. The shifters are the only part that is still Ultegra. Everything else is now Dura Ace except for the crank.

but i really dont think that bar tape does anything for this ride .
but other than than , its HOT !!

Bar Tape

The bar tape keeps my hands from slipping off the handlebar. The colors in it are the colors of the bike. When I change it someday, I will only have two colors.

You get some GXP cranks to

You get some GXP cranks to work with a shimano BB? I've never tried but I always assumed they weren't interchangable.

Shimano BB

Sorry, that is a mistake. The BB is GXP. I will fix that!
