Pinarello Gan S with ultegra R8000, pro aero vibe bar and swiss side wheels.
Just got the new Venge built up (54)! Still waiting for the handlebar to come off backorder, and waiting for a set of ENVE 5.6 wheels, but other than that, it’s all built.
Since these photos, I’ve swapped the S-Works Powr to the Prologo Dimension Nack saddle. Much better for me.
Canyon Aeroad 8.0 di2 / disc for the road fast days, Co-op ARD 1.2 (REI in house brand) for gravel and training!
Canyon “mods” are a fizik arione R1 open and shimano 105 pedals, and custom wahoo mount, ard has a PowerTap c1 powermeter, shimano m520-pd pedals, and specialized avatar saddle.
How do you like the ARD 1.2 - I have always considered getting a REI bike for training/exploring. Would you buy the brand again?
I have my Canyon Aeroad CF SLX with some slight mods (Cosmic Pro wheels & Vector 3 pedals) for the summer months.
My Ribble CX5 for gravel / Cross / exploring (I love this bike, it’s like riding a sofa and can do anything with just a change of tyres, also deceptively quick)
My custom build with Planet X frame for lightweight climbing ( 6.2Kg so good for the mountainous terrain of Norway when I visit)
With the upgraded wheels…
Photo of the TT bike, built on a budget from eBay parts but it’s come together quite well in the end I think. Saddle recently changed to an ISM and shifted back a little. Probably won’t be out on it again this year so here’s to 2019!
I’m fairly happy with it overall. I bought it as my first road bike, wanted something relatively cheap but also dependable and was recommended the 1.2 for the full 105 setup. I’m currently using it as a gravel / adventure bike with big 32mm tires on it so that’s dope.
It’s got a 1 year warranty on the bike and REI is pretty good about honoring it for stuff. I had the rear hub crap itself and they replaced the entire wheel which was cool.
The only downside is the weight, it’s 22lbs / 9.8 kg for a medium, so something to consider if you’re going to do more than just low key adventuring / training. All in all for $1200, I’m pretty happy with it. Final note, sometimes they go on sale, but bikes don’t apply for the member dividends!

I think I am the only Raleigh rider here. My first road bike and I am in love with it all.
2017 Raleigh Merit Comp 105 group set.
Just this week I sold my Raleigh Militis! Great bikes…

“This is my bike. There are many like it but this one is mine. My bike is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I master my life. Without me it is useless. Without my bike I am useless.”
My 17lb race bike from this last year. 2013 superfly sl custom painted with fox 32 sc, all xtr and all xxx components. Just sold it, going either Scott spark, giant anthem, or top fuel next season.
My main road ride is a custom Guru Photon Superlight (SL) built in 2015 (sadly, Guru (Montreal) has since gone out of business and sold off all its R&D to Allied in Arkansas). The Fatback Skookum has been my four-season mountain bike, but it’s especially amazing in the deep Northern snow! Amazingly, both fit on the back of my Fiat…
