Here's my road bike, a 60cm 1995 Bianchi EL-OS. I got it new in 1996. I've built it with STI and down-tube shifters in both 8 and 9spd Dura- Ace over the years, and even had a carbon fork on it for a while. As it is now: 8-spd DA hubs with one Mavic Open 4 CD and one Open Pro, DA 7410 cranks (my favorite road cranks) and BB, 8-spd era DA brakes, DA seatpost and headset, TTT stem and TTT Prima bar, 9-spd DA STI levers, Ultegra pedals, and Brooks Team Pro saddle. Since I got this bike I've also had carbon, aluminum, and TIG welded steel road bikes, which are all gone now. I can't really see ever selling this one, though.
