    Just thought it's a good idea to share some other cycling photographers' (or photographing cyclists?) bikes and thoughts with you all

    Thanks guys for the various suggestions. I couldn't quite pinpoint what was good and what was average but I realised that when buying a bike, go with what you can afford on a good frame and fork and spend money on getting quality parts like pedals, brakes etc.

    Having said that, a lot of bikes tend to be the same and only the hardcore bikers can tell from bikes that has good setups from those that don't. Like cameras, it pays to do quite a bit of research!

    Actually you can not tell from research. It is from spending time riding your bike and tweaking it along as you ride months on end. You have to stop at some point with all the reading and just go for it. Same as photography.,..sometime the more you ask and without any practical you are confusing yourself more then you are able to pick up stuff and gain wisdom in choosing the right gear to upgear, know your taste and interest and make less mistake. This is not just confined to those who ride or photograph....it applies to everything.
