Reading all the posts about Clydes that love their roadbikes made me want to get one, too. I mean who doesn't want to go faster, right? After spending a month with a Cannondale R800 that was pushing me towards needing physical therapy and possibly traction, I decided to change course and check out some "plush" bikes.
I rode a Specialized Roubaix, and although it was more comfortable than the Cannondale, it didn't "speak to me". However, I fell in love with this Trek Pilot 2.1 within the first quarter mile. It is smooth, fast, and oh so comfortable! In fact, the taller/closer bars make it even more comfortable than my hybrid! I've only ridden it a couple miles, but so far I'm .
It's the 10-speed/triple crank version (which I definitely need), and has Ultegra/105 hardware. Check it out!
