Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Very nice touch with the blue side walls. When those babys wear out you must replace them with blue side wall tires again.

Nice Rides !

Here is my Old School 1989 Trek 5000 with 8 sp Dura Ace.



I'm currently upgrading it to a 9-10 STI Dura Ace with a Flight Deck system. I also have some American Classic 420 wheels that will go on it. I'll post pictures again once those parts are on.

I hope to build a new Road Bike soon, however I wanted to update this reliable old friend for now.

Thanks, it hasn't been ridden much in that last 5 years, but before that I always trained and rode 1 or 2 Century's on it every year.

Hi all, new to the forum. I ride an Airborne Blackbird with complete ultegra 10 with a double ring. Bontrager wheelset that I'm probably going to swap out soon (too flexy) and a fizik Arione saddle which is very sweet.

My bike is an Olmo Millenium with Campy Centaur/Chorus drive train and Zonda wheels, Time RXS pedals, FSA Wing Pro Bars, Thomson stem, Cateye wireless, Ritchey carbon seat post and Selle Italia saddle. Here's a photo of an Olmo Millenium. The photo file of my bike was too large to upload.

Im new around here, but I just got a new Litespeed Terano w/ 9 speed Ultegra today. Will take it out for a ride in the morning I've also had a 2004 Allez Elite for about a year, Im sure it will just sit around. Thought it was time to upgrade. Here is the pic, dont pay attention to the crazy color of the furniture.

I sent it to Louis Garneau here in canada.It cost $450 canadian.They charge $100 to hand strip carbon.The black paint is flawless but the siler is flawed, so they told me to ride it this season and then when the snow comes they will re-paint it for free.

I'm gonna ask them to do the silver part in red for me and I will pay the $40 for the paint.Since they are redoing it there shouldn't be a problem with a color change, as long as I pay for paint.I really love red and black paint schemes.Seeing as I spent sooo much on this bike and all the parts I can't afford the frame I really want (Cervelo R2.5).I'll ride it til it busts.Then maybe a new one.

Fuji Sagres, not sure how old.
Just got this bike from a friend for free! It's VERY tall, just look at the headtube... (I can barely stradle the frame on tip toes) but it rides very well. I'm leaving behind a life of bmx, it's my first road bike and I'm pretty excited.

I just bought a brand-new '04 Trek 2300 two weeks ago, and have put about 200 blissful miles on it. Good thing it's red and black, because it's easy to match the colors!

Here's my Marinoni custom-built...

Sort of a retro early-eighties design with double-butted lugged Columbus frame and chromed fork & stays. Not the lightest thing, but it rides really well and is really strong. The Ambrosia wheels are red anodized and have 36 spokes for strength. Group is full Eltegra.
