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

Hi everyone! I have been mountain biking for a few years but am new to this whole road cycling thing. I just picked up this 2006 Trek 1200 today for $500, which I thought was a pretty good deal according to my research and a few friends. I am still need to play with the seat and stem in order to fine tune the fit plus pick up so new pedals. Again, greetings!

My first roadbike; an '86 Centurion LeMans RS



I just changed out the wheelset and was promptly hit, so the Reynolds wheel is brand new while the rear is an older Campy hub w/ a Mavic rim and Suntour 7 speed freewheel.
New handlebars and tape, but everything else is original.
I can't decide whether or not I want to change the front BioPace cogs, so I'll just keep 'em for now.

I love this bike and ride it whenever I have a free hour or four.

But I love them

My road toys. Hardly the latest/greatest, but plenty sleek and sexy for me. Both were built last month.


2002 Felt F50R, Reynolds Ouzo Pro Peloton fork, Ultegra group w/FSA Compact cranks, Neuvation R28 SL2 rims


???? Caloi Strada Pro, Ultegra cranks, 105 brakes, Cane Creek levers, Mavic MA3 rims

I had forgotten how much fun riding a freewheel single speed is until I finished it a few weeks ago. I highly recommend building one for thrashing around. (Fixed gear on the street is the bicycling equivalent of wearing a hairshirt IMO).

Anybody know anything about the Caloi other than it's Brazilian and what's on their website? I'm very curious about this frame but haven't found much on it.

Have a good ride!

ok so im a roadie, and i like a nice bike NOT a supper bike or dream bike. i have never spent big on road bike stuff most of it is used and once i have a bike i have for many years. but last year i started looking for some nice steel for a project.. and i really have come to dig the bike.. so who else out there rolls a Schwinn? post them pictures up.. heres mine. i dig my felt f35 2005 for speed and sprints and the dale well because its old school cannondale CAAD 3 1998 with 8sp record and i have had it for 9 or more years.. but its retired but here is the Schwinn Peloton and i wanted an afordable steel project. just got back from a sunday spin with some friends.

Schwinn Peloton 853 Steel 1998
group ultegra/ace
wheel set 32spoke ace-open pro Colorado Cyclist (major great wheels)
ace peds
wallmart bottles

Cannondale CAD3 with Campy Record/Chours 8sp
wheel set 32 spoke Campy Record Open Pro CD Colorado Cyclist
Ultegra peds. weight MORE THEN 18lbs!!

Dear Sea Green Sky,
I'm brazilian. Caloi is the most famous bicycle brand here in Brazil. Note that in earlys 90, it tohether Eddie Merkx were the bikes of pro Motorola Team (there are some pictures with Lance using a caloi). If you want, I can send you by mail some pictures. Actually Caloi have two models of road bike, both with Sora (entry level) - I think because here bike is very expensive. The site is www.caloi.com.br

Took some more pics of my bike with Speedplay X5 pedals and a Cateye computer. The shoes are Shimano R151 with the carbon soles... It's pretty darn stiff I gotta say A new saddle is next, either a Specialized Toupe of Selle something.

Be careful out there!
Oh man! Best wishes for a quick recovery!!

I just bought a 2006 jamis ventura comp from the shop I work at. I got the employee half off discount and the 06 left over price because they are now making the 07's. The bike will get delivered wedsday from fedex and build it after I get out of school. This is the first road bike I have ever bought so I am pretty damn excited. I ride an 05 Jamis Dakar mountain bike right now.

I haven't worn these shoes but I have seen them and I am a pretty strong guy and I tried my best to bend the sole but it didn't budge. That's what he means.
