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

This is my bike....1980 something PUCH. Anyone know the year or how I can find out?
Have since added Michelin red stripe carbon tires,new black hoods,red bar tape,road morph pump,aero bar,new saddle and seat bag. Has ALL 105 components.
Bike is lighter than I thought it would be....rides and shifts real smooth......
........Bike is just a little to tall, I am 5'8 thinking about 53cm ?

I'm finally getting back to my roots with road bikes. You see, I started on road bikes back in the middle 80's. Then I went over to bmx/freestyle for many years. Just recently, I've decided to come back to road riding. It's been a long time now but I feel like I've come full circle. Anyways, I've only had two road bikes prior to today.

1-1986 Schwinn Prelude with Suntour Cyclone parts
2-1988 Bridgestone RB-2 with Shimano Exage Sport parts

And finally....today I picked up this-



The SPD pedals will take some getting used to but I'm looking forward to putting on the miles.

they make a SS version but not nearly as hot as their top of the line version. I have not ridden on them yet as I am gettng them installed tomorrow, but reviews so far that I have read have been goon on the OG-07 model.

SS model pic for reference:

The 07 SS version looks a lot better than the 06 and more closely resembles the Ti version. Swap out the pad holders for black ones and you're good to go:

LOL, thanks bonzo. No, that's the spare bed. I got into enough trouble for doing that!

It's funny, I think it actually looks better with the ESs on it - certainly LOOKS lighter. But then when you lift both sets of wheels, the ES's just feel plain "heavy".
