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

Great looking bike.
loved it, just wanted to step up from the Tiagra/sora combo. The 105 is a huge improvement.

They are 3T Ergonovas and they're not as shallow as the pic implies. The other view shows a more realistic profile. I'm not sure if they qualify as compacts though.

Here's my very modest, entry-level Mexican road-bike:


It was ~400 us, non-series shimano components. Been riding it for about 15 days, I really like it!

Thinking of upgrading to an Allez in half a year or so.

My 2010 Litespeed Xicon that I bought in April. It was built with an unused Ultegra 6600 kit from a donor bike that the LBS had on hand. I'm liking the "Ti" feel so far. Sorry, tried to "flip it" but my back said "no!"

Upgraded from a 1995 Trek 1100 to... a 2009 Caad9 6.. in Canadian colors ! Just got it two days ago and I'm in love with it. Apologies for the crappy camera pick. I've since removed all the reflectors and will be adding lights. The bike (used, only 50 miles on it) came with a pair of speedplay pedals but I've no road shoe yet.

honestly their frames are made from the same place as a few other "name brand" bikes, go figure...might use one of their SS/FG frame for a cool lil project bike



and that Canadian Cannondale is schweeettt

Here's my scott addict sl. Just upgraded from a 2006 cr1 sl. Finished weight is around 11.5lbs and yes, it's my everyday bike- I even use it to commute to work 2-3 times a week!
