I just got my first road bike: 2011 Trek 1.5.
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.
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!
Words are like bullets I let them pass through me. Giggity!
11.5 lbs? What's the build list? I'm gonna need a picture on the scale too.
Not that you haven't seen one before - dealing with Andy at Competitive Cyclist was a great experience.
Excerpt of an email I just sent to friend after bagging on this evenings group ride:
I have not gone any distance on the new bike. Just around the block.
I can't wait. It is a real machine. And since I don't have
the time or athleticism to ride any more, I am really spending a lot of
time and money on tricking it out. I have new shoes, pedals, carbon this
and that. It's a real joy to look at and makes a very nice coat rack. I
can't wait to look like a total ass puking on its fancy exoskeleton top

the addict is easily one of the lightest frames around, and running a red group (tuned) + carbon saddle + EE brakes(?), and a nice set of wheels with light hubs (~1100 grams) and the addict could easily be 12 pounds.
That's why I wanted a build list and a picture on the scale.
indeed it is. Impressive build. Especially considering they're 45 mm wheels.
WW??? im lost
