She's a beauty Herzeleid! The geometry looks similar to my Roubaix(longer wheelbase, taller headtube), which is why I chose it also. I never dreamed that 'comfortable' and 'road bike' could be used in the same sentence
2006 Trek 1500 frame and fork. The rest is from a 2008 Motobecane Le Champion I bought from BD, stripped, put the parts and Neuvations on the Trek frame/fork and sold the Moto frame with stock 1500 parts for some dough, also sold the Ritchey Le Champ wheels. Been wanting to put a pic of my bike up for a while. I'm a 2-3 times per week kinda rider, 25-45 miles per ride. Have been real happy with this bike. Anyway, specs:
Frame/fork: 2006 Trek 1500 58cm
Group: Ultegra 10 speed
Cranks: FSA carbon something
Wheels: Neuvation M28 Aeros
Tires: Conti 4000s
Saddle: Felt Carbon (no carbon involved, just by name)
Components: Ritchey WCS
Pedals: Shimano low-end SPD-R

Why fear tomorrows, they may never come...
I just wanted to post an updated pic of my bike.

That being said, I love this bike... I also bought a BD bike, swapped all the parts off with my Bianchi and then unloaded the BD bike with older components.
2011 Scott Addict R1. 13.9 lbs as shown. Have had it for a few weeks. Very happy so far.
And here it is with training wheels:
Yup, the downtube says SLUTT.

The comfort is alright for long distance riding, I did a complete brevet series (200, 300, 400, 600, 1000 km) on it last year. Manouvering is a bit sluggish, I've had more agile bikes.
How is the stiffness on the Roubaix frame? I've been thinking of buying a new bike and it looks absolutely stunning.
