My first road bike ...
2013 Specialized Allez Sport
One of my first posts here. After riding an aluminum Trek 1200 on and off for 25 + years, I finally decided to upgrade. About 3 weeks ago I got a great deal on a 2011 Madone. Loving it so far.
First post. I picked this 2009 Raleigh Team from craigslist last week for a really good price I think. Ultegra/105 mix. Liking it so far, hoping my new saddle and stem come in the mail today.

My first real Road Bike, Trek 1.5 - bought it a few months ago and have been enjoying it. The white bar tape is getting dirty, may change to black next.

My newest build, a 2013 De Rosa Merak II
And some minor changes on the Ridley. I switched to a Specialized Romin Evo 143mm and removed the white glossy bar tape and opted for the red version.

That Ridley is ree-dikulusly hot.

Well the bug has definitely bitten me. Over 700mi in 1/2 a year on my first road bike and dropping 20lbs, I bought myself my "halfway" there present, my "realistic" dream bike. sorry for the crappy pic, I snapped a quick one when I brought it home the other day, and have been too busy with work to even take it for a ride...getting anxious
