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

Thanks, Toby! It is an absolute joy to ride. I took her out on her maiden voyage yesterday for a 32-mile club ride and I set three new PRs in Strava. On those, my heart rate was a full 10-20 BPM lower than any previous results on the same segments. That's insane! Yet, amazingly enough, the bike is at LEAST as comfortable, if not more so than on my previous bike. I expected an improvement in performance, but certainly not of this magnitude. To stay I'm stunned is an understatement, but it is fantastic!

I like it, very stiff and responsive. I'm starting on a road bike again after many year of mountain biking. And the saddle position and slope is perfect for me as it is, don't tell me to change it. And I forgot to put it on the big ring for the photo. But at least I have a brick wall .

Love it!!!!!

Like the P1 Domane. The yellow/black contrast looks good. I like the darker shade of yellow. Sometimes yellows good old quick but that shade is easy on the eyes.

I have been thinking about a Noah but their sizes are somewhat confusing. 58.5 (ett) for L and 56.5 (ett) for the M. Which size do you ride and can you tell me your measurements.

i am just starting out trying to get serious about biking, so i got fitted and picked up this:



it's a 2012 Specialized Secteur Sport. surprisingly comfortable for a road bike, which is the most important to me because i'm a big guy. looking forward to get more serious this spring/summer/fall.

I apparently am a bit obsessive and enjoy tinkering with bikes almost as much as riding them. So..... here's the stable as it stands at the moment



and my current tinkerings:

First post, new bike

First post on BF here. I had an old, run down road bike for a while and decided it was time for an upgrade. Bought myself a GT series 4 road bike and i absolutely love it. Nothing on some of the bikes in here but i enjoy it.
