Ghost rider: I did try a Cannondale and Specialized WSD, but I really did not enjoy them. It was a noticeable difference climbing up the hills especially. Enough so, that even though the geometry felt fine, the bike just didn't feel appropriate. My Pinarello feels great, but then again, so does the Scott. The effective top tube is 1cm longer on the Scott, compared to the Pinarello.
Thanks for your feedback!
Picked up this 1999 Raleigh R600 over the weekend.

hey guys! this is my 2011 Giant TCR Advanced. one pic is with its road gear on and the other is with its mixed gravel gear on.
why thank you! i wouldn't normally attempt something so color shocking, but decided to give that a go and can honestly say i am really pleased with the outcome
The green def works on that Giant. Well done.
My neighbor is tall, probably 6' 4". I'm only six feet, but I have long legs (and very skinny) and a short torso, so this bike seems to fit me. I would say after making the adjustments that the seat is much lower than it would be for my neighbor, but by lowering the seat on this bike it leaves the handle bar position in a relatively higher position than I would find on a shorter bike such as my Wellington 3.0 (59c). In the picture I posted you can see the seat in the position that I found it, it is two inches lower now. I would never dreamed that I would like the fit I have with this bike, but it works just fine.
I'll admit, I'm a bit of a "gear junky" so I've changed quite a few things on the bike. The latest is the Romin EVO pro saddle, CG R seat post and some 6800 brakes. I'll have some 6800 pedals coming here soon…that should wrap me up for this coming spring/summer season.
Its a 2009 Tarmac Comp, and got it for a great price at $700 on craigslist.
I love your bike, so clean, and colors are smoking!!!!
90 something Trek 1500. A lot of miles and beat to hell, but still rollin'! And yes, I ride in the snow.

Bought this, my first real road bike, last September. I've put about 450 miles on it to date. I've recently added these Syncros RP1.5 wheels. They're light (1,535 grams), and very stiff. I'm looking to upgrade the crankset and bottom bracket next.
