    Look at that speedometer!!! Awesome!
    and it has a red-line area to let you know the hamer has been droped..
    and a big-rig mirror and some sort of license-plate looking thing. I recall my first geared bike (single cog and 3 chainrings I think) around 1989-90 had a mechanical speedometer on it, though I think it was round. And I had a dorky license-plate thing with my name on it.
    Hey thanks guys, I'm pleased that you like all the sweet features my above bike has.
    Here are my other road bikes, I realize they aren't very impressive compared to the above one but oh-well I'll post them anyway!:

    That we like it?? It doesn't matter if we like it, as long as you're happy with it.

    my latest build, sort of a CX wannabe or pseudo cross bike. Had an older Trek 1000 laying around that is in good shape but the drops are a little uncomfortable on a long ride and I've got a lot of spare parts from a few paramount builds, so I thought I'd see what I could do on a minimal budget. May not look like much but its fun to ride and makes an all around commuter bike.

    Frame shipped was $425 (included fork, headset, seatpost, saddle)
    Gruppo: $750 (included all cables and bearings needed)
    Handlebars & Tape: $30
    Aksium Wheelset: $165 (Chainlove)

    So I guess the total was a bit closer to $1370. My cousin works at a bike shop so the building and labor was free.... well it cost me Chipotle.

    New bike day. That's my new '97 Lemond Zurich. Equipped with Dura Ace-everything except for the crank (Ultegra). Mavic Helium wheels. Came with a Bontrager computer, a Zefala frame pump, a saddlebag with tools / patches / stuff, 3 pairs of tires, and a spare 9-speed cassette. Everything in good condition. Can't complain for $450.

    Just picked up my first road bike the other day. $420 for this 44cm 2009 Specialized Vita. I believe the seat-post and fork are carbon (the fork says "carbon") on it. I was trying to find more information on this bike, but there doesn't seem to be any Vita's from 2009 that came with drops... so I'm curious if anyone can help me out with more info and let me know if I got an OK deal on it.


    In any case, I really like the feel of it. I just need to get used to hood brakes.


    Edit: Btw, I'm only 5ft and 1/4 inch tall.



    Edit 2: Just figured it out.. had the year wrong: http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bik...vitamultisport . Seems like I did pretty good with how much it cost http://www.bicyclebluebook.com/searc...spx?id=3029653

    As of today, I have a 2013 Cannondale CAAD8 2300.
    One of my local stores (Wooden Wheels) is having a blow-out sale and I couldn't resist the bike.
    Plus, after spending some time on their GURU machine, they got the Cannondale fit perfectly to me. Wow, what a joy it is to ride. For a lower-end road bike, it's so much better than my old Trek 1000 and miles apart from my KHS Urban Xpress.

    I've been riding my Lemond Tourmelet for the last 8 years and love the bike. Its new role will be for winter/rain use as my new BH Primsa arrives on Saturday. I've had the itch to get a carbon bike for the last year + and finally pulled the trigger after riding 6 different rigs. Very excited as the better weather approaches in the PNW and hopefully I can start putting some solid miles on the new bike. Pics to come.

    My Soma ES

    IMG_0105.jpg

    Hi. First post. I hope the picture works...

    It's of my first custom build. A Soma ES, 58 cm.

    Selected specs:

    Sram 8-speed cassette
    Sugino OX 601D crankset with 48/32-tooth rings
    Dia-Compe brake levers and downtube shifters
    Shimano derailleurs: Ultegra front, 105 rear
    Surly Pacer fork
    Tektro R-539 Long Drop Brakes
    Hope Pro III hubs with H + Son SL42 rims

    Painted her myself and threw on some random stickers for good measure. Really happy with how she turned out (although the paint job is very noticeably amateur when you get up close). I'm waiting on a Tange seatpost. Yes, it's steel. I'm sure it weighs a ton, but I'm not super weight conscious. Hopefully it's as comfortable as it is heavy.

    Planning on doing some touring, then sizing down the steerer tube to get more of a leaned-in roadie feel. Or not, we'll see.

    I've had her out with a small load on the rear rack, maybe 15 lbs. Very impressed with how she handled it. Also really outstanding on descents. As for acceleration... not her strong suit, but she gets up to a decent speed eventually. Overall just a really smooth all arounder that should last roughly a lifetime.

    New to Road Cycling - picked up a true road bike

    Hello, everyone!

    Just getting started in road cycling. Ridden in a large charity, fund raising event for the last two years (on a cro-mo rigid MTB converted to road tires) and each year it has been more fulfilling.

    Decided to bite the bullet and get myself on a an actual road bike for 2014. I enjoy cycling immensely and it is a fitness routine I will actually stick with as I enjoy it too much to consider it work.

    I visited a LBS and found a great deal on a brand new 2012 Cannondale CAAD8 7 Sora Compact Double. I love this bike.

    CAAD8 #1 small.jpgCAAD8 #4 small.jpg

    I rode a Trek 1.5 Tiagra and the CAAD8. The difference was like night and day. The CAAD8 was so smooth, comfortable and it seemed to fit me better from seat to bars. The Trek was a bit too compact for my tastes.

    Anyway, I have spent the last few months reading, researching, learning and preparing for a summer of riding.
