    Are you in Delaware?

    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.

    Just picked up my first bike in over 20 years... very excited to put some miles on her, get used to clipless pedals, and go on a few group rides...

    CAAD8 6 Tiagra. Love it. Already killed the pie plate, reflectors, etc... added some speedplays, and just need 5 o'clock to get here so I can go wreck a few times...

    Congratulations! This is exactly the same bike I got couple of years ago It took me a while to dial it, but now it fits perfectly. Once I have replaced Tiagra to 105 group, but I broke one shifter beyond repair (( Had to go back to original 9 speed Tiagra, and you know what? I am still happy with it

    Thanks! I hope to get her dialed in over the next few weeks... the shop I bought it from took quite a bit of time, getting the seat right (I am using a loaner specialized seat currently), adjusting everything to my fit, watching me ride on a stand and outside, etc. Very happy with the purchase so far.

    I bought this Specialized Secteur Sport Disc a month ago and have only rode the bike twice due to being out of the country for work but I'm looking towards spending more time with it. It came with 700x35 Kenda slant six for commuter riding but I changed them out this evening for these Michelin Pro4. Still got a lot to learn and experience. Happy riding y'all!

    Funny. Sorry maybe I'm showing my age but we don't know each other, I bust balls with my buddies like anyone else, so I'll just leave the joke commentary alone. But yeah, the tires were a failed experiment. They go great on my wife's bike though LOL, so for now I swapped tires. Will eventually get to black but here's a pic of how it stands now.

    Going to leave this bike alone for cruising rides and going to build a more typical all black cervelo for speed. I'll be back

    LOVE this bike. It looks like a mix of Trek Madone and Scott Foil. Looks like the best of both. I really like the silver of the stem and seatpost. But I'd cut down the steerer.

    A Cervelo for speed? Your Fuji looks like the Scott Foil + Madone, both are aero bikes made for speed...

    Yeah really pleased that Shimano upgraded the Sora and got rid of the thumb shifter.

    A mix of classic and modern! Univega Competizione with original Suntour drivetrain, Bontrager RXL wheels and a Prologo Nago Evo saddle. Been riding this for almost a year! It all started with a lucky craigslist purchase. Total price ~$380
