    Good looking bike! I also just started cycling but will be doing my first charity ride in a 1.5 months. Have fun on the CAAD 8.

    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.

    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

    I ordered the bike from Strada Cycles in Vancouver, BC. It is always a bit scary ordering something in a custom color but the result came out amazing....

    Looks like it's wearing naughty lingerie. I didn't know Adam & Eve had a cycling department.

    That is one gorgeous bike. I'm in the middle of having a Cento1 SR built up myself, but in a standard red/black frame. The custom is hot.

    Redone thanks to suggestions in the Hot R Not thread. I've since gotten ride of the spacer above the stem and I may replace the seat and put it on the cross bike frame I just bought to use my 105 parts since putting ultegra on this puppy.

    Thought this was a nice picture from my ride today....

    In the Hot R Not thread many of you helped improve the look of my road bike with your suggestions, if you recall I upgraded from 5600 to 6800 and I just got a CX frame to put all the old parts on. Even will be reusing that red cage that I had on the other bike.

    Although the 5600 is a compact, the trails I'll be riding this on are relatively flat crushed limestone converted rail road trails so should be just fine. While this is the road forum, I just thought posting a pic of the cx frame I got for a steal I think. Can't wait until it's built up so I can post a pic in the cx forum.

    Again, thanks all for help getting my road bike set up right. I love riding it.

    Cheers
