    How in the world do you guys afford such nice bikes? I'm going to be lucky if I can dig up 800 dollars for a bike.

    Buy used off CL, you can sell for same price possibly later. Put aside some money from each paycheck and save. May take a while. Better job? Work two jobs? Don't eat out? Don't drink. I've found my biggest savings was due to not drinking in bars and clubs every weekend.

    Had some adventures in bicycle maintenance today with the Serotta. Needed to retape the bars because I cut the black tape too short. I used some red tape I had laying around (yeah I know, tape ought to match the seat etc, but whatever), and also rotated the handlebars up, and slid the hoods down to compensate and keep them level. Well… Now that the job is done, I realized these changes require a longer cable housing length. So now the handlebars are "tight" when I attempt a sharp turn. Grrrrrr…

    I got my first road bike yesterday. A Merida Ride 90. It's a cheap beginners road bike, but I'm very happy with it.



    I Just have to revisit the shop for some fine-tuning of the front derailleur, since it's scraping the chain a bit when in the highest 3 gears. Other than that it rides very well

    Might be a weird question, but did you buy this from a guy in Oregon? This looks like a friend's build.

    Just a funny coincidence, then. I had a friend who had the same frame, wheels, group, and stem. In any case, it's a great looking bike.

    Nah - my requirement for wheels is that they be aero, not super-heavy, and bullet-proof. I think those have been trued twice in about 5,000 miles, and the second time was just because I'm picky

    Cheers
