    For the ugliest carbon bike, that's not too bad looking Roubaix.

    Sweet looking bike! That stem is intense, I can feel back spasms coming on just looking at it.

    Recently bought a used pair of HED wheelset and semi-converted my Cervelo S1 into a time trial bike. It is my first riding experience with solid disc wheel. The "foo...foo...foo...." wind noise is awesome. I tried them out on a windy day and got blown sideway many times. Will take some time to get used to.

    Built this up on a budget, finally making my return to time trialling 3 years after breaking my back.
    Mainly sourced on ebay/classifieds with brand new groupset. Cost me under 1000 (under $1700) -
    Swiss frame and forks 200
    Hed H3 Tubular front wheel 200
    3T Aura Pro bars 100
    Ultegra 6800 groupset 250 (brand new)
    custom carbon fibre rear wheel disc cover for a powertap wheel I already had. 140
    Saddle, bottle, stem, cables etc 80
    Had the tyres and Zero Gravity Ti brakes lying about unused. I move the pedals between this and my track bike.

    Just bought my first road bike from a buddy that's moving out of country, hoping to put enough miles on it this year to earn a nicer bike next year. 2005 Trek 1000, Sora in back, 105 in front, ultegra brakes, in decent shape tho in bad need of TLC. Going to tear it down, degrease and lube, debadge, but my seat on it, re-wrap the handle bars, might not replace the cables since everything works.
    $150 plus whatever I put into it... did I do ok?
    (oh, and it FITS!)
    Upgrade! Put a new cassette and chain on that one, cleaned it up, sold it for too much, bought this for too little:
    2006 Giant OCR Composite, hardly ridden by a very sweet elderly lady that claims 300 miles a year since '07, but I have a hard time believing it. Went from sora/105 to all 105, 8spd to 10spd, alu to carbon, threw in a set bag and pump that I'm not sure about. Also, not sure I want this adjustable stem. I have a bontrager that will work fine, likely swap that. Has mbt pedals, need to get some road pedals and shoes.
    Took it up the local reservoir two days after I bought it: 22.4 mi, 1:41 hr, 1477 elev gain, avg 13.28 mph. Not huge for some but way harder road biking than I've ever done. Bike was sweet.
    The OCR is billed as a bit more enduro than aero, and I'd agree, but with the bars slammed I didn't feel like I was losing anything, and Strava claims I broke 61 mph on a downhill. Felt like 100, was probably 50.

    An "elderly" woman rode that?

    I usually average 12-14 MPH in my area with lots of rolling hills, and the fastest I've ever hit on a downhill was something like 36 or 37 MPH in my highest 50-11 gear.

    Yeah, I'm sure the gps was not telling the whole truth but I can say I was so way beyond spunout, I try and pedal and it was simply laughable. No purchase.

    Honestly, there is really no fair comparison. The Fuji was bit too big, the wheels were R-500 and the components were seven year old 105. My Tarmac is the best road bike I have ever had. I had a Super Six that I really like before the Fuji that I had to sell in divorce. So the Fuji was really just a stepping stone to get back on the a horse. The Tarmac is lighter, rides better, accelerates bitter, handles much better and most importantly fits better. BTW, I fixed my seat since the above pic.

    Im new to the site and i just picked up my first road bike. I went an got a new 2014 Trek 1.2 the bike fits me great and im able to ride right along people that have been in the sport for sometime now. Coming from a distance running background I think its helped. I have had the bike since Tuesday and have put on 126 miles since. I absolutely love this sport. Its really really big here where I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
    This may be the wrong section for this but im not familiar on how this board works. so pardon me if i post in the wrong area.
    Anyways, I have been looking into new wheels as I fell the rotating mass of the bontrager "approved" wheels are a little heavy.I am doing a 58 miler in Eureka springs in august and im wanting to have as much advantage in the cimbs as possible. Eveyone has said wheels wheels wheels with a low restance tire will be all i need for qiuite a while. Its a 9 spd cassete and im having issues figuring out what i can actually use.

    any onfo would be much much appreciated! thanks in advance!
