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!
    You should probably start your own thread and ask this. This particular thread is for posting what bike you have, a picture of it, etc.

    Go here: Road Cycling and hit the 'Post new thread' button in the upper-left.

    Congrats on the new bike and good luck on your wheel search!

    I would have to say I'm a little better than amateur status, but I am a bicycle enthusiast. I have three road bikes.

    Allez-1.jpg A 2005 Specialized Allez Sport - really a fun and quick ride for those days I feel like Speed Racer.

    A 2011 Specialized Sirrus Sport Hybrid - a frame similar to the Roubaix (but different enough) with flat bar handlebars.
    Great, comfortable cruiser and still a road bike. Sirrus-01.jpg

    SL3.jpg A 2011 Specialized Roubaix SL3 Expert (newly purchased) - it's like owning a Mercedes Sport Coupe.

    I've lost 63 lbs bicycling - it's for health and recreation. I average 17mi-day @avg 15-18mph 7 days a week (weather permitting). Lots of wind in Reno. Not bad for an old geezer (68).

    You deserve better than Specialized, trade those things in for one really nice bike!

    Seriously, though, I think you're doing great (other than the brand allegiance thing)....

    I see black spokes in the foreground and a black mat on the floor/background obscuring them.

    Am I correct in assuming that you feel faster on your Allez than Roubaix?

    Not sure about that. I've only had the Roubaix a few days. The Allez is more compact, but heavier (aluminum vs carbon fiber), and I'm more used to it (triple vs double). Still getting the feel of the Roubaix (and trying to figure out this complicated Cateye computer that only works when it wants to ). In the long run the Roubaix is more comfortable and will be quicker.

    You did what with whom for how many cookies?

    I am new to the forum, but I figured I would post this here. I just picked up this bike a couple of weeks ago. The retail on it is just under $4K, but I got it on special (brand new, but left over from 2013) for $2K, with pedals, some and some ods and ends for about $2K. It's a Scott Foil 30, full Carbon Fiber...everything, with SRAM Rival Gruppo.

    So far, I LOVE this bike!






















    I LOVE this freaking seat!

    Fuji Sportif 1.7 by Eat More Plants1, on Flickr

    My Fuji Sportif 1.7C. It's my first new road bike, and I love it, and could ride it all day long if I had the chance. I had been looking for a "Show me your Shimano Tourney shifter/derailleur-equipped bike" thread but nothing turned up ;-)

    six13.jpg

    My “new” six13 has finally come together. I slowly built this up on a pretty tight budget using mostly eBay parts over the past several months as a replacement for the two-sizes-too-big Raleigh grand prix I’ve been riding. It is my first effort at building a bike and I could not be happier with how it turned out. Certainly not all top end components, but it fits and rides beautifully and is a rocket compared to the old bike.

    I ride the el best bike in the world for someone of my stature, the KHS flite 747.



    It is listed as a 65cm, but that means close to nothing. The seat tube is something like 58cm, and the top tube 62cm. I am 6'7", with a 36" inseem. The 200mm cranks on this bike make a world of difference. I can usually smoke most other riders on short climbs, long climbs are a different story. I recently learned the massive torque of the cranks has been bending the stock chainring, so upgraded to a cold-forged praxis and it has been wonderful. Caused me to lower the handelbars to their lowest position now that I spend so much more time sprinting. I could probably fit a smaller frame, something like a 62cm, but only if it had a high bottom bracket to fit the larger cranks (nothing like this exists). I also have 28c vittoria rubinos riding on 36 spoked rims to accommodate my clyde nature (250lbs, but its all legs, I swear).

    I posted this pic because with the lower handelbar position, the bike somehow looks proportional. Maybe its just that I have bonded with the bike and can no longer see her odd proportions. I am used to riding alien looking bikes, sort of like larger versions of the mini-velos, since the 700C wheels look small on the tall frames.
    Bike 1) 66cm 1987 Nishiki Sport + Nexus 7 IGH + Velocity Chukkers + 200mm cranks
    Bike 2) Zinn Designed KHS 747 + Sella Anatomica Vintage
