2009 Novara Divano. I got it on sale for a great price for the components (at the time). It's now my 'round town/commuter/rain bike.

Started smoking at 16 and quit at 32. I got into a marathon training group for beginners and ran the urge right out of me. I went from never thinking I would quit to not even standing the thought of...

I remember considering MTB shorts when I first started out because I thought I would look funny in the regular road bike lycra. Then I realized no one gives a s***. Now I think I would look funny...

I have the current version of the Tiagra shifters and they have worked great over the past 2000 miles. It is going to be tough to find the 6500's new anywhere. 6500's in any sort of decent...

Uggh, I have a Motobcane frame and I like it. I hate it when BD shills like this though. It doesn't make the bike ride any worse, but it does make it seem less cool.

I also use an old pair of tires for my rollers. Effort wise, the rollers should be easier than being on the road. Maybe you are going slow because you are being too careful? I was intimidated by...
