Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Thanks for asking. There is some history here since I spent 20 years traveling for my job 100% of the time. Only home on weekends, which meant I could never get into decent cycling shape. And because of that, Iíve been riding a 2004 Giant OCR as my road bike because I never felt I was worthy, so to speak, of an upgrade. But I started working from home and got on Zwift a year ago, and (amazingly) got better fast with riding every day. Since I made this original post Iíve gotten much more focused in terms of what I actually wanted.
TL;DR: A custom build on a Tarmac SL7 Expert frame riding on 28c tires. Dura-Ace mech/hydraulic disc drivetrain with 4iii dual-sided power meter.

Good choice. You might consider leveling the saddle.

hmmÖ I agree it looks low but it was perfect on my first ride yesterday, before this pic. Iíll have to re-torque and make sure itís not creeping downwards. Thanks for calling it out.
