What road bike do you have?

Road Cycling “It 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.” -- Ernest Hemingway

It's a 2014 felt zw85, a women's bike. Being 5'4, the local shop suggested that a women's bike would fit better and it has a 105 group set so I can't complain.

Well....I've gone back to the carbon after trying the CAAD9. It's not that I didn't like the Cannondale...it's a sweet bike, but I just like the carbon a little more. The C'dale is a 54 and I think a 56 would have fit me a bit better too.

My 2014 Bianchi Intenso. Got it this summer and have put about 700 miles on it. Very nice ride but twitchy compared to my 1980's steel Lotus. These Italian bikes look so sexy, it (almost) would make the rider look good.

I'm on a Felt V85. Ridiculously fun bike; fast enough and rugged enough for the crap roads/detours/etc I deal with. All 105 components, what's not to like?

Traded my 2015 Cannondale SuperSix EVO 105 today for a 2014 Cannondale SuperSix EVO Hi-Mod Team demo bike. The price was too good to pass up.



Sorry the pedals and valve stems aren't oriented correctly but I took the picture when I stopped for water during a 22 mile test ride I did a few weeks ago.

My 2009 S1. Mostly original 6600 SL, except 6800 crank which is silly looking IMO but the difference in front shift quality is night and day.

That's a great looking bike. Is that an optical illusion or is that tire rubbing on the fork? It doesn't look quite centered either.

If you look at the OP, it is quite obvious that it is not rubbing. The crest of the tire is ahead of the fork, so it will look like that from the front. The disc brakes cause it to be non symmetrical, but it is in fact centered.

New to the forum, and new to road cycling, and I picked up an entry level road bike to get my feet wet. It's a Trek Domane 2.0. I'm looking forward to learning from the group here.

I've been using the glider for about 7 years now. It's perfect for me. YMMV ofcourse.
