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

I have several bikes. But my favorite is my Specialized Roubaix Expert with upgrades. The day I bought it, I had been off of a bike for almost 20 years and I foolishly tried to pick up where I left off by climbing the hill to my sisters place to show off my new bike to my brother-in-law. He was responsible for getting me back on a bike.

Needless to say, I was not in shape for that hill and I also was a newbie with lock-in pedals. A humiliating scenario ensued for which there fortunately were no witnesses. I scratched the chainstay when the bike went over with me locked and helplessly struggling as I bonked almost at the top of the hill. I promptly went out and bought a Kinetic trainer to practice mounts and dismounts. The scratch is not real obvious, thanks to touch-up paint. But I see it every time I ride that bike.

Here's my brand new 2015 Cervelo S3. Finally decided to bite the bullet and spend my tax return on getting this beauty. Waiting for some new bar tape for a small touch of customization. Might upgrade the wheels next year if the government is kind enough to give me another handful of dough.

I have a Framed Minnesota 2.0 Fat road bike.The Framed Minnesota is perfect for people who are looking for a multi-purpose bike. The wide array of gears and reliable fat-tires of this bike makes it versatile, and allows you to ride over different terrain.

Hot - if it's anything like my P3, you'll be incredibly happy. Congrats!

I actually have some black with red trim Red Hook Crit bar tape on order. I'm not a fan of white bar tape and I'm considering changing out my saddle but I agree, the stock black bar tape is boring.

The thing is; you've got lots of white decals to match.. handlebar seems to be the one place that's lacking white.

Actually... Your tax return is your money that the government gets to keep from you (under threat of imprisonment) for the better part of a year, interest-free.

I have to see this bike, but your image isn't showing up. You can't use imagur anymore. Can you rehost on another site? I love the way Argons look.
