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

Here's a poor quality pic of my 94' Serotta ColoradoTi, one of the 4 road bikes that I have.

Question for FROryder:

How much does the Serotta weigh? It's a beauty, especially the chromed bits.

It's just under 19lbs, I could knock off a pound or two with lighter wheels and such, but at 220lbs I'm more concerned with durabilty.
Cheers
PS The chrome bits are actually ti.

Sorry, LP's not for sale. As for the bass it's a cheesy '76 Kramer 450. I'm a guitar player, the bass is for recording projects.
Cheers

I like how you mounted your HRM. I'll have to try that.

The Serotta is for training rides, the Litespeed is setup for touring with fenders and rack, also for commuting to work, wet weather and goofoff rides around town. The Gios and Marinoni are currently missing parts, and the Yeti is for offroad.

Sup Khuon? I notice you are a big Aegis advocate. As I said, while shes masked by a new paint job, she was purchased in 95. Is a bike that old worth a component upgrade?

As nice as your frame looks Juan, I would say without a doubt go for the upgrade. If the frame fails for some reason then you can still move the new components over to a new frame.

She looks pretty good, what would you upgrade it with?

If you love it, why not upgrade? I have a 1989 Trek 5000 that I'm in process of upgrading, just for fun, and because I love it!

Others have already voiced (or rather typed) my thoughts. Aegis frames are definately worthy of upgrading. Remember that Aegis' goal is to build a bike that will be the last you'll ever need to buy. Of course they are a bit shortsighted in not accepting the fact that we as a group tend to want more bikes regardless of how well built they are. The first place I'd look to upgrade is the wheels unless of course you're more than happy with them.

Since moving to Indiana, buying a house, having kids, etc... my mountain biking has been on the decline, so last week my wife and I decided to purchase a pair of road bikes. So far we love them. I bought a 58cm Cannondale R900 Triple, and my wife bought a Cannondale SR500 that is simply beautiful. So here are the new rides:

Don't remember if I posted her or not. I got her frame in may, although she was only built up by the beginning of june. Marissa:



She's not the lightest, although the ride is great. Everyone says, "oh, all materials feel the same, yadda yadda" but the ride is definitely MUCH smoother than my Trek 1000. On the trek, if you run over a pack of chewing gum, it'll let you know whether it was Wrigley's or Juicy Fruit. On this bike, small bumps are smoothed out into comfortable, hmm, undulations. (sounds dirty, sorry)

I love red bikes, and that looks like a pretty clean ride. Nice!

that litespeed is quite a crappy beater bike, even for a beater. i think you should reconsider selling it to get a nicer beater ride.

Litespeed beater bike. Jeez... I wish I could be so well off.

So far as my ol steed, I was thinking Campy Chorus. Need a change of pace.

Thanks for the comments btw. I got the thing in college and I still have it! Quite a nice investment.
