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

This is a steel bike, built for me by perhaps India's only frame builder. Its a Psynyde Autumn. Built in 2015. This is my favourite bicycle now.

It's not. It's just the y graphic next to the cable that makes it look weird. If you go to the All City site almost all of them look the same.

Love the frame, but the 105 was showing its age, so I completely refitted the components. Ultegra 6800 group, Shimano RS81 C50 wheels and Easton EC90 bars and stem.

Am I the only one able to get to page 1023? I hit 1024, goes to 1023. Hit "last," goes to 1023.
Are there just too many posts, or is this a prob on my acct?

I think it's just a glitch. 1023 is actually the last page of the thread.

I had this happening for a number of the threads I subscribe to, most have cleared up now. Perhaps try clearing your cache if you haven't tried that yet. I'd imagine it will clear itself up eventually if it doesn't bug you.

OK! I'll leave that previouspost there for anyone else wondering. Seems like the forum thinks there are more pages than there are.


Totally stoked at a bike I stole last Monday. Pics forthcoming, but it's all stock, sure you've seen one.
LBS had a 2015 demo Giant Defy Adv 2 in excellent condition, for a ridiculous price. Sold my 2006 Giant OCR c3 a few weeks ago to fund a new bike, and this model was on my short list, though I figured on my budget I would be looking at a 2011 or so. This thing fits so well and is so stiff and zippy even with its heavy wheels. I may play around with a longer stem, but man what an upgrade. Newer 105's, TRP Spyre discs, 34/28 climbing gear for my fat ass... what's not to like?
When I said "I'll take it" I figured we exchange $ and I'd walk out like every other used bike purchase, but instead they sent me away for an hour while they hosed it and scrubbed it down, replaced the handlebar tape and adjusted the brakes and derailleurs. "Come back in about a month and we'll check those cables, make sure it's fully settled in." Umm... ok thanks!
I only have about 20 miles on it (work sucks, don't it?) but I am beyond anxious to get out on a long day ride.

Sounds like they want your business again

Moving company came today and the only thing I have in my rental is this bike, laptop, and a suitcase.

I flipped the stem on my Defy Adv like a good boy, but hardly noticed the diff. It's like 32mm, 8°. Going to be changing that for sure.

This is not the bike you leave next to the Piggly Wiggly while you pick up a loaf and jug.
You can want to steal all you like, while I blaze past you on my way back to my garage.

Understood, but what if we consider the human-nature aspect? That's all it takes: a possible lapse in judgement on the part of the owner, and the taunting of all that flash, which, impressive as it might be to more decent folk, only serves to give more impetus to a thief who just happens to have enough determination to heed the voices!

I didn't think flipping it would make a difference but I guess it depends on the fit of the bike. I literally had my toes going numb before flipping it and that problem was solved by flipping the stem and putting my weight back on the seat instead of on my hands if that makes any sense. I just hope a bigger degree stem won't kill the clean look of the bike

I'm a huge fan of nice wide upright bars like on my trek fx bikes and I prefer a similar upright position for when I'm not using the drop bars.

My original post was about bikes looking fancy to the point where they draw attention as to their possible value to thieves, rather than bikes being fancy. You might want to go back and read it one more time. I'd be just as upset if my SAR300 Phoenix girly bike got stolen as I would if my SAR2,700 FX got stolen - which is why I chose to get the latter in matte black instead of fluorescent green: I'd rather draw less attention to it than more.

I hear you. I do love looking at the fancy. Way beyond my pay grade.
