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

What road bike do you have?

My bikes, and my wife's. I like her to have as good as I do, and she uses them to the fullest.

Here's my Motobecane Le Champion


More pictures here. Ravenmore you were the final shove I needed to push me over the line! Thanks a million because my bike is very nice! I've had it for about a week and so far I'm VERY impressed.

Have no idea if the photo of my new beast will show up (I've been trying to resize and upload for far too long, call me techically challenged); she's a honey although I haven't really been able to take her her out on the town. Much.

I have a 2005 Marin Venezia, I absolutely love this bike. It is definitely much better than that 45lb. hunk of department store steel mountain bike that I was riding around on. No clue how much it weighes tho. I am guessing somewhere in the 15lb. to 30lb. range.

Yes I admit I am lucky. Some came during my stint as a weekend employee at the bike shop. All have served duty with incredible reliability. Only the C35 doesn't climb the passes, as it is way to stiff and bland for that. The Serotta and the small Bititan are my wife's.
Last one in the stable (coming next weeend!):

Newbie to road bikes... Out with the old and in with the new!

My old ride is a '03 Diamondback Apex. Mostly XT componentry and I've done a Metric Century with her. She's a good bike but a bit of a tank at 31lbs. 15oz. in ride trim.


My new ride is a '05 Scattante CFR. Just got her last night and took her for a spin this morning. Heaven on wheels for the easy 12 miles cruise I just got back from. I still need to make my fine tuning adjustments but I'm already in love with this bike.

Very pretty! I love the retro look. When I bought my steel Gunnar in 2004 I purposely made it look retro!

I re-built my 2003 Domina S-Works with Ksyrium SSC SL's, a full-on ti bolt setup from Hyperbolts.com and dropped its weight to 16 lbs. 12 oz. with Vetta V100 PC and pedals per my Rapala digital fish scale.

Sadly, I have not ridden the bike in over 2 years - it's so sharp and now, even better - just a shame to swing a leg over it and cause it any pain....

Wait until Monday for another posting on this link - Calfee Tetra with an impressve ti / alloy bolt kit. The pic below is without the magnesium / ti pedals and Zero Gravity brakes (delivery tomorrow). As this one sits right now misssing JUST these 2 items, it is 13 lbs. 15 oz. The final build should be around 14 lbs. 13 oz. with PC and pedals.

Does that fork on the Kestrel have a carbon steerer? Is it safe to have that much spacers on it then? It's almost as long as the headtube

smaller bike=less weight (and I think) stiffer bike.

I don't know what that has to do with how much steerer is sticking out of the headtube.

My two road bikes:
2006 Trek Madone 5.5 (56cm)
2004 Trek 5000 (58cm)
Both are excellent bikes and they seem to get along well with one other.
