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

Thank you!

I got really lucky to find this frame as mint as i did, under $500 for this bike with 105's. Feels almost wrong

It did take a 75mm stem to make it perfect for me where i cant see the hub and my shoulders and elbows are relaxed, really happy with the feels right now.

Just put those Campagnolo Zondas (which were originally meant for the bike it replaced, just arrived after the fact), new tires (28c Rear, 26c Front) and some Fizik Performance bar tape on. She's nice and fresh, ready for miles

Yeah that is where I got the transonic above. You have an amazing climbing (the Fuji SL) bike that can hold its own in sprints. Those Performance special editions are a great value.

I went back and forth a bit between the SL and the Transonic but in the end went with the SL because the road bike is for group riding and I wanted as light as I could afford (and with some upgrades the SL can get quite a bit lighter) to hang on the hills in a group. If I'm out solo and going for aero I'll hop on my Felt IA.

I just moved from fitness hybrid (Specialized Sirrus Sport Carbon) to a road bike. I got a 2016 Liv Avail Advanced Pro and so far I love it. This was a left-over from last year and I got a killer deal ($1150 off of last year's list price) so it made choosing it pretty simple. I had been considering the Live Avail Advanced 1, but the Pro with the price they gave me was less than $300 more so it seemed a no brainer to me.

I just realized I should have provided a short description. Fully carbon; Ultegra cassette, crankset, and derailleurs; Shimano hydraulic disc brakes.
