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

Spent the day visiting a few LBS and came home with a Felt Z85......I was unsure if the more aggressive posture would be an issue compared to my hybrid but it felt (no pun) really good from the get go.

I don't do triathlons but being 6' tall and a lean 256 lbs I find the triathlon geometry and riding position much more comfortable than a road bike. You get used to it quickly on the road having the brakes and gears on seperate bars. I try to ride at least 100 miles a week and more if time allows. This bike makes it real easy to put the miles on.

This is a 2003 Litespeed Blade, HED wheels, Dura Ace group and the beloved Azonic Loveseat saddle.

R500

Here is my current ride. 1992 Cannondale R500. Bought it with super low miles and all OE. Immediately switched over to a full Shimano 600 8s group, added a Serfas carbon saddle, and Profile Design carbon wheels. Loving it so far!

Kestrel Talon X with Shimano 105

Good morning everyone. Newbie to the forum. Used to be an avid cyclist with my mountain bike until I finally discovered the glory of a road bike. After doing some research for a few months, put a down payment on a 2017 Kestrel Talon. Unfortunately they no longer make my size in the 2017 model so I'm now getting the 2018 model. Thoughts?

Those look almost too pretty to ride. Great looking rides.
