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

Not allowed to post pics yet, but I'm on a vintage 1987 14-speed Nishiki Altron 7000 (aluminum) with Shimano 600 components, a Biopace crankset and Time Atac MX pedals (I use these pedals on all of my bikes so I don't have to switch cleats. They make for a decent road/MTB hybrid pedal with a big enough platform to ride in street shoes for quick commutes). I love it!

UPDATE:
I can post pics now, so here it is... It usually has white pedals, but I've got the old black ones form my MTB on it in this pic.

Wilier Zero.6 - round 2. First frame cracked. They had a new one to me in 10 days, this one is working out much better.

Well.

In July, 7 months after my cross bike as a road bike and I were broken by a car, I found this Defy 3 on CL

It’s a 2016, with less than 250 miles. I replaced the tyres and tubes since they were the evil ‘not thornproof’ tubes and I had a set of 28mm around. The new tubes made it happier.

Then, last week, the bike I had ordered actually showed up! Direct from Italy, a 63cm Bianchi Inifinito CV disc.

I am fond of it already.

go fast:





go faster:




go not quite as fast but usually have more fun:




The Giant rides immensely better than the Specialized which generally handles like crap. It's the nicest (road) machine I've ever owned by a long shot. Also I know the Ritchey isn't a road bike, but it's my favorite one so ya'll have to deal with it

Started cycling again, at age 65, after 8 years off, with two new knees. I decided that a new bike was in order. Colnago C-RS with Campy Chorus. I bought a complete 105 equipped bike for half price ($1200) at Velomine, the took the parts off, sold them on E-bay and built the bike up will all Campy parts. Total cost, just under $3K, but I didn't have to buy a saddle or pedals. I'm using some tough tires for the chip-sealed roads in my area. Weight with two bottle cages, pedals and computer 16Lbs, 10oz..

In my quest to downsize my stable I managed to pass on 3 of my rides lately. And I only added 2 more, LOL!

The first is a dang near mint 1986 Team Fuji:




Suntour Sprint components. A real beautiful, and fast, old ride.

Then a week later I stumbled on this hand-made Bill Davison ride. Looked a mess and had a ton of issues but cleaned up nicely. A few hours of work got all the components working properly also. Not the most "manly" ride but it sure is a high quality, beautifully made, frame that really flies. This one is a keeper.





Went with silver bottle cages, that pink was too distracting



The pantographing on the seat stay cap is the only flourish on the frame.



Lugwork is immaculate



Simple, graphics

Running Dura- Ace 9 speed.

A beautiful mid 90s Serotta CSI:





Campagnolo 8 Speed....right now.

Then there's this Jan De Reus I recently had rebuilt:




Shimano 600 Tricolor

That's a playboy edition. All are fine looking bikes.
