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?

Is it me or does that top tube looks bent on the Royale SE Racing bike?

Thanks! I believe it’s a Fuji frame (remarkably similar to 2012 Fuji Newest) rebranded under SE Bikes (who specializes in BMX) by their parent company ASI (who also owns Fuji...). Less than $450 including second-hand upgrades and rides like a dream!

84 bianchi

1984 Bianchi Tipo Corsa. Built myself when I worked in a Bike Shop LI, NY. Still riding it. Only things I really changed since this picture are the tires and brake cables. I now have Continental Grand Prix Classics instead of the mismatched Continental / Trek Matrix.

Yeah, I got this one half the retail price. Though, in Europe. Not sure if Decathlon sells in the US.

New Swift Carbon

Picked up a 2014 Swift Carbon Ultravox Team issue a few weeks ago. Built up with Dura-Ace Di2 with excpetion of an Ultegra crank that was spec'ed for solid black. Very cool pedigree as this one was ridden by a world champion triathlete. Pictures are forthcoming.

I prefer steel. You know, non-fiction.


This is my 2nd Wraith Hustle, and I've got my order in for a Wraith Paycheck (disc gravel version, same geometry). The 3" drop to the bars is all my old body can handle.


2x11 6800, but I like the R8000 cranks and the 52/36 is more to my liking.


No bling.


Cinelli Red Hook wrap, Mao's kids sent the bars and stem, a whopping $40 total. Tube Tops coming to protect that head tube.


Red accents by KCNC and Ibera. I like Wraith's 7 o'clock cable routing.


Campagnolo Bullet hoops with a Fulcrum freehub to run the 11-sp Shimano cassette. I know I could run a Campy cassette, but I can get two Shimano cassettes for the price of the Campy. Waiting for KCNC to make an 11-sp cassette (if you're going to spend money on a cassette, the 3-piece CNC'd cassette from KCNC is a nice one).

Very nice! This was one of the bikes I wanted when I got into cycling. Would love to own one in the future.

My ride

Got her for free (bag, pump, and bottle also lol) and have upgraded a few things myself. So far I've replaced the handlebar grip tape, got new tires and clipless pedals.
I'm looking to get a new saddle and brake calipers soon. The best upgrade I've done so far is riding her 8+ hours a week. I also like to keep her clean.

A mountain biker's roadie: my Emonda ALR build
Frame: Emonda ALR disc "purple flip" 58
Wheels: DT swiss 350 hubs, 54t star ratchet added to rear. DT competition double butted spokes. DT R470 rims. DT brass nips. Not a terribly fancy wheelset, but tough, practical and easy to maintain.
Tires: Bontrager AW3 700x28
Shifters: SRAM Force 1 right shifter/hydro lever, SRAM force 1 left hydro lever.
Rear Derailleur: SRAM Force 1 long cage.
Crank: SRAM force 1 175 46t
Bottom Bracket: SRAM gxp bb86
Cassette: SRAM X01 11 spd 10-42
Chain: SRAM XX1 11 spd
Pedals: Shimano XT (mountain biker, already have really nice mountain shoes)
Saddle: Bontrager Arvada Pro carbon rails
Seatpost: Bontrager XXX 27.2
Handlebar: Bontrager XXX Aero (I like the ergonomics of the flat section, the internal routing is annoying) 440
Tape: Lizard Skins DSP
Stem: Some Syntace thing
Brakes: SRAM Force 1 hydro
Rotors: SRAM CenterLine X centerlock 160
Misc: Some Bontrager wire cages and Polar bottles (new ones are really nice). Blackburn saddle pouch thing with a tube and stuff.

Built the bike SRAM 1x because I've always wanted a 1x fast road bike. A 46t ring with a 10-42 cassette gives me about the range of a 50/34 with an 11-30 cassette.
I've been mountain biking on the same cluster for like 5 years, so the jumps don't bother me, but I can see why a hardcore roadie wouldn't be into it.
Frame is really cool looking, sort of iridescent purple/blue depending on the angle you look at it from. The second picture sucks but I included it to demonstrate the "purple flip" paint job.
Bike rides fantastic for an aluminum frame. I attribute a lot of that to the 28c rubber and the pretty amazing Bontrager XXX seatpost. They shaped it so it has a really nice flex. That said, the frame is also really snappy without being too harsh.
Overall it's a fun rig. Posting it here because I just had abdominal surgery and won't be riding for a few weeks so I'm bored. Thanks for looking.

how much did that end up costing you?

i love the new alr 5 frame but find 28t cassette and 25 mm tires not suitable for patchy road conditions and comfort ride

That is awesome! Free bike? Neat!

What bag is that under the seat? Any idea? It looks about the right size I'm looking for.
