What road bike do you have?

Notices
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

Just got a new Trek Emonda a few months ago. It's such a comfortable bike! I definitely feel faster on it... haha

My previous bike was a Giant TCR. Great bike as well but after learning more about proper sizing and fit, I realized that it was a little too big for me. I had it for 5 years though and loved ever minute of it. I just feel a difference now with my Trek and a proper size/fit

Finally I reached 10 posts so I can post a pic of my bike ^_^
This is my first road bike but have two MTBs.
I did not have a plan to buy another bike but as soon as I see the deal, I could not pass $600 deal.
Bulls bike is not popular in US though.
The bike is Bulls Desert falcon pro.
Its from old stock but its full 6800 Ultegra groupset. aluminum frame.
they have carbon bikes but price difference was $500 for Ultegra groupset (still good price) and $200-300 for 105 groupset.
also weight difference was 0.01 LBS for Ultegra carbon bike. Mine is 17.42lbs in stock form.
the bike is racing oriented bike so it has 50/34 crankset and 11x25 cassette. I have a habit of changing components so it was good excuse to change some components hahaha. Actually my neighborhood has many steep hills so 11x25 cassette was too much for me. Probably 11-32 or even 11x34 might be my ideal cassette but I need new medium or long rear derailleur so decided to go 11-30. Also got new pedal, saddle, seatpost and DT Swiss P1800 wheelset.
I ended up spending almost $1000 instead of $600 original price of the bike T_T.

Very nice looking bike,
Better flip that front QR horizontal to give you extra saving.

I've always had a thing for Bianchi's. That green color, there is something about it. I never understood the Bianchi's in other colors. Just doesn't look right. I have never been able to find the right one though.

Maybe the next bike.

Just picked this one up a few days ago to update my 33 year old Fuji. Had to replace the front tube (leak at stem) and now to pull the reflectors off. This is a nice ride.

Got quite a deal, looks like brand new, guy said he put less than 60 miles on it.
