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?

I only had 2 things I wanted in my new bike: disc brakes and Di2. I love this bike, how it rides, and how clean the design and integration is.

Here it is today in the fitting contraption (you can see my old bike in the back right):




Now, it only needs to warm up so I can ride!
All of these look fantastic!

My Road Bikes

1978 Guerciotti, Campy SR minor customizing for fit
1986 Schwinn Paramount DA 7400
1989 Schwinn Paramount Campy mix "Frankenbike
1984 Specialized Sequoia minor customizing for fit
1992 Cannondale T600 Shimano mix "Frankenbike"
1985 Schwinn Le Tour Luxe Shimano drive train in the works.
1987 Schwinn Le Tour "The Beater"
1986 Schwinn Prelude Shimano mix "Frankenbike"

The three Frankenbikes were built from used frames and an assortment of new/used parts from various sources. The 1986 Paramount was built from a retail purchased frame fall of '87 and built up spring '88. The Guerciotti, Sequoia, and both Le Tours were purchased as complete bikes and so far have only seen minor customization, handlebars, pedals, saddles, tires.

In the next couple weeks the Le Tour Luxe will be receiving something of a modernization with Ultegra 6500 hubs, Sun CR18 rims, XT 730 crankset, and 9spd Microshift Barend Shifters. Also Velo Orange metal fenders.

So my local shop is a consignment retailer also selling new Jamis and Salsa bikes. For Christmas I picked up a used 2010 Wilier Izoard Ultegra and it's been great.

The n+1 bug hit me hard this week when I wandered in. They have a couple overstock 2012 Jamis Quest steel frame/carbon fork 3x10 bikes still in the box. I just couldn't stop myself from asking if they would assemble one for me to check out. Went in today to test ride it as I am new to cycling and have never been on steel.

Welp, for $656 plus tax and freshly assembled and tuned, I brought it home.

The new commuter

My new commuter. Spray paint and stickers. Set it up this weekend and stuffed some 700x28 gatorskin hard shells on it. BikesDirect Dawes 2300, aluminum frame, carbon fork, tiagra shifters and FD, 105 RD. Weighs 24 lbs with the old man seat and rack (no bags). Heavy by road bike standards but came to my door for $250 and I plan for it to take a beating. I’m very pleased with my purchase.

Added this to the herd today after the bar tape arrived yesterday. 1990 Nuovo Record rebuilt from the ground up. Mix of Exage Motion and 105. I converted it to 8-speed. Oval wheels n Truvative hubs. Painted some cages.
Now if only our darn weather would stop raining so I can take out my good bikes! lol

I have a 1986 world sport Schwinn. I've called her mule due to it's heavy tubbing and durability. I also have a 2019 Wabi special just brought her last month and loving every second.

one of 2 Treks, Trek Emonda SL5

couldn't pass up the deal, also i needed a climbing bike, the other bike is a Madone 9.0
this one comes with 105 all around (which coming from Dura Ace i think the 105 is better, for the price and performance, i am really surprised on how much better 105 is now!)

The Mad-One...

And here is my other girl, the Mad one, The madonna...Madone. I wanted this bike since it came out, got a chance to get it a year ago. Great for the flats, bigger crank than on my Emonda, this one is all Dura Ace.

Thank you. Friday Evening i was involved in a car accident. Kid ran a red light, hit my car (TBone) with my kids and wife in the car...we walked away, but we are hurting pretty bad. I am afraid i won't be riding them for a while. I guess i'll look for upgrades in the meantime.
