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

It's terrible. It's because giant sits the brake res on the bar. Im going to replace the 105 mechanical shifters with something like the RS505 that has internal res.

This aluminum/carbon hybrid Six must have flopped because it disapeared after one year on the market, but I think it's a great idea; the best of both worlds. It's also a mix of 105 and Ultegra. It's stock except for a 260 gram all carbon seat/seatpost combo.

1986 KHS Fiero. I've had for 30 years. Fully updated 4 years ago except for original quill stem and handlebars. Shimano 105 5600 2x10 drivetrain, FSA Vero compact crankset, STAM Apex brake calipers. Shimano 105 5600 hubs, Rigida rims. Just a touch over 25 pounds, but still fun to ride.


2006 Cannondale CAAD8 R1000, was stripped when new for a carbon bike. I picked up the frame recently, literally never ridden. SRAM goodies, Red crankset, Force brifters, Rival FD and RD. Tektro brake calipers. DT Swiss Giant Edition wheelset... FSA Gossamer bars, Bontrager carbon seat post. Bike tips the scales at 18 pounds 5 ounces. I'm in this bike less than $200. With a newer, lighter wheelset, I'm sure I could shave that to mid 17 pounds. Not too sure where else I could shave weight. Besides, I'm in the 240s, this is the lightest bike I've ever had...

Good gosh man. That's dreamy right there. I know people have different tastes and all but I'd be pretty dang ok with those four exact setups on my wall.

Great collection of bikes! I've always been curious when I see people with many nice bikes though. How do you decide what bike to ride and when? What are the deciding factors?

It's a tough decision every ride, but mostly depending on the type of riding, right tool for the right job:

When I go climbing its always the Trek (6.4kg).
Then its a little more difficult to choose, I still love my Pina and it rides great, the Tarmac has 28s so its a comfortable ride. The Venge is new to me so still getting it sorted but its good so far. I would say the Tarmac is the best in all conditions.

Crossposted from C+V. Replaced the criterium bars with a used set of Cinelli Giro d'Italias ($20, used parts shop), and the Campagnolo freewheel which came in an absurd 13-18 range (probably for criterium racing) with a Suntour freewheel in 13-24 ($5, co-op). Redid the tape as well. Brake hoods (torn, held on with velcro straps) are up next, and possibly a smaller crank because 53-42 is a little silly for Seattle terrain (that said, the 53 ring is extremely fun when going on tailwind flats). Oh, and a new Columbus decal too, since De Rosa liked to put them over the clearcoat for some reason.



Best thing about riding a steel frame around Seattle- there are so many awesome old steel frames here that it becomes an instant conversation starter when I see someone's Bridgestone RB1 parked next to this thing, hah.

Not many lawns in my neighborhood, unless your property backs up to a golf course.
