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

I cant post pics yet...my first road bike was a 1991 Trek 2300. Carbon center triangle, Cro-moly fork and rear triangle. Current bike is a 2001-2003(?) Orbea Lobular...carbon fork and rear triangle and Aluminium center triangle. Something about hybrids....both lovely bikes.

This is amazing! Did you figure out the process on your own or did you find a guide somewhere?

Thank you,a couple decades of building and customizing have taught me a lot. I decided on doing the prism clear coat before I decided on the color. Originally I was going to do a Arctic white base with a heavy prism to give it a opalescent finish but decided I wanted something a bit sleeker and subtle.

Thanks! Really liking them so far. I have about 60 miles on them and have taken them over several less-than-smooth streets/potholes and theyve remained true.

They do feel a bit more aero than my old 43mm wheels, but a nice crosswind will destabilize you.

They really look good on the build with the Pirellis. The rim widths help to make the 25mm tires a bit more full than something thinner. Also, really liked the fact you can get a slightly deeper rear wheel as part of the wheelset.

Free hub is definitely louder than Im used to. I know some people are all about that loud free hub. These certainly check that box.

Nice! Glad youre enjoying them. Ive just mounted mine and will take it out this weekend for a 3400ft climb. Im a little concerned with the descent and some crosswinds. I know exactly what you mean with the hub sound, at least its a tad deeper sounding and not so high pitched. In any case, enjoy that machine youve built!!

Here's my newly rebuilt old bike. The frame is a 2001 (I think) Eddy Merckx Team SC. I loved it in its original carnation (Campy Chorus 10-speed group and Rolf Sestriere wheels), but I took a looooooooong time off of cycling, and it's been sitting in the garage collecting dust for years, with only the occasional ride every once in a while. After riding a Peloton bike for the last year and a half, and then getting stuck home with the COVID situation, I decided to dust off the bike and start some sort of serious riding again. However, given the time off from cycling and being over 50, I thought that it would be a good idea to switch out my 53/39 crank to a compact crankset and switch to a bigger cassette, which meant I would need new derailleurs. I also thought switching from 23mm to a wider wheel would make it more comfortable. At some point, I just said "screw it" and replaced everything but the frame. So, here's the new stuff:

Campagnolo Chorus 12-speed mechanical/rim groupset
Wheels are HED Belgium+ rims and White Industries hubs built by November Bicycles, with 28mm Continental GP5000 tubless
Easton EC90 compact carbon bars with Fizik Vento Solocush tape
Ritchey WCS carbon seatpost
Favero Assiamo Duo power meter pedals

The only parts I kept from the old bike are the Thomson alloy stem and Fizik Arione saddle. Anyway, it rides great (for me anyway -- I've never ridden a modern carbon aero bike), and I'm very happy with it so far. Here's the photo (yeah, I know the chain's in the wrong gears for a photo!) It still has the old Look Keo pedals in this photo. My new ones just came today.

mattcalifornia,
I love seeing older frames recycled/refurbished with modern components, risen again like the phoenix. Your Merckx is sweet!

How's the rotor centering when you install/remove the front wheel? A friend of mine had one a couple of years back and had issues with the front wheel and brake rub every time he took the front wheel off (to fit in his car) and then remove it?
