What road bike do you have?

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Happy new bike day

Just picked up this Giant TCR aero for 150 bucks put some work into it cleaned her up. Nice to have a spare bike.

Hereís my road bike. Itís kinda plain. Itís over 20 lbs. I have to glue my tires on. It also got me back into riding, and I love it.

One day, when this bike starts holding me back on rides, Iíll get a carbon bike. Till then, I have some carbon bars.

edit: front brake cable housing was too short here, and has since been corrected.

Finally arrived.

My Ribble endurance Ti. Full ultegra
Have not rode it yet. Just threw it together this am.
And have some minor issues with Ribble to iron out before my first ride. Have not made any adjustments yet.
6 months + to get it to Texas.

The radical upward tilt of the bars and levers has me nauseous. The saddle tilt may be an artifact of the photo. Please let us know your first ride impressions. Besides my quibbles, it looks to be the potential schnizzle. Ride on!

Ultegra R8000 caliper is supposed to clear 28s.

Just purchased this C'dale(2011 Synapse Alloy). Ordered my favorite saddle for it. So, looking forward to it.

Currently my only road bike is my '87 Cilo, w/ all original Shimano 600. Constantly trolling for a '99-'02 Cannondale R800 or R1000 though.

What do you use to keep the shine? Be a shame to let that lose its lustre. On my brushed finished Ti frame, I use Boeshield T-9. It's actually a lube but if you spray it on and let it dry, it really protects the finish and shines up.

I believe you'd have to ask mackgoo. Good question though. It must require quite a bit maintenance!

Personnel road bike - 1983 Schwinn Paramount.

Schwinn Paramount 1983 - Campy Record Groupo Carbon 10 Spd with a Triple front DR 26/40/50. The 26 is a French replacement for the 30 for the local Mts in Boulder, CO. Had the original lime green paint stripped and a Flame (R/O/Y) paint job done by Richard Schwinn at Waterford Bikes about 10 years ago. I ride Gravel, as well as, asphalt by changing the wheels with Continental Contact 28 tires (with tread).

1983 Schwinn Paramount setup for winter basement Riding with a home made book rack.

The thing's gold plated. I only take it out every once in a while. I just wiped it down after the ride.

Just built this 2000s (unknown date) Serotta Legend completely off parts from another (failed) build. Probably wouldn't have gone with as much black but that's what I had on hand. Picked up the frame from TPC and luckily the prior owner had already shaved down the quill adapter stem to a normal height.

Full Ultegra build, random other bits picked up off eBay.

Sadly living in Minnesota means that winter is here but my few test rides (still not dialed in) up and down the street were absolutely glorious (coming from a mostly aluminum frame). Very excited for next year and spring riding.

Clichty,
Iím digging your Serotta except for the handlebars. Next spring, after youíve taken it through its proper paces, I hope you will update us on your ride impressions. You mentioned that you are coming off an Al frame. Mind if I ask what frame that was?
