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

Thanks im excited to take it for its first ride. The last DA group I had was 7800 so I'm sure to have blast with this one.

Scouring the web im 95% sure its a 2013 or '14 frame year. A few more years for it to be considered a classic. Id say it's still modern.

My current ride is a Titanium Schwinn Paramount made by Serotta. I think that it is a 1999 model. The original fork was bent so I upgraded to a carbon fork (1"). I put on Shimano Di2 10 speed shifting with Rolf Vector Pro wheels. I currently can't post photos but will be able to very soon. It is perhaps the smoothest (not the lightest) bike I have ever ridden.

That took a bit of digging. That bike was several years ago.
