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

I don't like the design of most cannondales (except for the Bad Boy- which is just sick - I almost bought one that was two sizes too big because I liked how it looked) but I like your setup.

Thanks a lot! I'm really happy with this current setup. I've had this bike for two years but upgraded it slowly to prevent me from getting the "new bike" fever that comes every year. Also, this way my girlfriend cannot complain about it. The only problem now is that she wants me to get new parts for her own bike...

Just an excuse to get more bike stuff. I like it. By the way, my wife's from Montreal. She used to ride years back but hasn't for a while. Now that I got into it, maybe she'll start again also.

My Felt S25 - I like the way I fit on this bike.




Here's my Trek 2300 that I purchased back in the early 90s. Except for the wheels and brake calipers, I've upgraded everything on it this year. It's a lot of fun to use on hills:



This bike was made before Trek began outsourcing much of their production oversees (not that there's anything wrong with that). It's kind of cool to see this decal proclaiming it's American roots.:

Hellon2wheels, Buying the Litepeed was a NICE move. I wanted to jump on some of the Litespeed bargains out there. I really was lusting after a Litespeed Teramo, but I just couldn't pull the trigger on the purchase...I would have felt too guilty. I've decided to save my pennies this coming year, and buy a nice titanium frame bike in 2006. My current road bike is a Trek 1000...cheap but performs like a champ despite the bottom of the line componentry. I do have a nice Cervelo tri bike and a nice Specialized hardtail MTB for variety. Like you though, I want to buy a good, quality titanium frame that will last me a while. Maybe get a carbon fiber steed in 2007 or 8.

They are Modolo Morpheus (sp?). Similar to the Campi's.

this is my new ride...
signature Steelman : steel + carbon rear
Deda Newton Anatomic 44 Bar :: Chris King Headset :: Ritchey WCS stem
Reynolds Ouzo Pro carbon fork
DT Swiss wheels
Ritchey WCS Carbon seat post ::: Stella SLK Gelflow seat
Campagnolo Record set .
2005 FSA Carbon crank ... almost simular to the ones used with the carbon giant but a tad bit lighter.
THere are better photo's of my bike on Steelman's website...
it rides smooth and cuts like a hot knife in butter.

I have three:

A Motobecane Mirage with downtube Sora shifters.
A Motobecane Le Champion with Ultegra (just retired tonight.)

This evening I snagged a brand new 57cm Scattante R660 with Ultegra 20-speed and lots of carbon.
I saw it at a pawn shop and offered $700 cash for it. The wheelset are Weyless Korso aeros with
16 front and 20 rear bladed spokes. The frame is aero Easton Ultralite with a carbon seatstay.
It also came with a Stelle Italia XO saddle. No pictures yet.

I usually ride fixed or single-speed, but it was too good of a deal to pass up.

This keeps me at 13 ridable bikes.

2006 Litespeed Firenze. I got an awesome deal from ebay. $1505 for a practically new bike. The bike didn't even have any grease yet on the chain/cassette nor any scratches on the pedals from clipping in. It is the replacement bike for my K2 escape which got totalled when a car hit me.

My brand new baby 2006 Specialized Ruby Comp. Just put the first 14 miles on it (on the trainer of course).

Now all I need is for the snow to melt! Drat...I hate snow! Only 4 more months until Spring....Well, back on the trainer for me.
