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

What road bike do you have?

This is funny, a friend of mine was going to buy this bike but it sold out in the 57 cm! So it probably was you that ruined his chance to get the bike.
Another friend bought the 60cm version. I'll get him to post the bike.

Cool.
My address is: ....

BTW - if he has anything in a 54cm or 55cm, that would be even better!

Ok you are the first person I have seen with the Fetish CF wheels. How long have you had them? What are your thoughts so far?

I haven't ridden them yet. They are pretty light, but not what I would call first class, though you can't argue the price. The graphics on the rim are kinda chintzy as they are just stickers. The front hub spins a little like mavic before break in. The rear is gunna require some riding before I race it.

The hubs are adjustable with allens, so plus there.

Overall, for the price, I can't think of anything better. I'll let you know when I can actually ride them. (Winter in Montana)

I am pretty sure that is how the graphics on most carbon wheels are applied. Very interested to hear your thoughts...not sure why as I don't race but....

Damn!! My pics got killed in the last server fiasco. Soooooooo here we go again (not that I ever get sick of looking at my bike)

2004 LeMond Tourmalet...105/Ultegra...all stock except for Vuelta Typhoon SPD pedals and Topeak wedge bag. I love this bike.

Oddly enough, green has never been one of my favourite colours, and I didn't like this at first but it just grew on me. $850.00 NOS

Chuck Norris built a time machine and went back in time to stop the JFK assassination. As Oswald shot, Chuck met all three bullets with his beard, deflecting them. JFK's head exploded out of sheer amazement.

Chuck Norris is not hung like a horse... horses are hung like Chuck Norris

Chuck Norris has to jump around in the shower to get wet, not because he is skinny, but because the water is afraid of him.

Here's my road machine, not a 7,000 dollar bike, but I've thrashed this thing for years-training and racing. +10 on Easton aluminum frames! All Ultegra 9spd, Open Pro's always clad with Michelins of some sort.

Picked this up right when the shop opened today, 06 Sarthe with yellow Deda tape and a Thomson seat post. This is the best bike I have ever ridden, it kicks my butt.

Cheers and enjoy, Alan

Just picked up a Lemond Tete de Course w/Dura-ace components, carbon fiber/titanium frame. Got a once in a life time deal on it and it was my size. Couldn't pass it up. Talk about smooth, effortless cycling!

First ever carbon framed bike. Its got a fantastic mix of carbon and titanium. Dura-ace is just fantastic.
