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?

Hehe... count me a member of the 'cheap bikes' club.

I own two at the moment. One is a Campus Green '72 Schwinn Supersport, the other is a Raleigh Technium. Not sure of the year of the Raleigh, need to do some research.

Paid $20 for the Schwinn, put new tubes, tires, and seat on it. The Raleigh I bought for $50, and replaced one inner tube.

One more pic of the bike. Has 10,000+ miles. Upgraded forks and bars/stem last year. Maybe looking to upgrade to a Ti frame in a year or 2 (maybe when I hit 15,000 miles). Remember, nothing makes you faster, stronger, or better than time spent in the saddle.

I have a 2006 Trek 1400, sorry no picture. But I really like it even thought it had a defective tube when I got it, I had a flat the first time I rode it. The problem was the tube was split next to the rim. I used to have a Lemond Tourmalet and wish I still had it and then I would have 2 road bikes.

Hey Billy...I warned you about getting rid of your LeMond didn't I?

Cheers,

Is it possible to get that frame and fork seperately? The exact one I mean

Very nice classic Davidson. In this day of compact frames and 10-speed cassettes, it's nice to see someone riding a lugged, steel frame with down tube shift levers.

Much Thanks! Just got it completed two days ago and I'm dying to ride her. It's been a decade since I got a new road bike (not counting the fixie). Still waiting for my Speedplay pedals and I'm this close to using the pedals from my Litespeed. The new pedals are scheduled to arrive this Friday, that might be too long of a wait though.

My road bike is a GT Edge Aero frame I bought a few years back.

I builit it up with a mix of Shimano 105 and Ultegra parts. (I'm a clydsdale -- two hundred and ninety something pounds.) So, I upgraded the stuff I thought most stressed by my mass. Especially the wheels: Ultegra hubs/Mavic Open Pro rims 36 spoke non butted 14 ga. I bought it to get in shape in NYC. Didn't know then how much I ouwld love road riding.

I was coming from a rural area where my house was ten minutes from a dirt trail so I used to Mountain Bike allt he time (Specialized Rock Hopper Comp frame. Everything except the cranks on that thing was replaced at least once.)

I know neither of these bikes turn heads here, but they make me happy.
