What road bike do you have?

Notices
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?

I sold my '06 Trek Pilot 1.2 to my son-in law and bought a close out LeMond Versailles.
What a joy to ride. It has a steel/carbon fiber frame. Shimano 105 equipped except for Ultegra Rd and Bontrager cranks, triple chainring model with 52-40-30 and nine speed cassette. I put a Brooks B 17 on it yesterday.

Nice 531Aussie, but those pics are way to small. Give us a link to the real stuff.

And this is addressed to too many of you:
BIKES ARE TO BE PICTURED DRIVE SIDE AND CHAIN ON BIG RING! PERIOD!
Sorry for yelling

I just purchased a used 2002 Cannondale Road Warrior 700, mint condition for $350. Light as a feather and a pleasure to ride.

it's a tiny bit small for me, but my main gripe is that the chain stays jut out in such a way that, because I ride with my toes out (heels in), my heels sometimes whack into the stays which is very annoying. Other than that, I really liked it.

I know; I can't figure out how to get the server to host larger pics. The site just shrinks them down

Sorry, that was sarcasm. If the dork disc was a tad bigger, it would be an aero wheel.

on the fence right now about whether or not to sell in favor of a new bike with a more modern drivetrain and *gasp* a triple chainring crankset!
