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?

It's the only saddle that is good for me.
I had a cystitis last year, had nothing to do with cycling, but every saddle I used hurt in the end.
Which this "rock" I can do millions...
One small note, you need to have good bibs like Assos because these saddles are very hard.

I don't mind they look a little bit weird as long as they do the job.

I lived in MD for about 4 years. Never once saw a single bike rider anywhere and yet the BF population seem to be mostly from MD LOL...............

Not cheap, they are extremely rare. Mine was $80, they are very nice stems though. All CNC milled very stiff (Cipollini used them) plus the cutouts are sexy. I love mine.

My hand-me-down

A Campagnolo from the early 90's, I believe.







No clue about anything on this bike, since I'm a total newbie to cycling. It used to have old school Cinelli drops, but I needed to put new ergos on it. Also added the Cateye enduro, Fortezza tires, and trued the wheels (to the best of my ability with a cheap truing stand).

I think the next steps are a new saddle, new pedals (those mavics are hefty!), and new brake pads. Other than that, the bike rides pretty well, although I have no basis for comparison.

Comments appreciated.

Don't ever sell those brakes. They're rare and quite valuable... just look on eBay.

If you're looking to replace the saddle, I'd be happy to purchase the old one from you. Just drop me a PM.

All in all, a very nice ride. You'd be hard-pressed to do better for a first road bike.

Deda makes shallow and deep drop versions of the Newton bar. I ride the deeps and always have a spare set just in case. The difference in the reach and drop is very noticeable between the two versions.

Tarmac S-Works Tdf - Warranty Claim

Hi All.

I had to call for a Warranty claim on my Tarmac S-WORKS TdF 2006 - That I Love the most...., But the option was to get Tarmac SL 06 OR 07.

My verdict was The Tarmac SL 06 becuse in 07 they change the geometry of the Tarmac..

Thanks you all in Specialized

Everest AC-1 Attack. Being only 16 years old, it's a damn fine bike for me. Full Dura Ace group, Ritchey WCS components. I was told it weighs 6.9 kgs by the seller.

That's a good price on that frame...compared to what I paid for mine. Picked mine up over the summer it had about 100 miles on it. I'm very happy with.
