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

Well to be honest I haven't taken it out since most of the upgrades. I live in Wisconsin so its kinda hard with all the snow. Last week there was one sort of decent day so I took a spin round the block. The carbon fork helps alot with the ride, and I'm sure the Race X Lite post will help even more. I can tell a definite difference in the stiffness of the crank, braking, and stem (was an adjustable). Shifting is night and day better, going from 2200 with sunrace cassette to Full Ultegra. I really haven't been on many other bikes to give a good comparison (only an older trek 1000), but I sure as hell love how it rides/handles. My Steel Fixie is a bit more plush but thats to be expected when comparing aluminum to steel. I'm very happy all around

My Colnago C50 PR02.
2007 Campy Record, Euros wheelset, Fizik Aliante saddle, Deda stem and handlebars.
Tried to keep the build all Italian in the spirit of Ernesto Colnago but opted to use a Chris King headset and Conti tires not to mention the DA pedals.
