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?

Did you remember a big, caucasian, rosy-cheeked contra kid who joined in mid-season (possibly in Toledo)?

I was telling a friend at DCA Finals that everybody in drum corps knows everybody else, like the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon thing.

Maybe a little less true in junior corps, but definitely true in senior corps.

I finally got around to taking a picture of my first bike I got at the end of last month, 06 Felt F80 105 shifters and rear der. and a Tiagra front der. I got it on clearance at the LBS for 650, and he tossed in pedals and shoes for a total of 700.

thanks
but i think it's better have my first fall in my friends driveway than on a street.
the bike looks a bit different than what that one looks like. i'll put up a pic later when i get my hands on a digital camera, i think it looks much better this way with new tape and seat. the new seat isn't just for looks the old one made my butt and nether regions go numb in like 15-20mins this new seat got rid of that problem.

^Love that Aliante. I would have picked up a Cinelli if I didn't get a deal on my Wilier!

Actually, I wanted to post again to say this:

I don't throw around the word very often, but... there are a lot of genuinely beautiful bikes on here. What a neat thread.

(as if 260-something posts can be merely a "thread" )
