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

Good looking bike. One of the nicer paint schemes I've seen in a while. I like Treks just fine. Really, it's hard to go wrong with one. First roadie? You did good.

Here is my Sniper Racing custom! The first pic is the 853 Reynolds tubing in May 07 and the second is the finished piece a couple months later. 56 cm sloping downtube, reynolds fork, with Durace components.

Here is my 05 P1. Just put a king headset on yesterday. The Cane Creek started knocking on bumps quite a bit.

In the aero setup...

So many nice bikes - so here is mine - and yes - I prefer the 76 degrees seatpost - and my legs agree
Some would say it looks strange - but I don't care as long as I am comfortable and efficient on the bike.

Technically this is a touring bike, but it's meant for the road.

outstanding.
I really love my Waterford imo the best ride I have ever owned.
I have been thinking of getting another one with a stainless rear ti-angle R33 model.
The present one I have now is the 2200 lugged 853,rides like a dream.

what shade of white is that, nice and clean looking.

As I am slightly above the "standard" weight for a roadie (my main “focus” is around TT anyway ) (84 kg +/- 3 kg) – I tend to use these wheels only on good roads (and races) – although I must say, that I’ve done some training rides on them on less than average roads – and they are still true. No worries as far as hubs are concerned (AM) – but I’ve done less than 2k on them. At first I was a bit skeptical as the rims are only 24 holes – but all in all – wheels are good – nothing to complain (yet?). The hub is quiet – it rolls nicely – so it is thumbs up from me – and remember – I am relatively heavy and roads here a more than rough - so that is very positive. I don’t remember how heavy the wheelset is – but I can check that when I get home later today. All in all – I am satisfied with the purchase.

I might've mentioned it before in another thread, but man, I love those fenders. I wish I had a bike that could wear them and not look out of place.
