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

Tetra Pro

I ride Tetra-Pro by Calfee, black; it has Campy components, I use sow-ups/tubulars by Tufo.
The cranks are 172.5 with keo classic pedals; sidi shoes. The fork is by BRC- Profile Design. Computer is Polar S710i
Love my bike.

I also ride a GRR recumbent, however when I want to feel aggressive & fast the Tetra-Pro is it.

Hyunelan2 - Looks like you scored a great buy. One thought looking at the pics. Your seat looks to be angled down substantially. If you're getting used to a different fit/geometry, keep in mind that the starting point for a racing saddle is dead level - OR - very slightly nose up. This helps to throw your weight back off your hands/wrists.

Finally, a chance to brag about my new workhorse: ADK Bottecchia with Ultegra compact group, Selle Italia SLR XP saddle, FSA SL-K carbon seatpost, Deda Newton (silver) anatomic bars, Ritchey Comp stem and... the old Shimano 540 pedals from my old bike (look all beat up but work perfectly well). Went cheap on the wheelset - Shimano WHR560. Perfect training bike.
Oh what the hell. For me, it's the perfect everything bike.



Yeah, those snowbanks are that tall. In fact, they were even bigger but it's getting... gasp... warmer.

Nice build ezoons! I've always liked how shimano brifters look on Deda anatomic handlebars.

Thanks. I was thinking about their classic bend handlebars but went for the anatomic bars. Shorter arms appreciate the shorter reach

This thread is way to fancy so I'll cheapen it up a little. This is my first step into road bikes. She is totally stock at this point. I'll be up grading things later but I have some other things that have to come first. This is exactly how she was the night I went to pick her up from a craigs list seller for $300

2005 Specialized Allez Triple 58cm

I posted this in the Ti thread but I'll add it here too. I just replaced the 9sp with 10sp DA and a Ultegra SL compact crank.



It's raining today but I'll get a photo outside in the next day or so and add it here.

My dad and I put this M2 Pro together for me around 1997 to replace my Bridgestone 300. We bought the frame at the lbs spring swap meet with the seat, seat stem and fork. The rest is from parts we had laying around. Most components are 1985-86 Campagnolo Victory, w/ a Victory LX rear derailleur and a Super Record front, which is a braze-on mounted to a modified Shimano clamp... brake levers are Campagnolo Triomphe. The pedals are MKS RX-1 came off my parents Santana Visa (Dad had clipless and didn't need them, I never made the plunge) The Victory pedals had a bent spindle iirc. wheels are campy rear / suntour, and specizlied front. New tires are in the works... I like the mix of (what was then) new, and old. I'm trying to get an exact date & more info on the frame, so if you know please send me a note.

Some more pics of my new bicycle.







Thought I'd try something new with the pictures as I don't have a garage.

I think you should use someone else's garage then

I bet that is a nice bike...from what I can see.

Cheers,

Brian

Here you go Brian, just for you. I had a naked carbon 2007 frame which passed on to the great carbon scrap yard in the sky. Unfortunately they didn't have those left so I opted for the black white. Stuck with the Ultegra SL. Kudos to BMC and the local dealer for great customer service. One of the reasons I chose BMC was the great lbs here and I have not been disappointed at all.

After around a hundred miles of minute adjustments and whatnot. I'd say I'm done with this bike. After being on track bikes for a few years now, I can't believe how damn fast this thing is. Me = in love.

Not to mention the kickstand. Nice touch.

actually, I put a lot of time into choosing it back when we built it and I still like it, I guess I'm just weird like that. I really should change it out with yellow and black marble since my jersey is yellow and black, then I'd be super cool.
