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

I love the look of the Y-foil frames. They look so low-slung and mean. Too bad they're illegal for UCI sanctioned races. That bike looks damn fast to boot. I don't really like Trek's, but, damn man. That's a hot ride.

Stumbled into the closet in the home office earlier today and was quickly reminded I've still got a spare Erickson Signature frame along with a '98 Bianchi Mercatone-Uno TdF Professional Team frame...

Ummm. Yeah, 53ish.

I'm guessing it's a good thing you didn't see the earlier posting with the ones that are actually built-up and in use...
