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?

So, no more Alare for me, and no LOOK either. (I still have a Masi Commuter, though) I think I'll get a TIME instead.... (although I'm liking the Vincere and the Gran Criteriums this year....)

I like this bike! Ride the snot out of it for a year or two, but I see a Tarmac in your future.

Perhaps no one told you that federal law prohibits owning both a BMC Pro Machine and a Colnago EPS. Thus, you MUST give me your BMC in order to avoid prosecution. Post pics of the EPS when you've got them.

Sweet GT. I've always loved their seat stay configuration. My first road bike, too many years ago to remember clearly, was a hideous pink Shogun Ninja with Shimano 600 gruppo. Had it on the roof rack of my pickup when I drove through an ATM. Frame got bent almost in half. Bike rack came through unscathed. No more GT.
What saddle is on your bike?

Zatopek, Its a Selle Italia XO Fluid, I bought it mainly because it picked up the red of the frame and it looked more racy than the horrible foam black one it came with. I also have a 1950's Freddie Grubb with Campag Gran Touring gears which is a 'project'. I must post some pics of that sometime.

I just retired my 1985 Saronni which one a little too small for me and built up a 1991 Master Piu 2 days ago. Still setting up and will probably have its maiden voyage this weekend!

What is the nature of your question? While we're at it, what does "Hida Yanra" mean?

I think he's baffled by the concept of a roof-rack on a pickup.....

My Ridley Crossbow with road tires, I have the powertap on it at the minute. It rides great. I use it as my CX bike, my Commuter bike and my bad weather race and training bike.

I love me a Kestrel. That thing looks like it's moving sitting still..What are the other 2 bikes leaning on the garage in the Tarmac photos?

Cannondale CAAD 9 Liquigas -- Updated images...

Hi, all...

I've already posted images of my CAAD 9 Liquigas but the images were kinda outdated so they didn't fit with the description anymore. Anyway, below you can see some images of the bike as it looks now.

Mounted with my Shimano RS10 wheels...


Mounted with my new Vuelta Superlite wheels with a 42 mm alloy rim and one black spoke on each wheel...


Mounted with my Vuelta Carbon Pro tubular wheels...


A shot of the cockpit with Easton EA30 handlebar, Look HSD stem and Polar CS400. Handlebar tape is Fizik microtex...


My Prologo Choice saddle with Ti rails...


A shot from the front...


And finally a shot of my Litespeed Ti seat post...


Regards,
Jakob Laursen
