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?

Looks good bianchigirl. If you don't need the rise (or even if you do), it's time to start looking for a new, slimmer stem, though.

I upgraded from a Trek hybrid to a Trek 1600 in Oct 2007. Put about 3500mi on it so far and it's holding up very well. Good compromise between components and $$. Problem is, I now have the itch to move up again ;-)

My Pozzuoli De Rosa

Here's my mid-1980's 8-speed De Rosa. This is a handmade Antonio De Rosa de Pozzuoli, not Ugo De Rosa -- the more common make with the red heart in the "o". The color saturation of the yellows and reds (original paint) on this bike is amazing! Has a mix of Campagnolo Record and Dura Ace. I have started to switch the entire groupo back to Campy Record. Very light for a steel frame...Columbus airplane tubing, I think.

Truthfully, it's been very hard to find details of the origins of the bike. No serial# on the BB. In an email from the the maker in Italy, even he did not know for sure the year and lineage. If anyone knows more about this beautiful machine, please let me know.....

Here's the latest build. I still have to do some shakedown rides and get the saddle angle and bar position dialed in.

They've been around for more than 100 years. They have currently three road bikes in their scheme, varying from a Shimano 2200 equipped one to a Shimano Tiagra equipped one. Pretty low end bikes for quite a high price. Though, all I can compare the Tiagra one with is my own Tiagra equipped Giant OCR. The Puch is priced €400 higher than my OCR originally was.

That bike comes stock with egg beaters?

I must say that you have one of the more attractive Cervelos I have seen in here.

Cheers,

Nice. What year Noah is it? Have you ridden other Ridleys before this? If so, how does it compare?

Only been riding for a couple months now. Bought my first bike 7 days ago and just finished my 7th ride on my new 09 Specialized Allez Elite Compact in gloss charcoal. I am addicted and in love, great bike with no complaints.

it's a 2008. My cross bike is a Ridley as well. I don't think I can compare them. It feels faster than any other bike I have ridden up to now (although that may be because it was designed to fit me as perfectly as possible).
