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

Had my camera with me to work today. Took a quick picture.
Not a big deal, just a Giant OCR from 2002, running Shimano Tiagra. New seatpost is on, new stem and tires are on their way.

just posted it also in the "Italian Steel" thread
built this last year (pics are from day of the build) but only got about ten rides out of it before snowfall

my Casati Laser




most parts are Campy Record and Chorus w/Neutron wheels, Speedplay pedals, Cinelli 64 bar, Cinelli XA stem, Richard Sachs custom color Selle San Marco saddle
had to swap out the tires because the pre-mounted 23c hits the seat tube when inflated
really want to put some Veloflex on these wheels
