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

What road bike do you have?

This is a very nice riding bike. Only ounces heavier than my vintage Marinoni.

"Could be" is not close enough to it actually being your bike. Besides that it's a fixie.

Just picked this up the other night. It's not a great pic, but I haven't had much time yet. One 30 mile ride so far and all is well...
