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?

Thats the standard Specialized tape for 2010. Very very comfortable and reasonably light

Lung,

You've got your Merlin posted all over BF, but I never get tired of looking at it. Its one of the nicest looking builds I've seen ever. It's also quite literally exactly the kind of build I'm looking at for my hopefully attainable dream bike. Nice job!

Has anyone tried out a Rossetti Road Bike?

I found Rossetti road bike on line and wondered if anyone owns one and how it performs?

Scatantte CFR Team Dura Ace

After going though so many pages of beautiful bikes, I am almost embarrased to put my bike here, but here it is.
I have already upgraded the brake calipers to Dura Ace as the stock were Textro R750's and I did not like thier performance. The Dura Ace are a world apart. 400 miles and I am very happy with the bike. The 50cm frame is perfect for my size, 5'8" as a smaller frame is stronger and lighter. 16.4 lbs with pedals.

Awesome! I have the same bike just the SRAM version. I love mine as well. How is the Control Tech crank working for you?
