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?

Haven't posted in a while, thought I'd do some up to date pix...

recent changes include Thomson seat post and Michelin PRO3 tires....

sorry for the bad picture, my camera sucks (maybe it is just my photog skills )

The red accents are a nice touch.

trek had some boring paint jobs back in 2007.

Any suggestions on tire colors?

It seems I'm a week late in posting this, but those are some great pics. I posted pics of my bike (same bike as your first photo), but the pics didn't quite do it justice. Black tires with white diagonal-walls (for lack of a better word) would look really sharp. Impossible to keep clean tho.

I love them. If you have looked at them it looked like there is a spot on the inside that would rub/effect your thumb which I was worried about but it has not affected my hand positioning or anything. the shifts feel real smooth. I t has been a while since I have been on it, which makes me sad.

Colnago E1

Here is my Colnago E1. I bought last year new even though the frame was manufactured in 2005 (New Old Stock). It is equipped with Campagnolo Chorus 11 throughout with a compact (50-34) crank. The wheels are Campagnolo Neutrons.

Ah, the secret is to use a canon 1dsmkII full frame 16.7 mpx camera and a f/1.8 prime lens Camera cost more than the bike..
