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?

Just picked it up last Friday. Custom steel, only thing that fits me. 18 lbs. Choke chain is from my dog that recently passed away. Had her for her whole life, neva 4 get. Best bike I've ever put between my legs.






It knows its bad.

18lbs without choker (though I say with, sentimental remembrance has negative weight). I plan on upgrading the piss out of it. This will probably the last frame I ever get, honestly. Pending car accidents and such. Or until I can get a moots .
"Nice bike. Someday, I will also own a steel bicycle..." GET ONE, preferably from soulcraft. Sean Walling knows what hes doing.

I know, that struck me as odd as well. Though with the simplicity found in cycling, it would make sense that good frames have a name including the word soul, are made by people named sean, and are custom built.

Plus, a Tarmac doesn't have flattened, flexible seatstays and chainstays like that Look does (although he didn't take any pictures that show them well).

Maybe he's talking about the paintjob.

Good proportions on the Soulcraft. Nice setup. Do you always carry about your chains. Shouldn't they stay in your bedroom.

I recall that's the chain from his recently deceased dog. Emotional value.

She carries me up hills, and scares the crap out of anyone I'm chasing (she has a tendency to go "clank clank clank clank" with every pedal stroke in a standing sprint).
Im surprised it turned out looking as hot as it did, though, considering its custom and I have stupid long femurs. The seat and head angles are 71, and there were many "are you sure's?" regarding the bottom bracket offset. You wont see me happier than when its in between my legs.
