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?

Thanks everyone. The V-II rides great. The white wheels are a new look. I was running Dura Ace carbon clinchers (pics of previous build on page 541, post # 13522).

You should see the butchering I did to the left handle bar tape.

Knowing is totally unimportant, what's important is that you agree that she's the best

Here's my steed!





I've had it for 3 years thus far. Aside from the tires everything is original - as you can tell. I am a competitive runner and originally bought the bike for cross training (and because I've always loved cycling). On account that I rarely cycled for more than 4-5 hrs a week I found it hard to warrant purchasing any upgrades. Now that I am starting to incorporate cycling in to my running (more often) as an additional aerobic stimulus I just might have a reason for buying some components/upgrades! On another note, don't worry I am to flip the stem soon.

Edit: I removed the decals on the front rim since they were a bit shoddy and distracting, I think it looks a bit cleaner - I still have to take of the decals on the rear rim!

Hate to follow that S-Works, but my budget won't allow such indulgence. Someday....

Just finished my latest ride. Got my first 40 miles on it today. Much nicer than the old 5200 USPS TREK beast I replaced.

This is my second road bike and I picked this baby up for 350. It's also basically brand new since he only rode it once.
Sorry for the crappy iPhone picture though.
