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?

Seen this bike on the boards here before and I like it too & I'm not the biggest "red bike" fan. I think it's the white forks, just adds some optimistic fun pop!

The white does really set it off, I thought the same thing when I saw it first as well.

Thanks. I really wanted a white bike, but I got a great deal on this so I bought it. If it wasn't for the white fork and tape I'm not sure I would like it nearly as much as I do.

Well you did great. It can be funny sometimes how a colour you do not like can be presented in a way you suddenly find attractive. My bike is green and silver and I love the look of it and I HATE green. I didn't even like the bike when i first saw it but it has grown on me quite a bit.

Nice job.

Cheers,

Brian J.

I used to ride a lot 5 yrs ago. I still have my 2002 Giant TCR 2. Took it out for a spin and damn it's been too long. I almost feel like it's too much bike for me.

Those TCR's are awesome. Can't be too much bike for you, only for your ability at the moment. Any pictures?

It's stealing the show just a bit. The shifters and brakes are just a fail imho...

That's such a neat bike. I rode one last week and put it among my last three or four picks for New Bike For Me.

I just picked up a 2009 Felt F95 Team last Thursday. I'm not big on the paint scheme, but didn't feel like waiting the month or two for the next batch of standard 1010s.
