What road bike do you have?

Notices
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

Updated pic of my Bikes Direct Motobecane LeChampion Ti. After 6 months of service I can say that it has exceeded all my expectations. Going from a heavy aluminum to a (relatively) light Ti has been a world of difference.

Familiar bike but with a bit more color compared to last season...

New are the BTP derailleur clamp, hoods, pulley wheels and down tube shifter, and the Tiso tuning kit for the rear derailleur.

Are those the bar code scan stickers on those bianchis? The sitckers on the top tube and the front fork. What are those? They definitely take some of the appeal right out of the bike.

Finally bought my first road bike. Jamis Quest '04, steel frame, 105 brakes, Ultegra deraillers and dual controls, MAvic Cosmos wheels, Easton carbon fork and San Marco saddle. The owner rode it back in '04 and that's about it. Bought it for $450, what do you think?

Just bought the bike of my dreams, sorry no pics yet, but take my word it is an unbelivable ride and fit. Its a Serotta CIII with a ti fork, golden orange paint, C Record components, and the throne I sit on is a Brooks Swift Ti Saddle. I don"t know how Serotta did it but for a guy with a long turso and short legs, at 6' on a 56cm, they did it just right. Not just because its mine but WOW what a ride. Pics to come soon.

No. On mine I only have the ones on the fork, not on the top tube, and they are just the label that says Bianchi Cho-Mo Double Butted. It is the only trace of Celeste on my Bianchi! I'm a rebel!!

That is a seriously cool bike. But without a doubt, you spell it with a b, not a g like "drought".

Re-post, I didn't attach it correctly the first time.
Side question, How much would a used San Marco Aspide saddle from 2004/2005 go for?

Good luck with it, sounds like you got a great deal Herschey.
I don't know how long you have been riding, but looking at the tilt of your seat, you may find it more comfortable to tilt the nose a bit more level with the back.
Just a suggestion.
Ride safe but ride hard!!

I got it last night and have been adjusting after every ride today but I still haven't found that sweet spot on the saddle (San Marco Aspide). I'm considering selling it and testing a few others out.
