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

What road bike do you have?

I dunno, the Pedal Force looks nice, but I think I like the Team Sky Dogma... (I'm partial to the blue)

That is a fantastic-looking bike. Love it. The 58s, the frame, and the way you have complemented the white all over.

Yup. Mine are frame material stickers under the clear coat. Color doesn't match the red frame. I bought it cheap locally. It rides very nice so I am satisfied. The Campy gears simply works great. Shifters are still very crisp.

Another suggestion,,,, Try adjusting it during the ride,, and I dont mean while you are riding. Get off periodicly and give it a small adjustment then ride a few more miles, to see how it feels. also alot of people have had luck with the fisik saddles, and the bike shops can measure you for the proper width. I'd recomend the Brooks if you wanted to go for the bucks. Once again good luck.

Serottas are often referred to as "dentist's bikes"

The one person I know who rides Serotta has it not because she's a dentist but because she has a 23" inseam and can't fit anything else.

Here's the odd thing about the Serotta,,, it's registered as a 56,, but for the life of me I can't find a single tube that measures 56cm, but what a fit!!! I donno how they did it but they did it perfect.
NOT THE DENTIST!

If you didnt see Waynes World the question of your worthiness is quite moot. But the P.F is a beautiful bike. Enjoy!

How passionate we are about our rides, and the care we take to keep them rolling, do we define them or do they define us, maybe a little of both. But one thing is for sure we are an elite crew! we are cyclists! we are outcasts, and damn proud of it. When we ride we are free so let the drivers honk and cruse, pity them for they will never feel the joy of the freedom we know. Love who you are to the soul we are CYCLISTS we are OUTCASTS and we are brothers on the road, so ride well my brothers.
YESTERDAY IS GONE,TOMORROW HAS NOT YET ARRIVED, TODAY IS FAST BECOMMING YESTERDAY.
Best to all my brother and sister CYCLISTS.
