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?

Nothing to change on the Cdale. I like a white bike with crisp black lettering. Sharp.

No idea what you mean about the stem.
While you're fiddling with the bike to take a picture to please the masses, take the time to properly adjust your taillight as well. It wont do a damn thing aimed at your back tire.

Don't speak for me. If an up stem is what works for the rider then it works for me.

Well, here is my new baby. I have only had a chance to put 250km on her so far, and love the ride (although may swap out the seat).

Yeah, shame about the pic, but the bike looks sweet - be nice to see it in a bigger pic!

beautiful bike, but you best make sure your spacer setup meets treks standards. i would hate to hear you (and the bike) went down from a broken steerer tube.

Before you swap out the seat, you should consider leveling it and potentially lowering it.

Thanks for the links! SRAM Looks cool, but had to be Di2, which I really love! (Even if it is not colour coordinated).

If I didn't already have a decent helmet and still good condition Oakleys, would consider the others too. Seat is a possibility, although more leaning towards this one:

Thanks. Yes, had heard of some of the problems, but my stuff is all compatable, so should be all good!

leveling the seat I can understand, but what are you basing the seat height adjustment on considering you've never seen him on the bike?

because for the most part, people tilt their saddles down because they're placed too high.
