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?

Those are different but also look nice. They don't have the extension coming out the top as the ones pictured do.

Been wanting to put a pic of my bike up for a while. I'm a 2-3 times per week kinda rider, 25-45 miles per ride. Have been real happy with this bike. Anyway, specs:

Frame/fork: 2006 Trek 1500 58cm
Group: Ultegra 10 speed
Cranks: FSA carbon something
Wheels: Neuvation M28 Aeros
Tires: Conti 4000s
Saddle: Felt Carbon (no carbon involved, just by name)
Components: Ritchey WCS
Pedals: Shimano low-end SPD-R
I could be wrong here, I'm not an expert.... but I am almost positive your chain is a bit long. I'm surprised you don't have shifting problems...

That being said, I love this bike... I also bought a BD bike, swapped all the parts off with my Bianchi and then unloaded the BD bike with older components.

Thanks, I painted it myself with Rustoleum Silver Hammered Paint. It's holding up pretty well too.

Thank you
The comfort is alright for long distance riding, I did a complete brevet series (200, 300, 400, 600, 1000 km) on it last year. Manouvering is a bit sluggish, I've had more agile bikes.
How is the stiffness on the Roubaix frame? I've been thinking of buying a new bike and it looks absolutely stunning.

Farkin' beautiful.

Do you like to roll down cielo a little bit and descend San Marcos or go straight back down? Gibraltar is a little bit sketchy at the top...

As I rode it today, pardon the iPhone picture. Trying to get the stem height figured out and riding on the trainer and short outdoor rides doesn't really facilitate that.

Down periscope here finally.



Might not be the lightest bike here but I sure can haul on it. Upgrading my engine before I upgrade my wheels.

Yeah, was for sure a bit rough at the top. I went across then down through Painted Cave.
