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?

~'88 Trex 1200

105 gears and brakes. ****ty saddle. Armadillo Tires. Forte Cliples pedals. Unknown but comfortable handlebars. Fun as hell to ride and get in marathon shape without running in 100 deg heat.
Bought for $400 used at a bike shop with a fresh tune up and guarantee.

Its my air conditioned running shoes.

Not enough room to hook up the scanner in this house, so I hope this link works. I have a Trek 420 older roadie/tourer, a Trek 1000 roadie, and a Lemond Zurich. They are pics of them on the Bicycling Forum Pic Post on MSN.com. It's on page 14, under "Dchiefransom"s SF Gran Prix Photos". Got a few pics of Lance and George and others racing in the 2002 SF Gran Prix.

OK The new Bianchi is almost ready to ride. Just waiting on straddle wires and yokes for the brakes.
Specifications:
2000 Bianchi Volpe Reynolds 520 CrMo frame/fork - 52CM C-T.
Brooks Swift Titanium rail saddle on Thompson seatpost.
TTT Synthesis stem - 9CM.
TTT Forma bars 42CM.
1999 Campy Athena/Racing Triple drivetrain, 3 X 9 30-42-52; 12-23; 170MM cranks.
Campy Moskva 80 rims laced to Chorus hubs. Check out the spoke pattern on the front wheel!
Shimano Alivio cantilever brakes, which will be changed out to Campy Olympus units, currently on order coming from Germany.
No name headset(yucko) which will get Campy'd out when it dies.
Nashbar platform/spd pedals(so I can just hop on and ride to the store).
How do you say "Touring Bike" in Italian?

My god! I just realized that I didn't post in this thread yet!

Lemond Alpe d'huez. 853 frame, full 105, body geometry seat. straight up dead sexy. Picture rasta tape on this bike though. I crashed and ripped up this black tape. eh. nothing stays new for ever, right? Now my bike looks like I actually ride it.

My newest baby during her second tweak journey.




03 Raleigh Professional. At the moment, there are a whole bunch of Shimano bits where the fine Campagnolo craftsmanship should reside (acquired her as a frameset).For those of you who have written off this old school marque, you should take a close look at these bikes, simply beautiful.

all she needs is a set of nervex....[IMG]

Why yes, Chi, it is a Chorus 10 Spd Groupset with Proton Wheels. Picked it up at the Pinarello store in Treviso.

It's an AL frame with carbon fork and seatstays.

I paid about 2500 EURO without the IVA tax.
I actually intended to pick up a Galileo, but they wouldn't have a new one until after the wife and I moved back to the states and they asked if I would like the marvel frame instead. As you can see, I said "Yes."
