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?

I love that Felt. Probably the sweetest bike I've seen here, even if the cranks don't say SRAM on them.

Thanks man! Campy is definitely sexy, but Di2 shifts very well and has been a no hassle setup since I've had it.

I started with the frameset, yes. The only thing really different from the stock F1 are the 404 CCs, stem, post, and saddle though!

BH made adapters for Hollowtech II that press into the BB30 shell, allowing you to run a Shimano crankset. They are pressfit cups that house the bearings.

A couple changes:

- Sram Red shifters & rear derailleur
- Sram Red-Black edition 53T chainring & Sram Red 42T
- Rotor 3D crankset
- ENVE decals (replaced the original EDGE 1.68 decals)

Just bought a Trek 2.1 - my first real road bike. I pick it up later this week - can't wait to try it out.

The Cervelo looks real good...but something about the Enve decals look a bit off. :/

I picked up a new set of Rotor 3D's also...off a Cervelo.

Looking good there!
I am contemplating those wheels myself but never liked the yellow stickers on them ... my bike is completely raw carbon black and now that I've seen these wheels in their naked version I feel I totally need them ... waiting for the right second hand deal to come along

Appreciate the feedback
I do have a set of Fizik bar tape in gloss red that I may throw on next.

Thanks. I have to admit though, I only get to put on about 150 miles a week, 200 if I'm lucky to squeeze in an extra day of riding. But after every ride, I spend a good 20-30 mins cleaning it up. I'm just as meticulous with this bike as I am with our car/suvs.

My group and I also said the same thing about the ENVE decals. I removed the wing-liked part of the decals that came with it. But I may try a new set cut out in a gloss black finish, just like new ENVE 6.7 wheelset decals.

And great looking crankset
I'm going to try the Q-rings next; I recently installed a set on my brother's carbon soloist and so far, no complaints.

My wheels have the gloss back on carbon (Reynolds). It looks hawt. Do it do it.

Same here. I think the anodized pieces and the matte black frameset and EDGE fork stands out from the everyday, typical, road bike. Nicely done.
