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?

+1 on the spooky.
+1 you'd better race that thing


The fork on my rig is a funda pro from an S1. I'm using it because it's what I already had and it's a good fork. I got it for $150 brand new from my LBS about a year ago when I needed a new fork.

Thanks, man. I'm very happy already. It will be raced. Got a (merckx) time trial coming up this month, then my first real road race in October. Hoping to get my real license in January and start racing regularly.

Going from a 53 big ring to a 50 is a lot weirder than I thought. Near future investments will be: road pedals (I've been using Time ATACs), shorter stem, new saddle.

Yes, it is a great fork, the color scheme just looks pretty funny on your bike, especially with the "Cervelo" on the inside of the fork legs.

Crappy cell pic. Put some whitewalls on for the state crit champs this weekend. I guestimate a 3-5 mph advantage.

I just switched over to them from Michelin. Only had them on the road for a couple of weeks. Them seem to ride a little smoother, but it may be just the new equipment effect.

Ok, we have an '87 Trek aluminum, one of the 1st and a Diamondback centurion TG, both still desirable old rides, the trek may have 300 smiles on it only-original tires!
