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?

I can't say if it's freakin AWESOME yet or what. Still waiting on peddles and getting the bike fitted to me. But it sure does look cool and its so much lighter than my last bike.
Now if I can get back to into my old riding shape again I will be happy. Use to average about 300-400 miles a week. That was a few bacon cheese burgers ago and a beer or two thrown in to help the burger go down.

I currently have an S-Works SL3 Tarmac..


I am looking to get the Venge at the end of the year, so I am trying to convince my wife at the moment that it's a good idea!

I really like the look of the new F01L too - when the Green Edge team is officially full and out on the road, I reckon the sales of Scott bikes here in Australia will soar!

What else can you expect from a bike that is named after a toilet paper.

I like how the Campy crank on thatguy's Sachs doesn't look at all out of place. If he hadn't said what it was, I would've just guessed that the drivetrain was as old as the frame.

Just got this in the mail last week. Dont worry, the steerer tube will be cut once the fit is dialed in.

Just bought this bike for one of my best friends. He is currently riding a 73 Chswinn Le Tour with some issue that arises on almost every ride. He is 6'3" and I am 5'9" so I couldn't just give him one of my bikes. After scouring Craigslist for a deal I finally found the perfect bike for him. I tremendous upgrade from what he is riding with plenty of room for improvements. Plus it helps, the bike was made 2 hours away. My friends new birthday gift and road bike.

1988 Cannondale Criterium Shimano 105.


Pedals and Electrical tape around down tube will go. Aside from a new front tire, everything else is golden.

Here is a bike i recently bought for my girlfriend. She is 5'2" and was riding an old 70s road bike converted into a comfort bike. This gives her many more gears, much easier shifting, and 700c wheels (old bike was 622s I think) I know it's not a road bike. but I havent posted in like 2 months.

~1995 Giant Cypress
