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?

A pic of my new ride; works out really well so far. The pic was taken during the PBP, hence the clutter on the bike.

Still riding my '79 Schwinn LeTour, though have been playing Frankenstein with it lately. Got a new set of Matrix Aurora 700's with Shimano 105 hubs/8 speed cassette, mounted Forte' Strada-K 23s on it. Don't have all gears working smooth yet, can't even get bottom gear, the old Shimano 400 FF doesn't want to reach without sticking itself in the spokes. Shaved a couple pounds off the big ol block of rolling iron!

So you're just mad somebody can afford nicer things than you and you BELIEVE you know more how their bike should be set up than they do simply because you covet it more? That is laughable at best.

Mine weighs in at about 23.7lbs without the rack, fenders, light and pedals. With those it's about 28. Very relaxed position for a drop bar bike, and you can cover some serious miles on them very comfortably. Does yours have the round stem, or the flat topped cast Schwinn one?

UCIMBZ keep flipping burgers, don't get discouraged, some day you may get a real job and be able to buy a real bike.

I will be here this weekend we can do the ride together let's see if you and you 1990s steel bike can hang: https://www.cyclenorthgeorgia.com/ind...k=blogcategory

I still have faith in the educational system of this country. With that I am sure you will learn to read, use the search function and flip the stem by the time you graduate high school.

You wrote flip it, not flip the stem. I graduated from Harvard in 1991 and finished my MBA at MIT in 1994, so I am fairly well educated.

I have faith in hard work, so keep flipping those burgers, save your pennies and maybe some day you can afford the pedals I have on this bike....................
