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 am pleased with the ride but I feel I have to baby it more. I could run over anything on the mountain bike but this one is more delicate. Plus I have to slow down and be ready to snap out of the pedals at every blind stop sign. I could stop on a dime with the MTB.

They're not as delicate as they seem, I have jumped curbs, and bunnyhopped plenty of crap on mine, never had a problem. Nice bike

I like Strava (I don't pay for the premium), gives you route info, map, speed, elevation...

Take a picture from the other side so we can really see what it looks like. (Front in highest chainring)

Also. Very nice bike. It's always exciting getting a new ride, keeps the motivation going easy. Welcome to the forums.

Take picture from drive side so we can see the goods. How's it been treating you so far? It's a great ride.

Either way, both the trek and raleigh are all CF bikes. Or 'The Carbon Fiber' if you will.
