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?

Mooseworth,

You have exceeded your "very good looking bike" quota. No further good looking bikes will be permitted in your garage, and you must forward your pinarello to me, where it will be used for a good cause

No........... Just no!! You have to get real pedals on that bike. Apart from that it looks ok if you are just starting out road biking .

unacceptable. Reduce awesome level or get pedals that can handle it.

Oh noes... online bullying... I never thought I would be a victim!

Bought some Look pedals and a new saddle for it. The Romin saddle that came with it is destroying my ass.

Yearly posting of the same bike. '08 Lynskey R320, campy record/chorus mix, edge 2.0 fork, some of those fancy space age reynolds hoola hoops. 3T, Thomson, fizik bits, you get the idea... still riding great.

Well I finally got my new bike, 2012 R3 Team frame and fork(warranty replacement for a 2010 RS), SRAM Force Group(except chain and cassette) and Easton EA90 SLX wheels. This bike also has the SRAM BBright adapter which allowed me to use the Force cranks. Just picked it up this evening so haven't had a chance to ride it yet, except around the block. Sorry for the poor pics but all I had was my camera phone.

I picked up a Focus Cayo on closeout for a good price because I'm short. I took it to the top of San Bruno Mountain:




Another crappy cell phone pic.




It's my first carbon bike, and I'm highly pleased with it.
