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?

Haven't weighed the bike yet... Need a chain and front derailleur before I do so.

Maybe I don't have my reading glasses on, but how is this bike defying gravity?

I'm digging the Litespeed and the Seven. The frames just seem more durable than carbon.

My preference has always been having titanium frames. I have no plans on having carbon frames only if it was given to me free.

I rode those very same wheels for 6 years with no issues and I am 210lbs. Those wheels are tougher than you think.
