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

Hey,

I just joined and I thought I'd post a shot of my road ride.

57cm 2002 Orbea Force Carbon
DuraAce 9 spd
Mavic Open Pro rims w/DA hubs
Reynolds Uzo Pro Integrated

Picked up the frame, fork and headset lightly used 2 years ago for $600. Swapped over all the parts, except wheels and fork, off my Moser Over after it was crunched by a car. The Orbea has been a nice ride since. I really notice the smoother ride with the Deda carbon seat stays over the all aluminum Over.

American Classic 350 Sprints
Vredestein Fortezza TriComp tires
Ritchey WCS bars

And the bike that is now the winter bike:

2003 Specialized Sequoia Sport (54cm)
Stock except for a Fizik Pave saddle, Ultegra pedals (getting moved to the LOOK unless I find a deal on some Keo's), Viewpoint headlight, Armadillo tires, and some other stuff no one cares about.

It is, thanks to the short, sloping top tube, two cages, Road Morph pump, and battery. But it works.

Check! You don't see those Morati's often enough.

Well, I do, since my buddy rides a SC 1.1 (he had it built with Chorus). It's the more straightforward version, with the less fancy tubing. Beautiful bike, nice finish, flawless welds.

Seems on the heavy side for such high-zoot components.

16.4 lbs heavy .??. I guess everything is relative. The reason is the frame = 1500 g .. it is built to last a few yrs, as opposed to those sub 900g ..Time will tell..
