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?

Awesome, I always like seeing an Allez upgraded with premium components. Nice!

BTW, what is that box hanging off your seat post?

Thanks Steve and antmeeks! Those are the Chinese carbon wheels I got from last season and they were great!

As for my saddle, it was setup based on my knee position and that's how it is.

Love that Seigler, and the GT is fantastic too. I like bikes that can show up ones that cost about twice.

Had my local GT dealer order it. Stripped off the Dura Ace and Mavics that came on the bike, replaced with my SRAM Force and Reynolds

Why would you want to replace Dura-Ace?

Ok, I don't want to beat a dead horse, but I shortened those awfully long front cables (my doing). Last pic as she is done!

Horse isn't dead, it's really only just been born. Get out and ride it much yet?

Thanks X.
Not outside yet, weather not cooperating and still calcium on the streets. The next few days of rain should take care of that, leading to a weekend of riding bliss.

How about you?

Couple hundred miles in the recent month or so. The Force Carbon bike is riding like a dream. The weather has been quite amazing for the last couple of days and should hold out another week or so.

That GT rocks!. Miracle Trade looks like a very nice budget build. Never liked the seemingly excessively tall head tubes on the Allez.

I got in on the new model presale, so I paid $545 delivered for the 24f/28r. They've since gone to their regular price. Go to www.boydcycling.com

Wow some of you guys have some AMAZING bikes I can't even compare mine to but here is my custom road bike. It's a Ragatz alum frame with a carbon rear stay and fork using Campi Record components. I just had this built a week ago but looking at some better wheels soon.

ooo, I like the paint on the Ragatz. Sorta brings me back to the early 90s neon paint schemes.
