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

Here in Kansas we call that "blue".

My only complaint is what looks like the cable routing through the bars. I don't think i'd like it on the back side... then again I've never tried it, either.

my new Kestrel Talon w/105's - already upgraded seat and tires

acquired 10/19 , broke elbow 10/26 , back in saddle 8 days later - odometer is reading 335 miles, elbow is getting to be almost pain free




love the talon, 55 CM perfect fit for my short legs and elongated hefty torso - 5'10 275 lbs with a 79.8 CM inseam - handles my weight with ease...

Yeah but man, that's a heck of a bike for a college student! I sure wouldn't want to be riding that to class and leaving it outside. Heck I'd probably even be suspicious my roommate might gank it or something

The winter road bike that doubles as my light weight tourer. Not as fast of a ride as my regular roadbike but the ride quality is amazing and I stay dry from road spray on those rainy/snowy days......
Surly Cross Check.

That is a work of art. Very nice use of the, now way overly used and insanely boring, black and white paint scheme

Wow, I love the look of this.
Practical yet classy at the same time.

Haha thanks! It's definitely not my campus bike, and I keep it locked up in my room. It's my baby
