What road bike do you have?

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?

I'm not sure which bag he has mounted there, it looks identical to my Avenir expandable bag. Same shape and size. Holds my CO2 inflator, 2 extra cartridges, a spare tube, patch kit, house key and at times my cell phone, in the tight shape, it expands with the bottom zipper.

Should be getting my new frame and handlebars this week. But in the meantime, my setup is still a 2010 SuperiorLite SL Club w/ Sram Force, S-lite wheels and Carbonio Flow Selle Italia Saddle. All the force stuff will be going onto new bike when it arrives.

What brand/model components are you replacing the Manocoque with (I just had to say Manocoque)?

Attached is a picture of my very clean mid 80's Panasonic DX5000. The bike does everything I need for it to do, except that my 72 year old knees require more help in the hills. If I could find a triple crank that would offer an acceptable chain line that would be great. The stock crank is so attractive, it would be difficult to replace it. The Tange 1 frame is pretty lively, especially with my winter weight 180 pounds. Hopefully, when I get down to a more acceptable 165 lbs, it will be just as much fun.

Yup, never mind the brutal cross chaining, it's the QR lever that jumps out at you.

Thanks. The cassette is from Recon and I bought it from m-bikeparts.com, located in Germany. I know fairwheelbikes sells them as well but they didn't have the 11-25 that I wanted.

Loving it!
But I am coming from road riding a mountain bike so basically I went from a truck to a GT car!
Much smoother ride, more stability & lots of braking power& a surprising comfortable riding position.
I have a 53 mile route that is 99% bike paths & after a ride I feel so much better than I did after the same ride on the mtn bike!

Did you receive it equipped with the 105 crank? What year is that? The Specialized site indicates an FSA Gossamer crank on the Secteur Expert Disc Compact, rather than an actual Shimano 105.

I ask because Stages doesn't make a power meter for FSA cranks, only for Shimano (all BB), SRAM (GXP versions, not BB30) and Cannondale (BB30) cranks. Since I'd really like for my next bike to be compatible with the Stages Power Meter, I've had to cut bikes that come with FSA or Rotor cranks off my list!

It is a 2013, it came stock with FSA crank, I had it swapped for the 105 Black for $150 at time of purchase.

As a real world bike it's a great concept, nice bike.
