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

Here's my new road bike. Tarmac SL4 Pro with the new SRAM Red. The maiden voyage was on the trainer but I was able to ride it around the parking lot some. I can't wait to get it out on the road.

I have a Cannondale H300 from the year 2000. I don't know much about it. Has Shimano gears and stuff. That's about it.

Finished building and adjusting my Mr. Pink tonight. The quality of this frameset is impressive, I'm very happy I went with it. Had a hell of a time getting the cable tension right for the rear derailleur, I can see it being something I'll need to keep an eye on. I should be able to get it out for a little bit before too long but my lungs don't agree with winter air, so its maiden voyage may be a short/sad one.

Cool All-City. I was close to pulling the trigger on a Nature Boy, but decided it was too nice to use as a 'beater.' I still want one, though, of course.

Thanks guys. I'm in between building a nature boy or just getting a mountain bike to ride offroad. The Nature Boy is a sweet bike.

Oh, forgot - another bike has come along since I looked at the NB. Check out the Raleigh Furley if you're interested in a SS/CX. Sweet lookin' bike, disc brakes, can be run geared, too.

Those are nice too! I picked one up locally for a friend and shipped it to him because he couldn't find one in Philly. I had to ride it for a bit before I shipped it out. It rode nice and was definitely a good quality bike.

Sweet All City. Nice build. Clean, simple, classic lines. Although I'll get laughed at for this, I too often find my SRAM Red and Force rear derailleurs a bit persnickety in initial setup. Let us know how it shakes out after a few hundred miles. If I can find the motivation, I'll get a pic of my recently finished KTM Srada LC winter build, that will see its maiden voyage tomorrow, online for your perusals.

Brought this home today....



Plus got $150 in extras ($120 when you subtract the cost of Performance buyers club). Immediate changes included the addition of Fizik tape and the judicial removal of reflectors and the "dork-disc". I'd file the fork tabs down, but don't want to risk the UCI fines.... Going to give that saddle a try, but keep an eye out for a good deal on a Romin if I absolutely hate it.

Thanks for the compliments all. I was pretty taken with it myself when I first saw it. Got it out yesterday for it's first ride, not like any aluminum frame I've ridden before...rides very nice! And I was completely surprised at how well it fit right out of the door. Some minor saddle adjustments, and it's almost dialed. Granted, I did research the geometry before getting it. The BB30 set up is ridiculous and the tapered carbon fork gives a very nice ride also.

Funny too is that in all the 25 years of riding and 12 of them working in shops and building my own frames...I've never actually just bought a bike.

Sweet bike....I dig my Romin.

My newest, I built up this Mercier after finding the brand new frame and fork on Craigslist for $100. Too good a deal on a Reynolds 853 frame to pass up. It has all Campagnolo Record 10 parts and wheels.

This little beast here...running Campy Record 11, very light (1000 grams a pair) of tubular wheels on 22mm Gatorskins, just under 15 pounds. I have been removing spacers and it's very likely that it will end up with just one since I feel very comfortable like that. I will have the fork cut in the next few days...

New to biking. This will be my 2nd full year. Thinking of getting a 2013 Cannondale Synapse. Any feedback on these bikes? Have yet to test ride one, still doing research.
