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

^^^ How do you like that mirror?? I've been wanting to get a mirror and so far that one has been my favorite design out of all of them I've looked at.

Does it actually provide enough angle of view to make out what's approaching from behind?

Nice, Sram Red on first road bike. Just make sure you flip the stem and remove the dork disc.

Here's my two, the Gunnar is about a year old now and has a mix of DA 7800 and Ultegra 6600, Thomson and 3T finishing kit with headset and BB courtesy of Chris King, and after years of searching ive finally found 'my' saddle, Selle Italia's Flite TI is the business! The Specialized is new to me Last month and takes the place of my new s/s training bike, easy to maintain and ive got no worries thrashing it around the English country lanes in the depths of winter! Its not got many standard parts left on it, luckily someone else took the hit upgrading everything then came along and bought it for a song! There are some fantastic bikes on here Teevoe's Fuji on page 834 being an awesome example, and he has a fine taste in saddle!

My Marinoni. Just built it up using a healthy dose of Dura Ace 7400 components, Cinelli, and random modern stuff.

I too have made the switch form a MTB to a Road bike. I just can't take the big hits like it use to. So picked this stuff up. I'm still waiting on the rest of my gear to arrive before I can break her in. Specialized Comp Road shoes, Look Keo Classic pedals, Specialized helmet, Pearl Izumi quest shorts and Elite barrier Jacket. Here's a crappy shaky cell phone picture I was so excited. I'll get better ones once it's complete.

Not sure which I would rather have. It's cool to see such similar builds (save age)

Very classy. The 7700 groupset is very nice and suits your Marinoni very well. I am still undecided on what bottle cages to get for my Marinoni. I am drawn to the Velo Orange Moderniste in the interests of keeping with the traditional esthetic.

2012 Giant TCR Composite 1

I was a Giant Defy 3 disciple for 2 years until I hopped on a TCR for a joyride. Then things went dark and before you know it I owned a TCR. I fear it controls me now.....I have gone to the dark side.
