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

Did you change something about the bike since originally posting it? Either it's grown on me or you did something, but I actually like it now.... A lot....

This was a pic I took Sunday morning, after taking it out on its first ride with the new paint and EPS. Nothing new, just waiting for the bottle cages to get delivered tomorrow.

Thanks. It is a great machine that makes one want to get out and ride more!

I'll have the stem lowered a couple more mm in a few weeks, I think.

A blue seatpost collar would round out that black bike nicely IMHO.

X-linked that looks mad tons better without the red sidewall tires. The red tires are definitely a much hotter look on the black bike with red hubs.

2004 Cannondale Ironman 600. Shimano 105. Selle Royal gel seat and stock brakes. Forté aero bars, Strada Cateye cadence computer, Mavic rims, Continental Gatorskin tires. Made a few upgrades since photo was taken: New chain, 105 front derailleur, rewrapped bars with white gel tape.

Lots of stock parts but upgrading as I go along. Nice, fast bike. Hope to upgrade to some clip pedals.

Ballin on a budget over here, don't hate too much! First jump into a bike with multiple gears since I was probably 12. Also the first complete bike I've purchased, I prefer to destroy my bank account and build from scratch. Coming from the bmx and single speed world. I just got it last weekend put about 30ish miles on it and doing 30-40 miles tomorrow, can't wait!


Trimming the steerer tube soon. Also, after some research these wheels can be upgraded without spending an arm and a leg and losing nearly a pound of rotational weight. Looking at Boyd Rouleur's! Anyways, you guys have some awesome bikes, the black Parlee is amazing.

Here's mine, 2007 Specialized Tarmac S-works Q/S edition, I've had it for about 5 months and LOVE it. I upgraded from a Specialized Secteur so it has been a very nice transisition. Love the Campy components and the weight difference of it compared to my old bike.
Please excuse the low picture quality



Loving the Parlee posted a few ^^^!!!
