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

I like it, very stiff and responsive. I'm starting on a road bike again after many year of mountain biking. And the saddle position and slope is perfect for me as it is, don't tell me to change it. And I forgot to put it on the big ring for the photo. But at least I have a brick wall .

Love it!!!!!

Like the P1 Domane. The yellow/black contrast looks good. I like the darker shade of yellow. Sometimes yellows good old quick but that shade is easy on the eyes.

Oh, I don't think that I'd posted an updated pic of my humble ride. Since Jamis is underrepresented here...

I have been thinking about a Noah but their sizes are somewhat confusing. 58.5 (ett) for L and 56.5 (ett) for the M. Which size do you ride and can you tell me your measurements.

i am just starting out trying to get serious about biking, so i got fitted and picked up this:



it's a 2012 Specialized Secteur Sport. surprisingly comfortable for a road bike, which is the most important to me because i'm a big guy. looking forward to get more serious this spring/summer/fall.

I apparently am a bit obsessive and enjoy tinkering with bikes almost as much as riding them. So..... here's the stable as it stands at the moment



and my current tinkerings:

First post, new bike

First post on BF here. I had an old, run down road bike for a while and decided it was time for an upgrade. Bought myself a GT series 4 road bike and i absolutely love it. Nothing on some of the bikes in here but i enjoy it.

Nice upgrade! Looks like a quite small frame, what size is that?

Picture breaks all the rules, but what the heck, this isn't Hot or Not. Trek 2.1 Apex on a ride today.

Not ready for the Hot or Not thread yet, but I did make some updates, so thought I'd snap a couple of photos.



Blue handlebars to match the blue stripe on the saddle.


...and I lost my bar end plugs, so I'm currently using wine corks. I kind of dig it.
