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

Different saddles for different asses

I think he needs it for his glutes to sit on after a massive sprint effort.

Surprisingly he was easy on me when I was a noob.
I was always in awe whenever he posted his bikes.
Honestly he had the right to be him, 1 look @ his stable, & you know he knows bikes.

His bike is better than any of mine/all mine combined.

Just some crap photos for now...want to change some things around before I take real photos. For right now, I've added dura ace pedals, arundel mandible cages, and an arundel dual saddle bag. This weekend I'm hoping I can at least slam my stem and cut the steerer tube.

Not sure what to do about the handlebars but I'm not a fan of these. Thinking I should get another 3t ergonova ltd to match my fuji.

Pay no mind to the disaster of a garage.

Yeah, I currently have a 450g, 210g, 120g and a 1000g pond. Thats a 75g tank I made into a sump originally for the 450g but it was too tall and the stand was too short so it was a bugger to clean.

I tend to have the problem where I spend way too much money on hobbies. Here's an old photo of my 450g, lots of changes since then.
