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

What road bike do you have?

My recently purchased 2010 Fuji SST 1.0:

Apparently the original fork broke, so they had to replace it with a different one. While the mismatching paint job does bother me, riding it is a dream and I'm enjoying every mile I go on it. Can't really see the fork when I'm riding anyways!

Haha, thanks! It's more or less stock, though with Ultegra components. Can't really complain though, as it's been such a fantastic bike to ride (and I honestly wouldn't know the difference at this point in my road cycling career).

Yeah, that's one thing I noticed as well. My only hope is bike so fast that no innocent bystander can read that!

rad bike! I love this style frame with the integrated seat-post. Reminds me of a slimmer Ridley Noah.

Did they give you a discount?

I'm really anal about my bikes and that would be a no brainer for me: I'm not going to buy it.

Nice bike nonetheless.

I did, and that was the only reason why I purchased it. In the long run, it won't really matter as I probably wouldn't know the difference, and I won't be doing any cat1 races anytime soon either. I do want to eventually get some better wheels for it though.

My Utility Bike. Grab it for any kind of ride, it's game. It's about to get upgraded to the newer 10-sp Ultegra and DA 7900/C24 wheels. It's been a good bike, and deserves a little treat. Not 15 lbs, not 16, not even 17, but at about $1400 with the "new" stuff, I'll take it. The upgrade will drop it back into the mid-upper 17's.



Then again, I do have a 15 lb bike...The pedals, spare tubular, and Garmin push it closer to 16. New Blackburn cages have replaced those you see. 18g cages, not even sure if they'll hold a bottle....
