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

my three bikes (N+1 formula still in effect)

As part of my new member introduction I thought I'd share pics from the stable.

My oldest one is not pictured - it's a 1997 Klein Attitude in royal blue. Just as good as the day I got it.

This past Spring I picked up a Cervélo P2 2012 for my first triathlon (Nations Tri in DC this Fall)



and then a couple of months later I got a road bike to complement the TT frame. That one is the pictured Cervélo R3 2012.



It's currently waiting for new shoes - a HED Ardennes SL set with built in Powertap G3 hubs.

Did a little tweaking on one I picked up a short time ago, and just finished a 1995 for a friend.

Is that little speck on the rear spoke a magnet for your garmin? If so, what kind is it? I hate the giant round ones.

Yep. I'd never seen one before, but the LBS pulled one out as I was leaving yesterday and stuck it on. I think it's this one here, but there's no Shimano markings on mine.

If you are looking for a minimalist look, these are pretty cool. I use 'em. They were a little teeny bit tricky to install -I used JB Weld. But they work fine and look great.

2013 Madone 2.3 upgraded with a Bontrager RXL handlebar, Bontrager RXL Aerobars, Ultegra 6800 crankset, Ultegra 6800 chain, Ultegra 6800 pedals, Ultegra 6700 cassette and Bontrager R2 tires. Put 3000 miles this past year and loved every minute and dollar spent.

Ooh, very interesting. I wonder how big of a pain it would be to remove them? i guess if need be, you could always just replace the spoke.

Breezer Venturi-SRAM Force/Red mix, Bontrager Race Lite TLR

It's been a while since I last posted. Got BG fitted and upgraded a few bits.
2012 Breezer Venturi ("D'Fusion" hydroformed steel) frame
2013 SRAM Force crank, RD and shifters
2013 SRAM Red Yaw FD
Bontrager Race Lite TLR wheels and R3 TLR tires, set up tubeless
KMC X10SL gold chain
Yokozuna Reaction cable set

I'm thinking about installing the trick Switch Aero seatpost and a set of clip-on aero bars, as well as possibly upgrading the crank for DA-9000 with Stages power meter arm, but need to save up for it.

Pic:


Please don't mind the ghetto rear wheel in the pic: I shot this with the indoor trainer wheel & tire mounted.

After some issues with a couple of different LBS trying to tune the FD, I decided to just spend a couple of hours myself and learned how to get the Red Yaw FD to work flawlessly on my bike. Shifts with authority now, way better than the Force FD!
