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 double checked it, no shipping to the US. It was $870 with shipping and I paid $1000 near new. They are selling F5s cheap. Felt F5 Road Bike - 2014 | Merlin Cycles

Shuffling some bikes around this weekend and purchased a Foundry Thresher. LBS selling them for an even $1000.00. Wanted something with disk brakes I could ride on gravel as well as save some miles on my Tarmac. Short ride Monday was great but more miles will tell the tale. The do NOT have a lot of front tire clearance and the chain stays kick out pretty good (had to move cleats in for clearance) but the handling and responsiveness is impressive.

Underwent a couple preseason changes.

Refit my position a bit, change of saddle, switched to a Q-Ring, and picked a new set of training wheels and race wheels (best part was the wheels were all free and brand new!)

My first good road bike, 17lb litespeed titanium with shimano components wheels aero easton, ( also TT cervelo p3) last year litespeed full carbon aero Cr1. I replaced 95% of my component to Token very lite weight shaved off 2lbs now 15lbs but alway wanted full carbon. I found a look 586 2bls frame fork seat post.
Had fun for two month fantastic bike very fast up the hills and scary fast down the hills.
I sold the bike to my friend. I don't regret buying the Cr1 bigger crank box solid bike up hill i gained 2kmh faster up hill you do not lose any energy 15.5 lbs I also sold my TT bike (16lbs with Token components).
The Cr1 is like a p2 cervelo. I recommend to all bikies that are in the process of buying a new bike look for the big crank box my frame is 4bls (that includes fork and seat post). bigger crank box you will not regret.

Yes i love riding it and though its my first road bike, I can tell the difference to my previous fitness bike. This is more comfortable after 30 miles

If you google search some images, it seems the 1999 model most closely matches when you compare the font used for the "FORCE" decal on top tube.

Here is a website with specs on that model, but it doesn't say they made it in red. But going back 15 years isn't always reliable on bikepedia:

It's just flat out a great riding bike. I have one of there tandems and was really impressed how it handled. So I figured out I couldn't go wrong with a Co-mo single. I'm extremely happy with the bike and if all goes well it should be that last road bike I'll ever own.

My road bike is a 1985 Nishiki Team Issue (Tange Prestige cro-mo), which I've built up with a combo of Dura-Ace 7400 and 7800 components, a blue Brooks Swallow, and newer Nitto stem and handlebar, and Shimano RS61 wheels. I afixed a custom coyote paw headbadge (the original was missing when I bought it), so I like to call her "Coyote Blue."

In 2010 I purchased my first road bike, a 2009 Felt F95 Team edition.


I was burning some time on a snowy day last week with no intention of making any big purchases. One local bike shop here got some 2013 Specialized Tarmacs in and were about half price. Needless to say, I upgraded...


Can't wait for the snow to go away!

I have a Haro CR10... and love it!

I bought it back in 2009, with a very limited budget, and I wasn't wild on the yellow frame, but after 7 races and exceeding may expectations (including my own ) on it I've grown to love my "yellow peril"

I've got £300 decathlon bike (link below). First road bike. I cycle to keep fitness for running, especially when I'm too injured to run. Aiming for sub 3 marathon. Should I invest more in a better bike? No plans for cycling races. Thanks for any reply.
