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?

2011 Litespeed Xicon. Campy Athena. That Deda stem is now a Thompson, to match the bars and seatpost.

My first good road bike 6 years ago. I ride it every day : )

Yeah, I know babies triple. We've been over a few mountain passes is my excuse.

Hey Guys. Newbie from the Netherlands (Amsterdam) on the forum here. Bought a Felt F5 2013 full carbon bike. Its a UHC performance carbon frame, carbon fork and it comes with a carbon seat post and compact (alu butted) handlebars. Got it for 1200 euro's at wiggle online (i'm sorry LBS but this good of a deal was too tempting. Original price 1900-2000euros). I think its a bargain for this quality frame. The cable routing is external, and the wheels are outdated but I don't care for now. Wheels will be upgraded in the end anyway and I dont mind mechanical shifting for as long as I have this bike. Its all black. Full Shimano 105 group with FSA gossamer BB30 (compact double). My scale said 7,85 KG for the 54cm frame. The only thing I changed were the tires. I switched the allround vittoria's for a pair of specialized Turbo Pro's. No complaints yet. A lot of weight reduction can be gained with new wheels. The mavic CXP22 are not the lightest. But perfect for this autumn and winter because they can take a beating. Can probably save more than 800 grams on the wheels without spending a fortune. But won't be buying new wheels till spring. All said and done it is a very classy ride, stiff but lively, comfortable and due to the aggressive geometry and the stiffness of the frame I feel that very little power is lost to flex etc when i throw down the power. I want to compliment Felt with their achievement to build a fast bike that ticks all the boxes for this price. It's an allround performer and I feel really confident on the bike in all riding conditions. Handling is great, prologo nago evo saddle is perfect for me, and the compact handlebars from Felt feel real good to me. Im comfortable at hoods, the drops and no complaints about the 105 shifter levers either. After removing all the ugly yellow warning stickers the only thing left to do is remove the plastic spoke protection behind the cassette (just put the high limit so it doesn't go over the biggest cog, right?), save some extra grams and this understated performer will look the part too. Amazing value for money. The F5 comes highly recommended. If you're thinking about buying a new bike, maybe going carbon and you can get your hands on a 2013 model from Felt you won't be disappointed. The Z5 is also a really impressive bike and the geometry is a bit more forgiving on the Z models. Be quick as all the shops want the 2013 models gone sooner than later. This is the moment to buy cheap. Really happy with my purchase. As a chef who works in the kitchen all day it is a really good feeling to go out on a day off, get some sunlight, meet nice people and work on my fitness. People noticed that since I'm riding a lot I am more relaxed and I noticed that I can handle the really hectic moments during a busy shift a bit better than before. I'm glad that I chose this sport. Within 20 minutes you can be at a beautiful place you've never been before and if it wasnt for the bike you'll probably never see it. Bottom line. For me cycling is more than having the slickest bike and the best gear (although I think my bike is pretty slick ). It is also the feeling of freedom. The feeling to go wherever you want to go, and pushing yourself to, and beyond your limits. And the feeling that I get when I'm in the zone - kicking the strong headwinds ass- is something else .

I'm gonna ride till I can't ride no more.


Cheers from the bicycle capital of the world. Pedal on. Willem
Had a felt F5 2013 and that bike was a rocket! super duper comfortable and climbed with ease. Too bad it started flexing and making a weird noise after 2 road races

It's an old bike but rebuilt with a new groupset, so I figured I'd post it.

2013 Wilier Gran Turismo (originally with a mix of FSA and 10-speed Ultegra) now with SRAM Force 22 and Reynolds 46 wheels.

^^^ Nice lookin' bike. I don't typically like deep wheels with smaller-diameter frame tubing, but this works and looks very well thought-out as a whole.

Thanks
I've had the frame since last year and been buying parts as the cash came in.

She will ride mostly on Hope hubs and Mavic Open Pro rims and the Zipps for dress-up days

My Neilpryde Bura SL. Frameset is a warranty replacement of the original Bura SL. NP really, really know how to take care of their customers. I actually like this frame's blue accents better than the original. Picture sucks, but I built it back up quickly so I could get to riding it.

While I'm posting my bike, I figured I'd post this as well- this will be my daughter's first road bike, a diamonback podium 24. I'm in the process of making some modifications: Swapped their 90mm stem for a kalloy uno 60mm, changing their seatpost for a control tech and switching out the saddle for a much narrower one.

Um, I was gonna apologize for the horrendous image quality but, this is beyond that point now.. You can see the basic shape of it I hope. Anyway, it's a black Trek Zektor Zero with blue detailing, it did come with straight handlebars at first, but as I began to cycle more I realized speed was what I had been missing all these years, to I went to reasonable lengths to turn it into a road bike. I obviously switched out the bars for the drop variety, along with brake levers and a bar end shifter (yes one, I have only 8 gears..). The tires are 25mm, so it's kind of like a roadbike after all, with a classic geometry. Might take some better photos later, once again I apologize.

Late to the party I suppose, but I bought this '14 Novara a few weeks ago at the REI member's "garage sale," retails at $1099 (apparently the previous owner brought it back after riding it once and not liking it, looked brand new) got it for $330. I wasn't planning on buying a bike that day even though I wanted to get into cycling, but it was my size, and at that price, couldn't pass it up. Total noob in this sport but it seemed decently equipped for the price. The seat was the first thing I upgraded . New pedals are in the mail. What do y'all think, good place for a beginner to start?
