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?

Haven't posted in forever but I started with a Schwinn Le Tour Super bike from Bikes Direct. I've put a little over 10k miles on it before I sold the bike to a friend a few months ago. I've purchased a 2014 Cannondale Supersix Evo with mostly 105s. Recently bought some upgrades but it will have:

caad spidering sisl2 crankset
6800 ultegra 11-28 cassette/chain/pedals/FD/RD/brake calipers
6800 105 brifters
hed ardenne sl wheelset
3t doric ltd carbon seatpost
fizik antares r1 saddle
fsa compact k wing alu handlebar
stock caad c3 stem

will post a pic when all the upgrades are installed but I am super excited for it! The bike has about 2600 miles on it so far.

My previous ride was a second-hander that was a bit too big for me, just picked up my Ridley Damocles ISP. Now I need to get faster!

Yeah, just another BD bike. But hey, it does everything I need it to, doesn't weigh as much as a small battleship, and it's comfy. Plus, for $400 it was hard to go wrong.



Missing in the pic: Saddlebag, bottles, and new red bartape.

Got this last week. 2011 Tarmac SL2 Comp. It was a rental bike in my LBS's fleet. Probably ridden hard, but well maintained. Fit me like a glove and I got a great deal on it. I sold off my other bikes to fund guitar purchases and really missed riding. Didn't feel like dropping another $2k on a bike, and it's nice to have a bike that has been around the block a few times. Don't feel like I have to baby it, I can just ride. "Needed" new wheels and tires so I picked up some Fulcrum Quattros and Conti GPII's.

S-Works Road shoes. Quite comfy I must say once you dial in your specific tightness on the BOA's. I'm still using the stock Red inserts that come with the shoes since I have a pretty normal arch. I also have a matching Specialized computer on board. :-D

I bought my first road bike this weekend. 2013 Specialized Roubaix Compact. I've been converting more from bike trails to roads so it was time. I really like the acceleration on this bike when you add power.
