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 love her! The saddle is the Flite Gel Flow that came with her. I originally put my Aliante on her when I first got her and put the Flite on my snow bike. After a couple weeks in the snow, I grew to really like the saddle and today was my first road ride with it. I really like it! Aaaaaand THAT'S why I grabbed some white bartape today.

It's looking good. I have last years ultegra pedals and really like them. Are you planning on upgrading your wheels anytime soon?

Man, I hope you're not racing CAT V. It would be sad to see that go down.

Here is my Raleigh Pro before I hung the Campy SR seat post, derailleurs, new crank set, pedals and brakes on it. I also put some original gum colored Campy brake lever covers on.

I like though it needs a Brooks Pro or something like a Regal (my preference).:-) Those Campy hoods are rather pricey.

Thank you very much. It rides incredible, compared to my Fuji and the Tarmac Pro SL i had it is considerably smoother on the road. It is also more reactive but that could be cause the head tube is 30mm shorter than the other bikes i have ridden. The whole bottom end of the bike is considerably stiffer than my tarmac and the bike just feels more planted through all aspects of riding. It climbs like a goat also, all in all it's the best bike i have owned so far and probably the best i have ridden to date, but this is all subjective to each person.

the size is a 56 and it won't be for a while bro

Sweet, I ride 56/57! I've always liked the look of those BHs. Something very tasteful about their frames. I need another bike like I need a hole in the head. I've got 10, 9 of which I built. Most recently, I built a Velo Vie Vitesse that I am loving. But, 11 is such a nice, symmetrical number! Maybe I need a 12 step program instead of another bike.
