Isn't that a little uncomfortable? I guess it keeps you clean though :)

Toupe 143 saddle. More comfy than my SMP and Arione...so far.

I picked up my 1st road bike yesterday. I took it on it's 1st 30 miles today.

It's a 2010 Specialized Roubaix Expert.

I added a Sigma Rox 9. Other than that it's stock.

I know you'll all tell me to "dump the tires, wheels, and seat" but I'm happy with them all. I'm coming from a Specialized Sirrus (which I'll be keeping) which was used exclusively for road use.

It sure is a change coming from a hybrid to a road bike. I know the Roubaix is more relaxed than most other road bikes but compared to the Sirrus I fill like I'm laying down flat on my belly. After just 30 miles today my back is tired....I'm sure I'll get used to it after a few hundred miles.

A pair of Vittoria Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge tyres.

Hopefully they will be better than the 'orrible Serfas SECAs on my "modern" road bike.

Oh and a book on a Kiwi/Dutch pro from the 1970s, Tino Tabak.

Same here but the rear wheel. Haven't decided on spokes yet.

The front was on sale at Performance for $100. I think the rear is on sale too, for just a little more. They're really nice wheels, and they're super cheap.

That's a good price. I'm a bit over low-spoke count wheels, broke one on my 16F. Ride over. I've been using my old open pro front, forgot how solid they are.
