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

My new bike

Here's another roadie to make the jump from a beginner bike to a race bike. After riding my $900 alu bike for two years i've decided to treat myself. Its noticebaly stiffer but rides smooth as well. the front end feels planted, no matter how aggressive you turn. Have a look.

I was looking at the Tarmac Comp Compact for some time. I really like the ride and the feel of it. You will like it. Great looking bike.
