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

'05 Trek 1500. My first "real" bike. Got about a month and a half ago and had less than 600 miles on it. So far I've put just under 500 miles on it and have had no mechanical issues. Couldn't be happier with it.

Thanks. I bought one and have about 200 miles on it. Most comfortable saddle I have ever used.

Rode to Sagamore Hill to sit on TR's porch.

https://www.strava.com/activities/627643101

Learned that the morning after a hard rain, a lot of sand and debris gets washed onto the road from the soft shoulders. Mt. Misery was a mess with lots of sand and dead branches. Sweet Hollow also has plenty of sand and the damp surface and shade made it difficult to see potholes.

Black on Black (Bethpage Black)




This is what Long island is all about


Sagamore Hill before the tourists arrive.





My favorite spot at the Massapequa Preserve


It was clean when i left

It was the only way to get a SLR with Sram Red. Also minimal logos are a major objective. My old Madone was a rolling billboard.

My 2016 Domane 5.2

And judging by many of the pics here, this thread appears to be a "safe space" for us seat baggers.

Trek Emonda ALR 5...

I got my first proper road bike on Tuesday. A Trek Emonda ALR 5. So far I've only done around 50 miles total over 4 days. I was using a cheap Walmart fitness bike before so quite the upgrade. Goal is to do 20 miles a day before work and longer runs on the weekend. I can do around 15 miles in an hour so not too bad.already had SPD Pedals and shoes on the old bike.I 've upgraded the pedals.

Is it the Domane SL6 2017-model?

My Kona Zone 2015 just got stolen last weekend, luckily my insurance covered most of it and since I just joined a club and gearing up to ride more and participate in more (amateur) races in 2017 I took the opportunity to upgrade by pre-ordering the Domane SL 6 2017-model.

REALLY looking forward to getting the bike delivered!

I read every post in this thread before deciding to go with Domane, hope I'm not going to regret it

I doubt you'll regret it, its a great bike. Just make sure an "endurance" bike is what you want.

This Spring I rode a Domane SLR and loved it. But since I have a Emonda SLR I wasn't in the market. What I liked is the more comfortable feel on rough roads. I eventually bought a Cyclocross bike since it was 2 steps away from the Emonda and the Domane was between them in ability to handle rough and less than optimal road conditions.

The Domane is a "safe" choice, I can't see how you will not love it.

Thanks for the reply

I've read a lot of discussions about the difference between race geometry and endurance geometry and concluded that the Domane will fit my purpose just right.

My goal is to get more miles on the road next season and being comfy while doing it is a big plus. I have a long way to go on my physique, technique and experience before a more aggressive geometry will help me reach my goals.

Where I ride, western parts of Norway, it is quite a lot of hills and the roads vary greatly in quality.

Sucks about the theft but yes it is the SL 6. And you won't regret it, it's such a nice ride. Which color did you preorder?

The Pinot red, that's the only available color for pre-order here in Europe/Norway. Which is nice, liked that one the best.

I haven't owned a Trek since like 1994, but I have to wonder, why would anyone actually ADMIT to owning one?

I bought a Trek 2500 c. 1989, it was one of the first carbon fiber road bikes, and replaced it with a similar model a couple of years later before switching to Ti bikes which I rode until about 2005. That old Trek looked like this image I found on Google:

The color really pops in good lighting and settles in more gloomy lighting. I can't wait to see yours when it arrives.
