    Sick Spec'd!
    I'm about due for a roadie upgrade, my TCR is a miserable ride. Worst buzz ever, carpal tunnel syndrome garunteed.
    Probably trail bike upgrade will take priority however.

    What's the story on the '10 Tour?

    Thanks man! It's a great bike. I went to France for the 10 Tour just to go see it and ride some of the stages. The roads are amazing there!

    I previously rode a 1989 Cannondale ST600. The Gary Fisher weighs 10 pounds less! It makes it a lot easier going up hills!

    I ride a DBR that my uncle gave me after a guy who works for him rode cross-country on it. Nice bike, I try to ride as often as possible but there aren't too many good roads around me. Pic somewhat related. [​IMG]

    1st road ride of the season yesterday. Did 24 miles in 1:15 which is about 19mph (iirc) and was very pleased with considering the amount of wind I fought and being a solo effort.

    I had thought about it, but I just can't see how it would help me that much. I'm actually content with the 105 componentry, but I figured I would step up with my next bike because I want to start racing. But, on another note, they don't have any of the CAAD 10 bikes in my size left in stock, so I had to go another route. It worked out though, because with a little convincing I was able to talk my fiancee' into letting me get this...

    This is the bike I REALLY wanted :D

    My first true road bike. Frameset is only original part, I had to respec the rest. Bike weighed 21.5 new and 17 after I was done & I only did what was reasonably priced with significant weight loss over original spec for an aluminum frame bike. It's hardly the lightest or highest tech or priciest but for a jump in point it turned out OK for me. Only thing different in the pic would be that it now has egg beater pedals. Yes, mt bike clip-ins but oh well...........probably going back with black hoods. This is "red stripe"

    20 yr old fat tire touring bike...........This one never really got a name, guess it could go by "old bike"

    Overall, 5 pavement oriented bikes & 8 dirt oriented

    VVVVVVVVVVVV paddle, pedal....it's all good :D

    IIRC, USE-1 carbon aero.......very light, especially compared to the carbon wrapped one that came on the road bike. I actually swapped it from the clown bike to the road bike and put the wrapped one on the clown bike, which also has lime green oury's and a lime green kmc chain now.

    Very nice looking ride. Dig on the color scheme how it goes with the sram red stuff.



    On a seperate but kinda relevant note...I need to post up some pics of my Electra Jeremy that has Nexus 7spd internal gear coaster brake hub, Nexus front generator hub with 3 watt light, sealed crank bearings, etc.........It is a "road" bike but is more like cruising a recliner down the street, lol.
