    Any Roadies on here? I love Mountain biking it's one of my favorite things to do but I enjoy road biking too. I just bought a leftover '09 Specialized Roubaix Comp to compliment my '09 Stumpy FSR Comp. I traded an '05 S-Works Tarmac against it and I'm very happy. (minty fresh in photo, still has the stickers on it.):eek:

    Let's see 'em......

    Very nice........I don't see many Scott's around here because there isn't a dealer local. The one's I have seen however at races and such are beauties.

    Yea Scott makes a good bike for the price. When I was shopping for my race bike I must have ridden 10 bikes or so, but the Scott was one of the best I rode. The frame is very stiff and makes climbing and sprinting easy. I've thrown the bike in to corners at high speeds and had no signs of the rear wanting to wash out.

    Here's my Cannondale SuperSix. It's built up with Sram Red group, Zipp SS bars, KEO pedals, and custom wheels by Troy at Ligero (Reynolds MVc 32 rims laced to Tune hubs and running them tubeless). Weight it right at 14lbs with pedals and cages and man this thing is fast. I use it to train on to make me faster on the mountain bike for race season.

    Just got into cycling about a year ago and I've got a Giant OCR3 that I've put a little over 1,600 miles on. My dad and I try to go riding at least every Saturday and I ride at least 2 other days during the week. I'll post a picture later. I've also got a Giant solid tail mountain bike as well, I like that one for trail riding. That's a real nice Cannondale you've got there. My first bike was an old Cannondale with the shifters on the down tube. I would cruise that bike at 18-20mph no problems. It was a blast.

    I'm looking forward to my next bike being either a Giant TCR 1 Advanced or a Cannondale, but I haven't looked too closely at the Cannondales. The dealer we have here locally is kind of a douche and jacks the prices of everything through the roof. The Giant deal though...what a sweet shop and easy guy to talk to. Hence why I have 2 Giants.

    I my current bike is a '10 Specialized Stumpjumper Comp HT and love it. I have been getting an itch to buy a road bike, but havent had the time to do some research on own for a newbie. I will most likely stick with Specialized though.
