- Show me your road bikes! done before but i'm sure there must be some new ones!!
My 2 current road bikes of choice. You wanted unusual. Don’t see many of either around.
First up my Pegoretti Responsorium. Columbus XCR stainless steel from the master of steel. No photo can do the paintjob justice. Super Record and Lightweights.
Second up my Seven Diamas. Carbon fibre well done by the titanium experts. Record and Hyperons.

Not gonna post a pic because it’s a bog standard Carrera, loving it though!
Had it a few weeks now and one thing bothering me is I can’t just cruise on it, just doesn’t feel ‘comfortable’ (for want of a better word) so I’m always hammering it, is there a way I can trick myself into bimbling? Get into work horribly sweaty (no showers) and knackered so not ideal!Posted 6 years agochris36860Member
Anybody fancy a Full Carbon Argon 18 Krypton?? She’s fitted with full Veloce and is in immaculate condition. Size large. I brought it to do the London to Paris charity ride on and now have no use for it. High spec. Just had service.
Email in profile if interested.

Lifer – Try to concentrate on spinning smooth and complete circles with the pedals, initially in a slightly bigger gear than you would normally ride. If you stop pumping the pedals and get in a zen-like state of spinning throughout the revolution, you will feel more relaxed on the bike.
Also, try relaxing your entire body starting from your fingers and working up your arms, through your shoulders and to your torso. Doing this at the same time as spinning should help you to cruise.
Sounds a bit hippy, but it is partly how the pros manage great distances by riding smooth.Posted 6 years ago
