- Show us your road bikes….

No offence to sunchaser but I do fail to see where this thread went overly downhill from there… I can understand if someone opened with a tour standard piece of exotica and then we all posted our normal-to-quite-nice standard of bikes.
No offence taken, even if I'm not sure what you mean 😆Posted 8 years ago
Its gotta be the Pegoretti and the Cinelli for me. Its always the slightly different ones that stand out. I think you become desensitized to all of those £4K CF uber rigs once you've been on a few organised cycling holidays. Having said that, a De Rosa Idol would still do it for me.
Here's my trusty old steed…its had a varied life, from hopping potholes in south london to sampling the rarified air of the Alpes and Sierra Nevada. Wouldn't be suprised if I'm still riding this ol' bag of metal tubes in ten years time.

It does look like I'm all over it in that pic but I just passed the 2,500 commuting miles mark on it this week having started in March and no complaints.
That's fine, if you feel right on it. It does like a bit small for you in that picture mind.

That was the Col Du Galibier, you'll get to know that one pretty well if you ride La Marmotte! Its one of the most memorable climbs that I've ever done, though there are some equally stunning climbs in southern spain.

rowemasters, you won't be disappointed with the ksyriums. I've always gone for a good set of handbuilts as you can get a strong, light and easy to maintain wheel for reasonable money. But having been given those on permanent loan from my brother in law, I'd have to admit that I'm very impressed. They're noticably stiffer than my previous hoops, a big confidence booster when descending on the big mountains!Posted 8 years ago
