Huffy, chopped and lowered. I try to do at least 50 miles of interval training daily. Upgraded campagnola gears and stuff. I'm pretty serious about it.

My wife and I are heading out for a road-ride right now (its 67 and sunny) so I only have time to post a pic of the road bike.

Serotta Fierte carbon/titanium with Ultegra 10 spd and FSA carbon cranks, seatpost and bars. Super comfy!



And my wife just walked by and says "what about my bike?" so here it is:
Trek Madone 5.2 WSD with Ultegra SL 10 spd and Bontrager Race Lite stuff.

Here is my Seven Elium that I had custom built. Some of the components are Campy Record, Bontrager XXX Lite carbon wheels and other little bits and pieces. Thought I would try out my Canon G11 for Christmas. So far so good.

... funny that we all seem to ride Campy equipped bikes, instead of Shimano ....
Is it because we're "gear contrarians", otherwise, we'd be riding Shimano equipped bikes, and Japanese I4s ?

Hey this is like show and tell. No fancy photo op sessions. Circa 1983 Santana tandem, daily driver. I even take it out single when the wife stars making chubby talk and does not want to ride. The Canondale is for the dirt but does not see much use. My parts cost more to replace than hers. Nor does the old Alpinstar but I have street and dirt tires for both just incase.

848Dave - you're road bike is pretty much a cross between my road and mountain bike:
Had to warranty those damn Bontrager wheels huh? ... er, one of them. EDIT: Must be the lighting

Now it has a fox fork, salsa skewers and clamp, Fizik saddle, Easton carbon bars and Race X lite stem.


Oh, and no, I'm not a fan of Campy. Too expensive and niche-y. Oh yeah, and cause my wife's bike shop doesn't stock Campy. They just purchased a chain tool - $65 dealer cost.

Built this up two years ago. My main go-to bike. Just signed up to ride it coast-to-coast this summer (or as much of it as my 57-yo knees permit).

Mark,

Nice looking bike, but maybe put some skinny tires on for a trip that far? At least 10% less effort, no? (Save those knees...)

Yeah, I'll put some 28mm road tires on for the trip. I'm also thinking I need to lower the gearing - it has a compact double with a 34 front/28 rear right now and even without any loads, this is going to be tough on the long passes, at least for me. Unfortunately, I'm running SRAM and my only re-gearing option right now is to buy into their hideously expensive new XX mountain group to get a RD and cluster with a 32 or 36 rear cog. More excuses to buy stuff and spend money.

The wheels are the original, just poor lighting..I need to work on my camera skills. I really like your mountain bike Mr. BumbleBeemer36!

Mark;

What company are you going to use for the C to C trip? I want to do it next year.
I have already signed up for 2 week long trips this year........One in Idaho......the other in Oregon.

Cheers

Roadies buy what the Pro's race and discs present issues that make them ill-suited for road bikes:

1. Weight penalty and, well, folks spend anywhere from $1 to $5 a gram for weight reductions on road bikes.

2. Wheel change compatibility issues. When a pro gets a flat they slap on a replacement wheel that may or may not come from their own team, i.e., Mavic neutral support. It's been hard enough with variations of Shimano, SRAM and Campagnolo 9, 10 and now 11 speed in the peloton, getting a common fit for disc calipers and rotors would be a nightmare.

3. Too much of a good thing. Road bikes already have more than enough brake power on the front wheel and the rear brake is nearly useless for anything other than scrubbing off speed on long descents. So, adding a disc, even with a small rotor, would be overkill.

I raced for 12 years, I know full well why they aren't on road bikes, but i don't necessarily believe that the negligable weight penalty keeps them off. it is easier to slow a spinning wheel at the rim than at the hub, so a rim brake will take less force. The larger diameter road wheels require a stronger spoke pattern when you are stopping the hub rather than the rim, a radialy laced front wheel wont take kindly to aggressive disc stopping. in general, roadies resist change for the most part and only adopt new technology after everybody else has.

I started racing mountain bikes when they were still rigid (late 80's), when rock shox released their fork, the hardcore racers declared the added 1 lb as unacceptable, once Tomac started kicking everybody's ass with a fork on his bike, the adaptation was quick.

lastly, aggressive slowing isn't a benefit to road racing, keeping momentum is, so the ability to stop quicker isn't a value added benefit.

with all that said, dics brakes look cool, and are low maintenance. if i ever build up a new road bike i will disc it.
