Here is my poor college student road bike / tri-bike:

Generic 7005 aluminum frame with a carbon fork, combination of Sora and Tiagra components, and a Forte aero bar. The frame is one size too big so the seat / handlebar ratio is not the best for me (as I said, money is tight and I got a great deal on this bike so I didn't mind it being a touch too big). I might flip the stem and see how that feels but so far it has been working OK. But the bike is also my daily commuter so flipping the stem might make it uncomfortable for everyday riding as this riding position works pretty well for dodging Atlanta traffic.

Soon as grad school is over, I hope to build or purchase a bike with a properly-sized frame for me
