Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Is it noticeable you're riding with a SL series fork instead of a S series fork?

No, you can't tell in the ride quality at all, it's just a little weight difference.

Rented a Emonda SL6 while on vacation in Scottsdale. Sorry but I don't have a better picture.



I have to say I was rather disappointment in the Bontrager Paradigm Race saddle when compared to the Paradigm RL on my CX bike and the Paradigm RXXXL on my SLR. It was very soft and was uncomfortable after just 15 miles.

My first road bike: Trek 1.1c with a few upgrades- Lizard Skin bar tape, Nashbar saddle, Speedplay Frog pedals and it now has Continental Gatorskin tires (not pictured). Had it tuned up at the LBS and now it rides almost as good as the Domane.

Making sure it fits before purchasing a new car.

I have my priorities in order.

Same gruppo for me. I opted for the Aeolus 3s, I had the 50mm deep wheels before and they were too much of a cross section for me.

Wasn't it painful deciding on a color, scheme and finish? I had 5 that I absolutely loved. You did great tho. It's gonna be amazing in person. I saw one in the LBS like yours but with a dark blue and a light blue (also matte) and it was quite striking. Yours is gonna be considerably better.. Wish I could see it in real life, Gladius.

Indeed, I made about 20 different paint configurations and screen-shotted them, then spent about a week looking at them Finally reduced it down to about 6 that I liked best, and then ran around the store with paint chips comparing them to different bikes that had the base colors I was looking at. I will be sure to post a photo when it arrives!

I had a really hard time not doing a throwback-scheme to my first bike... the Schwinn Phantom. And, no, that is not me in the picture! But how cool would this have been!?!?

Interesting how the Dnister looks in different lights with the matte finish.
