What road bike do you have?

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

This is my current bike. It is a Cannondale CAAD4 R500. I had the frame and fork sprayed with H series titanium gray Cerakote. The stem, stem spacers, seatpost clamp, and derailleur hanger were sprayed with H series prison pink Cerakote. All done by Tammi's Custom Coating on Cedar Rapids, IA. The wheels were upgraded from old Shimano/Mavic wheels to Rolf Prima Vigors with pink decals and prison pink Cerakote hubs. Groupset is currently being upgraded to R7000 105. Cassette is 12-25 and rings are 53-39. Going to be ordering an 11-30 cassette and 50-34 rings as well for some options. Still waiting on the crankset. Apparently 105 in silver is pretty low on the production schedule priority. Bar tape will be gray with pink bar end caps and black bolts.

Colnago MXL

I just sold my Colnago C50 and CT1, keeping my MXL. I have had it since Ď03 and havenít found a road bike that rides as nice.

If you are talking about the MXL, look closely and you will see it is not a triple. First clue is the short cage plate on the derailleur. Might be good with 25 but likely nothing larger.
From another 'old guy' (73).

Does anybody know if GP5000 TL 28mm would fit a Giant TCR frame? Frame is the 2019 version, not the updated 2021 version.

Should be against the law!

To have a Bianchi color other than Celeste! Or, a black Ferrari!

Only have a couple of rides on it so far, but I like it. Thick and cushioned, with good grip, and of course it looks great!
