    My ride is a Tifosi frame w/ carbon fork, 105 set, Mavic CXP 21's, 3t stem, ITM handlebar, etc, etc.I've only put it together a few weeks ago, my first aluminium, also first pair of ergo shifters.The ride is extra smooth, but can be bettered I think by a set of better tyres.I have a set of Specialized Turbo, 23's.Anyone ridden before on these?Please let me know.

    I ride the same bike as above, 2004 LeMond Tourmalet...61cm, love the bike, i'm not sure why LeMonds get such a bad rap. Comfy bike, rides like a dream!

    Most of the negativity I have heard has come from the "Greg dissed Lance, so he is an a**hole and I will never buy one of his bikes" crowd. I had actually never even seen a LeMond bike before I began shopping for a new roadie. In my (very) humble opinion I couldn't have gotten a better bike for my money ($850.00).

    My real ride is still pending....I've been riding a garage sale Puch, but I've ordered a Leader 735 frame fitted with a Shimano crank, a Cinelli stem , Campagnolo Record calipers, derailleurs, and seat post, and a Cane Creek head set . I'm still trying to round up brake levers/ shifters and a handlebar. I can't wait! This Puch is having the same effect as ankle weights :) .

    New to these forums, but figured this was one topic I could post to without having to sound intelligent.

    Bought my new road bike after mountain biking for about 6 years and finding myself in a country without enough mountain bike trails nearby (Japan).

    Bought a new 2005 Specialized Roubaix in June. Very happy with it. 80 miles down today on this route:

    I got the same bike, but have recently changed out the wheels to Mavic SL2's - the improvement to the ride is quite considerable - the original ALX's used to flex enough to make the back wheel magnet hit the sensor arm when out of the saddle.
