I'm peddling a 2005 frame Rocky Mountain ETSX 50. It's full suspension and has all upgraded Shimano XT parts. I rock Larsen TT 230c tires and have a Serfas Terrazo seat to ease the pain of rolling down a mountain side.
All girdled and saddled, waiting for me!
Fingering my girl.
My road bike is a 2005 frame Cannondale R900. It's standard Shimano components. I traded in my red frame, and now have a blue one.

Nope, the day after I learned how to ride one, I was out for a ride in my neighborhood, took a sharp turn a little too fast, fell off, broke my wrist, and have pretty much stayed away from bikes ever since...

That is a major bummer.
I remember the day I got the training wheels off my Huffy (I was six years old, don't laugh ), I rolled outta the driveway into the street and almost said hello to the front end of a Suburban rolling down my street.
Do you drive a Hummer for the military? I want to fly a Warthog for the Air Force!
Since Luxembourg is very hilly and always has crappy wet weather, I did not bring my bike with me. I use my car around this side of the continent. Not to mention Luxembourg isn't exactly the most bicycle friendly nation.
At home though, I have a mountainbike which I use to get around everywhere. I love using the bike to get around; it's good for the environment, and at least I get some excercise

Cyclists are a menace to the roads! They contribute nothing towords the upkeep of the roads like motorists. They jump red lights, often drive on the pavements and don't use lights at night. And what's all this fascination with Lycra?? Nowadays they ride all over the place in tight lycra suits? Is that a sexual thing??? In my day all we had were bicycle clips!

Quoting Greasespot (Reply 3): I ride a Colnago C40. Cmpy record parts and rolf carbon wheels....
Nice ride...I have a 1980 Guerciotti that looks like hell, but is still tight as ever. It has mostly Campy Record, although the Suntour Superbe Pro derailleur that I ripped off in my second wreck got replaced by another identical to it. Now that I live in the city, I don't ride nearly as much as I did when I lived in Connecticut or more suburban Massachusetts.

Quoting Alcregular (Reply 19): Cyclists don't even pay road tax, so they shouldn't use roads (I know I'll get flamed for that)
I own a car that i pay ins and registration on year round....Yet I chose not to drive in the summer....So yeah I do pay taxes and I to pay for the upkeep of the road that i use for 6 mos of the year....So I pay more than you and put less wear on the roads....So I will ride on the roads and I will take up a full lane if i so chose to..
Sometimes all you can do is look them in the eye and ask " how much did your mom drink when she was pregnant with you?"

I'll make a pic later but yes, I drive mine a lot when its above 20-25 degree celcius. I usually do about 1000-1300KM a year. My current bike I bought in 2001 has around 4500KM on the computer odometer (a must have!)
