    This would legitimately be considered 'fresh' here in Pittsburgh

  • XL-ChocIce - 17 points - 1 month ago

    Same with a sister and for Christmas, ended up with he excellent Soreen one

    Your fellow riders will consider themselves fairly warned, and will let you bring up the rear in the paceline.

  • mania4conquest - 26 points - 1 month ago

    Now roll that beautiful bean footage.

    My wife would not appreciate my girlfriend buying me a jersey... Sweet jersey though!

    I received the ire of the Strava community one time by forgetting to turn it off after putting my bike on my car's bike rack. I felt like the whore of Babylon!

  • thefranster - 21 points - 1 month ago

    Strava has been wildly inaccurate for me as of late.

  • wolfet03 - 17 points - 1 month ago

    There is only one explanation

3. Found a burnt out car in an abandoned quarry, made for an awesome photo

    You ... motherfucker. Can't just post a sexy as fuck bike and then not have the model in your flair. Oh, look at me, having b'twin, Giant and Nox Airbase in my flair posting Cannondale bikes. Which is it? :D

    Apart from the obvious enviousness: Damn! Nice bike, nice pic. Rock on :)

4. TIL: They take Treks super seriously at this one shop in Utah

    I liked when the Mr. Pink was actually pink.

  • Sir_not_sir - 16 points - 1 month ago

    Beautiful bike.

  • ShenaniganSkywalker - 5 points - 1 month ago

    They're doing a stock carbon fork on those now?

    Giving up, giving in.

  • Aww_Shucks - 10 points - 1 month ago

    Not my bike, but it'd be nice if it was.

    That camo frame-bag really got me...I spent a few seconds trying to figure out what that tiny black strip hanging off the top-tube was.

  • athrowawaynic - 4 points - 1 month ago

    I like how you raised the property value of that building at least double or triple by parking your bike near it.

  • BarryJT - 2 points - 1 month ago

    I wish they still made the Casseroll.

7. NBD: Pinnacle Arkose 3 2017. For the commute and some light off roading.

    Bike looks great - but am I the only one who can't get over how hideous the 105 hydro brifters are?

  • pomelberry - 6 points - 1 month ago

    Great bike! No gimmicks, just great strength and reliability.

    Also, you might want to flip your saddlebag over so that it fits a little nicer under your saddle. It is designed so that the waterproof and easier to clean half sits over your wheel rather than the softer material.

  • noot_gunray - 1 points - 1 month ago

    That is a sexy bike

  • flibbble - 1 points - 1 month ago

    I have the 2016 Arkose 3, pretty great so far! Swap those tyres though - for Kenda's (my tyre manufacturer of last resort) they're not horrendous, but don't expect traction on wet roads when going around corners.

    If I didn't have a SLX, I would probably buy one of these.

  • deucedempsey - 5 points - 1 month ago

    Anyone know when Canyon will be in the USA?

  • niall584 - 4 points - 1 month ago

    Gorgeous. Im a bianchi man, but I'm thinking the next bike will be a canyon. Enjoy it.

  • BiscuitsReckoned - 5 points - 1 month ago

    Inb4 the "holy shit how tall are you" comments.

    So, how tall are you?

    Sweet looking bike. Love high end alu bikes. How does it ride?

  • thepoka - 3 points - 1 month ago

    My next bike will be an Allez Sprint, they're so damn cool.

  • Can_Cannot - 3 points - 1 month ago

    Looks awesome.

    For whatever reason I just can't get over how tiny those Power saddles look :) Though I've heard they're darn comfy.

  • enricko7 - 2 points - 1 month ago

    How do you like using 1-by for road? Plenty of gear range?

  • Overunderscore - 10 points - 1 month ago

    Nice pedals

  • sneakyserb - 2 points - 1 month ago

    how much u pay ...... looks nice how does this bike compare to the supersix?

  • satanicwaffles - 2 points - 1 month ago

    Maaaaan, it looks like such a nice bike.

    Some time in the near future I want to upgrade and get the disc variant of the CAAD12 and get a GT Grade Carbon to rip around when the CAAD12 won't do.

    With that combo, there pretty much nowhere I couldn't go.

  • ryan924 - 1 points - 1 month ago

    I wonder what those big wheeled things were like to ride? Maybe the Williamsburg crowd will start riding them soon so I can try one out.

  • warsch - 3 points - 1 month ago

    So this bike was initially sold for 400 AUD but was reduced down to 200 AUD (150 USD)

    Alu frame, carbon fork, Claris gears, tektro brakes, noname chainset

    Wheels are terrible but otherwise a nice bike especially considering it's price.

  • Javier20t - 3 points - 1 month ago

    It's got internal cable routing too, that's pretty cool. I've always wanted a bike that had it, but it hasn't happened yet. How's this thing ride? Any noise from the routing?

  • PM_ME_SQUANCH - 2 points - 1 month ago

    At a glance it doesnt look like a 150 dollar bike. Nice steal

  • garvisdol - 1 points - 1 month ago

    That looks like a fantastic buy. Here in the US, Aldi just sells groceries. And some minor non-food items but not bikes.

14. Rule #5 and Rule #9: Check.

  • Quarante_Deux - 5 points - 1 month ago

    For anyone who doesn't know the rules by heart :

    Rule #5 : Harden The Fuck Up

    Rule #9 : If you are out riding in bad weather, it means you are a badass. Period.

    Fair-weather riding is a luxury reserved for Sunday afternoons and wide boulevards. Those who ride in foul weather – be it cold, wet, or inordinately hot – are members of a special club of riders who, on the morning of a big ride, pull back the curtain to check the weather and, upon seeing rain falling from the skies, allow a wry smile to spread across their face. This is a rider who loves the work.

    First ride on studded tires and I'm pleasantly surprised at how grippy they actually are. It was almost like riding in the dry. Nokian/Suomi W106's.

    Rule #5 was invoked because I was really skittish on riding to work on fresh snow with tires that had never seen pavement yet, in the dark, on rural roads with pickup drivers that like to make too-close passes, and was making all sorts of excuses NOT to go.

    I did it anyway. And I'm REALLY glad that I did.

    New to me at least! Bought it used in great shape. First bike for me since I was a teenager so trying to get in shape and better at riding on it. Took it on a quick 3 mile test run today, which was honestly still enough to wind me a bit :( . When riding I felt like the seat was leaned a little to far back... does it look that way to you all?
