First Road Bike- Fort RO SLC

Postby PiersHS » Fri Jan 11, 2013 16:12 pm

58cm Fort, carbon rear triangle.

Columbus TUSK superlight forks
Shimano Tiagra rear and front mech
Sora shifters (looking to upgrade ASAP!)
RPM chainset (so heavy it could sink a container ship, needs to be upgraded)
Spesh stem
3T Ergobars and Fizik bar tape
No brand carbon seat post
Fizik Arione Saddle
Shimano Ultegra Peddles
Shimano Ultegrea brakes

Wheels- Alexrims DA22 (Just bought a set of Campy Khasmins to replace them)
Tyres- Front is Bontrager RX2, Rear is a Vittoria Corsa Open Evo CX

Not light at a hefty 11kg (good for hill training though), mainly due to the wheels, but on a slow upgrade process. Am a student so can't really afford a top end bike- getting very jealous seeing all your nice carbon ones though!

Don't worry about your bike for now, I started off cycling as a student with a Dawes Response nearly 20yrs ago and I was happy just being out. Keep your head in the books too and hopefully you'll have all the carbon bits you want one day.

Yeah I'm loving it, really nice :). A carbon bike would be way more than I need- this isn't exactly the thing slowing me down! Even enjoying getting out recently in the freezing weather which must say alot about the bike!

The good thing is when you turn up at a race and beat a whole stack of people on a ally bike with sora, and they are on carbon bikes with electronic gears! (happened at my first IM70.3 in august :) )
