Allez Sprint Track. I really like the way the rainbow paint job looks and pictures do not do it justice. It's not a fast track bike but it sure is a good looking one.
Ficus Izalco Max 2019 not seeing much talk about this bike so I guess it will be underrated again. One of the nicest looking bikes imo, if it is as aero as it is claimed to be I'll get one once I get my cat 2 upgrade at the end of this seasonImageImage

-Scott Addict, Willier Cento10, and Cervelo r5. Black and understated.
Where do you get 'black and understated' for the Wilier?

Off the peg you've got the copper and chrome Ramato or metallic blue Chromovelato colour schemes (among others) and then you've got the Infinitamente custom option as well. They are bright.

I have many. Oltre XR4, Madone SLR, Time Alpe D' Huez, Pinarello F10, Tarmac S-Works, De Rosa Protos, and Colnago C64.
Super nice collection! Can you rate them in some fashion on your likes and dislikes. Curious where your Giant TCR falls against the rest for comfort on longer rides, handling, climbing, power through the pedals, etc. as I just recently purchased a 2019 SL 0 SRAM Red etap rim version.
Thanks!

the cento 10 isn't really a new model, the old one is dimensionally the same, just a slightly different layup. it is a beautiful bike, not just for riding, but to look at. :D

Go to a bike shop, have them size you up for a bike, and then check craigslist.
Some love steel steel is real some dont care - like me. I ride an alumnium with carbon seatstay, and carbon fork, and love it. Ive owned a all steel road bike and maybe its cause i am a heavier rider, but I never knew a difference.
I guess just look for what your budget will allow you to buy. If you shop around, and watch craigslist, youll find a deal.
Always go for the highest end component you can afford. Ive had road bikes with sora components cause at the time that was what i could afford, I rode the crap out of it for a couple years while doing triathlons with no problems... .

Italian made Colnago C64 for carbon fiber. Moots for Titanium. And way too many really cool and nice riding hand made steel bikes to narrow it down to one.

I'm a Trek guy. I really like the look of the Madone, but I didn't want an aero bike. My choice is the 2019 Emonda SLR (rim brake version), which is what I built. I got to choose the paint color I wanted (P1) and did not have to settle on a bike with 20 different paint colors and badging all over the bike; I don't like a busy paint scheme with too many different colors or a lot of advertising on the bike. I tried to pay Trek not to put Trek on my custom paint, but they wouldn't go for it.

I also like the Canyon, but there were no frames in the US and Canyon would not allow me to change the bars to a proper fitting set for me, so that idea got dropped, but they look good.

The Tarmac look good, too.

I almost got one, but in the UK only Evans sell them and were unable to tell when they would get any in stock.

Evans have just lost the UK import contract for BMC, it's gone to one of the biggest distributors in the country and they are signing up independent dealers as we speak.
