Ramen For The Rest Of My Life

My first nice bike. Couldn't afford her but C & V temptation got the best of me. She is super clean and rides beautifully.

Bought from a nice cyclist who took pity on my "noobness" and threw in a pair of cycling shoes when I asked " huh?, where are the pedals?".



As a side note, the cycling community seems much more tolerant of those who are still learning than a lot of other communities.

Nice! You won't regret buying a nice bike. There's nothing better than a great ride on a nice steel steed.

Cheers,
Karl

More pics, and from the drive side. Re: Ramen, Throw in an egg or two and some frozen vegetables and it's almost like a meal. Pinarello! Looks sweet. Good for you!
