    "it's not the bike, its the rider"

    i know this isn't up the usual alley of the C&V crowd, but the bike IS vintage and the riding is amazing.

    an interesting reminder that a sweet bike of the newest technology is nice, but a skilled rider is almost limitless.

    The clip of saronni destroying the field in a massive sprint on his now flexy and obsolete colnago always reminds me that it isn't about the bike.

    Do that with a small puppy in hand, now that'll impress them. It's alway's about the chicks it seems.
