A 'Black Hawk down' commemorative maybe? Or something whipped up by the fellows on the A-team? Or would it be some super advanced black bicycle using 'Alien' technology. Have to be something beyond CF as the blood from those Alien things would burn right through that.

Yes, it's a good hill climb and decent from either Tantalus Drive or Round Top Drive. Yes, and Aloooooha!

No Cervelo here. Juts an "ordinary" '89 Bianchi Brava. (I've been told this is an '87.) Sugino compact double. Vx derailleurs. Mavic 501 hubs, MA40 rims, 32 spokes, 700cx25mm Gatorskins. Tektro brakes which require almost no effort. 24lbs. It is, ah..., quick.

JMC, haven't gotten it put together yet (long story). Just finished internal Di2 wiring today. I'll report when it's finally road worthy and when I can ride it ... 6 weeks at least (another long story).

This is my atta boy for dropping 18 pounds, my cholesterol from 211 down to 175, my triglycerides from 97 down to 65, and as an added bonus, the ability to stop taking lysinopril for my blood pressure.
