If you like the bar tape, George gets the credit for suggesting Lizard Skins and doing an exceptional job wrapping the bar.

1984 (?) Fisher Montare

Last week my wife and I rode in Denali Park, taking our old mtn bikes back to Polychrome Pass. A short video is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVet90TA_AI . The bike has BioPace Chain rings that my wife still loves.

I don't make the rules, but if I did your bicycle would count.

^^^ Wow, Dave Stoller must have done well after graduating from IU to have that car as well as his Masi Grand Criterium.

I did not own this Specialized S-Works in January of 2012 when this thread began, and I guess it is more white than red, but it is eye candy IMO:

Nice bike, Jim!

For me, there are some things that are look great in red. Ferraris (heck any sports car for that matter), lipstick, high heels ... anything sexy and fast.

My first decent road bike is fire engine red. I logged a lot of miles on her.

Here she is ... and me riding her on the 2006 Furnace Creek 508. I think I'll take her out for a spin this weekend.

Here's my "Does everything I need it to because it's all I have" bike. It's my old friend, and I love it as much as the day I got it in 1992. (edit: redid image since I was unhappy with autolevel's overcontrasty effect.)

....and if you have a scroll-wheel mouse, right-click the image and then middle click(the wheel) and the image will open in a new tab.

Also, nice ride.

My 1987 Marinoni SLX Sports Tourer. Amazingly fun and satisfying bike to ride in my favorite color, and that full-chrome rear triangle is still in perfect condition after 27 years. (Thank you, previous owners. I'll try to keep it that way.) More details available if you click on the image.
