    What cycling pix do you have on your desk top.

    At home, Chavannel in a sprinting pose...At work. Petacchi getting kissed by the podium girls..
    What might raise my ego, someone said to me..Is that you on your desk top?! Me...
    Then they said that looks like you if you were only 25 pounds lighter...Rarely do I get such compliments, I think? But, in looking at Petacchi- I can see some resemblence..
    If only one could live the life of an Italian racing god..Life would not be dull..Not in Italy..
    So , does your desk top bike pic's ever give you a a lift in a dreary work day. Daydreaming I guess.

    I have a naked Lance riding a bike on one computer, and a naked Cipo sporting some running sneakers on another.

    It's a perk-me-up...

    Independent Fabrications road bike in a yellow to orange fade with blue rims. I'm a teacher, so when I do power point all my students see that before the slide show. They think I'm a bit odd, but I WANT that bike.

    A screen saver slide show of about 200 pictures from my solo tour of the eastern third of the Lewis and Clark Trail in 2003. Keeps me motivated to do the other 2/3rds.

    I think he's asking if those legs can fit in regular pants. I think so. Plenty of pants have a relaxed fit with several inches of slack even over my monstrous legs.

    On a more serious side note, holy hell that calf is superbly ridiculous.

    I mean't most people have problems with their waistes fitting in tight jeans..Those kinds of hamstrings/ calves might cause problems in the legs...
    I have thought having cyclists legs is pretty cool...Yet, I don't like body building in excess..Think I like cyclists legs as shown above..
