Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

There is only one and it is a Eddy Merckx Ti EX

By the way, all those shiny bikes sure look like they're never ridden. At least MINE has some nice honest road dirt on it.

Awesome, I'll go check it out! Thanks

Jealous? It's called cleaning after each ride. I don't like dirty toys.

I have +3500km on that shiny bike (this year). I just happen to like cleaning and polishing it after each ride, you don't mind do you?

I'm just under 6'5".

The frame is a Habanero Team Issue 64cm. Alpha Q fork. Chris king headset. Ultegra with FCR700 compact crank. Mike Garcia built Niobium 30 wheels. Thomson stem and post. Specialized Avatar saddle. Deda Newtom Shallow drop bars. Salsa Nickless cages.

I have only ridden down the driveway to check the fit, before I glued the insert in the steerer tube. The insert is glued in and I will take it out for a spin tomorrow.

S4tuned, you should use imageshack.us or something similar where you won't exceed a bandwidth limit on your pictures.

I've been inspired by all the lovely titanium to post a pic my own. I think it has an "industrial look" about it. It's a 2000 Habanero road frame, with Velocity Spartacus wheels and 9speed Ultegra. It's fast and comfy. I love it.

As opposed to cheating dirt? Flip your stem

Is that a sloping frame? If so, what is the Virtual Seat tube length?

Judging by the head tube length it looks to be a 52 cm or smaller.
