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

My LBS installed them for free, because I had to wait a long time to get the bike. I probably would have bought them anyway.

Those are seriously stylish cages! Beautiful bike too, by the way. the only thing i would have changed is i would have made it Record instead of Dura-Ace.......but thats a personal decision.

Very sexy bike.

Here's a couple pictures.
I do believe that is the first white saddle that I've ever seen.

Nice ride Micah, but there's just something that bugs me about an Italian bike not equipped with Campy.

Well, with some things, I stick to what I know. I've always used Shimano and been happy with it, so that's what I got for this bike. I've never used Campagnolo, but I might try it one day.

Pity. So you've tried Campagnolo before? What was the problem?

Bought this over 3 years ago. Bad timing, though -- before I could even ride it, conditions arose such that I couldn't ride until recently (still haven't ridden it!):


So, now that I can ride again, I have been getting back in shape on this single speed. I wanted to "earn" the right to ride the Cinelli. But, I love SS so much, I'm not sure the Cinelli will ever be getting love!

Looks like centaur or chorus.


It would have carbon levers if it was record right?

It's a mix of record (brakes, rear der, seat post) and chorus. And I'm in love with it... but... dang, do I love riding single speed.

Here is my new (and first) road bike. I found a deal I couldn't refuse. About 30 miles so far. Can't wait to find some hills for her...

Sorry no fancy bottle cages. Yes I am wearing my mountain shoes. And I'm a little nervous about purchasing some biking shorts.... but I gotta do it.

Purty bike! I got mine off with a flathead screwdriver, isn't there like a little groove in the white plastic bolt that you can turn?
