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

Hello cycling karp

Well, it is basically, with the exception of a handful of components, the same model bike Lance used in the mountains in 2001. It was top of the line, then. Slightly less so, now. Still, an absolute dream to ride.

Eagerly awaiting and fearfully dreading my first century this April, I remain

Here is (not a great picture) of my Colnago Sprint

Ultegra/Dura-Ace component mix. I can't seem to keep that white h/bar tape and lever hoods clean!

just a helpful hint on keeping the tape clean: wear latex gloves when you work on the bike, then take them off when you touch the bar tape. and wear bikeing gloves when you ride. I asked the mechanics the same thing when I put my rasta-print tape on my bike.

once you've got the pic online, place the url inside image tags.

Yep, Check under "Attach Files:" when you post, you should be able to browse your comp and attach an image.

Newboy (if you're still around.)

I LOVE my Flo saddle. It's taken me some time to get used to it but now that I've got it "broken" in I'm pretty sure I'm gonna stick with it. I've put about 500 miles on the bike since I put it on (mostly indoors on the eeeevil rollers). My only complaint is that sometimes it's hard to find the "sweet spot" on the saddle. If you don't sit just right it kinda pinches.

If you're still interested in picking one up email me and I've give you the owners email address. He may be able to work some kind of deal for you.

I'll have to post a pic of my bike with the new saddle someday. Just not today.

Can't wait to get back out on the streets and ride in all that sand and salt!

Yo Tthaze

Still here man, been checking every day for the lowdown on the answer to my prayers (is it that good)?
Yea send me the guys e mail address and I will drop him a line.
Know what you mean about getting back out there, I have no indoor cycling facility so I am often out in the cold and wet on a dog of a bike, can't wait for the summer, had more than my fair share of colds this winter aswell, so come on the Sun (it's snowing here as I type).
I bought a new bike last year and have only managed to do 80 miles on it, I have posted before, but will do again so you can check it.
Aegis victory (full carbon frame) (Built in Maine USA)
Shimano Dura ace triple
Ksyrium wheels
Selle italia seat (so far).

Not best of pics, doesn't realy do it justice

YAY!!! What a great state! Of course I may be just a tad bit biased! Those who are from "away" refer to us as "Mainiacs". I'll fire off that email address to you as soon as I get back from where it is I'm going...

ps. Sweet bike!
