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

nah, red looks cool. Friend of mine has this bike, but black tape, a little monochromatic, this is cool.

The primary bike is nice. Should go with a different color bar tape next time though. Black/Blue/Grey would finish it off quite nicely.
You're riding on Vittoria's too? I put those decals on my fork

Winter/trainer bike work in progress. Seatpost and saddle from my MTB while I decide whether to go setback or not (I have a Thomson Masterpiece post and carbon Fizik Aliante waiting to go on).

Tyre and front end colour look, erm, interesting...

When I get the position dialled in the steerer will be cut then.

Wheels are Powertap/DTSwiss on Open Pro, group is Ultegra/DA mix. Raceblades will be used in bad weather.
Proper pic to be taken when all is sorted.

That's why I'm going to put up with that colour clash! Love them.

Thx.

Some black/blue/grey tape would look real nice but after trying many different things I decided my favorite type of bar tape is old old school adhesive backed cotton tape .
I wear gloves and have small hands so I like my handlebars to feel really thin as opposed to fat. I like to feel like I can to squeeze it hard and rip it off when the goin get's tough.

Tires are Vittoria Rubino Pros for training. Not quite as bulletproof as an armadillo or gatorskin, but has a much smoother ride and gets very high mileage ime.

Use open corsa's for races unless im lazy like today ill just leave the rubinos on there.

nice Colnago

after pages and pages of carbon, sloping/compact frames, super clean bikes with matching tire/bar tape/saddle colors, etc. - it's refreshing to see a classic steel road bike

especially one that looks like it gets ridden more often than it does get photographed

You realize that everyone here is just cleaning up their bikes to take the pictures, right? I'm sure most of the bikes in this thread aren't spotless 99% of the time. I know mine aren't.

Since the Litespeed has been built, it hasn't been ridden too much. When I go for rides with my wife I take it out, other than that it hangs in the closet. It's between the, not as fast as my ti bike, but way too nice to leave locked up somewhere bike. I'm considering getting rid of it for a beater that I could leave outside a store or bar in San Francisco, and not worry about.
