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

It's a Cervelo with Zipps. I think it goes without saying that you have a very nice bike.

i think your first problem was assuming that this thread is about bikes. it's strictly about photography.

cervelos on zipps don't need to be told they look nice, they already know this.

To each his own I suppose. The matching wheel stickers is a nice touch though. I prefer hidden valve stems and hidden skewers, but that's just me. I think they mess up the cleanliness of the lines.

I feel bad for liking them, but I think those SRAM S80s are freaking hot. They're garish and over the top, but I love them.

Actually now that I think about it, I guess the Nokon cables, KCNC skewers, and Extralite steerer expander plug & top cap could all be considered WW parts too

The extralite expander seems to be the way to go these days- if you don't mind the cost, it works as well as or better than any other plug out there. Not sure if you're using nokons anymore, but I switched over to alligator i-links and then mini i-links for the derailleurs-- better much easier to set up and maintain as they actually link together.

My Pinarello FP3

This isn't the best shot, but I wanted to put a shot of my ride on the site. I've been riding this for about 9-10 months now and I'm getting it tuned in nicely. There are few things as fun as riding fast on a well tuned racing bicycle.

Thanks,

Jerry
