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

True - thanks for the clarification. I was speaking for my current set up. THose 110mm valve tubes are hard to find (at least at my local bike shop).

Im sorry but the pinarello is UGLY, granted it probably cost more than a years rent for me. But man oh man that thing screams an ugly yell. Im sure its fast and comfy but I just cannot get over the horrible aesthetics of everything on it. But hey to the owner... ride the fu(k out of that.

That bridgestone is awesome.

The organic design of the Dogma isn't everyone's cup of tea. The cool thing is it is a polarizing design. Like it or hate it.... and I do ride as much as I can - it doesn't hang on the wall much at all.... :-)

Definitely not cool, but HOT!!! Not a big fan of Canonndale but an all blacked out Caad9 just looks too good. Nicely done.

^^^ Both these bikes belong in the HOT or not thread.

These last few pages are so full of win for all tastes.

Pinarello + Bridgestone + Orbea + Cannondale (the last blacked out one) = WIN

And none of them have a fugly Shimano crankset! I think this streak of beautiful bikes will never repeat

I'd take this over the red monstrosities in a heartbeat. The only thing I'd do on this bike is get rid of the easton decals.
