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

The BMC is major hot! I'd probably go carbon on the cages though.

The Orca is hot too. The color combo says it all...

Yes yes, I know it looks like the saddle is forward but believe me, it's bang in the middle of the clamping zone!

The Prelude was a bit small for me, so I traded it with another BF member and ended up with a 1983 Raleigh Super Course
