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

Not stock sir, and those are trainers. He has a set of Boyd's. I'll get him to post a pic with the wheels.

I already acknowledged my error. Why post a pic of a bike with trainer wheels on a thread like this? Doesn't make sense.

I wanted a bike that would accuse all the carbon bikes of doping while its admirers talked about how fast it used to be. FWIW, this is also a CL rescue.

Anyone can join this site. A lot of people are members here who don't have bikes or are not cyclists. Perhaps because of this place and how nice people treat each other, JSS will soon become one!

Hey I'm not saying he can't be here. I have no power or authority in this manner whatsoever.

It's just that it's called "bikeforums", not "come mock everyone who spends less on their bikes than you". Even on a thread like this, we can be critical without being insulting.

Brings back memories, my first road bike was a Nevada City. I hope you enjoy yours more than I did.
