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

Are you sponsored by McDonald's?

Get some of those big Ronald McDonald shoes, and the full outfit to ride this. Now THAT ... would be hot. If I saw that in a race it would make my year.

Love the frame. Not loving the colors, though but to each their own...

Here is a great "not"

And yes it is mine but it will get a black treatment when I get back to Phnom Penh, black seat, tape, tires and black toe clips and straps

Modernized (like 10 years ago, anyway) an old ride of mine. Not sold on the bars (26.0 options are limited, but the stem stays), and the fits needing to be dialed in, but am I on the right track?

Took it from tricolor to 7700 with 7800 cranks.

Might appeal to Mondrian lovers, but not me. Ditching the red tires for black, and less clunky-looking rings, would make it middling hot for my taste.

very nice indeed...saddle position and black bartape would make it better...and some shiny non-black spacers if you're not going to slam the stem...
