    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

    Thanks. No frame damage at all. Wheels needed to be trued, and a little road rash on the shifters. Saddle, hoods, bars, and rear derailleur were replaced.

    Cables way too long. Too much blue. Bar tape, cables, and sidewalls are just too much. Bike is simply too large to look ok. Sometimes this happens with my shoes. The sample shoe looks awesome, then take out my size and they look like skis... This is kinda what this bike looks like. It's so big the wheels look like 650's...

    I've heard and read great and wonderful things about this bike. And it does look sweet. But it's white. I want to like it, I really do. And I DO like it. But it doesn't qualify as "HOT" to me, sorry.

    Nice setup and photo, though, I'll give you that.

    My Ardennes are "wide" at 23mm. Guess I'm cool already! But sorry to disappoint you, I was just pressing some veloplugs into a set of Reynolds Attacks haha
