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

Hot.

Interesting "differential" braking setup.

The 595 is generally hot. Too bad the geometry doesn't work for me.

ha, good eye! I only got the Brakes the day of a local race, and didn't want to put a new brake with unfamiliar modulation and power just before the race, so I left the Sram Red that I was plenty used to. It has since been replaced to match!

It's also the too bad the Look didn't jive well with you, as it is quite a fantastic frame!

Sure thing! This is what it looks like now, after having done a TT earlier today, er, um...yesterday actually.

You and UMD might be scouted by GQ or Maxim soon along with your Uncle PCAD!
Sorry I wasn't paying much attention to this thread but I thought I heard my ears burning. What's this about GQ or Maxim?

That bike may have been hot in 1991, but it aint any more, sorry dude

EDIT: With a rack and sans tri bars, that may well be a cool commuter!

How about mine?

^^^ Didn't realize Univega was still around. Looks hot though. My first bike (training wheels) was a Univega. Brings back memories.
