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 way you have it looks like a recipe for a sleepy third leg.. and puts weight on your hands / wrists as you need to resist sliding forward.

Hot bikes look the way they do for a reason.

I live in your area...what Spec. dealer did you use to get it?

I know a couple of local people who went to Endeavor Performance in Nashville to get their bike fitted to them after they popped for an expensive race bike. http://www.endeavorperformance.com/i...icycle-fitting

I think that bike you have is nice enough to make the trip. My bet is that you will walk out of there very satisfied.

Because some bikes can pull it off while others can't. Especially with wheels like Reynolds, or Easton high profile, they have a lot of logos. Sometimes even 4 logos on one side of the wheel and makes the bike look very loud and cluttered.

I guess if it says Campagnolo, it's automatically cool and good looking.

I'm going to gear up in murray. I've had experience with bike surgeon near stl. If i was to travel, I'd go back to them. The guy at gear up is really good too. He fit my saddle for me when i bought it for my old bike. I just haven't had time to go yet, I work in sales and it's the end of the month. If I can hit my goal tomorrow, I'll probably use my day off wednesday to go.

The Colnago is hot, but those wheels are almost too deep for a normal road bike.

Hottest - so hot that I think that the Hot or Not rules need not apply. Not forgetting the trees for the forest all that.
Please tell us more about this Pegoretti.

So, titanium and Campy - what is there not to like about this bike? The frame and steering tube is a bit unusual with such height extension and a small frame in addition to so may spaces. I wonder if this is just too small a frame or the rider and we are looking at compromises?
