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 because it's a Trek and not because it's neon green... it's because of the tall HT, tall stack of spacers and the upturned stem which contributes to (possibly) a saddle-to-bar rise instead of a drop.

Well done on the Giant. I don't usually like white bikes, but that contrast is great.

Thats what I have on each of my road bikes, along with the LTD ergonovas...I went cheap(er) on this one - went with the pro all the way around as I wasn't all that concerned with weight. But yes, I was thinking the same thing. Could probably swap it out for future photos, haha.

Hehe, I'm tempted to find an old pair and see what happens. I guess I could wear them while riding the bike and be a super hipster or something. Last summer I fell in love with the Strato of the same design, but my size had sold out by the time I had the money together for the frame. When I saw this come out this year, I knew it was time to build up a nice fixed gear. It'd be a lot cooler if we had a track in Phoenix or somewhere nearby, but I'm sure it'll get enough use as my screw-around/ride-to-breakfast/bar bike. I might try commuting with it on occasion too.

...and came up with Alchemy bikes. Kind of crazy. I still don't know if you were talking to me or just seeing into the future for the next bike that was being posted in the thread.

Correct...many Treks are hot. I always think a NOT vote should be accompanied by a photo of the judges bike...have a feeling the NOT would sting a bit less...
