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

That a semi-crazy person is doing a 660-mile ride on a single speed over the course of a week.

Nice in many ways. But I still haven't wrapped my head around why Spesh made an S-Works aluminum frame.

So @WHOOOSSHHH... could build it. Duh. . Same reason Kevin Costner built a baseball diamond in a corn field.

I get it now. Like...I'd love to have a custom-painted Pegoretti frame, they're quite beautiful...but I'd probably just mount it on the wall and never build it up or ride it...

Very nice, WHOOOSSHHH. That's got some nice colors to it. Still pissed at Specialized, but I'll look past it for that bike.

No, you don't get it. Serious question, is that aluminum or carbon?
