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

Hmm, I might have to look into some new bars. I love the shape of those.

If you decide on this Deda, they ain't cheap but Ribble sells them the cheapest.

Luckily all of Deda's compact(RHM) have similar specs, ~75mm of reach and ~125-130mm of drop so you don't have to spend big to get the same shape. I love my zero100 bars on my commuter

Where is the new Hot or Not thread for grown ups? I can't find it.

*edit* Used Yahoo, Bing, AskJeeves, AOL, and Google searches and found it.

Now I really am confused. FWIW my Masi reminds me of my Ducati in that I love to just sit down with a cigar and a glass of cognac and look at in sitting in the garage. Guess the site won't let me upload a pic. Oh, well.

They both look like nice bikes with a lot of potential to be hot, which is roughly where I'd put mine (and RPK79's).

I actually love both of them. Thanks to it's steel frame (18 lb bike) and proper fit I'm really loving the Guru.

Don't get me wrong, the bike is totally hot, but I felt obligated to razz a bit

Get a Ritchey 88 in the rear and a 50 up front.
