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

Here you go. http://www.vomaxgear.com/nhl-washington-capitals-c-4_62

Wore it for the first time last night. I like it. On the W&OD trail a little kid about 8 or 9 yelled out as I passed "Caps Rule!"

No shakes on mine at 30+ mph. Sorry you had a bad experience. This bike will let me keep my carbon race bike inside all winter on the trainer. That is its purpose in life.

My girlfriend picked up this jersey for 8.00 dollars at a thrift shop. (They had it the Halloween section) I thought the design was awesome!

2010 Gaint TCR Advanced SL 2
Changed the handlebars to 3T Ergonova Team but otherwise stock. 15.8 lbs with cages and pedals for a size Large isn't bad. Forgive the spacers, I'm still dialing in the fit.

Took the long cage off a Rally RD I bought and put it on my SR for wider gearing choices.
