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

Also MIN,
What's your stem? I'm looking for a silver (26mm) and all I can find us a Nitto and an old Ritchey.
Nice pic!
