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

for an example of a well decorated bike, check out herbie's guru. near enough to perfection. mine is a bit too flamboyant which won't work for most sensible people.
There was a red Trek in one of the Trek threads- duh- someone was calling the McDonald's bike. I'll see if I can find a pic. Some people thought it was over the top but there are just so many black bikes that something with some red and yellow really pops by comparison. Plus I like the geometry of the older Treks.
