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

I thought you meant more of a juicy orange color and that you were crazy for suggesting Mango but I gotta say I am really digging this. What kind of saddle is that? Definitely pointier than a Charge spoon.

On my nickel plated Park Pre I had red Easton tape for a couple of days.



Then went black for about a year.



I had these gigantic golden Truvativ Danny Hart bars that needed to go somewhere, so that's what's on now.

Gold carbon Deda tape might look nice on that Allez, if it doesn't clash with decals too much.

Let's just take a moment to reflect on this.

I wish this Baum was mine, but I saw it on the Busyman blog, the saddle is "selle something"... Busyman Bicycles: Selle Something Whiskey
