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

Fits right in with its descendants.

I'd send you my 5D and TS-E 90, but you wouldn't know what to do with it.

Doesn't matter. I don't think they're going to get many Hots for a bike photograph at the LBS.

I'm giving you an Incomplete. You're obviously not finished putting it together.
