Giving up Ti and going back to carbon

Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

It was a demo model with caviar stains on the saddle and bar tape.

Looks like this thread is done here, that’s enough trolling for one week.
