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

My new build.

Ah, that's the bike that would fit me to a Tee, but one that I cannot justify the cost for myself. Congrats.

My team won $50,000 USD in video game tournament.

I took home $11,000 after taxes.

They can't catch me, I'll be rolling on 404's!

I'm going to say up front that the following is only meant in jest....

So, the parts are all over the world and supposedly on their way. And you think they'll all arrive in time for you to build the bike, take decent photos and get them posted with the complete story by Monday, July 17 at 11:00 AM (rounded up)?

I'll take that bet....

The following is not meant in jest....

Awesome build specs will equal awesome bike - good luck.

The majority of Colnago teams in the peleton for the last 10 years have been Shimano equiped. Its all good (although I do have my own preferences).

Yeah, I already have a Colnago with full Shimano, right down to the hubs.

So what's another Colnago with Shimano?

It's not like I'm going to hell...

I'm not going to hell, right?
