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

Here's a pic. Would you pay $3995 (MSRP according to Ellsworth site) for it now?



This white one is pretty ugly, but it may look better in red or black. I could see them catching on or at least becoming a fad, just not in this sub forum.
