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

As a percentage of body weight...my bike is lighter.


I think yours are prettier though.

The manufacturer is Kestrel and model name is Evoke from 2005/2006. The current Evoke line paintjobs, esp. that of the evoke SL, is regrettably not so great.

Just having a laugh. Awesome set-up on the evoke (both actually). The bar-tape/wheels take the edge off of the paint scheme...they all work very well together. Nice stuff!

I'm really weirded out by the seat-post / frame-size discrepancy. What, exactly, are you shaped like?
