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

Am I the only one who thinks that the bar isn't centered left/right?

Beautiful bike

Centered or not, a bike to envy.

Nope not centred...

Reminds of my bud in Georgia who has the same bike...I straddled his and quickly noticed that his bars were twisted to the left a bit. Couldn't figure out how he wouldn't notice it considering he's as anal as the rest of us...

Oh yea...and one gorgeous bike!

Thanks guys, I've straightened the bar.

I just got the cranks on so I haven't adjusted the bars yet. Hopefully I would have caught it.

ColorChange, the next BFNIC ride is Saturday night at 11:30 pm starting from the deserted lot nowhere near the police station.

Make sure you bring that bike.

And pay no attention to the bullies with the lead pipes hiding in the shadows.

Very nice! It's a shame you're running 404 clinchers on that frame though... Weight weeniedom requires tubulars!

CyLowe ... very funny. You know the only reason I bought it was to beat Recursive in the climbs next year.

Here is a side shot.

Ok, time for OCP point deduction:

-1 (wrong side shot, should be drivetrain side)
-1 (chain not in big ring)
-1 (saddle bag on an SLC-SL)


other than that, that is one sick ride!! Enjoy

Surely you can get blingier cages. Or at least something racy like the Tacx Taos.
