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

Pics of my Debernardi Zona (for those who care)

I've never seen another one on the road so I thought I would share

The tires were a nightmare to mount when I first got them, but they got easier to work with since then (and I have had to work with them to fix a couple flats ). Once the rims wear out I'll get some Open Pros around CK hubs, maybe.

ck hubs...the few times I been on the road with someone on ck hubs, they have been very noisey...the rachet sounds like a blender. I guess it keeps you from coasting. btw, I've heard that ck will be moving their operations to Oregon soon.
