Another TRINITY bike?

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

Another TRINITY bike?

A few years ago, a guy named "Patriot", built a bike called Trinity.

Now, a bike frame named Liberty with a brand name of Trinity hits the market.

How ironic.



Ironically, it also has some similar paint lines to another bike painted by this Patriot guy.



The original.





It's good to be the Prez.

That's right, I forgot about that one.


What's funny, is I actually really like this frame. The shark fin is reminiscent of Treks old Madones. Do they still have those?

And, the straight blade forks remind me of the new ORCA.

Actually, a nice frame overall.

I've actually been wanting a RED bike lately too. I'm getting tired of Blue, even though blue bikes are my favorite color overall.

It looks somewhat Pinarello-esque. Do it!

Cool.

There is a Patriot Mortage company about a mile from me but on a road I seldom ride. I first noticed that place about the time you had Trinity painted. So whenever I'm on that road I think of BF and you.

P.S. I also think of Rad's paint job. Which was the hot button topic of the day.
