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

Well at least he'd got the critical 200 gram rotational weight saving to offset the 15 lbs of extraneous crap on the bike.

Looks like it's set up for self-supported long-distance racing. What's the problem?

^ ground pad.

I bet the OP would be embarrassed if this turned out to be one of the rigs used on the Great Divide Race .

Eh, I know it looks strange taken out of context but anyone who has a Moots w/Zipps probably isn't an idiot. I'd be curious as to the back story on it.

This guy is a big time Moots fanboy. His trips are absolutely amazing.
