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

Had a minor change over the weekend, after I found a crack in my handlebars. Decided to go with a 3T Ergonova team bar. Then changed the wrap to Fizik and put a -17 degree 3T ARX Team stem.

Now that's a stretch!

Hot doesnt describe it proper - rather beautiful! Good job! Excellent!

Really really nice machine. Classic looks and beautifully restored, but I can't call it hot. I am too much of a fan of newer road bikes. However, this reminds me of my first road bike - which I loved and rode to death (literally - killed it in a crash).

Can I play? I built up a Nashbar AL/Carbon frame a few months back and have fallen in love with it. Shimano Ultegra has been a dream.
Since I got the bike I upgraded tubes and tires, handlebars, pedals, saddle, seatpost and I just received in the mail today Kinlin XR-200 rims and ultralight hubs from bikehubstore.com that will be built up and save quite a good amount of weight from my current Mavic Aksiums.

Started at 18.5lb, now around 17.4lb. New Wheelset should bring the complete bike with cages and computer to the 16 range. Thoughts?......

Honestly with my goofy body, and the tall head tube on the CR1, it actually feels more comfortable than it did with the previous stem.

At first glance, I dismissed it as a "not". But after really looking, I like it.

My vote is "HOT"

Cool bike.

Thank you. The bottle cages are from Stradalli. Cages are around 18g each and come with water bottles.

Potentially a hot bike though.
