Hot r Not

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

^thats Hot. Shows how vintage can be practical and hot. Those Peugeots (early-mid 80s right?) w/ that paint scheme are like 80's vintage bike pron.

Unfortunately here in brooklyn, that Peugeot would be drooled upon by potential thieves 24/7... or worse... be converted into fixies.

I am sure you will mention this again, so maybe not unmemorable. I agree with the first two though.

I personally love it minus the FSA crank. I think it would look good with a blue saddle as well.

This is just my personal opinion but that ridley is UGLY. That top bar makes the bike look so odd. Hope he enjoys it though.

scared cat syndrome with so much curvature in the top tube. otherwise though I think it looks good. Part of the look is from the cranked up color saturation on the photo though.
