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

I really like the subtle design of the Giant in that color. Really nice.

TCR's use a pressfit bearing with 24mm spindle diameter. That is just a GXP Red crank.

Been a while since I posted this one. Made a few changes and put a little over 6,000 miles on it.

Love the Colnago. Hawt! I know some people don't like the black saddle/white tape combo. I do for one. Great photos, great components, really like the colors. It's nice too not to see the same 'ol garage door photos too. Get the 2012 SRAM Red front derailleur.

Thank you. Ultegra front derailleur / chain catcher works perfect. If I manage to break it I may go for the new Red though.

LC's Colnago is one of the few that doesn't have overdone gaudy paint. I like it a lot, and consider it hot, but it would look better if the bartape matched the saddle. It's in the rules for crying out loud.

Thank you. If my saddle ever falls apart I may replace it with a white one. I've been riding that saddle for six or seven years now, it works perfect for me.

Hot! Staged in the wrong gear, but having a non-Shimano crank on an otherwise Shimano equipped bike nets bonus points that make up for it. Black chainrings would make it even better. Well done.
