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

Hot r Not

My bike got a makeover recently, making it much hotter IMHO. My apologies for the poor lighting in the photo:

Not hot. Cervelo makes a sexy TT bike, but their older road bikes look weird.

Ok, I'm throwing mine out there to be scrutinized:



And because I really liked the angle of a shot of another bike earlier in this thread:



It's a Lemond Poprad (duh) setup with road tires, a Bontrager compact crankset (instead of the stock 'cross crankset), and Shimano Ultegra pedals for road use. I like being able to ride light trails from time to time, so this one bike gets me both road and trail.

Hopefully soon I'm going to replace the stem with something not quite so angled, heh.

To each his own, but it's a 2008.

I tried out a couple of stems, but it looks like just flipping what I had is working perfect. Here's a WIP shot:
