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

White bikes are for girls. A few pull it off - that Ridley and the guy from Singapore that has the Time RXR with LWs. Both are top five.

I'm guessing you're not a big Team Radio Shack fan?

I like your style. I had a local sign/vinyl shop cut those out for my wheels. The OEM Enve black decals have a matte finish; I wanted the gloss black decals similar to the decals on their Smart wheels but without the "smart" logo. I just ordered a 2nd set decals for another pair of Enve 65s/DT Swiss 240s/Cx-rays thats going on the caad10. The white OEM decals definitely had to go since my caad10 is the gulf colored frameset.

I like that gulf frameset. I usually don't like bikes like that, but those colors work really well.

Why did you choose DT?

I bought it from a friend of mine who jumped on the Zipp FC bandwagon earlier this year. Probably my best bargain purchase of the year, $800 and the only time he took it out was on charity rides and our usual weekend ride(pending no rain, lol). I doubt the wheels even saw more than 5-600 miles which was too good to pass up.

hasn't happened yet. I considered trimming them down before but I find I like the ability to move my hands back in the drops, its relieving on my shoulders to have that small range of motion.

Whoooosh has some sweet bikes.

Spend fifteen minutes and take a decent pic of your repainted Venge with the 65s. We don't want to see the photo of it hanging on the wall. Top five.

Has great potential. I think a better picture would put it in Hot territory. I'm not feeling the bottle cages and white spokes.
