Hot r Not

Notices
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

But you need one of those red cranks to make it look good.

Page 1 - I like the Giant and the Moots
Page 2 - Cervelo!
Page 3 - the Giant
Page 4 - Pinarello, Moots, Ravenmore's black bike.

The Moots on page 4 is jawdroppingly gorgeous. I want to marry it even though I know it will sleep with my friends.

There is no more fitting crank for a race rig than an SRM.
