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

So subtle and sublime ... Hot.

Thanks for sharing.

wow modern steel! Hot. Please put up some nice detailed pics (or provide a link to some!).

I'm really intrigued by the stem. Its replicates a quill stem's clean look/angles (increased stack but with -17º bend). According to VO the 100mm weighs 148grams. Can you verify that? If so thats actually great - considering the extra stack height built in.

great build. I always wanted a Traitor Ruben but ended up getting a Redline Metro Classic.

Thanks man. Appreciate the compliments. nice Metro btw.

Anyways, about the stem...weight of 148g seems a little optimistic considering the stack height. However, it doesn't FEEL likes it weighs much more than my nitto UI-2EX that it replaced -and that was around 150g thereabouts. I do like the look on a steel bike...and its performed just fine.

Looks like I will have to snap a few more pics of the bike!

Whoa! Both those bikes are awesome! What cassettes are you running on those wheels? Titanium carbide coated cogs just like the chains? Both frames have that funky top tube flowing into the seat stays thing going, but it works on these two bikes... Not usually a fan of black De Rosas, but the green pops out great! HOT

Here's a pic from the side. I also swapped the Bontrager for a cordless model from my 7.5FX.

Thanks. Both bikes are equipped with Recon 11-25 cassettes; not the same coating as the KMC X11sl chain but a ceramic coated finish.
