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

you are on to something there with lower profile rims, but finding gumwall tires to make those and box rims really pop, visually, is getting harder and harder!

I had 80's 105 hubs laced to ambrosios, but the blue lithion tires just didn't look right without a taller rim profile..

now i have this... well sorta:

I have a Trek 2.1 but can't find a nice clean place in my home to take a picture but here's one that'll do only my bike has 2 bontrager bottle cages (black with tiny white lettering, very minimalistic and light). I also have three spacers added as well.

Well quite a few have been added since my last post at the end of page 38. However, there is a heck of a lot of crap bikes added here too. I guess some of you confused this thread with the "what bike do you have" thread.

In any case, below are the ones I find hot:

Well, technically its a hot or NOT thread - so if you don't like a bike you can simply say 'not'. I've ripped on a few. (including that Pinarello you liked. Fugly paint job)

built piece by piece by me off ebay....

Stem, saddle, seat post, handlebars, all purchased with custom fitting.

Full Dura ace purchased (7800) but bike in pics currently has Ultegra installed. Last swap will be the components....

Tossed in white tires with the SL's to "cool down" the Ti.

That will make it lighter weight and stiffer (you meant to do that).
Looks really nice!
