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

not a fan of the posture you have set up, but still cool bike dude.

Most bikes larger than 60cm have large head tubes.

Ultra Hot, hot, hot.

There's no mixed reception; just ignore if there is...

All are very nice. Do you have more photos of the Vitus 979? My 1st real road bike was a Motobecane Pro-Light that my older brother had outgrown.

Love the Pro Machine.
The Look would be great if the Zipp Logos were white.

Z5? Not a big fan of the decals though. I like their more classic looking ones better.

yeah, it's a Z5. It's one of the few off the rack bikes, that fits me well.

Guru Geneo, always HOT!!!
I remember test riding a Geneo w/Di2 at Roadworx, located in Syosset, NY. What a beauty that bike was equipped w/Di2.


Its no Geno , but here is my RT800 with a couple of new add-ons
