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

i like it too but that computer wiring needs some help...

1.buy crystal clear packaging tape
2. tape wire from handlebar to down tube on shifter cable housing
3. tape wire on downtube between two shifter cables
4. tape wire on bottom inside edge of chian stay
5. sit back and enjoy!
as long as you use the tape sparingly, paralell with the tubes, (dont wrap tape around the tube) and are careful not to get dirt or fingerprints on it before you apply, it will be barely noticeable and wont droop off the tubes.

not that the Waterford isn't nice, but I am pretty damn sure that contextually he is saying WTF to the tandem Shiv.

What a sick fricken bike. The guys at Specialized should have put that money into "persuading" the UCI in to thinking the Shiv is 100% UCI legal.

Didn't think the quote( which would have been a repost of the picture, slowing the thread down a bit) was necessary-obviously I was referring to the S Works tandem,
and there isn't anything else deserving a WTF on this page. If you wanted to post the picture again, just do it.

nothing wrong with updating the style of something classic with new functional pieces.

take pro touring cars for exacmple:

To each his own. I personally don't like the look of all wheel and no tire on any car and it looks particularly tacky on a classic 60's muscle car.

Some amazing bikes in this thread, especially that tandem...

This is one of the hottest, but the owner complained about the lighting in this pic, so I gave it a tweak:

This is so everyone else will look better. It does have one advantage over all the other bikes in this thread. It's mine and I get to ride it. From stock, I added a shorter stem for fit, 105 FD and RD, 105 crankset, A520 pedals, Terry Liberator Y-Gel saddle, BWW Mavic OP/Ultegra wheels, Ultegra 12-27 cassette and Rubino Pro tires. Put my 37 year old Zefal pump on there because it works worlds better than the crappy compact I bought and is only about an ounce heavier.
