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

Duct tape, bubble gum, a touch of WD40 and an insurance check. Chewing the gum and blowing bubbles, using the WD 40 to get the gum out of my hair, the duct tape for redneck leg hair removal and cashing the check to buy a frameset.

I have a new one in blue coming from a team mate. I like how it rides/rode a lot and the fit worked very well for me.

EPS and Boras √

Took the Ridley out yesterday for its last ride on the Bora Ones. Those are on the De Rosa now.

Duct tape is a Canadians answer for anything that's broke.

Thanks ! We can't see it well on the picture but the color is not black, the bike is glossy carbon fiber. Something like this:

I knew this one was coming. And I did think about EPS and Bora, but I really couldn't get my head around components made in Romania being any more of a fit than those made in Japan and America. Since it seems we're surely talking about geography rather than function or technology.

But, in all seriousness, the Di2 hoods feel better in my hand and that was really all that mattered to me. Is there really a debate that EPS functions better than Di2 or vise-versa?

Eps, (some) carbon, cassettes, chains and chainrings are made in Italy:

EPS (electronic) system components are made in Vicenza, but I was not allowed to see them being made, and carbon production was off-limits for photography.

i think centaur, veloce and lower end wheels mainly come out of Romania. (If it really manners)
