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

Well, seems like this thread has certainly lost its purpose a couple of dozen pages ago. It went from what the title says to "post any bike".

i think if it doesn't have race wheels it shouldn't be in here...cause let's face it, with the exception of a few sweet vintage bikes if it's not racing it's not hot.

disagree, sometimes low profile rims make a bike look straight sexy as a climbing bike

People who judge a bike simply by the name on the down tube are ignorant at best.....

agreed, as I mentioned I think the geometry / larger sizes generally, just don't look as cool as say a 58cm or smaller.

I don't think a bike has to be a race bike to be hot, but I do think that bikes without something that resembles a race fit look pretty wonky.

Anyway, I figure I may as well post this. It's not my race bike, but I still think it's pretty sweet. I may swap the stem with something that matches the aesthetic, and the stock saddle will soon be replaced with an Arione (the same saddle on my other two rides).

A nice retro-looking stem is the TTT Mutant, and you can save some money on the Arione with the Nashbar GR2.

This is what the Mutant looks like and I have seen them for 1 1/8 steerers as well.

Here's my Waterford 2200 ... decked out in a custom Waterford maize and blue repaint.
Edit: How do I post pics so they are larger in the actual thread vs. having to open a thumbnail?

How to turn a single speed commuter into a track bike. (really... I have a velodrome local.)


Now I wonder where my pictures of the bike with the new saddle are...


Be honest :-) I take enough heat for having sora shifters on a $1000 frame.

Now I realise I really need to get updated pictures of my rides. Even my beater is "dated" as it's got a new stem on it.

Methinks I need to fix these pictures problems soon. Perhaps Friday.

Edit: The artifacting is driving me crazy. Just click the pictures to see the good stuff.

You're only fooling yourself if you think that's a $1000 frame. And it's ugly.
