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'm definitely a fan of the special edition paint job, but I'd be so pissed the first time it got dinged....

No fair looking at the exif stuff!

For sure I cannot achieve that kind of bokeh blur using my handy dandy 5 year old consumer super zoom....

I have a browser extension that displays EXIF info by simply hovering over the photo. I used to use if for work, but not so much, now. I will say, though, that I'm often flabbergasted that people leave their GPS data embedded in their photos - there are dozens of bikes on BF with maps to the garage door. Phones are the biggest culprits.

That's much newer than my poor 5D.

Wow. Tha's a beautiful bike. Photos are nice as well! (Is that your driveway?)

WhyFi, I'll have to remember to that. Take my photos while on the road… although I don't think my bike is hot enough to steal. Harold, though… jk, but smoking hot Venge.

Tbh I would have thought a thief would be much more likely to go after the camera itself rather than the bike (although I guess maybe not in the case of something like the 5D). My camera gear is probably worth 3x what my bike is and it's a lot easier to jump in a car with.

Meh, we live in the digital age, if someone knows how to use google, they can probably figure out your address. With a little searching of my screen name, you can easily find my full name, where I work, and where I live. If someone really wants to stalk me and steal whatever it is, that's cool, I have insurance. I don't mind getting free new stuff.

(Heh, just googled my user id, there are SpeshulEd imposters!)

Noted. Although I'm not too worried since guest(s) have to present themselves to the doorman first and since we're past the 20th floor, a special key is needed to get further up the building.

I've got the seat as far forward as it will go on a zero setback seatpost to compensate for the seat tube angle.

Stoker puts her elbows on the aerobar pads, and holds on to the captain's seatpost. The top of her helmet touches my butt. Quite aero, not a great view.

Tonight's TT is the first time we've been able to measure power front and back, so we'll see how much power.

the matching stem/seatpost (and cranks) is actually what solidified the "hot" for me. I don't know what your bottle cages were before, but the white/black looks right
