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

Watch out for those Miller School kids. Nothing makes you feel humble like getting stamped on by a 15 year old. Jake King just got himself a real contract, too...

Saw this bike on Weight weenies and had to share. What a Beauty! (IMO)

This bike has a couple things that I'm not usually fond of (Thomson setback post, -17 degree stem and bars completely flat, gold chain), but everything just works here!

Here is what the owner had to say:

I just completed my Master's degree, and am now moving up to the Bay Area. I'd been thinking of a new frame for quite a while; originally considered the orange Specialized Tarmac, but I couldn't get a decent deal on it. A friend at a LBS hooked me up with a 2013 Cannondale Evo and custom paint by the guys over at Cycle Therapy (they're in Orange, CA, go check them out!). So anyways, here's my gift to myself. Hope you enjoy!

Wheels look too big for that bike and the wheel badging is kind of annoying but nice color.

Yeah I think the Decals are going to be a love it or hate it thing. I think with the lack of cannondale branding, it works well. Could look clean without also though.

The EVO is sick. The CAAD looks good, too. I always liked that color scheme.

Awkwardly tall bike for an awkwardly tall rider..

Imagine how it would look with regular aluminum box rims!

They're aligned to the checkered flags on the smaller labels. It might look better with centered labels after reconsideration, though...

Looking at that Evo I had a similar reaction: Holy **** that's a short dude! Looks like a 49, maximum!

i like the evo, but one nitpick is that none of the whites on the frame,crank, wheels, saddle, or tape match

I have an opinion on the Evo, but since the owner didn't post it in the thread I'm going to reserve judgement.

Hot. I'm not a huge fan of the FFWD decals on this build, but otherwise it looks really good. Would probably fit me, too.

Two hot EVO's but because I'm a guy that likes color, I love, love, LOVE the blue EVO. Wow, what a beauty!

(When a bike is that hot, it makes the wheel decals ok to me…)
