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

Just built up NOS SST frame from 2011. Got it for a crazy low price. Pulled the Force off my Altamira for use on this bike and found a killer deal on a take off Ultegra group for the Altamira. All other parts I already had save for the bottle cages and Garmin mount. Very much an impulse purchase but I'm very happy with it. Totally different feel from the Altamira.

Yeah, I had built the bike with a different wheel than my race wheels, wanted to see what it'd look like race ready. I run a 39 front and a 42 when the course is super flat and a 12-27 cassette.

Awesome. Only the stem costs you points - but as that is probably functionally required for you, it really shouldn't.

The frame lines, the color, the traditional top tube and geometry. Beautiful.

So much nicer than the generic big corp carbon billboards that have littered this thread (not to mention the roads). Generic products for generic people. I had one for a few months. Completely uninspiring both to ride and look at.
