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

hahaha, I guess that's a legitimate reason, but I like the blue a lot. Seems like all of us have nothing but black bikes (including me) and that one looks clean to me. Not smoking I wanna hump it hot but I'd ride it without a second thought.

For some reason, lately I've gone the opposite way and I've started loving the bowed frame. Like I'm tempted to sell one of my bikes just to buy an SST or something to get a bowed frame to build. They just catch my eye a lot.

I think if you put some 38 or deeper carbon wheels on here and swapped the tape and saddle I'd definitely vote Hot, but again, that's just my personal preference.
Well if he rides regularly then that tape will be black in no time. I'll never do white tape again it just ends up looking gross.

Might as well cross-post mine from the Other Thread:

I'm not a fan of flat black bikes but the gold chain matching the gold Cannondale logo is an inspired touch.

As I said above, kind of tired of black bikes but this one is gloss instead of flat and the red and white trim is well done (maybe a bit too much white on the chainstay). I like it.

Got this one back up and running a couple of nights ago. I forgot how nicely 9 speed Campy (Daytona/Veloce) feels. I need to re-acquaint myself with this ride.

These photos don't do the color justice. Hot bike, needs deeper race-wheels though.

One of the best looking mass-produced frames on the market, great looking wheels too. Fire hot.
