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

After looking at his twitter feed, it appears that he's completely serious about that bike. Guy is a lonewolf for sure.

Also...so much kit, yet none of it fits properly.

I find it funny that we keep talking about this bike. We should probably just give it a hot and move on.

Yeah, not staged properly, but it was the only way I could make it work with that backdrop.

Really? Red, white, and blue, too many? That's un-American.

IMO, would be hot if extra spacer chopped off, and different bottle holders. Nice photography though!

yes, but expect the little people on this forum to ask stupid questions about your height.

I think it's almost hot, but I'm no fan of Cervelo.

How about my son's Madone 6.5... it's a 61cm.

BTW, the white cages were replaced with black and he has a set of Bontrager Aeolus 5 tubular for racing.

I think that it's an awesome bike and pretty good looking (most bikes with tall head tubes look awful), but I wouldn't say that it's lusty hot. Also, not something that I would ever change for aesthetic reasons, but the saddle and compact drops look tiny and a little incongruous, given the scale of the frame.
