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

Jesus, what is it about asians and bicycles? Every single bike shop in Taiwan (save for the Giant retail stores) has some kind of ridiculous stock of Time, Look, Pinarello, and Colnago. Lightweights everywhere, and one store even had some anniversary gold-plated Colnago and a 50th Anniversary Campy group on display.

Note: I'm asian

The frame, wheels and every last part on that bike were mail ordered from EU. I'll tell you what it is about Asians and bicycles - failing EURO and £

Note: I'm not asian

I like it too. I do funky mixes of colors on my bikes as well.

No, they're Bontrager XXX. I hate them. Braking power isn't great. They look good with the bike and that's about it. Unfortunately, new calipers are low on the schwag list, so they won't be swapped anytime soon.

Also, here's the full size version!

^ That is a good looking Felt, but the brakes don't compliment that frame very well IMO. Anyways, your bike gets a " mostly hot" from me.

Here is mine, in its latest iteration(s):

With Reynolds Strike wheels (I no longer have them, however):



With Zonda wheels and PMP titanium seatpost to replace the generic black aluminum one that used to be on there:
