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

Strangely hot, get those stickers off the wheels though. Good choice on purple.

I happen to have white pedals too, but too lazy to put them on. besides, the beat up pedals gives it character.

Get the stickers off the wheels and it's boiling, just "hot" currently.

Very hot, it would be nice to back wheel also get the purple treatment. Tilt the bars down a bit tops should be flat. Might the angle of the photo though.

You can't see the rear hub because there is a cassette in the way, lol.

Good to see another Norco! I'd level out the handlebars and shifters, still hot though.

I have the same Boyd ghost lettering on my wheels and you really have to look at them from the right angle to actually see the name.

The bike would be hotter if you put it into the fireplace... sorry.

Why does my bike keep coming up here? I didn't post it. Someone else decided to for me, and that picture is quite old as it looks quite different right now.

I clearly don't fit in here. I like the Felt a lot more than a lot of the C&V bikes here with ugly frame pumps, etc. that are declared HOT.

Do we really want to argue "what is a road bike" again?

Haha, I figured I'd post it to lighten the mood a bit and maybe rustle some feathers. Wasn't expecting admiration!
