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

Unflip it.

that is one sick bike. Is it yours?

not into the exposed cable routing from the shifters like that though. At least with new durace it's more hidden.

I like the silver cable in front and the white rear brake cable, matches the frame really well.

Beautiful bike. Love that color. But would somebody please start a thread to talk about that cable routing? Possibly one with a nice carpet and some antique furniture?

I have always been curious about those q-rings... Mostly I wonder how they will shift.... secondly I wonder how they feel to ride.

I specifically got the S2 because the S3 color scheme sucks. That and the cable routing. And the S2 was $1800 cheaper.

I would be nervous as hell with those crank arms. I wonder how much strength was given up for lightness with all of those drill holes..

it's not for lightness, it's so you can change the angle of the rings since they are elliptical

Not the same thing, several members here use them with great success, RacerX being one of them. I'm putting them on my LOOK and giving them a try as well.
