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

Kevin,

I have an old 30lb pendulum scale in my garrage and my friends, as well as myself, always weigh our bikes just to compare. It's not easy to get a bike below 16lbs, and weight is always understated by the industry. I agree with you that people should repect each other though, in reference to that response. After all, to be friendly and help people, specially those with common interests, should always be a pleasure.

Anyway, my view is that you can never go wrong to buy Colnago equipment, it is regarded as the best by a lot of people.

The Colnago comments are your own. I have heard both sides. Good and bad on Colnago.

Was just looking at this olde thread. 16lbs isn't as tough as it used to be. What's the "new" 16 pound barrier? 14?

$5 to the person who dredges up the thread that this is in reference to.

(That's 5 internet dollars, not 5 US dollars.)
