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

I bet any bike would be photogenic when put against that wall...

It's not my kind of bike, but can't say I don't like it.

why are you getting rid of it?

better yet, why are the Garmin riders seldom seen on this bike?

I like photo number 4 but it needs a little of the dull foreground taken out. A friend of mine has just purchased the D90. Very nice camera.

I really don't want to sell, but I am need of a new car. My current car has 195k miles on it, and I think I am going to have sell this to put towards the down payment.

I am located in San Jose, CA, and for those locals, the pictures were taken at Santana Row.

Current car probably qualifies as a "cash for clunkers" money or some discount from Government Motors, keep the bike! Alas, do what you need to.

Is there a reason no one has commented that the bike can't be seen due to the lack of white garage door? Really though, nice bike - hope the new owner does it justice!

It's already sold, so not trying to advertise, just posting pics because it's a beautiful bike with a beautiful background.

That is indeed a pretty bike. Sorry you have to sell her.
The one thing I dislike about my Felt is that it's in that ugly stealth-bomber flat-black, (which is a good camouflage when ridden on asphalt, I suppose.)

Its an ok looking bike, nothing spectacular. The saddle and crank ruin the rest of the bike.
