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

Best BF Bike

Alright - been sipping a tad of whiskey on a Saturday night and thought I'd challenge BF to bring it. Who thinks they have the best bike on bike forums? I'm thinkin' a certain chrome Pinney. What've you got?

There are so many nice bikes here. I Love Diablo's Look

Thanks rollin, but I don't own the LOOK anymore...I've now got an 08 Ridley Noah and a 13lb 08 Scott Addict.

It would be tough to pick out anybody's single bike, but Rads chrome Pinny is damn pretty. Best stable goes to Racer Ex hands down. Nobody here has a more completely bad ass stable than he does. If you think you do ante up but your going to lose.

I vote for Machek. No one approaches his style, particularly in the pedals department.

I'll also add Ex is one of the very few on BF that can race his rig(s) in a manor that is equal to their bad assness.

Do they offer a remedial English class at a CC near you?

Don't get contrite. Get educated. There's more to life than being an imbecilic Road Nazi.
