Who is the king kahuna of calfs here?

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

If you think you got some big cylinders on your engine, take a pic and post it here. Lets see who's done their training and can take the honors. Calves only PLEASE lol I'll post mine in a bit

You do realize the involvement of calves in cycling is minimal don't you. Glutes, hams, and quads a good cyclist do make.
