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

The red racing 7's. We all need some bling. Besides, I was never really a fan of radially spoked wheels.

You are looking at a front wheel (top) and a back wheel (bottom). The front wheel on Racing 7s is radial laced regardless of color.
