Lance's new bike

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

Lance's new bike

Lance's new stealthy madone. I am digging the black on black. I like the fact that you aren't a moving billboard.

And that bike is nothing compared to the Colnago sitting on the counter behind it (I know the shop). Also murdered out, but with gold accents.

Who says it's lance's bike? Just because of the mellow johnny water bottles? I'm pretty sure lance would never ride with a seat bag.

A lot of people carry C02 in their jersey to keep from having a bag. Seat bag != C02

The seat bag isn't for CO2 -- he's got that annoying yellow car following him around for that.

The bag is for . . . medicinal purposes.
