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

New toy ... K-Wing

After 5 years I figured it was time to get this. Will be going on a 06 Trek 5200 ... pretty much bone stock except the saddle.

Debating if I should upgrade the shifters cause the new style cable routing looks fresh. Eventually I'd like to build my own from the ground up so I don't want to upgrade this guy too much.

They will look sweet. the trick is the wrap, how far do you go? post pics before and after.

I loved my trek 5200 - the only bike I've sold and wished I keep.
