the one that got away.....or not!

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

maybe you sold a bike that you pine for. or perhaps you still have a sordid affair with a bike.....so whats the bike you have the most fond memories of or perhaps you still own it!!

ill start. i am obsessed with a lemond nevada city. its reynolds 853 steel but other then that, nothing left on it is stock. its sexy, the paint is sweet, it ride like its on rails, and its the first road bike i ever purchased as an adult. i spent my life riding mountain bike and to this day its the ffn grin machine. and you???
