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

Definitely a non-canonical photo, crappy cellphone too. Sorry guys. In my defence, it is on a French hilltop.



Original was black on black on black. I changed the saddle & bars, added red bar tape, cages, pedals. Can't tell from this pic, but I have red spoke nuts on the RS80s, and a red tip on the minipump too.

I haven't actually taken proper pics of my new Neuvation yet. Here are some that I have as of right now:





I have some black Camelbak Podium's to match it now, much better than those big Chill ones.

Something about that white stem that throws me. I think if you keep that white stem you should add white hoods OR get a black stem and use white bar tape.

Here is a cross-post from my posting in the "What road bike do you have?" thread:

Hey guys this is my first time posting. Just got into Cycling a couple of weeks ago on a whim. I've been riding as much as I can in my free time. I'm have done about 250km so far. Steadily increasing my distance and pace.

Here is my first (and modest) road bike: 2011 Giant TCR 1

I'm saving so I can order one in November (hence the name). Except I'm going to get the 38mm SOB (side of beef) clinchers

Looks better in person. It just needed more white in the front, and I didn't want anything white that was able to get dirty, like the tape and hoods. I'm too lazy to wash that crap every week.
