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

My new ride

I really liked my allez elite, but couldn't resist this one.
big shout out to Gearhead outfitters in Jonesboro, AR.

Best bike! I might be a little biased though since I have the same one...even down to the same water bottle cages as you

She's a beauty. Ted will certainly hook you up in Jonesboro! Nothing against the LBS here in Memphis as there's some fine ones (especially Bikes Plus), but Gearheads has the prices and service! Only an hour away from the bridge!

Love those colors! Sweet!

Nice, congratulations.

No saddle to bar drop?

If the saddle is fitted correctly then a zero offset post way look neater (just my OCD)

Boring bike with mid-level drivetrain. What is all the hublub to have a whole new thread started for? There is already an existing thread to post your bike in there.

Love that flat black paint and the not-overdone branding. Simple and elegant. Well done.

Someone piss in your cheerios this morning?

It's by far the best looking color scheme I've seen on a Special Ed. I actually think the bike is very sexy looking, mid level drivetrain and all, and that's saying a lot because I really don't like the look of thse bikes.

I still want to know the price of it. Had to be a big sale since the SL4 is out now.

Dickbag replies are allowed, right?!? This is the 41.

Watch it now...you're gonna get hit with..."oh...boo-hoo, I'm the bad guy for disagreeing with somebody on the interdweebs".
