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

well he just got a '12 SL4 I have the '09 Orca, we've both been wheel shopping...sorta. I'm considering an upgrade to the S5 or the Venge, so I could sell mine and use the money gained or keep it and we both could put the money towards wheels.

just realized I may have to pay taxes on that =/ although it's been ridden so I don't think it can be considered "new" so I don't know if I would then.

You suck. I thought I would win the tour de france madone but somehow it didn't work out. I certainly entered enough times. I did win a jersey though so I guess that's something.

Seriously though, congrats.

Congrats!

With all that black and yellow, you should auction it off outside a Pittsburgh Steelers game. You could both retire.

i feel like thats the only thing holding the price back lol. I would never buy it, I will however ride it a few times. It's a beautiful bike, I'm just not in to the whole livestrong or yellow thing. Hopefully we can find a armstrong fanatic.
