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

I would get a custom bike made to my measurement and specs, specifically for the type of riding I do, by a master builder, and paint it with any color I want, and get my name put on it in Sterling Silver......

... hummm.. that is exactly what I have now...

Gotta second the Vanilla. Buddy of mine just picked up his fixie after well over a year waiting. Beautiful bikes.

I'll just have to settle for the paint job.

I second that - I just bought one decked out with full DA. It ships on Tuesday. I can't wait to tackle some hills with it. The Evoke has not gotten the attention it deserves which is good for me because there are less on the road. Kestrel pulled through again with this one. They have been masters of CF since the 80's.

One of these road bikes, but just with a Rohloff 14-speed internal hub instead of the whole derailleur, that would be good.
