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

Just out of curiosity, why would you order a bike and then promptly replace the cranks? Wouldn't it make more sense to just get the crank you want from the get go?

What color is that seat? It looks like it's mint green.

I wasn't expecting the bike to come in this early. It was supposed to come in late May, when I got the call I went and picked it up brought it home and put it together myself, since I used to be a bike mechanic. Its been raining here where I live on Long island and is supposed to rain through monday and the cranks should be in by tuesday, I figured before I ride i'll throw them on.
But the saddles white, the camera couldn't handle it's brightness lol

That is a good looking bike. I'd ride it even with a green saddle.
