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

Funny, that is also mine. Except with the cosmic carbons, not the zipps.

I can imagine violent thief stealing that bike at *** point. No thanks. Also I would feel I'd have to always be moving at a minimum of 30 mph or I would be a disgrace to ride it.

It's funny, all the bikes posted so far, sanz the pegoretti (nothing wrong with it), were bikes that at one point I considered grail bikes. I guess I am not alone in this sentiment and I am actually of common taste.

I'll post my dream bike as of now when I come down to one.
