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

Show me your RED bike!

I saw the white bike thread, so I thought it would be a good idea to not leave the red bikes out. It is the fastest color after all I'll get some pictures tomorrow

It's a road bike on the road yet due to refurbishing, but it's red.

Haha, thanks. Actually happened by mistake. Slashed a tire and LBS only had blue or red so I took red and figured i'd ride it till it dies.

Thanks again.

This is my dumpster dive 76 Raleigh Grand Prix. All I've done to it at this point is a good cleaning, new tubes, tires and cables. I also threw on some toe clip pedals I had. It'll be a fun rider for around the neighborhood. I have a short list of things I'll be adding over the winter when the mood strikes me to spend a little cash. The guys on the "new and improved hot or not" thread gave me some tips and ideas.
