Addiction LXVI

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 haven't used my medium format cameras for a few years. I must dig them out an get the film out of the freezer. I need to get my large format camera serviced before using it again. It's shutter is so slow.

Not for nothing, but most people of means have more dignity than to prance through a forum showing off all their expensive toys. And it's not about jealousy from others, because I have no interest in any of your toys. It's plainly just about a lack of class. Tacky, that is all.

I've also found a 2012 Specialized Shiv Elite for roughly the same price. Both have been for sale for an extended period of time.

Edit: advert says 2012, but google tells me that the 2012 had the new "nose cone" and the bike in the ad does not.

Edit Edit: it's the A1 model so 2012 is correct.
