Addiction 2021.1

Notices
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

My Fatboy cost considerably less than $20k, even with all of the fancy upgrades. And it handles great in the snow.

I will say that it does feel pretty damn light to me when I heft it without the GPS, tail light/radar, headlight/video camera, and water bottles, though.

if it’s a 56 with your Zipps I bet it’s no more than 17#
