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 saying.

i still think the 2009 white and red CAAD9 scheme is totally hawt. if could have waited, which i cant because i have no patience, i would have picked up a lightly used one from eBay or Craigslist for this build.

great thing about true custom wheels from a true custom wheel builder is you can get whatever you want. white decals are the team standard. you could get red, stealth gloss black, blue, ect.... you could and your initials on there, ice cream cones, ect... custom baby. later.

Really classy build. I love it. I'm a big fan of that paint job too, probably moreso than the white/red. Nicely done mate.
