i drank the kool-aid

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 drank the kool-aid

That's a sharp looking bike.

As was mentioned in another thread, add a set of Psimet wheels and Continential GP4000s tires and you'll have the total 41 Seal of Approval.
