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

Quality eBay ad.

Spotted this ad on th'eBay.
He states categorically in the description that the hole is NOT due to falling off. His reflection in the window may suggest otherwise...

It's more aero. Plus it matches up with the curving top tube.

whats funny about the assos auction is that he claims the hole isn't from a crash, but if you look at his reflection in the window he is clearly wearing a sling!

What is even MORE funny is that this dude probably got that sling from the hospital, suggesting he indeed DID crash!!
