    On ebay now, the oldest Rocky Mountain I have seen. This might be when RM was the house brand for West Point Cycles, my neighbourhood bike shop at one time.

    Colnagoista did a nice job matching the Nokon housing to the frame. The stem looks odd, maybe for an integrated computer? Rims are awful.

    Colnago used to be so good back in the 70s. Weird how their fans love them no matter how bad the product is, kind of like Campagnolo fanbois.

    25 pounds extra to have brakes cables hooked up Euro/USA style?

    You are right, downtube branding is enough, that is a much nicer look than the team one shown above.
    Venge is awesome.
    A lot of the stickers on bikes are point of sale aids. Nobody needs a reminder that their frame has countervail in its layup, or that their frame is a 54. These stickers should be removable by the buyer.
    Specialized are the worst for bar code stickers, some of their frames have four or five big ugly bar code stickers. I'm never going to scan those.

    Lots of internet chatter that many parties want Epstein dead before he spills the beans. Where are his secretly recorded sex tapes? What crooked financial deals did he make? Was he linked to intelligence? Whose intelligence, CIA, FSB, Mossad?

    The only good looking bike in Tour is the blue Wilier that Direct Energie uses.
    Those Bianchis are a mess. Too many logos, bad striping, just paint it Celeste all over.
    The Roval wheels need a makeover too, why not just put ROVAL on them instead of that mess. Did they buy decals that were too big and can't get the whole thing on the rim?

    Quintana? Who? That was cold.

    Re Pinarello, I like mine. Never weighed it but rides fine and hasn't broken under my fat ass.

    i'm not trying to be an asshole

    You do seem hell bent on breaking the rules and rationalising it.

    I work at the Winnipeg airport.
    A few times there have been emergency landings due to drunk assholes. 50k barely covers the cost. It's not just one plane, every plane in the stack has to be rescheduled, runways have to be cleared, takeoffs and landings are all screwed up, hundreds of people can miss their connections.
    Anyone who gets drunk/high/stupid and causes this should have a lifetime ban worldwide.
