    Oh that cinelli looks great. but ill ignore the site further as they only seem to be building bikes for midgets and not for true dutch giants like me :)

    And that pinarello looks nucking futs in the wrong way. Have they tried to melt it ?

    I lost my words. I suppose it cost a lot... ad the others.

    It has been always Expansive but since they are Sky partners ...

    Yep, that Pinarello looks like a full of steroids bodybuilder :)
    And I really don't like the shape of chain stay near the crank set. That little drop at both bikes. This is the trend now? It is ugly !
    Oh, and thank you Bram for calling us "midgets" :p:grinning:, you ... you ... giant :innocent::broken_heart:

    Haha, no that's really my frustration with the bike industry. They make 3XS frames to accommodate riders of 150cm but the moment you reach over 188cm it's easier to find a needle in a haystack than a solid fitting bike.

    Now you understand my passion for both Canyon and Rose Bikes who both still make XXL frames of 64cm or sometimes even bigger.
