The Chronograph was very special, but more than I wanted to spend - maybe next time..

Bah, carbon? Ti, baby, ti. :P

But there is still no titanium watch in my collection to match the Merlin - closest so far was the almost-buying of a Ti/Ta/RG SeMP Chrono...

Campy or Shimano?

Shimano.

I'd need a Boron Carbide Ceramic Metal Matrix to match my bike.

I vote for a cycling thread. Not just road bikes, not just Italian ones. All cycling. Especially beautiful everyday getting groceries/off to work/going to the cafe kind of cycling.

/M, using a fixed 70s DeRosa Primato as commuter...

My wife took one look at the Manometro and offered to buy it for me. Usually she just rolls her eyes when I'm looking at watches.

I'm sorry to disappoint you - but it's not a Ti/Ta/RG bike...

Anyway, haven't got any pics of the stallion by itself, but I'm riding from time to time (yep, that means all of the time...) and taking pics, mostly of the beautiful coastal scenery around here. Sometimes I show up on the pics too...


Tomorrow morning I'll go for a dirty little ride with the Surly 1x1 on some tight, twisty singletrack...

Yes, to stay somewhat OnT;


A grail watch arriving today - Seiko MarineMaster SBDX001, pictured with a silicone tropic. A simply amazing piece.

Heres' my Cinelli Mecano (& before you say anything.. I know.. How could I put Shimano on an Italian steed.. Give me a break, it is my first roadie & I wasn't sure how long I would stick with it.. I already went over my budget by x2!!!) My bella in front of my bruto (AR 147GTA #100/100 now gone & replaced with a 159SW) Are we ready to see me in Lycra & with hair? Too the moderator feel free take off if a man in Lycra offends.. Darn- have we hi-jacked this thread.. Here's a pic of my Omega 45.5mm Planet Ocean next to bike top tube:

I have a series of pics of women on bikes.. Daily attire not lycra.. Something about a stylish women casually riding a bike with a basket..
