    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...


    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..

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

    Both awesome watches. [​IMG] The PO/brown strap combination is lovely.

    el Guapo WOngO!; yes, that's what I mean. Normal, regular, everyday bike riding is beautiful. A cute girl on an old bike always makes me weak...

    Nice ride - although compacts, loud logotypes and carbon isn't my cup of tea. I like it a little more...subdued. The Merlin has all of its logotypes removed (except the head badge and Tom Kellogg's signature on the chainstay), as well as the components'.

    Btw - there's nothing wrong with Shimano. I just like the feel and look of Campy better. Would never rate Shimano as lesser - it's a matter of taste.

    SoCal - is that you in the gaudy Rudy Project gear? [​IMG]

    OK, every rider in the thread is shown except me - enjoy! (last season Elite class CX racing);

    gld203: is that a vintage memovox? quite striking.

    Guapo: impeccable taste in cars and watches. Would love to see pics of your 159 SW. perhaps you can post it, if you have one, on the car ownership thread. We americans are denied seeing these works of art on our roads.

    [​IMG] Speedmaster in control. I'm looking to buy an affordable B-Uhr. Probably as a daily beater. Incoming IWC Flieger and/or Breitling Montbrillant

    Beautiful!
    Thanks!

    It is. Although I suspect the dial has been refinished and repainted (the font is not quite right IMO), the case, movement and crowns are all original. The bumper rotor is quite noticeable on the wrist...

    My traveler beater - just so I know what time it is back at home. Also, there are so many fake Rolex's that people don't even look twice.

    New style Rolex TOG - the new style Jubilee makes up for all the years of bad bracelets from R. (background is my old Zero Haliburton briefcase for travelling).

    Me too so I'll see you in Hell. I came close to buying the middle one (even at 44% off I did not); but, now they seem to be the favored Canal St. fake of the Barneys Co-Op employee (usurping a fake Chanel J-12).
