    Similar greens but Choke's may be slightly more metallic, the other one I think we use in the Team 7-Eleven paint scheme.

    That's hilarious. And great. Carry on. :-)

    Steve, mine is metallic for sure but I thought it was the green from the 7-Eleven bikes....it's PPG 47639.

    It's the perfect intersection of functionality, good looks, and obsolescence. Which sums up my bicycles for that matter.

    Here's my Hampsten Strada Bianca ti S&S bike. But you knew that just from looking, of course. All packed and ready for some fun.

    Next batch of photos will be from the Dolomites.

    Gross weight on my scales: 49.5 pounds. Close.

    Awesome! Fantastic pic of the bicycle preparations you’ve done.
    Have a great ride and do keep VSalonistas posted. That is so cool.

    My well-travelled SB chalked up another ascent of Mt Ventoux last week. Even took me along for the ride.
