This is hysterical throughout but you have to watch all the way to the last seconds for a great punch line.

How do you say gorgeous in Italian?  This makes my beautiful Wilier Izoard look downright pedestrian.

New rig, courtesy of the folks at Aceco Sports Group/K-Edge in Boise.  Simply put the best bike I have ever owned by a wide margin.  Went on my regular uphill training ride and shaved one and a half minutes off my previous best time (56:20 vs. 57:50) and I am nowhere near in as good a shape as I was when I did that last best time.  That’s what a 21.1 lbs (with pedals) 29” CF rocket will do.  That Orbea is STIFF but comfortable, handles like a 26er but rolls like the 29er it is.  Everything on that bike is spectacular but what takes the prize is the beyond awesome Ki2 electronic shifting system. Designed and developed by the Aceco folks from the road Di2 gruppo.  It just works amazingly well.  You shift just because.  Anyway, what’s up with a white bike and a white car, both spectcularly fast (save for the driver/rider)?  Coincidence?  I think not.

Super cool video on may levels: great production, nicely shot, a car on the Isle of Man TT course (!), a course record (for cars), insane driving (check out the two moments from various angles at the 4:30 mark).
