“‘It all started with a stem cap…’ That’s what I say when addressing my affection for pink.
“This is Kate, my itty-bitty 48cm 2005 Orbea Mitis, decked out in her pink accoutrement. Full Campagnolo (as befits any steed from the Basque region) with Speedplay Light Actions and a Fizik Arione saddle. The cockpit bears the Chris King Pretty and Strong stem cap and Deda Elementi bar tape. Bontrager bottle cages. Schwalbe Stelvios over the 38mm Campy Shamals (otherwise, black Race-lites over 24mm Ventos).
“She’s zippy fast, a blast to ride, and apparently memorable in the eyes of others who’ve remembered her from rides several months previous. Most people quickly realize she’s pinked out for breast cancer awareness, which is exactly the point (although my jersey invoking breast cancer awareness may also help). Who says men don’t like pink?
“Great web site–keep up the awesome work!!”
