Yeah Spidey, you're quite right. Bias makes the world go round

 

But there's a number of other cool bikes there as well - still love that Specialised of Tom Boonen and the CSC Cervelo, but Ivan Basso's Discovery Trek is not the most visually appealing trek I have seen. Bet you he's going to ride something else at the GIRO!!

 

Oh, there's also a giant for those that are interestedLOL

MERIDA Colors... can't they be a bit more original?

 

Hey.  It is the Sponsor's color scheme of their business. 

What the sponsor says, rules!!!
