Bikes I Have Known And Loved - ericlorenzo
My Gary Fisher X-Caliber.  I got this bike when I noticed that (a) I hadn't ridden the Volpe on pavement in months, and (b) I was starting to feel like the Volpe was holding me back, off-road.  Riding the X-Caliber on some nice winding downhill singletrack is the first time that a bicycle has given me the same raw exhilaration as riding a motorcycle.

But it's a little large for me, and since I've gotten better (and better-fitting) mountain bikes, I haven't been riding it very much.  I think it's on its way out the door, too.
