I haven't had a new bike in 5 years, so I sold my old frame and put evertthing on this one. More stuff to buy next spring.

Don't know sh!t about road bikes, but that looks nice!

What's the frame made of?

A buddy of mine, who is a triathlete, rides a Kestrel too. Those are awesome bikes - but too expensive for me. (Heck - my Bianchi is almost too expensive for me, but I got it on sale.)


Yours is beautiful! Love the color.



(Coincidentally, I am posting while sweating - because I JUST got in the door from a bike ride, and decided to surf arfcom a little before showering.)

I'll assume that those seats aren't designed primarily for comfort.

Gun Mount?

Looks good, looks expensive.

It depends. I've got a add-on seat for my bike. It's light-years beyond the seats that come with the bike. It's got gel padding, plus I wear padded shorts. Makes those 20-25 mile rides alot more bearable. I actually find that seat more comfortable than the ones that come with the bike...you know, the ones designed for "larger people", have zero padding, and don't fit my ass well.

I wish I could justify the expense of one of those fancy light-weight bikes...maybe someday.
