I don't get to decide anything so don't bother critiquing.

Hopefully with a blingin' Psimet wheelset...

Needs green tape. That silver doesn't jive with the bike.

Yeah that's one thing I'll change asap.

It will be nice to have a race bike and a training bike. Just need to make sure I get them set up the same.

It better be. I'm sick of waiting. I don't like waiting for new bikes. And our sponsor being Taiwanese is not the great for delivery times, especially when crates are beign shipped over.

Oh please. There's nothin wrong with spending energy on aesthetics, to a certain degree.

You have to do me a favor. Pedal the sh*t out of that thing until the BB shell breaks out. The win would be so awesome.

I thought that might have been mandated as well. Good thing you can change that, it'll fix the whole bike.

I'm pretty sure we can run black tape. And I'll definitely be changing the saddle anyway to my beloved black slr.

WR, I'm not sure I have the kg's to do that

Thanks.

Amazingly enough, I haven't even ridden the bike yet due to the weather up here. The mechanic that put it together with the pile of pieces I gave him advised everything shifts perfectly. I've ridden Shimano exclusively, and I don't foresee any compatibility issues from the research I conducted before going with the Microshift components. Trust me, she will get flogged when the crit season starts up here.

LOL. Since when has "practical" ever come into the equation where road cycling is concerned??? LOL! Besides, I got a couple other bikes for those days when the temp is less than 75F. Further, to run a white bike, you better have some substance to go with that style, and I gots plenty of substance...

Oh yeah, good to know you like the bike that much that you're concerned about it getting a little dirty too...Thanks...
