New addition to the stable...

Not saying another word until it officially arrives (hopefully today), in fear of jinxing it. But, stay tuned to this thread for pics...


And here she is! Quite a beauty huh?

I'm guessing whatever it is won't arrive on a Sunday, but is this a new BIKE? After what's now known by those who witnessed it as "The Ergomo Incident?"

First BD has all of BF wringing their hands over his pending marriage detonating over a friggin Power Meter, then he goes out and implies that he has a whole new bicycle.

You ARE totally inscutible BD. I like it.
