Pcad pulls the trigger

Again.







$2250 shipped on eBay. Cdale crankset, D.A. shifters, nice carbon clip ons,
Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheels (I'll be putting my Zipps on), semi-cheesy Cdale
CF brakeset. I'm not worried about stopping on this bike, and my Zipp 404's
will go on the bike. Anybody want to buy a nice set of Ksyrium Elites?

Test rode the same bike at the LBS today. Equivalent deal there for a new bike
would have been closer to $4K with tax. The 54cm TT bike fit me great and felt like
a TT version of my Six13 (because that's what it is). PERFECT.

Ebay RULES.

Score!

TT seems inevitable but I'll never get a 613 past the finance department.

Sorry to disappoint. Pcad does not own a firearm. But if I did off myself you'd all be so friggin bored.

I take back everything I said about not crashing on a TT bike. I rode one 3 miles today, I'm not sure how I survived the experience. That's going to take a lot of bike time before I'm comfortable with that. I kept trying to shift gears with my brake levers : ).

It took me about a week to get to non-weaving status. Now I'm AOK but I still wince when I have to change directions quickly.

I'm a little disappointed, though, Pcaddy, I figured you were going to get that P2C...

Upon further review and comparison the P2C seemed pretty cheesy compared to the Cdale Slice. But 'Cervelo' sounds more exotic, even though it's a bicycle from friggin Canada, like Celene Dion and DocRay. Cannondale is from Pennsylvania like Floyd Landis.

That means the Cdale will make me TT like Floyd, right?

This is the twisted, sick, self-inflicted bike weenie logic that sells pricey bike schwag.

I was trying to actually steer the bike, hence my hesitancy to be out on the Daredevil Bars. I'll get used to it. Every time I did it I felt like I was flying blind-folded. I was on a fairly busy road too.

Yes, of course I will be posting pics. What the F. This is Pcad here. I live to regail you with my bike schwag conquests.

OK, technically I'm from NJ, but I digress. Honestly, though, it is factoring into my decision of my next bike to buy.

Besides, this is a family website and a full disclosure of what Mrs. Pcad 'gets in exchange' would shock all concerned.

Well, OK, not Botto. But the rest of you.

I will forward your complaint to the CEO of eBay. Actually the Cdale cranks are lighter/more rigid than D.A. from all reports.

Not for nothing, but why aren't you busting my balls over those cheesy pseudo-CF Cdale brakes?
