I've sipped from the Bike-Schwag kool-aid...

...and it is good.

I have a new bike.

Carbon Fibre + Dura-Ace > Aluminium + 105

I'm officially ready for the 2008 season.

Pics to follow.

I gotta say that after looking at pictures of it, the shifter position just looks odd. But when I'm on the bike everything feels good, although I haven't put any real miles on the bike. Tomorrow I'll know if I botched the cockpit set-up.

I just have this feeling that I'll be moving the shifters higher on the bars.
