Even pretty than I thought and rides like a dream. Didn't have time to go very far, but I've got about 2 hours or so staked out to ride tomorrow.

Beautiful bike. :love:

Quick question? How much do you weight? If you are 250 or over, I might consider replacing that carbon seat post.

You call your bike a "lady?" That's just weird....

Tom Stormcrowe 10-28-07 06:46 PM

My bikes are "The Other Women", according to my wife ;) All my bikes are female personalities as well ;) Not weird at all! It's like a boat :D

240 and falling so I'm not worried about it at all. When I rode this afternoon the wheels seemed a little soft, but not really in a bad way, think it was more the change from my bomb-proof 36spoke 24mmdyad-ultegra wheels to something with a little more spring.

Already Gone except for the one under my dealers sticker.

Well said Tom. Not sure what to name her yet and I don't quite have the personality figured out, but like all good ladies I'm sure that will come out in time.

The first ride was wonderful, I got a little cold at the end which slowed me down a little, was the fastest two hours I've ever done alone and I was at a lower exertion level according to my HRM even then, no Photos unfortunately as I forgot my camera. And like a good lady, I can't wait to spend more time with her.

I have a suggestion.........Mariah

Remember the song from Paint Your Wagon?
"They call the wind Mariah"
