    Merry Christmas To Me!!!

    I picked up my Christmas present tonight. It’s an 08 Specialized Tarmac Expert Ultegra. I love it. I hope to get some better pics outside when it's light. Time to go remove some excess stickers and reflectors.

    58 (XL). I've mostly been testing 60's, but the 58 in the Specialized seemed to fit better.

    'Tween me and thee, I think you'll love that bike I have to admit though to being strongly biased in favor of Specialized.

    That is indeed a sweeet looking ride. I'm sure the two of you will spend many great hours together.

    Oh by the way, I think they forgot to install the peddles
    Uphill or downhill; headwind or tailwind; Pavement or Dirt ... it's all good.

    Definitely nice, seems one of these days I will give one of them a try. Since I been riding it has always been Mountain Bikes, I always wondered how it would be to ride a road bike. I ride a 21 inch Giant Rincon now. Rides well enough but it is heavy. I enjoy it nonetheless. You expect to take that on tours also or just round the town and rides?
    When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

    Mostly around town, but I have signed up for the 2008 Tour de Cure already, which is one fo the reason I was anxious to get it quick. That is in March around here, and I want to do the century ride.

    I'm also planning in the MS 150 this year as well.

    I know that Tarmac is gong to be a fast ride, but you might have a little difficulty going back 2 years in time.

    DOH! Fixed. Now you have to admit. That certainly made you smile though.
