    Black Beauty....Finally completely set up, well, except for the computer :(

    Well, here she is, more or less road ready for endurance riding.



    I moved the video camera and strapped a light in.





    and the full effect. Once the snow breaks, I'll have the stereotypical garage door photo, with the cranks just so.



    and how well the lighting works



    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Sweet ride

    Please let us know how the eggbeaters go. There've been a few reports of poor bearings and cages breaking under normal use. That said, many people have no problems with theirs.

    Look UNDER the aerobars. I moved it in toward the stem.
    Less wobble that way.

    Thats a real beauty! I love the matching water bottle cage colour and the tyre colour...it's the little touches that distinguishes a master craftsman.

    Let's see some on board videos of your ride. I love seeing rides in USA. You have great open country roads rather than little country lanes here.

    Depends on the way the wheels are laced.

    I know, you are talking about red waterbottles to highlight the black .

    I'm just having a bit of fun .

    I just Today figured out why I bought the New Felt.
    It was waiting in it's nest for me to come by.

    Can't wait to see your bike in June
    BTW, obligatory roadie forum comment: You are cross chaining

    Now the weather needs to get better and you can fully enjoy your new steed.

    Thos aero bars look like they might provide a comfortable perch -- how are you liking them?

    Also curious - why the cording around them - must be a reason, but could only guess it might have something to do with locking them in place for some reason?
