My gift to me

Here is is. I did a bit of research, had a set price limit and even went out and found a part-time gig to fund my habit and here's the result. If it weren't so damn windy today I'd be out riding right now as it stands I will probably spend some time with it on the trainer getting used to clipping in and out of the pedals and shifting gears using brifters.

Very nice! Don't worry, you will still experience at least one tipping incident, even with practice :D .

I'm just hoping it isn't in the middle of traffic or something equally embarassing.

Actually, it'll most likely be when you are able to quit thinking about clipping in and out and then forget. Kt will most likely happen when near a large group, as well, or in the middle of a huge ride and 50 or 60 other BFers will see it ;)

By cycling mandate, it will happen in front of your significant other (who will laugh first, then ask if the bike is OK, then ask if you are OK) or some hottie you're trying to impress (who will roll their eyes, check your bike for damage, then ride off.)

+1000 I tried my best to get used to them, just last Sunday I pulled up to stop, unclipped on the left and the bike and myself went right. The grass didnt look like it would hurt much, until I saw that big ole tree branch.....RIGHT ACROSS THE SHIN! Oh well, I was warned it would happen.

I don't know but thats one shinny trash can isn't it. If we could get a picture with out the bike in the way it would be easier to tell.

On a serious note. That is a beautiful new ride.

Aluminum, I wish it didn't have the red and black bits but I'll live.

The washer is mine...the dryer is not (mine is on the right side of the pic frame).
