Ya know, taking the 25 degree stock Crowbar off of it and having to put the straight bar on so the aerobars would fit; I kinda miss the 25 degree rise believe it or not, for regular riding I think.

I'm thinking I llke the Aerobars for the trainers.

Ya know, when I started thinking I was going to spend some money on a bike I thought I wanted a road bike. An Allez. Went down to the LBS and road and Allez. I hated it. Felt like my guts were getting squished all together. Then I rode the FX. Completely different. I liked it and I still do. Now put the Aerobars on the FX = position on the Allez I hated.

But....I ride those aerobars on the trainer whether I like them or not. Gut squishing a big plus !

Find an electrical shock sytem. When your knees hit the gut, a little shock. Could be a bit of motivation to lose some tummy!

If you find one. let me know. I'll borrow it when you're done!

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Yeah, I told you you'd either love or hate the Allez. It's a screamer though if you do love it......

That's exactly why I told you to take one for afew miles worth of ride.
