Well, i got my first Road bike.
Blue competition cycle RC8
after a lot of research and advice from my LBS i went with this bike.
Now, i've searched before and i've read people swearing off and by carbon frames for clydes.
I want to help the community by posting my experiences with the components i have and updating frequently on any problems i have.
Hopefully this might put to rest some concerns that people have when they look for a bike.
here we go
I'm 29 yrs old
current weight 276 (was 320 6months ago)
now onto the bike
Blue competition RC8 frame large
Sram Rival Groupset
Mavic Ksyrium equipe wheels with continental gator skin tires at 25c
aerus composites carbon handlebar with cateye v3
aerus composites alloy seat post with fizik arione wing saddle
speedplay frogs (will upgrade later when i get real road shoes)
now some more pics
So far i've had the bike 3 days and have put in about 30miles
Still needs a couple of adjustments but the bike is comfortable and fast!!!
Now i hope to update this thread often and let everyone know how these components handle my weight.
and hopefully i will be dropping the weight as time goes on.
