    A change in plan.... the different new bike!



    I only wanted to type it all out once, so I put the details on my blog.

    I do have some things I'll still need to work on and a couple things Im worried about but mostly Im super happy to have a great new bike!

    "Plus, because it's new, I have a full warranty from the manufacturer."

    Are you sure? I thought warranties don't transfer. But I could be wrong.

    Nice bike!

    It's a beauty! Congratulations on your sweet deal.

    P.S. Red bikes are faster.

    Good point, Mr. The Historian. I'll check with my Fuji rep (or just send in the never filled out warranty card and hope for the best! )

    Thats great, and it takes some of the sting out of getting yours stolen. Enjoy it! BTW; I agree, RED BIKES ARE FAST!

    The funny part was is that Craigslist had been basically bone dry for the entire week. There were a couple bikes I might have been ok buying, but nothing close to this.

    Incredible opportunity, glad you jumped on it. It will be fun to watch your progress in the next year.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I can't even find my bike when I'm on drugs. -Willie N.

    Ugh, sorry you had your other bike stolen, but it looks like it worked out well in the end.

    It also makes me feel less badly that your post reminded me I have a small box somewhere in the house that never got mailed. I'm really sorry about that, somehow life got in the way of short term memory.......

    No problem! Im glad the part didnt get here before it got stolen and its no longer needed. FD on this bike is Tiagra. Share it with someone who needs it!

    But I do miss the hub you gave me. I doubt these Alex racing wheels will hold up too long and i dont want to risk it for Timberman 70.3

    45 miles on the bike today. First ride of that distance, and I certain about 3 things:

    1. The factory saddle will be replaced shortly. Typical butt hatchet. No cut out, not the right size for my sit bones.
    2. The pedals will be replaced shortly. They have an integrated toe clip, but are pretty small and because of my shoe size, I can only get my toes and the very front of the ball of my foot on the peal due to the clip. 45 miles pedaling with your toes is pretty uncomfy.
    3. Every other part of that bike feels awesome. The frame is light and responsive. The components (now that theyve gotten a professional adjustment) shift and brake smoothly and sharply exactly as you'd expect from a nice enthusiast level bike.
