Picking up my first road bike in a few hours..... :D

Went with a 10 Scott Team... can't wait. I also went with look keo classic peals (debating on whether to get the Speedplay lights instead), Shimano RO77 shoes, and still have to get a helmet, shorts, jersey (off line since I'll need a bigger size than they probably carry). After I get it fitted and back home, I'll post some pictures.

Here she is, I think I would have preferred the matted red finish instead of the glossy, but other than that I can't wait to get out there. When they did the fitting, that was my first time using the pedals and shoes... I'm scared, lol... jk... kinda. Anyways, hope we develop a great relationship.

Im on my second set of Keo's and I love them. Don't worry, you'll get used to them. Nice that they had the red ones to fit with your bike.

Very nice bike

As somebody on this foriun so eloquently instructed me when I posted my first bike pic "get rid of the dork disk" - the black plactic thingy on the backwheel. Mine cut off easily with a boxcutter knife.
