Joined the Carbon Club Today
 
UPS dropped off my M1 this morning. I can't wait to take this for a ride longer than a loop around the neighborhood tomorrow. The box was a little beat up but as far as I can tell the bike is in perfect shape. CC said this frame should be fine up to 250 and I'm well below that at 215 so I can't wait to race it on tuesday.

Hi, sweet looking ride. I'm switching to carbon, too, but my the new ride hasn't arrived at the LBS yet. I can't wait. Let us know what you think when you stretch her legs out a bit.

Congrats on the new bike. That sale CC is having is just too good to pass up; almost bought one myself but went slightly over my budget on my S2 build.

Looks good, congrats!

Nice looking bike, congratulations. I had to hold my carbon consumption to a fork and a wrapped seat post.

Someday, I'll join the club too. For now I have to be content to drool over pix of awesome bikes like yours.

Wow, what a great looking bike! Have you been whistled at yet?

I didn't know Lightspeed made carbon bikes. I thought they were all titanium.

I actually bought it before the sale, but CC has a price guarantee so they gave me 150 to spend. I got some new pedals and a seat bag which is nice because the bike is a great deal at full price.

The made some a few years ago then returned to titanium then when they were acquired by ABG the started making carbon bikes again and now they only make 2 Ti bikes.
