    Getting a New bike today!!!!

    My LBS opens the doors at 10am today and I will be there to get a new bike. I am looking at a few diffrent ones and they are all much diffrent bikes in comparison. I am looking at the Cervelo RS, Cervelo S2 and Specialized Tarmac SL2. Both Cervelos have full Rival and the Tarmac has full Ultegra. I know these are all toatlly different bikes so I plan on getting on each one to see how they feel. I feel I will end up with the RS because it offers a much more upright position where as the other to are more of an aggressive racing position. Stay tuned to see what I get!

    That's what the waiting room was invented for

    The Tarmac and the S2 were just too race oriented for my riding style. I really liked the more upright positioning offered by the RS. Also, the RS was a very smooth ride! Felt like a cloud! Oh and the SRAM components felt light years ahead of the Ultegra on the Tarmac.

    I took it for a quick 10 mile shake down ride. The wind was 20 from the north and brutal but the ride was great. The bike performs excellent. I was having a little trouble my speed plays and had to adjust them when I got home. They kept disengaging. Also I don't really care for the seat that came on it so i put my specialized toupe on it so I will see how it goes. Hopefully the wind wont be too bad tomorrow so I can put a few more miles on my new baby! It's a he'll of a big improvement from my cheap Bikes Direct Motobecane Vent Noir starter bike. The Motobecane weighed in at 28 lbs when in ridding configuration and the Cervélo weighs in at about 18 in ride config. I am very happy with the purchase and wish I would have done it a long time ago. Cheers!

    Interesting that you thought the rival worked better than Ultegra. I switched over to SRAM about 2 years ago (mostly force) and I love the rear shifting, still not convinced about the front. It took me a few months to stop downshifting when I meant to upshift, it's a little bit of muscle reprogramming in there.

    That is a DAMN sharp looking bike. Congratulations! What size frame did you get?

    I ended up with a 56. For some reason to me the SRAM just feels really light and much more ergonomic than the shimano components. Thanks for the compliments!

    Looks very nice... I normally prefer black but that one looks awesome in white and red.
