First real ride on the new bike. Ow my GAWD!!!

Yesterday was the first real ride on my Lynskey R330 Ti bike. All I can say is wow. I picked a route that had lots of chip seal, hills with some flat area mixed in. Also, I am new to Strava, I had a chance to measure myself against other local riders. I'm glad to say the bike is wonderful on chip seal, with a little better wheel/tire combo this should be the proverbial magic carpet ride. As for myself, I held my own on Strava placing mid pack on most segments behind known local racers. I did surprise myself a little on one of the flatter sections, so overall a great ride. I am glad that I went with the 11-28 rear cassette, it worked well for the area. I cant wait to ring this bike out some more.
