She is Now A Dura Ace Chick

I like the way bikes evolve, not to mention I just like posting pics ha ha!

Well Gina was first on full carbon and now on Dura Ace wheels. She's always one step ahead of me!



First a Bontrager Race Lite set





Then a Dura Ace Deep V up front but still Bonti up front





Now both Dura Ace.....need the ride pic!



The new DA wheel. Handbuilt by my Clyde buddy Mark at his shop



Mark of Mark and Dave's Bike shop




Got any evolving bikes, feel free to post them, always fun for a peek!

Great! Now we'll NEVER keep up with her on GMR!

Oh well, looks good. (Bike and wheels don't look half-bad either! )
