And FAST!! Warmed myself up by removing all the extra stickers and goo off the bike and frame. As an extra bonus, when I went to pick it up, they had it's twin on sale for $350 more off!! Needless to say, I now have the extra cash to order some new wheels.

Heading south tomorrow, should be a lot nicer for riding.

As smooth as those stock shimanos wheels are, you will feel the biggest performance difference in a wheelset change. Lots of good options out there at the $5xx mark, either factory or full customs (best route)

Glad they priced match their stock, good LBS to go back too!!
