It's all I had in the garage and I wanted to take it for a test ride!)
    Sweet build... hope it rides out as nice as it looks.

    Now that it's spring, it feels great having the Nokian W106s off in favor of high pressure slicks

    It gets me over the bridge to and from work rather nicely. That's about all I usually ask of it. I did ride the NY Century with it last fall, though. It didn't complain.

    I'm in love with your bike and hope my wife doesn't read this... Wish I had kept my Marathon though, too bad yours had to go too.

    Nice! Thanks for sharing.
    Enjoy the ride.

    New budget bike for fitness, up coming charity ride, and probably some commuting too. It's a 2009 "Schwinn Fastback" I picked it up on Amazon Warehouse for $160 less then the regular price because it was an open box. It's a mix of some ok components (Sora RD & STI levers, FSA Tempo crankset, Alex R500 rims, FSA Intellaset headset), and some underwhelming Schwinn branded components.

    It's also going to be my first foray into clipless off the spin bike.

    Indeed, though with significant modifications. Brand is covered up because I am not necessarily proud of riding a Performance brand bicycle, but also that I think the less eye-catching a bicycle is, even if it's not a premium brand, the less likely it is to be targeted for theft.

    How do you guys like those springy Brooks saddles? And how does the ride compare to the non-springed versions?

    Well, I've never ridden a Brooks B17 (the same as this saddle minus the springs), so I can't speak from experience, though it certainly does have more give than my last saddle, and E3. My rationale was "why not." Bicycles used to be spec'd with this sort of saddle but it's out of fashion now. Also this is my definitive bicycle, and I use it for commuting, hauling groceries with my trailer, and touring also. If I wasn't planning on ever using it for trips longer than 10 miles, I would have just gone with the B17.
