...to my surprise...

So today I go out for a ride and am somewhat bummed that I can only ride for about six miles....when suddenly as I round a corner I see a sign that says..."New Bike Shop". I turn around, hop off my bike, and enter the shop. The owner was setting things up and introduced himself and his wife. His shop will be carrying Felt, Look, and Bianchi among others. He had a really intriguing bike on display that caught my eye. It was a Bianchi Giro. I think I will give it a test ride tomorrow. Anyone here had any experience with that model?

No, but Felt makes the T23 I think it is...it's a Time Trial bike that you can convert to a road bike by switching the seatpost back and forth. It'd be a rocking way to do that century coming up...
