Got my new ride---finally (Pic)

It took two months to get this shipped---but now it is in my hot little hands. The last Felt F55 in 63cm to be shipped this year. Aluminum/Carbon frame with Dura Ace components. Mavic Aksium wheels. Have only ridden it once for 20 miles---but what a difference compared to my 80's steel frame with downtube friction shifters!! A lot lighter and noticably more responsive. And having a 10 speed on the rear vice a 6 speed made an obvious difference. I'm very pleased so far. Looking forward to a 40 mile group ride in the morning.

Very safety-conscious taillight on a hot bike. Don't usually see that combo. I'm not making fun.

What's that tiny dot on the garage door just above the stem?

Thats from when the wife found out the true cost of the bike. Luckily she missed the bike.

Looks great so with all these new bikes coming in- We expect to see plenty of ride reports with pics in the next few days.
