My New Bike :)

I'm in love! My new baby finally arrived It's a Seven Alaris custom frame, Ultegra kit, 12/27 cassette, Time ATAC XS pedals, Seven 5E-XL carbon fork, Ksyrium SL wheels, Conti 4-season tires, Cinelli cork tape. For now, I'm using a Terry Fly saddle, but I'm going to try an Arione a friend at work is trying to sell.

My first goal is to ride my age, which is 57.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Ti. I've got, steel, carbon, aluminum and Ti. The Ti is the real deal in my book. Sweet looking ride.
