    Woo Hoo New TOY !

    Stopped by Performance today to buy some tubes. Came home with this.....

    Ultegra SL, added FSA Carbon Compact cranks. FAST & LITE. Great deal too.


    I'm going to spend a few weeks on it & then decide if I want to sell my Litespeed Tuscany or keep it too

    Bl**dy expensive tubes. Just don't start asking about wheels next time you go shopping

    Have to admit that it has been known for a new bike to follow me home aswell.

    you would get rid of a Ti bike in favor of a CF-framed bike?

    It is a 57cm or 58cm? Then you must sell it to me.

    Oh Yeah. The Tuscany is a GREAT bike. I really love it. Very nice on long rides & pretty quick handling, but.......

    The SL1 is unbelievably quick handling. A great sprinter. Most of my rides now are 35-45 miles. The SL1 is great in the pack for jumps & breaks. It's not as comfortable on big bumps, but on rough road it's close to the Ti bike.

    The SL1 handles a lot like my Cannodale 3.0 Crit bike. (1993 immaculate & upgraded to Ultegra 9spd STI) A fast fun bike, but not too nice on rough roads.

    i will probably keep the Litespeed to, but I have way too many bikes around here right now. (road, mountain, recumbent...)
