I'm sure it's just me but I always find small bicycles that sat Giant on them somewhat funny.

Don't let the cat know you're using its scratching post without its permission.

Nice. I love white bikes but don't tell DG I said it. 14 1/2 pounds? I have helmets heavier than that.

When I saw the thread title I thought you were going to tell us that you gained 14 1/2 pounds during the winter.
Nice looking bike. How much does it weight?

Weren't you just trying to get rid of some bikes not too long ago? Uh-huh...

Well, you know *I* have a Giant bias but that is one fine mo-sheen

Not mine yet but I walked into the LBS to pick up some spares and there was this bike sitting there. The owner has just built it up for himself and he has a couple more coming in next week so I have it on a weeks trial. Bit pricey and I am not 100% certain but taking it for a test this afternoon when the roads are a bit dryer.

Once again it would be a Build on a frame and at the price of just the frame-I might have to strip my current TCR-c or Boreas. It's a TCR Advanced and Boy is that frame light. This is built up with Dure Ace and supposedly set up for Hills. Can't believe it with the gearing on it but I'll find out when the roads dry out.

Would you call the shop owner "fishing" when he loans out a bike like that?
Careful, or he'll reel you in.

No- My LBS is great. He knows when to reel me in though but I am the same size as him so he has loaned me a couple of his own bikes just to see what they are like. Stems from 15 years ago when I had a few computers at work to scrap and I built one up for him. He did not have a computer so I guess someone giving him one for free and he appreciated it.
