    Old and New

    Hi all, been off the bike for 12+ years and after hip replacement I was able to start riding again. I've been feeling like I was getting my legs back and really enjoying riding again so I decided to treat myself to a new bike some 4lbs lighter than my old one.

    My old Waterford Paramount 21.4lbs


    My new Wilier Izorad 17lbs






    What a fun bike to ride and I'm actually 15 seconds faster per loop on a 4 mile loop that I do after work 5 times (so I don't have to go out and fight traffic, seems we have a lot of people around here that only care about getting home as fast as they can).

    Nifty new bike. Enjoy! I wish Garmin would make the Edge 500 in red though. Are those the FSA compact bars? Nice aren't they?

    There is a time to resign oneself
    to old age and infirmity. You first.

    Yeah, red would be better, heck I'd take black. They are the new ones with the shallow drop. pretty nice and I can stay in the drops longer then I used to.

    LOL, I was just trying to be different!!! In hindsight I should have used the garage door, would have been less clutter in the background....
