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?

NICE BIKE, but you need a wider garage door Looks like fun.

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....
