Oh yeah I have a story Rafael about mine and it happened just about a month ago. But first off, congrats Bacco, they really are good bikes and people just don't appreciate or understand what they are capable of with them, till they try them....Keep up with the centuries, I certianly plan to with mine!(by the way I have a BF new world tourist geared for climbing)
Now my story, I was doing CFC in ohio back at the begining of october, it's a ride I always do each year and has a LOT of climbing in it, (this year I was told it had 6,000 feet of climbing in the first day's century and 7,000 feet of it on the second day's century). So I started out the day with my club's usual gang that comes to it, and they all ride 700c wheel bikes, they were certain that they would drop me on the decents and just ride away from me, especially the tandem that I was going with. Well that never happened, in fact my partner (who was on a regular sized bike) and I finished 30minutes ahead of that tandem at day's end, and the next day at the end of the day we put an hour into that tandem!...I rode past a gang of other riders at the start of the day on saturday and they just laughed at me and said some snyd remark implying that I wouldn't be able to do it or that I was crazy to do it on that bike, but I never saw them the rest of the day and after about the first 10 miles into the ride, absoutley nobody said anything else to me, I think they were just amazed at how it could perform!.
It was all a test for me to see how it would go in the hills cause I want to take it out to colorado next summer for the triple bypass ride, and I'm going to do that now because that bike did soo well for me, I was really pleased!!
