    Year round commuter finally throws down...

    I'm so excited! I finally got myself a road bike. I commute year round on a rougher/tougher bike with the whole nine yards.(fenders, racks, lights, computer, etc.) Through that I decided to start triathlon training but longer than an hour on my commuter got to be a little uncomfortable. So...

    After much research into affordable road bikes I got myself a Scattante R550. Performance was having a sale so I got it with full shimano 105 for $599!! I threw a light and computer on there so that I could use my commute on dry, warm days and add some miles on the way home for traininng.

    She looks fast but I haven't had the chance to ride her a long distance yet. Just wanted to share with you guys because others in my life don't quite understand the pure joy this brings me!!

    Congratulations. I hope to get a true road bike within the next year and have been curious about Scattante. Please let us know what you think.
