    The Great Lakes Subforum is not worthy of this photo.

    Please move it to Southern California or something like that.




    Dang, that thing is sweet.

    I'm pretty ignorant on this geometry stuff, but I notice that there is not much drop from seat to bars. Is this your actual setup? I'm an old guy with his bars about level with his seat, but I thought that racier bikes usually had much more drop.

    Thanks guys, got about 20 miles yesterday and still fitting it. My usual 50 mile club ride Saturday morning should be a good shakedown.

    Very nice. For me, I love those chainrings, the bevel is very elegant.

    That thing looks like its going nearly 30MPH just sitting still. Very sweet ride.
    and the road becomes my bride
    I have stripped of all but pride
    So in her I do confide
    And she keeps me satisfied
    Gives me all I need
