Well, needless to say I am new here.. I've been riding non-compettively for a good three or four years, the first somewhat decent ride I remember doing was when I was six, I did the LA Bike Tour, nothing crazy but I was six and I did it on a bike that is no higher then my knees now. I just recently bought myself my first new road bike, the Cervélo S2 with the Dura-Ace Di-2s, a set of Zipp 404 Firecrests, FSA K-Force Carbon bars & Stem, Bontranger inForm RXL 128 saddle, some Look Keo Carbon Blade pedals and a nice little Garmin Edge 800 top it all off. I've also got a Bianchi Super Pista with a Mavic Cosmic Carbon SL on the front and soon to have a Zipp 1080 Clincher on the back with a Phil Wood low-flange hub (currently running a Velocity Deep-V with an Origin 8 hub) I mostly just use the Super Pista for casual riding and all that 'cool' fixie stuff, but I do plan on taking her out to do some nice velodrome riding when I get a chance.. oh and I'm running a 48/17 and a 48/15 gear ratio. Oh and in case you are wondering, the only reason I can afford all of this is simply because I happen to be quite good with repairing cameras and such, so as a form of income I buy broken equipment and sell it for a profit. Anyways... I look forward to being a member of this forum and whatnot.
