    Newbie from Kentucky

    Hello I am new to the cycling world, had my bike about a month. Been cold, and have only got to put about 150 miles on my bike. I also have a mountain bike, and love them both. Getting used to cleats, clipping, and unclipping is maybe the hardest thing I am dealing with. anyways here is my bike after I put my carbon wheels and tubular tires on it..

    In America things move fast I guess? Having trouble clipping in but no trouble in the decision to invest in carbon wheels and tubulars? Best of luck, guy.

    No trouble clipping in, but remembering to unclip is a different story... My carbon wheels and tubulars came in at 500.00, which I almost paid for by selling the wheels that came on my bike They also shaved a pound(.453kg) of turning weight...

    The forecast looks great! I'll be on a yellow recumbent, unless I change my mind at the last minute and ride my Lemond.

    We are riding with the BCC, and I will be riding my Specialized Tarmac. Just made some upgrades, and got it into the 14lb range.. So glad the weather looking good..
