    gsteinb, I think the bulk of the price difference is the special "McLaren Team Orange" paint accents. Our SoCal crit meister has one. I'll ask him when I see his next week.

    caloso, generally you want a TT bike on the smaller side so that you can get as low as possible. At the same time, depending on your personal body geometry, cockpit length can be more important -- as is my case.
    Thanks.

    And my case, apparently. Small is good, but 50CM 650C is TOO small, even for little me.

    Funny, I've never been accused of being a shill before. Of course there's always a first time and if the shoe fits...
    Thanks.

    I was, but I was too moderate. According to the list it's a bunch of people who, other than Walter and G, haven't ever set foot here. So they are getting credit for doing nothing. We need to start a ruckus. Make them earn their $10 Amazon gift certificates.

    I'm just saying there's something on the horizon that's going to drive the UCI bat**** and strike fear into Sand Diego TT crowd.

    Wow. You have some kind of patience! I'd be going bonkers.

    Nah... just wanted to get out riding... the other is sitting here on the piano waiting to be installed.

    Better picture: image.jpg

    First ride is in the books - I haven't been on a bike like this, well, ever. Lots to get used to, but some guy took off from a stop light and I went after him, and there we were at 31+... oh my. Taking it out on Saturday for a century, goal is sub 5 hours.

    Esteban, that's pretty sweet! A top drawer bike is quite the experience, isn't it? Good luck on the century this weekend! I'll be watching for you on Strava.

    Yep - I'm still in 'get some amount of fitness then think about what's next' mode, and that has mean a lot of climbs and organized rides - I hope to graduate to something a bit smaller soon (my sense is I'm close, but lacking some confidence), but for now I went with the mid cage RD and 12-32 which gives me a pretty low bail out gear.

    That CAAD 10.3 makes a GREAT crit bike, I found out today! By the way - Shovel - I removed the decals from the Corimas and the bike looks a million percent better when those wheels are on it.
