Yikes! Looks like a good machine. Be sure to carry a sharp knife to dress any deer (or moose) you kill with it.

Its funny, ive only been riding 6 months or so. I weighed myself this morning after my shower.. its been a few weeks since I weighed in as I had plateaued for a while. and I found I had dropped another 10 pounds..

going from a fat computer dork, who loved every second of his day, having that burger at lunch 4 times a week.. and just sitting in a chair playing with computers day after day..

To now.. an Ex fat, still computer dork, who got rear ended in a car accident.. has severe back pain every moment of every day, who had to make a decision to get better.. Or lose everything.


62 pounds later.. First century 2 weeks ago on my road bike, Solo Unsupported, finished with ease. The pain is there.. but I plan on conquering it. I figured, a little self spoiling was in order with this bike =)


Pcad.. Since your a sucky rider, and im a noob.. want to go riding? lets go climb Mount beacon one weekend or something and take pictures and post them here for awesomeness?

Congrats on the new bike! It looks like the 09 Epic line is going to be a bit different since the cheapest one is $5500.
