    New Bike Pics

    Everyone loves bike pics and since there is way too much snow to ride around here... I rode around the block a few times, it seems nice but I'm jonesing for a real ride.

    You would get better aerodynamics if you wrapped your chainstay from back to front.

    Other than that, looks good, enjoy!

    Ha ha. Gastro is a funny dude, I laughed too, but mostly cause the brakes don't seem to be working right. So it hit home. Thanks for the good comments guys. Now, snow go away please.

    Lack of power. I trimmed the rear brake hose and gave it a quick bleed according the user's manual. Which said to hold the lever up with the bleed screw vertical and I sucked out some air bubbles and thought I was good to go. I didn't shorten the front. I was going bed the brakes in on a long big hill in town but I don't think they will stop me.

    I think I'm going to bleed them again first. Anyone here have experience with Formula Mega brakes? I'm guessing you bleed them with two syringes pushing the fluid from one syring to the other?

    Very nice. Curious about BB height - - ground clearance looks nice and generous.

    I did a quick measurement and with me off the bike and the fork maxxed out @ 180 mm it was 15 strong. I know the trend is now lower BB heights but this suits my riding style better.

    If you've got it set-up real plush, it'll come down quite a bit by the time you're on it anyway.

    Very nice!

    I almost feel sorry for you... married, but no honeymoon till spring...
