My newly built Argon 18 Helium. This was its second voyage (first was the Halloween Hamilton ride).

Nice Moto! How is that bike on the trails, and what is your general impression so far?

Cheers!

Finally deed to take a picture to post. This is as I ride it; there are still a few changes I need to make. For one, I need to learn how to wrap bars.

Here it is, the Merlin Extralight that I actually got from another member here.

I love white. *shrug* Mud/dirt casing will look the same on white as it does on black.

Didn't the American Classic wheels give you troubles last year on the Pin?

Thanks Ahpook. Those are my "old" (4 y.o.) AC-420s. The ones I bent were slightly newer and had the Powertap built into the rear rim.

Plowed right into a curb bulb-out at 7am this morning. Words to the wise: wear your helmet and don't fiddle with your computer pickup while riding through town.

I'm sorry for your loss.

You're okay, right?

Yes, thanks. Bruised shoulder (which reminds me: time for more ibuprofen) and a little road rash. The scars will be emotional, not physical.

Posted this on the main Road Cycling forum, but here goes again anyway

2010 Specialized Tarmac Expert SL Double (is going to make climbing *real* interesting . . . ) 54cm. As my first CF bike, is beautiful, rides so nicely, steers wonderfully, and flies from the stop. Am still to this very day scared to ride it because of all the white bar tape/saddle for cleaning, haha. And yes I am aware that my tires are on backwards, I fixed that post-photo shoot
