    Sweet!

    Buying my first road bike this Saturday. Graduating from an 07 TREK 7.3fx to a Specialized Allez Elite.

    I think I'm getting a good deal on the bike. It's the white one.

    There's a new roadie in town. Note to mothers: lock your daughters up at night! j/k

    Other distinguishing marks? Jersey to be worn? Roads normally travelled?

    I decided on this instead of the Allez Elite. I'm happy.

    Normal routes; wherever the path is paved and dry.

    No, seriously...I live in Sammamish so I normally just ride around Redmond, Kirkland and Bellevue.

    Just so you know..."Hand Made In USA" is only half the story. It should say, "Hand Made In USA, of Global Components." But then the lettering would have to be much smaller and it wouldn't look as cool.

    Nothing like being coordinated!

    Umm, Headwaters Century coming up soon. I'll see if I can't encourage someone to take photos .

    Edit: Is this coordinated, or what?



    It was a great ride, though .

    everybody is looking good! awesome bike, eff! congrats. (i just bought a new ride last weekend.)

    and who cares about global components... geez.... a guy gets excited about a new ride and somebody has to pull a bike snob tood! dang! how rude. it has two wheels. it looks sharp as can be! and i suspect the owner is very proud, as he should be!

    the road does not know the bike that travels it.... the bike does not know... the wind does not... and the smile of the rider does not care.
    Be in this moment.
    Do not seek the truth. Accept it.

    You have got that right! I don't think there's a single photo of me with my bikes where I do not have a big smile on my face .
