    Carpe Diem

    The bike is everything I wanted. I recently put my Ksyrium road wheelset with some nice wide Continental tires on and a white brothers suspension seatpost. I hit some nice mtb trails for about 3 hours on Thanksgiving. The ride with the softride stem and seat post is just like a full suspension bike but without much energy being lost. If I didn't have the bolt on suspension this bike wouldn't get much use. I just don't enjoy getting beat up. On a fully rigid bike my lower back craps out after about 30 minutes. But thats just me.
    If I race this bike I'll simply pump up the pressure in the post or switch it out for my carbon seatpost and I'll lock out the stem the best I can by tightening the spring tension and tightening the linkage bolts (which softride recomends)
    How do you attach a picture to these forums???

    Congrats on your new bike!

    The CD is an incredibly versatile frame. It sounds like yours and mine couldn't be more different -- mine's a touring/commuting setup, rigid with a steel fork, no suspension, rack and fenders, touring wheels, etc. -- but it's still the same frame. I've seen CD's set up with flat bars as cross-country bikes, and I've seen them stripped down and used as pure road bikes.
