    Through LBS. Picked up on Saturday! Supposedly it was the last one Bacchetta had in stock.
    Here it is in completely stock form.
    Have yet to get in a ride other than literally around the block.
    Just last night I added a zefal spy mirror and a black brain box with bladder.

    What changes do you have in mind?

    I changed tires and added a second mirror. That second mirror helps during brevets which are my main focus. For longer brevets, I use a dynohub-equipped front wheel and lights. I also added the ADEM water-bottle holders. I have a rear Bacchetta seat bag and I have a set of Radical Designs low panniers on the way - again for long brevets.
    Cheers, Gerry

    This is my re-intro into bents so for now I'm just gonna ride and feel it out for a bit.
    I assume I'll probably look into some tires eventually, something more flat preventive. Maybe the adem headrest.
    The plan is weekend club riding and charity rides.
    Eventually I'll get my speedplay pedals on there.

    Very cool. I found the Adem wasn't necessary. Tires...knock on wood but I've had great luck with Conti GP4000's. Two brevets, one century & no flats....knock on wood.

    My Slipstream is blue and feels fast. My 350Z is also blue (Daytona Blue) and is rocket-sled fast.
