Well guys and girls,
I finally pulled the trigger. I traded in my 2005 Cannondale CAAD9 R5 last weekend for a 2012 Bacchetta Corsa. I absolutely LOVE IT! Hoping to get some pics soon and post them, but I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all the folks here in the forum. I've read so much and gleaned a wealth of information from the folks here. I can't wait to really get her out on the open road and show her around to my favorite rides and friends, and I hope to repay the information I took from this forum in the future.
One question to you guys - can anyone point me in the direction of aftermarket parts websites for these incredible machines? I'm looking right now for replacements for the pins that keep the back supports up and maybe a new idler pulley, plus I kind of just want to see what's out there. LBS said it was a fine stock pulley but an aftermarket one at some point would probably be smart at some point. More importantly, I guess, he told me to make sure it was tightened properly before each ride!
Thanks in advance, fellow 'Bent riders!! I'll proudly represent the 'Bent family and help to dispell the myths surrounding these awesome machines...
