Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

New frame pic

Sweetness, I just got my new frame. Now I have something to do because I can't ride this summer. Ordered an Ultegra SL crankset to go on it and then will transfer the rest of the parts from my Superlite.

Please, please, please zip tie one of these on the stem!



Just kidding Be sure to post pictures once it is built, and a ride report. I doubt too many here are familiar with that brand, so you insights will be welcome.

PS - I just saw your comment about not being able to ride this summer. I hope that whatever is holding you back gets resolved quickly. I'd be going crazy having a new frame but being unable to ride it!

Hah, I should totally paint "Ned" in front of one of those logos. Or maybe put "fiddly diddly" on the chainstays or something. I've got a broken kneecap, so I'll be out for a while. I'll find out how long tomorrow morning.
