Hoping to be able to flip the stem in a month or two... I'm still as green as my bike!

Crash has a pretty nice BH.
What are you riding now?
is this now..
Minor improvments to the stable via the unique world that is CL... worked a great deal on a NOS 2009 808/1080 clincher set. Yeah, got some funky custom stickers but, since I essentially got the rear 1080 for fee, who cares. New standard white stickers are a cheap, easy remedy.
Anyway, I went out on with the P2 out for a quick 25 mile test ride this morning and OMG they are soo sweet. Rrrr, Rrrrr, whoosh whoosh. They way they carry momentum and speed is intoxicating.
So after this mornings ride, I removed my 08 ZedTech build 404s on my R3 to install new stickers and clean the cassette today so swapped over the 09 404 Max set that was on my P2.

Moot point now, I was struck by an suv yesterday on my first 20mi ride about 1/4 of a mile from home. Bike is destroyed, threw me across 2 lanes landing in the center turning lane. Incredibly, no broken bones... very banged up, mild concussion, and in pain, but I'll be ok thankfully.
Funny thing, I always thought riding a LIME GREEN bike would help me be seen a little easier. Apparently not!

Damn. sbxx1985 must have cursed that bike when he said that. Or the SUV driver reads this forum and decided to take justice into his own hands.
Don't forget to get to a doctor, even if you don't think you need to just yet. You never know, plus insurance will cover it.
The lime green bike obviously brought you bad luck! Try a more common color scheme next time! LOL..jk
Indeed! And I shall, making appts with my primary care as well as an orthopedic dr. Have to make sure.
LOL! Indeed, guess this is one way of changing bike colors (though probably not the optimal way!) Hmm... wonder if Trek's lifetime crash warranty on the Madone's would apply?? I'm thinking not... ;-)
wow...and i just last week bought a lime green windbreaker to be my visibility-cloak!
