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

I live in your area...what Spec. dealer did you use to get it?

I know a couple of local people who went to Endeavor Performance in Nashville to get their bike fitted to them after they popped for an expensive race bike. http://www.endeavorperformance.com/i...icycle-fitting

I think that bike you have is nice enough to make the trip. My bet is that you will walk out of there very satisfied.
An even better idea would be, to get fit BEFORE, buying the bike ...

Nothing - it was just a convenient white wall to shoot against.

At retail it's north on $15,000, but still not hot.. I have one, different color, different wheels, etc largely more of a dream list item for me than something my abilities are worthy of.. Dont know a sponsored racer with that much stack, but I'm sure only you can be the judge if he is quick or not... (no pun intended)

I know I'm breaking a few rules with this one but I didnt have much time for a shot, and it needs judgement.Premium+fork on the way that may be painted to match, havent decided yet.

I'm sure the BH is a great bike, and I like a bit of blue, but that color scheme is not to my taste. It is set up well, but the brake track wear on the front makes me wonder why one would even bother getting any black anodized rims...

I am going with hot. As far as the blue. I give it bonus points because it is not black and red. Although I think I would like it better if the blue was darker, it looks almost like the aqua that was popular for cars in the early 90's but that could be lighting.

I'm skinny and I'm fast, maybe I'll get a free bike (that's a pretty funny statement in itself)

So many times I've heard guys talk the talk but can't walk the walk. Everyone thinks they are fast until they ride with someone who truly is...

Depends on if I dial up my guads to 400w or not...
I did see a number higher than 400 watts once though so I must be fast...
