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

They don't have any sitting in inventory (at least not in my size), so not sure there will be end of season sales on the frameset.

That's the gamble since it seems like pretty much every manufacturer underproduced this year...what size did you get?

Fizik R3s... Curious to see how long the heel rubber holds up. Disappointed that they aren't replaceable, but the shoe is so very comfortable for my foot.

The grandkids are going to have a blast. We've a wonderful paved trail 1/4 mile away, the hardware store is 1.5 miles, grocery store is 8 blocks, and minute mart chips & beer are like 4 blocks away. Golf course is 4 miles...just need a bag holder! I picked it up very reasonable $ as an in-box never opened sitting-in-the-garage. Of course...storage will be a slight head scratcher for my *cough, cough, ahem* space challenged garage.

Pair of matte finished uni-directional carbon bottle cages for $12 shipped arrived today. Big smiles, the new bike is now complete. One for water, one for extra crap that don't fit in my saddle bag.

This is a stock photo, but this is exactly the bike I picked up yesterday at PB. Got a SMOKIN' deal. Did 30 miles on it yesterday. Love it!

That is... I love it after I remembered to flip the release on the front brake back in place. Before that I was wondering why the front brake lever pull was so bad. lol
