    my new bike

    By the time you're experienced enough to get something germane out of a test ride, you won't need a test ride.

    That's a nice deal for those bars. I got the Wing pro compact last year which is basically the same bar minus the oval shape on the tops. I paid full MSRP for mine

    is there anyway to dim the brightness of the white? It is hard to see the bike past under the billboard signs.

    I love s/s cages. A little retro, they don't spit out bottles and they're cheap.

    Very nice. The matte black paint is perfect.
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    But if he stops for coffee with the local team, he won't get his bike mixed up

    I shortened the rear cable housing, thanks for pointing that out redlude97. so the polished aluminum stem is growing on me, because almost everyone else has a black one and a precious few have white. The bike is about .5 lb heavier than my pedalforce, so complete it's just at 15lb. the extra weight is in the frame. in particular the chainstays, seattube/isp junction and head tube, which is where i wanted a bit of extra stiffness.

    Gorgeous bike! I might be the odd duck, but I like the silver stem it doesn't really clash with the over all look and it gives the bike a very unique character you often don't see in this subforum.
