    Ah, I see, the Montreal course winds around a park in the center of the city. I see an opportunity for a picnic along the course, a good bottle of wine, some cheeses, meats, and a couple fresh...

    I'm in town now too and hoping it dries up tomorrow or Friday! Are you talking about 374? It does look good, I was checking it out on GoogleMaps last week. It's busy and mostly flat, but with a nice...

    Any luck finding good rides in Clarksville/Cadiz area? I'm going to be in Clarksville for a couple weeks on biz and I am bringing my steed. 20-40 miles on a good windy county highway WITH paved...

    Yeah, Kristoff has a very bright future. 26 years old, he can sprint, and had a handful of good finishes in the Classics last year? I'm thinking Boonen/Cancellera will have some serious competition...

    Great pics! Are you from Montreal? We have air tickets and hotel reservations in Quebec City and Montreal for this years races (2014). Can you recommend some good spots for watching the race(s)? It...

    No pictures yet, but I bought my USA Cycling license today. Wooo hooo!

    Post Script. What's with USA Cycling putting "racing age" on everything? I really don't need to see that!

    The pics are coming, but they will have to wait until this weekend. Staging is everything and I have to pull the cassette and take off the dork disk!

    Turkey/Cleave: Thanks. I'm am HAPPY:ride: with the EVO. No long hard rides yet, like everywhere else it's been cold here too (I know, I'm becoming a real cold weather Texas wimp), so I've just been...

    Well, my shop is NOT Brittons, it is Bicycle Heaven if anyone is really interested. I've just heard about Britton's from a couple different places. A family friend from Minnesota is a Fredericksburg...

    Ach. I see. Alright, after this thread I'll keep my training/racing questions and updates in here and general road stuff (like what color bidon!) in "41" :thumb: But I do see a core of expertise in...
  12. Yeah, yeah. And we know it's true that cops...

    Yeah, yeah. And we know it's true that cops always stop red cars for speeding, right? The bottomline; Ms Expat thinks my bright and shiny white, green and blue ride is "hot". And at the end of the...

    I really appreciate the recommendation and intend to stop by Joe's soon. Plus, it's enroute to an excellent ride west of town with some serious up and down climbing :). In the end, I'm good with my...

    Okay. I'm a newbie. What is "41"? I've seen it a few times now in the threads. Yeah, I read the VELO review and that was the tipping point for me on the EVO 5. I hear what you're saying re the...

    The shop guy/sales manager sold me. I watched a lot of local crits last year and I'm finding more and more folks that are racing locally. AND, as it turns out, my sales guy is a 20-something local...

    I know the purchase sounds spontaneous, but I've been stalking these boards for awhile and maintaining a spreadsheet of different bikes, components and prices for much longer. Plus, there's 300-400...

    This is a tough crowd! Alright. Alright. A couple things;
  18. Alright, with all due consideration, it's a done...

    Alright, with all due consideration, it's a done deed. A bright new and very shiny EVO 5 is sitting in the garage (it was in the living room most of the day). Thanks all. More later.
  19. Perfect. Just the feedback I needed. Of course,...

    Perfect. Just the feedback I needed. Of course, now I'm thinking the CAAD 10 with Ultegra components makes the best sense. Or maybe go with the EVO as a carbon frame/fork platform and upgrade the...
  20. 2014 Cannondale EVO 5 v. 2014 CAAD10 3 Ultegra v. 2013 Fuji Altamira 2.0 LE

    Hey all! I'm somewhere north of 50 years and entering some local crit and road races this year. I'm two days away from doing some test rides, spending a few "large" on an upgrade, and I need some...

    This thread cracked me up, laugh out loud "cracked me up" while reading in bed late at night. Waking up my wife laughing out loud. In the end, it reminded me of an observation by a Black Hat (kind of...

    San Antonio here. Green Mountain Road, just north of Hwy 1604, is a good workout. Not killer steep, but a good steady even ramp of 200' over a mile. A better workout is the 4 miles of Smithson Valley...

    Gotta give a shout-out to cwater and smashville. I'm back in San Antonio, but had a great time in Little Rock riding the River Trail. Got in 9 20-mile rides in 21 days! Not bad for a business trip....

    Columbia, Missouri? Seriously? I lived in Columbia from 1965 to 1973 and my first road bike was a Manufrance Hirondelle. I loved that bike and put thousands and thousands of miles on it until...

    Found it going West from the Trestle Bridge. Too easy (too easy to find). Good ride. I mapped it on RunningAHEAD and it's about 300' over a mile and a half, but it's only 3.8%. I don't get that. The...
