    My new bike-Look....

    KG-381. I just picked it up from its previous owner. I was pretty excited about it on my way to check it out, but once I laid my eye's on it I was jumping up and down like a little kid at the carnival. Its looks way better in person then the pics. I picked up some Mavic SL's yesterday, so all I need is a groupo tires and a seat. Ill post some pics when I get home. Oh yes, and true Look tradition, its very light.

    Oh, and I am cleared to start riding. Only 20 minutes first ride, then 40 minutes on wed, by friday I can be up to an hour. Nothing too exciting, just flat mellow pedaling.

    Are those Doctor Times? If so, the coefficient to convert to real time is about 5. So, first ride, 100 minutes. Yeah, baby.....

    Yes it is, and it should look great with the silver mavics. Im hoping it'll come in around 15.5 lbs.

    Hey Sean,
    Aren't you missing something ... like wheels and pedals? That sure looks like a very comfortable saddle
    I'm in it to finish it.
