MY NEW BIKE - It's a perfect fit!!!!

MY SEARCH IS OVER!!! Not only is it bling-olicious, but its Pose Factor is off the charts.


Granted, it doesn't go very fast. In fact, it doesn't really go anywhere at all... but I can get very aero on it - and still hold onto my beverage. Eat your heart out, Dan.

Love the Slipstream kit. The bike just isn't for me.

Major poser points... but severe deduction for white before Memorial Day!

Those are your PAM pics!!! You could have won with those. But now if you post them in PAM, you're disqualified.

It's the wheels, huh? Just imagine it with Zipps... it will go great with the frame. Trust me.

How do those full discs handle in the wind?

FYI, your race number is on the wrong side.

Yea, Sheldon. It's the newest thing. Carbon, boron and wood. Laterally stiff, vertically compliant, yet biodegradable.

They were great! I think, if I put on the gas, I could have caught and dropped that 3-year-old with the jelly-splattered jumper. The wheels are that good.

They take the win photos from the front, d00d.

Yes. They just look small because I'm retaining water.

Thanks! I like the SS kit, it's quite comfortable, even though it has a men's chamois. Makes me feel fast. My Assos stuff is mainly for cold weather -- it was much too nice today for fleece!

I love the mono-shock design, should be very comfortable for the long rides. I see you have a spare set of wheels in the background, nice.

I too have recently gotten a new bike, though its got a motor in it. I know I haven't been on too many group rides lately but its only because I'm enjoying the new bike more, even though it really makes my nuts hurt.

Joy, I think you and I should ride together one of these days. Just you and me hun.
