New Guru Chron'alu

I must say that even after a 100 miles on it, I can assure you that it is much faster and more comfortable than my trek 1500 and it sure does look good too. I got a custom frame and paint, and had it fitted and out the door in 2 and 1/2 weeks. Guru, and my LBS get a big thumbs up on the whole deal.

All Guru's are custom in paint and sizing from now on, no extra charge if I'm not mistaken.

That's what I anticipated: 1 to 1.5 mph increase.
