Ha, it sounds like a good reason to get into mid season form. I remember last year over hearing some Lexus driving lady saying you couldn't buy a decent bike for under three grand. What a crock. I ride a Klein Quantum and the fit and finish on that bike is top notch, IMHO. It cost me about half of her minimum brand new and I can smoke her Seven with it. Perhaps after riding the Le Tour for awhile, I'll be able to do the same on it. It still needs a little tweaking yet, but its close.
