A few things about me 1) I am a climber (I am 114lbs) so yeah. I was going to get an Emonda SL 6 Pro but now I am thinking twice about it because I won't always be able to ride in hilly races because in Colligate you don't get too many options and honestly weight isn't the biggest deal for me I just want a bike that can climb fairly well as I can climb along side local racers with my Domane ALR.
Are you actually a good climber, or are you just light? Not the same thing.
