But hey teammate!
Yeah I definitely haven't been pulling my weight - rough season with a knee injury.

But Abdalah is whipping me into shape, so see at the Giro!

I picked up my charcoal Ristretto off the Paceline Forum classifieds - a perfect fit and a great bike. The workmanship on the frame is very impressive. I've raced it 5 times, got 2nd in a TT, 2nd in a road race, and 2nd in a crit (and 2nd in the omnium as well) in the first week I rode it.

The red one (also metallic) I grabbed from eBay. Same geo except the charcoal one has a 20mm headtube extension (to make it roughly the same geo as a 56 CAAD12), hence the spacers under the stem on the red one.

The plan is for the charcoal twin to be the training/road race rig, and the red one the flatter crit bike (the single 52 ring should be the giveaway).

So far, I really love these rigs. With 5 wheelsets between them to swap around, I have a lot of flexibility for setup next year!
