My New Ride: 2007 Kuota Kharma

I posted this in the Road forum but wanted to share this with you guys since my heart and my size belongs here. I just got this last Friday so I haven't got a lot of miles on it but all I can say is wow. I got a great fitting and this thing is unreal. All 105 ten speed with the R700 compact crank. I went from a triple on my last bike to the compact and I haven't missed the triple yet. I have been riding some of the same routes I did before and have not missed the granny gear.
