New bike day, sort of...

Actually have had this for a while now, Litespeed Ultimate. arrived a bit earlier than anticipated but could not ride due to really crappy weather here in reno. This is the bike i was asking about regarding geometry and DI2/Mechanical a couple of months ago. This is a little more aggressive than what i have which will be relegated to a trainer and crappy weather.

really liking the DI2, i know i need to make some FD adjustments though since it is not shifting as well as one would expect but shifting overall is really nice. today heading up the hill and out of saddle shifting up and down is just so easy. really glad i have it. today was my 5th ride on it and on the descent i really started to feel one with it, that is such a good feeling.

happy is me and can't wait to get back on her tomorrow.

I'll pass on the aero bars but otherwise....stunning.

I need a Ti-framed bike to round out my collection...but I don't want to spend as much as that thing set you back...

I think if I decide to replace something I have, I would love to go TI. I've had my eye on a Moots, but stupid pricey.

That is a beautiful bike.

I was about to buy a CF Giant Defy, but the bike just didn't excite me. Ti is a bit more, but it's just so nice to look at.

Did you do the BB47 upgrade?
