Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

So nice, weighs in right around 18 or 18.2 pounds with everything. Rides great, just need to get the wheels trued and the derailluers adjusted, since they're both a little bit off. I still have to fine tune the seat height and pitch and the angle of the handlebars. Roadbikes=so hot right now. A whole summer's worth of caddying money went to this, but looking at the bike, it was so worth it.

Great looking bike, I really like the color scheme. (Looks like the seat might be pointing down a bit too much - yes/no?)
