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

New bike

All right boys, I've done it! I 've just put the downpayment for a new 2006 team TT Trek bike. I was really considering Cervelo P3C but there were some issues. It should arrive in 2 weeks and as soon as it arrives I would report how it went.
Cheers

Not to give you buyer's remorse but...

What made you give up the P3C!?!?

Ah well, if it's good enough for Lance...

Don't get me wrong. P3C has a fantastic frame, but components are a notch better on Trek. Also I am not sure about ridding on the bike with full team colours! Lastly I got very good offer (the difference about 500 Can$) & purchased from the store that I have a very good relation with. It actually occured to me if it was good for Lance it is good....
