What road bike do you have?

Notices
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

What road bike do you have?

It is a dream to ride and is really light, fast, responsive and corners well. I love it and I never want to get off. I have changed over the saddle to a Selle Italia and now I have Look clipless pedals. I have tried to post a picture but all that comes up is a square with a red cross in the middle, so don't know what else to do to post a pic. I'll try one last time.
Cool to hear about someone so happy with their new bike. I remember that feeling 5 years ago. I never really liked the look of Trek bikes before but the latest models look quite good and yours is very nice. Enjoy the ride. As far as the photos go....why don't you try hosting your pics on an online hosting site like Photobucket or Imageshack. From there you can post your shots directly to the forum.

Cheers,

Brian J.

Thanks. They made a run of blue / black Aero 420's for Jamis to be spec'd on some of their 2010 bikes. I got lucky and came across a set on ebay

Send us:
a. Your damaged helmet;
b. A copy of your dated cash register receipt;
c. A letter describing your accident (in as much detail as possible)

Ship to:
GIRO
Consumer Service
1924 County Road, 3000 North
Rantoul, IL 61866

If you have any questions about this program please call us at (800) 456-2355 or e-mail us at Feedback@giro.com. Crash replacement program is available to U.S. customers only. Customers outside the U.S. should call (800) 456-2355 or e-mail us for information on the crash replacement program applicable to them. Remember: NEVER wear a helmet thats been involved in an accident.

--------------------------------------------------------------

i will give them a call.

A dated receipt? C'mon you'd be too busy organizing your paperwork to ride.

edit: the brake cable is long too.
