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

BEAUTIFUL! Also, your saddle looks slightly nose-up.

Did I snag a deal or what?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/280822939279...#ht_500wt_1204

Surprised that I was the only bidder after the guy who bid the asking price.

Just dropped my order for this.

Sram Force group for the carbon bike.
Compact 52/36 Crank, 11x28 cassette

Depending on pricing (Since I'm going through my sponsor) Some new Carbon Integrated Handlebars/Stem.
May take 2 weeks for the stuff to get here, but I have been surprised before, by speedy delivery.

That's probably going to be the ticket for the frameset I won. Congrats.

My Force group came along with other goodies. Also, just picked up a Feedback sports repair stand as my SD Essential Stand doesn't work with the carbon bikes.
So This


Plus the stand


Plus Duro Hypersonic tires, AirLight tubes, some polar bottles, bellweather gloves, White grip tape, SI Carbonio Flow saddle. I am sure I am forgetting a few things.

Those Circuits were great bikes, under appreciated bikes for sure.

I think Schwinn, in it's original form, would be around today if they hadn't made a slew of junk bikes and very few good ones; and if they were still around Trek would probably be a smaller company today with about 1/2 the offerings they offer today. But that's history.
