New bike is finally here.... sorry to keep you all waiting

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

Well here it is.....

The motobecane sprint with ultegra front, rear derailleurs and brifters. Came with clipless and carbon stays, and a nasty awesome paint job.

If you crash, don't worry about that pretty rig, worry about your thin skin. ;-)

Here MEC sells the 22 gram Planet Bike cages for $35. Not a fan of their logo, either, but it's a nice cage.
