Got new wheels can't use em :-(

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 I've got my new wheels DA/OP 28-32 DT comp 2.0-1.8's

They sure are pretty topped off with a new set of Vittoria Diamante Pro's and ultralite tubes. They are noticibly lighter than my 105/CXP21 36 Wheelsmith units that are headed for the Steelie. They appear to be pretty bombproof for my 165lbs.

But my back is going to need to heal and it's gonna be either 3-4 weeks or 3-4 months if the ribs are broken. I'm hoping it bruised vs broken since it could only be 2 1/2 more weeks.

It's like getting a new bike at Christmas when the snow is 4 feet tall - it sucks. But, you do have something to look forward to. Good luck and let us know how you like the new shoes...
