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

I got this frame a few weeks ago and finally had some time to swap everything over. compared to my lemond (6066 alum.) this ride is definately stiffer. No hint of bounce which I was able to feel on the lemond. I cant be certain if it smooths out road vibration alot but It does feel "quieter"(for lack of a better word) over the rough stuff. quite responsive, and when I hammer down it jumps. what more can I ask for. total wieght w/o bottles and bag is under 16 lbs!
