Picked up some carbon tubulars and shoes today... (pics)

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

Yes I know I need to cut the steerers... I just can't bring myself to do it yet.

Don't worry about the steerers. If you put a Garmin on the stem, the extended steer tubes are hardly noticeable.

Plus, that gives you some wiggle room if you decide to raise your stem for a more comfortable, or in some cases more powerful, position.
