Got a new bike...!!

So...i was a little unhappy with my old bike...see below...my 07 Fuji Team Pro



I think basically i am getting stronger and starting to notice more...i.e. flex in the BB and a vague feeling to the steering in descents, and the wheels sucked on it.....


so i got this....i lost about 5% on the other bike (performance took a little off for wear and tear) and it is an 06 vice the 07 that the Team Pro was...but...it has a much better feeling frame as it is a much stiffer and lighter carbon....with pedals it's a pound lighter than the other one without pedals.

Took it on the exact same ride i did last weekend and loved it...better climber...much more cofident on descents also...great bike over all...and it has Full Dura Ace over the Ultegra (which i can't tell the difference honestly). and the new bike doesn't clash so much with my helmet

06 Fuji Team RC...

Congratulations. At least you admit the real reason.
