my ohio fleet consists of a soloist team and ridley supercross, but i doubt either of those two will make it out here.

I probably should have gotten closer to the bike, but anyway...



The bike is a 2010 Motobecane that I purchased off eBay. I don't normally ride in the area where the photo was taken, but it was pretty nice, and I can't think of many places around Orange County that feature such a vista.

Fenders in San Diego? Are you just being ironic?
Sorry about your loss, and gratulations on the new bike.

I'm getting a new saddle soon, the current one is cheap and pretty uncomfortable. Maybe a fizik arione off ebay.

My drive train is a mishmash of parts too lol. Tiagra RD, Ultegra 6700 FD, 2010 Force crankset, Ultegra 9 spd 6500 shifters with a 12-26 sram cassette. I'll probably make the jump to 10spd in a month or two when I have the funds.

Nice to see that your public funded job to which I am paying for with my taxes has allowed you to buy a bike.
