I can use this, right? I think my panniers will fit



Actually, bought it for my son for this years tri season. Not that the old man isn't going to take it for a spin

Maybe use it for commuting? Looks like you'd be blowing the doors off rush hour traffic...

Wish your son a good season for me.

Lol. Love that one.

It is however tongue in cheek, my new touring bike. Or at least the money that was going to buy it....

He's a good kid, no complaints. Lets see if he can get a speeding ticket on this one like he did his old bike
