This is my old bike:

And this is my new bike:

The reason for the new bike is the cycling team I help out changed bikes because of some ugliness with a sponsor. I chose to not ride the old bike anymore and got this su-weet new one. It's a Guru Flite with a custom paint job, Speedplay pedals, FSA Carbon bars and seat post, and Velomax Orion II wheels. It weighs a grand total of 18.1 pounds.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go stare at it for a few more minutes.

PS - If you look at the team picture, I'm the chunk of lead on the far right in the white shirt.


Still staring? :)) Awesome bike!

Happy peddling! ( With the Wizard of OZ tune in the background...)

Way cool. And a great way to get some exercise, right?

I got your email with the photos. Looks sweet! My bike weighs 19.5 lbs so I already have envy. Geez it doesn't take long!

You weren't wearing your cute little outfit like the other team members...

Thanks, everyone! Now if it would only stop raining so I could ride.

SM, I know what I'm getting you for your next b-day. Carbon water-bottle cages! It'll knock some weight off. :-)

And the reason I'm not wearing my 'cute little outfit' is because I was pretending to be the Team, the jersey is too small. Race-cut jerseys are TINY!

I dig those carbon water bottle cages.

I figured you would...You're already a becoming a bike-gear junkie. :-) Welcome to the fold!

will you totally ride that bike down the aisle while wearing your new bridesmaid dress after your back waxing?

I would totally do that, although I'm afraid the color of this bike may clash with the color of the dress. That would just make me look tacky. :-)
