Last night, after weeks of anticipation, I picked up my new Eddy Merckx Team SC. You all know the feeling of that moment when you're the star of the shop while being fitted. It's an instant trip back to childhood when you first swung a leg over the new Schwinn. The problems of adulthood fade away at least while you tool around the block on the trick new ride.

You know you're gonna make a million micro adjustments in the coming weeks, but right then, as you teeter towards the back door of the shop, everything seems perfect, doesn't it? The paint shines, the light glitters off the Campy Record and you tell yourself that this is last bike you'll ever need or want knowing full well that in a year or so your eye will wander towards the next bike made of another element on the Periodic Table.

The question is, how long will I last at work today?
