ok, I knew I couldn't resist, but thanks to those that replied...I bought the Klein q pro carbon...it is a beautiful bike...

My last q pro was fitted w/ Chorus 9 speed...this w/ Dura Ace...I hope I get used to the Shimano soon, cuz so far I miss the Campy (no flames!). Just what I got used to I guess, and the broken in Chorus was like silk and seemed more intuitive when shifting...I'm sure I'll get used to that! That and the fact that you can move more than one gear in BOTH directions...

Just happy to get back out on a bike...only to find out my legs didn't do well w/ nearly a month off...man am I out of shape!

anyway...the only down side is my wife seems to like this bike an awful lot...now suddenly her old Trek isn't good enough!
Nice bike , enjoy your ride - nt!config

Never, ever, post about your bike without a picture. Yes, we demand a picture!=)

hmmm...never done that here...hope this works.

I managed to convince my wife that it was a good idea to go out today as well...and I felt more comfortable w/ the shifting already...and boy did it feel good on a five mile descent (I still need to work on the climbing part)

The only thing I may change would be the seat, but I'll give it a chance, a Sell San Marco Era leather/titanium...a little hard

you think its ok to skip work for a week or so???
