So it has been 8 weeks since I sent my 5500 back to Trek and I became impatient. I traded in my MTB and got myself a TT frame and built it up with the parts off my 5500. Here is a picture of her being held by a friend on our maiden voyage at the top of Caddy Mt. in Bar Harbor ME.

How do you like Aegis frame compare to your 5500 Trek. I am thinking of owning a CF frame but I still cannot decide which one of those two is best for me.

It is a little early to have any concrete feelings as I have less than 100 miles on the Aegis. Also, remember that my Aegis is the TT frame. The only thing I'm willing to say at the moment is that it feels stiffer than my 5500 did. Probably explains the weight difference. I'll hop on a friends 5500 to remind myself of the ride and let you know more as it has been 2 months since I rode mine and I've been riding a steel bike which cost less than my waterbottle cages during that time, so my feelings may be a little off. E-mail me if you have any specific questions at hikerryank@aol.com.

I've seen ads with Dario Frigo, but I always thought they were a joke!!!
