The love of a new bike...(6 posts)

The love of a new bike...Triphop
Dec 2, 2003 1:57 PM
I just got my first ride on my new bike at lunch...wow is all I can say. How amazing the ride of this new bike felt was beyond words. Last summer I got my first road bike, coming from mountian biking, it was fast, smooth, all the things that a road bike is known/dreamt to be. But now, I know the real meaning/feeling of fast and smooth (not to mention proper fit)...incredible the difference. Just gliding down the road...no buzz, nothing...just peace and solace from the world. Yeah, alot of the difference is probably just in the tires, but the whole package is just head and shoulders above my old ride...I have just fallen in love with another bike. :)

Just had to get that out...

I don't have any pics yet, (no digital camera) but here is the setup...acquired it all over the past few months, and built it up myself. I'll try to borrow a camera tonight.

61cm Ciocc EOM carbon (pearl white w/ silver and black accents)
Deda Black Blades fork
2003 Chorus group
ITM Millenium stem/bars
Mavic Ksyrium Elites w/ Vittoria Open Corsa tires
Time Impact S pedals

Looking to get a Millenium post to match and need to keep trying saddles to find "the one".

Old ride was a 58cm Schwinn Peloton, reynolds 853, with full Ultegra, alloy fork...bought used. A good bike, but it didn't fit and had some serious miles on it.

I ride and race a Ciocc and i'm not eager to ride anything else. One sweet ride.

There should be some kind of site law against posting specs like that without a picture! You MUST post a pic SOON! If not, let me know and I'll come to your house with my camera to post something...
