So after changing my mind on my first road bike five times. I'm sure driving the kid at the LBS nuts with the changing paperwork I finally just went down and paid for this one and brought it home. Rode it for the first time yesterday am before work for about and hour. My wife ran over some piece of steel and blew a tire so I got a change to push hard for five miles. I was more comfortable than I thought it would be at least for that time duration. I dont know enough or have enough experience to rate it, but I like it! LOL Not a great pic, but you get the idea.
