    I really am trying to get back in shape, but a bike without a motor just doesn't seem natural.

    Just so my post doesn't seem completely off-topic, I should say that this bike is going to be my reward to myself for reaching my weight goal. I can't wait. Get it? Weight? Eric

    Well...sort of, but bicycles are WAY COOLER!!:cool: ;f ;f

    And Eric, that will be a nice present to yourself, but isn't it sort of self-defeating?? I mean, after you get to your target weight, then you're gonna ride the motorcycle...and walk less...
    With a new bicycle, you'd still get your workout!;f

  15. Nice bike! ~2 ~2

    How comfortable is that bike? I am in the market for a TT bike and am interested in how that rocket rides!

    Thaks,

    Thanks Scott, I'm happy with the bike. I ride with the seat jacked up and the handlebars dropped down, so I'm as comfortable as you can be like that. I've ridden a century on it and I thought my neck was going to give out, but that's my fault for the way I intentionally ride it. My advice would be to find a good triathlon shop near you that sells many different brands, have them measure your body, and then fit you to the proper bike. IMO, that's the best way to ensure comfort.

    Nice looking CDale. Ride angle is a bit too extreme for my taste, but if it works for you, go for it! ;)

    Yeah. I'm pretty flexible and it doesn't bother me. I end up sliding way up on my seat during my ride too. My seat is all the way forward and i'll probably take another spacer out of my headset.
