I just bought a road ride after being a MTBer
for the last 7 years. Oh boy what a defference,
I did 24 miles in 58 min. before I came in to
make some adjustments. I forgot how much
time you make on the road. I'm still doing the
MTBer thing aswell, just thought I'd do some
cross training roadie style. :D

Now I'm looking to build up a SS ride! Soon!


Good day all VÈÑÍ VÍÐÌ VÌÇÍ ™

great bike to start your road affair with!!

It rides way better than my old Cannondale R400 and R4000 AL frames I had
through 90 to 98. I really like the way TI feels not near as stiff. I plan on doing a
many a mile on it.

Thank you very much and good day :)

Where do you live?

A few years ago I hooked up a mechanic who worked for me with a shop employee price on a Klein Attitude frame that had Veni,Vedi, Vichi painted on the top tube. It was cool!

Sounds like you're ready for Cat 3 at least

24 miles in 58 min. nearly breaks the magic hour for a 40K time trial. You're one fast dude, especially for this time in the season and the fact that you weren't likely on a closed TT course. Time to get that racing license and upgrade quickly.

I ride w/the race team from the LBS this Sat. I dought I'm all that though
but I do think I'll surprize some of those guys n gals that been talking
smack bout MTBers as you see I'm use to pushing 2'' tires w/bout
28 to 30 psi and here in Williamsburg Va it's a bit hilly unlike the
flats of Newport News so I think it shall be a fun ride on sat.

BTW thank alot I'm now inspired to give it all I got!

Thanks and good day
