Since I'm not really sure of what to write on, I thought I'd let you know what I'm riding these days. I was busy at school with a lot of engineering work, but thanks to Shickluna bikes, they built some new components into what I was previously riding. I loved the bike then, I love the bike now. I rode about 3500 miles this season, with my limited time, and that includes two centuries. Hopefully, she'll come with me for a 100 mile ride in Cayuga, which we've been thinking about for a few days now.
The ride characteristics are good but depends a lot on the rider! If you dress well and you're upbeat, this baby will take you fast! I'm usually that way, so she has not disappointed me.
Specialized Allez, used it for 2 years, and since I've a special attachment to it, no I'm not going to carbon.
Zero gravity brakes are a fine piece, but I wouldn't say there any better than the brakes out there. Maybe this would do better with a set of BHP brakepads.
The handlebar tape is unique in itself, it plays in light, and is washable! I like to stand out a bit here and there...Nokon's deliver a clean look to the front.
Speedplay Ti Zeros, the next best thing after my shimano mountain pedals! No really, shimano's rock! :)
The highly recommended racing set of Pro 2's with exceptional low rolling resistance...I think I wrote a post on these so check it out..
Thanks for looking. Leave a few comments if you'd like!
Happy weekend. Ci vediamo...
