    It was great to see you yesterday and even greater that you could get a nice ride in while you were here.

    You're right. It's also going to poke someone's eye out w/ that extra steerer length.

    Blow up and pin a picture of M. Bartoli on your wall. When you achieve that position, stop. Until then, stretch, ride, stretch, ride, eat less, and ride more.

    Some pics. This combo is totally awesome. I could be happy with only this bike. It is not as stiff as the Dogma. Great climbing setup. It is only 40k but these wheels seem to do everything very well.

    That is exceptionally badass.

    I told Amie I'm downsizing - selling the "fast bike", which I "don't really need". But really what I'm doing is setting her up for the Spectrum order 6-8 months from now.

    Keep in mind that we are running about nine months on our Ti frames at this point. Just sayin'.

    I got in at the right time--4 months for me. I need to start thinking more seriously and plan ahead for it's cross twin.

    Hey mods, is there a "love" button? "Like" doesn't quite do it for this bike.

    Spectrum Fall small.jpg

    This is an overdue post from when fall color was just getting going. Today there's nearly a half foot of snow and it's all of 11F. Until things warm up a bit, I'll reflect back to this.

    somehow this brake cable does not worry me a second. I tend to cut them all like this.

    Hearing ride impressions from my other brother Lionel and sister from another mother Speedychix is truly heartwarming stuff. T.K. Has a gift and we the owners of these bikes are happy to tell all who will listen. Get in line, go to the barn and commence counting down the hours.
    The man says that with new technology and available materials he can build me a better bike than my 8 year old Spectrum and that is where we disagree. Who does he think he is.....Tom Kellogg or something????

    Well, much better one, how old is TK's personal bike again ? But wanting another color could be a good enough reason to get a second one TT.

    Yeah, one in each color. Sounds like an excellent plan. So how about you SpeedyChix? There are a lot of other colors that you don't have yet.
