    Sounds like that feeling you get when you've eaten too much.....

    "medically known as food fatigue."

    Very cool. Converted from MTB to road last year. Putting in consistent miles on the pedal bike has helped tremendously on the motorcycle. I like following a bunch of roadracing pros on Strava and seeing what type of rides these guys are putting in for training. It's impressive!

    One thing I learned is my road endurance greatly improved my climbing ability, off the road. When those I rode with were walking long climbs, I was able to grind it out. Granted, my HR was ~190, but, it beats shamefully walking one’s MTB to the top.

    It has dual disc brakes. Definitely not a freewheel BMX bike. :D

    Plus you don't want to look like a spandex fairy.

    (Fairy is a purely non sexual denigration of man who shaves his legs and wears tights. Equal opportunity hate.)

    Kinda surprised it weighs nearly 17 pounds, given the spec. Especially in a 52 and a not-particularly-aero frame.

    Jealous of you guys in the mountain areas. Off-road riding this year has sucked in Iowa. Too much damn rain. I've been out exactly one time this year.

    Got a link? My experience doesn’t convey the same.

    Cool pic. Thumbs up!

    A lot of weight to be shed in the spec (aero wheels, 2X, etc). I suspect they weren’t chasing weight, but, more of just building a really nice piece.
