Thanks. It was on the '05 GS as well.

'06. I hate to say it, but for a while, it won't be getting too many miles as I'm going to do the pedal bike to work for a while- new year's resolution and all...

Jamesginther 01-02-2008 01:28 PM

Pedaling it great TOO!
 
I do most of my riding at lunch time, cuz I just can't get myself motivated for the ride home from work. Either way, it's on 2 wheels...good luck to you.

I'm looking for my first road bike....my friends are razzing me about riding this damn Schwinn MTB all year-something like 1400 miles. Ahh, but pulling all that weight keeps me strong!

So, whadya got?

ghist of thestory, a fixie apparently collided with a fedex truck that was turning right, this is right after a steep narrow downhill where the signs TELL bicyclists to use the whole lane and cars not to pass. the fedex truck apparently didn't stop, may not have known he even hit the kid, the cyclist is dead, but the bike is unscratched, they are looking for the fedex driver.

So tell me, please, am I completely crazy to even contemplate spending $1600 on this?

Are the specs worthy of that kind of price? Is it a rip-off. I can see a $200-300 hit for the Ducati tie-in. I like the style, and I need to replace my old Trek and I've always wanted a bianchi.
Thinking, perhaps naively, that getting a new bike will be added incentive to ride more often.

I just bought this one for $1599 on sale ($1000 off :thumb). Full carbon, all Ultegra and DuraAce. You can find some sweet deals on '07's out there right now depending on what you are going to do with it.

Yes, you are completely out of your gord to pay that cash for that thing. Look at what I paid for what I got and Makalu paid for a road bike.

That- and flame away- Ducatis are junk. :lol3 But don't tell Casey Stoner that...

:tb That is an awesome bike there mein frau. :nod I just decided after 25 years of riding nothing but moutain bikes I wanted to start doing some triathlons so I sprung for the Tarmac. You will like your new bike.

I dont pass by this thread often, there is heaps of info here though, anyway - 1 hr ago I saw my new bike - I got it ordered in specially - an Orbea Zenit.:D

it uses an aluminuim frame - Lanza they call it, its gray and dark blue - so will hide in the shadows! 11.3Kg / 24.9 Lb - Top of the range hardtail racer from Orbea.

Fox FRL100 forks, Avid Juicy 5 brakes, Mavic cross trail wheels, and LX and XT gear.

Pick it up saturday..... ordered it before christmas and waiting waiting waiting.......

Its gonna be a race bike and so no riding in the rain till the racing starts - which is a bummer because the wet season just started here.....

Cheers

That's a hot deal Mac, just curious why it has a Triple crank, but I guess that's cool if you ride steep hills alot.

I have that same seatpost on my Fixed gear, you'll like it. I bet that frame is stiff as hell.

good luck w it.

My new ride.
 
I love the "fixed" gears

I have nothing against fixed bikes, but is there a reason there isn't at least a front brake on fixed bikes. I understand the feet are the driving and stopping motions, but I would think you would want at least a front brake.

Just curious.
