Happy Birthday to Me


Just ordered my new bike, it should arrive just in time for my birthday. The bike will look similar to the one pictured above, full Campy Record, with Campy Neutron wheels, and speedplay X-1 pedals (nach).

I test road a BMC Pro Machine SLC 01 on a whim, and didn't really expect to find a bike better than my current custom steel Cherry. I was just looking from something lighter that rode as well. I was supprised at just how well the BMC rode. The BMC felt alive and eager, very eager. I was riding a couple gears higher than I usually do on every part of my test ride. On the decent down Page Mill, I thought I was stuck in the small chainring, but I had in fact spun out my highest gear. Duuuuude!
