New Lid

It appears to be "rounder" than other Giros I have and fits my head very well. The medium size weighs only 299 grams on my digital scale. The straps are a little too long. Maybe I should cut them down later.

Now this will allow me to go 5.7% faster...

There is a very thorough review on this at Competitive Cyclist.

Road Bike?

Now I'm seriously thinking about getting a road bike, either a full bike or building it myself. Size 54 should be just right. To me C and Ti make more sense as frame material, so they are my first choices. A Dura Ace group would be nice, but Ultegra should work just fine. A set of light wheels? Lots of homework to do.

Of course there is also new road helmet, and gloves, and shoes...

Did my first ever road ride with Andy and Rob on Thursday. A 28-mile loop around Middletown. Rob kindly let me borrow his Lemond. The bike has a 10-speed rear and a triple front. I found I needed them all.

Under 19 lb Full Suspension at Speedgoat

Saw this build on the Speedgoat site. Really like the SRAM Red with bar-end shifter. I would have probably done that too had I known of the Paul adapter.
