The Bike Continued…

I now understand why Russ, the owner of Stratford Cycle Studio told me at the bike fit that I would never want to back to a steel or alloy frame again. Wow what a difference. Aside from the fact that it’s almost indecently light, 6 pounds lighter than my previous road bike, it handles so well. For the technically minded it is a Trek  Project One Madone, SRAM Force group-set and Mavic wheel-set.

I reckon that my average speed is already up by 2-3mph which is great; to put that in a crude perspective, in theory that actually trims nearly a day off LEJOG!
