Blazing Saddles

Had a lot of fun taking my new road bike for a spin around the Marin Headlands. I wanted to see how it'd do on the steep climbs of Hawk Hill. I found myself standing up a lot and really putting down the hammer. I still can't believe how stiff everything is, yet supple and comfortable on long stretches of chattery road.

I can't wait to get a new pedal platform and shoes to really see its full potential. I'm thinking about Speedplays and Specialized carbon soled shoes.
