2 rides down so far. It's nice to have that aero wheel sound back under me.
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

New handlebar on the way. I picked up a used Zipp SLC2 for $100. Can't hurt to try it out. It will shave a little bit of weight. Nip and tuck, right? That will get the weight just under 16# as shown, including the SRM computer.

And I have to say that I love the Continental GP 4000s tires. The 23c tires measure as 25mm, and that freaked me out a bit (because fat tires aren't aero, right), but I spoke with the guy at Hed who ran the latest set of wind tunnel tests and those are the exact tires that they used to get the great wind tunnel results. The ride of the tires is REALLY nice.

If you want fat tires, buy a mountain bike :angelMrGreen:

So, on Friday my rear derailleur started to not work. Just every 10th shift or so it wouldn't shift. Then it wouldn't shift at all. Damn. Electrical short. After hours of trying to re-solder wires I couldn't get it fixed. As a reminder, I took my external wiring harness and hacked it apart to make it internal. Slowly but surely I have had to re-solder those spliced wires over the last 2 years. So Saturday I just took the whole harness out of the bike and threw it in the garbage. Last year I bought a new internal wiring harness and now was the time to get it installed. Now I have a proper internal wiring harness in Victoria and she's a very happy bike.
