My New Bike Arrived Today At The Local Bike Shop.

Giant Advanced TCR, Dura Ace, It weighs 15.1lbs without pedals. I have to wait until next week to get it fitted, I'm jonseing like a crackhead to get that bike in my hands. It almost seems weightless compared to the Winnebago.

Oh you can bet there will be pictures, it's still at the LBS getting fitted & the mechanic wants to be extra careful and he knows if it's not just right he'll own it if he cuts the seat post too low.

Hey Sarge! Now it looks like your avatar could be looking at my avatar thinking about tasty tortoise.

Tortoise is tasty.

Slow, but tasty.

Looking forward to yer pics of the new bike.
