Nothing like a new bike
Got the new road bike in today. I can't wait to get it out and see how it feels on the road. I've never really spent much time on a road bike so I'm interested to see how it goes. Of course it's probably going to be a while since I did't see any temps getting out of the teens with some winds and more snow for the next week when I looked at the forecast. I am curious to see how much faster I can get through my road route that I had been doing on the bolinas. This is the 07 model of the marin portofino. The 08 looks a lot different. They changed the shape of the tubing on the 08. It is just the stock bike with the only change (for now) is the pedals. I added the crankbrothers quattro pedals. Here's some pics I took when I brought it in and parked it in my little basement office for a while.
