Bartali

Oh my god ...

... I can't believe how good my Parlee is!  

Took it out for the first time today and it is by far and away the best bike I have ever ridden!  Even with a bad leg it climbs so fast and is solid as   a rock when decending.

I thought my Litespeed was a good bike, but this is in a different league.
Guys ... I'd live off bread and water for a year to get a bike as good as this!   Laughing  Laughing  Laughing







Shame about the puncture that cut my ride short!

Wow.  And here I thought you had already been riding it!  And saying nothing.  That doesn't make any sense, does it?  Wow.  What a gorgeous bike, and it looks even better with that pastoral English background!  

I love my new bike, too.  But those pictures are special, Bartali.  Especially knowing the background story of all you've been through this past year.  

Enjoy!

a mighty fine steed, bartali

puts my off-the-peg mtb to shame!
Bartali

Thanks guys.  I really couldn't believe how good it felt!

Chris - I'll take some close ups tomorrow if I can get change the tub on my own!  Natural light does it more justice!

Congrats Bartali - the bike porn leaves me cold (though even I can see that's a nice piece of design) but, to second Cape, it's what it represents - a very deserved reward for all you've been through.

Made just up the road from us, KRE.  I'm racing a crit in Santa Rosa, California one week from tomorrow.

very nice, you'll have an early season sun tan.
heading to California myself the first week of April, going to Carmel and San Francisco to visit friends and of course bringing the bike

Superb Bartali - i'd love to have a go on something like that, just to feel the difference - meanwhile I can only dream.

Great looking ride, Bartali.


Try not to break this one, OK?!

Nice bike Bartali. Its great that you're getting out again. My only reservation on the bike is the pink lettering. Wink Maybe you should have thought of using pink bar tape and a pink saddle too Very Happy

And they made fun of my yellow and black bar tape.  

I support Bartali's pink lettering because real men wear pink!

Mostly because we accidentally wash our tighty whities with our Lion King - Secco Canondale jammies.

Hey, I'm only playing along. All in memory of T-Mobile I assume. Wink (I know its for the Giro)
