New Bike




She has been hanging in Bike Plus for 2 years just waiting for me. So finally here are some pictures of the new bike. It is a 2006 Giant OCR Limited, with a grand total of 10 miles on it (by me on the first test ride). Upgrades that have been made already, I put my Fizik saddle and Crank Brothers pedals from my old ride onto the new bike. Please don't bust my chops about the non matching bottle cages, they will be replaced with carbon fiber matching cages soon.

I didn't get a ride in today as we were busy with church and then a benefit 10k bike ride in Vermillion. The whole family rode, the Mrs. and Ms K. riding 5k and Mr. T. and me riding the 10k. Mr. T. conquered Winery Hill without walking his bike, I was very proud of him. The Biking Brady clan will be arriving soon for a relaxing evening (we lock the kids in the basement).

Later

Congrats on your new ride! Your stem is too high ;-)

Stem is purposely set a bit higher to try to take some pressure off my left shoulder that I injured during 2007 Gut-Check. We replaced the original stem with an adjustable stem so I can play with different positions to try to find the one that causes the least amount of irritation.
