It chose me!

Soon to change to 52×36 gearing.
How many miles/kilometers do you do a year?
Just over 10,000 miles in 2021.
What do you love about this bike?
The clear finish is amazing since you can see every detail of the construction. Plus, it’s a very smooth and stable ride.
Favorite riding area?
North Texas is crisscrossed by many small roads so while it’s not exactly Italy, it’s not bad!
Favorite riding experience on your bike?
Can I circle back at the end of 2022? But first rides are always memorable and exciting.
That’s a toughie. Hard to upgrade over D/A 9200.
My DS made me promise to take good care of my new team bike, or else.
