"new bitch" that's been on this earth longer than I have.

Soon as I can get that god damn stem out of there and start building. Don't want to bash on any of it because it's all $$$ but f*ck me is it ever annoying.

I mean, when people get a new bitch they don't typically mean a newborn.

Tried taking it to the local bike shop?

I love those old Roubaix models. So much nicer than the new ones.

I'm thinking of selling it if you're interested. I don't really need another road bike, but I do want to get a fat bike.

Heh, no thanks. When my Addict is done being modified with new rims, cassette, chain, derailleur, and chain ring, it will be sub-15 lbs lol I'll be all set.

My new frame went in production this week, should arrive within 3 / 4 weeks time.

Still need to decide on the group set, wheels will be another pair of Bora wheels.

Nice. My Allez is sub 18.5lbs., not too shabby for an aluminum bike.

I really like my Hutchinson 35 tubeless tires. I ran 40s for a while but I like to run higher pressure than most. Hutchinson was one of the first names in the tubeless road game and their bead seal game is on point.
