So picked up a '10 Allez Elite yesterday, today went out for my first road cycle in many years - did an slow (13 mph/avg i think) 22 mile ride on very flat roads. beautiful spring day, flowers out, bikers out...
i am really amazed by the smoothness of the ride - of course i'm coming from riding a mountain bike for the past 5 years -
need to get my SPD pedals off my mtn bike so i can put them on the Allez, but have to buy a wrench first cause they are stuck on damn tight... it's hard to ride a bike with normal pedals
excited to go out again - i can see what the addiction is all about
