This has been LOOONG overdue but I have new BIKE PORN!!! I brought Pandora home about a month ago and have enjoyed watching my bike volume skyrocket. She is SO much fun to ride. Plus, she LOVES hills. We can't get enough of them! I feel like I get left behind when she takes off up a hill. For the first time in my life, power and muscular endurance is not a limiter when climbing. I have to gear up to get out of the saddle! And I love getting out of the saddle! I settle into a rhythm and alternate out and in the saddle for climbs. It's amazing. I am going to find every hill in San Diego and ride it at least 3 times!
Look 585 Elle (medium)
w/compact cranks (SRAM), 25 cassette, Ultegra, Look Keo pedals
total weight (I actually weighed her) = 18 lbs
Fit? Like a glove
Ride? Like a dream
I'm in heaven.
Note that Babs (my little movie star) insisted on hopping into and posing for EVERY picture!
Of course, I had to get matching helmet, shades, and shoes for Pandora! A girl has to get matching shoes! (Yes, I have a matching jersey too).
