Dave came to buy a bike from me after constantly working on his old bikes and always having issues it seemed. Then one day he was riding with a group and went down. Didn't even know what happened. But his wife was pretty pissed and he couldn't hold his son for a while due to his injuries. This was not cool. His wife didn't even want him to race again. But for those of us who have been in this situation understand that just isn't possible. So what do you do when you fall off the horse? You get back on. But what do you do when you fall of the bike? Buy a new one! With the old one broken we had to replace it along with a couple of new parts...shifters and such. This is pretty much a Sram Force build with a Rotor Agilis crank and Quarq power meter with Deda Zero 100 stem and bars. As the picture weighs 16lbs and 4 oz. Pretty awesome if you as me...especially since his old bike was like 19lbs! Oh yeah....this one is not only stiffer and lighter...its custom so the fit is WAY better! Now for the hard part...his first ride is tomorrow and he has some jitters. I have been gets better...
