Today was my first real ride on the new bike. It rides really well - best bike I've ever ridden. It fits perfectly. feel no flex in the bottom bracket area, which I like. And it feels super smooth. I am running tubular tires and for the first time ever for me, carbon rims. Interesting feel - no road buzz whatsoever.

My wife and I took a drive to a place called St. George Utah, which is about a 5 hour drive from home. I got up early and went for a ride in a place called Snow Canyon. Absolutely beautiful. I stopped and took a a few photos for you.
