    She's way nicer of a bike than I really need, but I really couldn't resist:

    I'm adopting her from a girl on team Cucina Fresca who's going into Peace Corps. This is Bike #4; my husband says if I want to get another, I'll have to get rid of one. Guess now I'll have to start riding fast to make it worth it.

    Too much bike just means you'll grow into it. That's a beautiful metallic blue color

    She's lovely! And your 4 bikes still take up less space than one car

    Nice. I've read good things bout that bike. She should be wicked fast

    Should write a ride report after you've got some miles under her.

    Grats!

    I've put about 100 miles on her so far. Yow! I have a lot to live up to in this bike. She is FAST, or wants to be. Today I did 45 miles/~3500 feet (depending on who you ask) of climbing and I won't say it was easy, but it sure wasn't as challenging as I was expecting. Every hill I got to the bottom and thought, "OK, this is going to be really hard," and when I got to the top, I realized "Gee, that wasn't nearly as bad as I was expecting." The handling was crisp, it was very responsive feeling, and it really moved when you stepped on the pedals.

    So...two thumbs up. Awesome bike.
