    I hate bike shops which try and sell you something just because it's on the shop floor and easier for them.

    I rode with a Asian lady the other day who just brought a $7K bike. It was FAR too big for her. Her saddle was on the seat tube, she had a tiny stem, you could see her rocking on the saddle from behind as she pedalled. I told her to take it back to the shop and get them to order the smaller size and to tell them to stop being so lazy.

    So my bike is here....

    Brought it home Friday. Went out for my first 37 miles - combined two day total. It's a nice ride. My bike shop is wonderful. The owner is a crit racer and long distance rider. He isn't lazy by any means and he wasn't trying to set me up with just any bike. He set me up on the trainer and spent almost 3 hours; 1 1/2 for the initial fit/measurements and 1 when my bike arrived/tweaking. I go back in this week for my shoes and pedals. I'm a women's size 11. I'm using strap pedals right now.

    It's a nice ride. Love it. I can't wait until my next ride tomorrow.

    I tried to upload photos but didn't seem to work.
