Lol^^^^^ last pic on the scale! The Ultrastar2 went in today.

A buddy of mine is a pro photog and we have been trying to get a spot and time! Tomorrow we take the pics. He takes RAW then processes them. I estimate they will be done by the 17th or so....

I think you would have satisfied quite a few viewers on here if you took a few steps to the right and took a proper side shot. We have 4 pages worth of teasers!!

You're getting there... Now do the same while showing the drivetrain side with the chain in the big ring! You could also loose the red bottle.

Not as pretty drivetrain shot, and yes I know the chain isn't in the big ring, all of the Pro shots are.

She rides sublime! I tested over 25 bikes to arrive to the conclusion that she was the one. She has the perfect blend of road buzz/feel to dampening of any bike out. The pedaling compliance is so forgiving yet responsive. The seated climb is effective in the high double digit grades. When you get out of the saddle she comes to life for spirited high wattage efforts. The descending is super stable even with high cross winds. She gens up fast for sprints, and lastly she stays stable during TT efforts.

I can't say enough about this bike! It truly is an all a rounder!

Thanks! Originally I was a bigger fan of the earlier model with the 3k weave in the fork and seat stays, but this model year is growing on me. I am quite happy with her!

No problem. :) Thanks! I can't wait for the pro shoots either. He used at least 4 different lenses at a great location. All shots were captured in RAW so he's processing them as we speak!
