Here is my BlackLite, have had it about a year, not allot of riding this past year had my Gallbladder out and am a single dad so my training has dwindled a bit. With the winter coming I have a spin bike I will get to know better and get this out on the good days before Crit Season. I have tried a few other imported small company frames, found this one locally and loved it. Great price too! best thing is, they already had them in the states so no waiting and no customs delays (they already went through that S*** for me) and I love this one the most, very stiff, very light, and the front end is made for sprinting, serious stiffness in the fork and headtube. I cant ask for more. I have had an SWorks Tarmac, and SWorks E5, and a Cannondale R600 before that, so those are what I am comparing the ride to, and I cant be happier! The rides I do have some good climbs and great long farm roads with little traffic in my area. Great Race scene in Utah as well so hoping to get back out to the week night crits next year.

Blacklite frame and fork tapered head tube and integrated seat post.
Easton Tempest II wheels
Sram Force Brakes
Sram Force Shifters
Sram Force Cranks and BB
Sram Force Front and Rear deraileurs
Sram Rival Chain (money saver)
Sram Red Cassette 11/25
FSA Saddle
FSA Headset
Bontrager Racelite Stem
Specialized Pro Aluminum bars (I love these bars, for some reason I keep going back to them)
Serfas Bar Tape
Vredestein tires
Specialized Tubes

Upgrades to come in the way of a new stem, Carbon wheels for race days, A better Saddle (need the center cutout my nads get numb) I miss my Selle Italia SLR gel Flow.
Better Pics to follow I promise....

:welcome: to WW.

Good base to build on WW-style.

We all have time constraints, but don't worry, once the WW bug bites, it is difficult to stop with the upgrades... :wink:

Very nice looking bike! I hope you have more chances to ride in the upcoming year (without being a detriment to you parent/child relationship).
