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.

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).
