The guys at my LBS spoke very highly of this frame after the rep brought in a demo. If it is half as nice as they made it out to be, then you should enjoy that a lot.

Giro Empire!

Hey guys!

Tried my Empires today on a trainer session, the shoes feels really good an light. Grips the foot in a way I never experienced before, tight and light.

Only thing that I struggled with was the tension of the laces, it's actually not a problem but it will take a couple of rides before I find the sweetspot. Love the looks and if you are considering them, just buy them ;-)

2012 Argon 18 Gallium Pro size medium. Been saving up for an evo but found one of these at a price I couldn't pass up. Should arrive sometime next week. Pretty excited coming from an '09 Madone that didn't fit too well.

...and my bike is now under the knife getting EE brakes, Aican brake cables, Alligator iLink shift cables and a new style Red FD installed.

Long live Fairwheel! Kudos to a GREAT vendor. Every time.

A pair of Michelin Pro4 tyres in 25 section, feel like giving that width a try again.
