Wanted to let you know that the new bike was fabulous on PBP- I finished I with a few hours to spare but more importantly with much more sleep and time off bike enjoying the local scene than in 2007 when I did it last time! Attached photos include pre-ride shot with Chris Heg who was riding a bike of yours I think from 2009 or so. He also finished under-time and smiling. The disk brakes, wider tires, and stronger light all were great all around but especially for speedy night riding on those many winding hills.
I think there was a higher than expected DNF rate due to strong headwinds out (and crosswinds on return) - about 33% abandon rate among the the 63 seattle riders, so my hanging in there despite being among the older riders at 64 yrs is good testament to the bike (though I’ll take some credit too;)
It’s always a bit of a revelation how well my bike fits and handles.
