Epic Bump ^

I have two mountain bikes but never got into road biking

'15 Spec Camber

Comfortable, flies downhill, but harder to pedal

'13 Niner Air 9 RDO

Really light, easy climbing, really sensitive

I am a road rider mainly, in that I currently don't own a mountain or cross bike. I race crits/road/TT (and cross whenever I can borrow a bike), and I am also a bike mechanic by trade.

Right now, my main ride is a Transonic (team bike sort of). Here is what it looked like when I first built it with Chorus:

After a few weeks of riding it, I remembered that I much prefer Sram, so I rebuilt it. I also redid my fit to be much better at this point:

But of course, right now its mounted to the trainer for winter. I also have a Giant Defy that I rode across the country almost 5 years ago, that will be built into a single speed/beater when I get the motivation.

I am hoping to replace the transonic with something else soon.

Specialized Camber Comp 29. Came from a Trek Top Fuel 8 that I rode for 5 years. Love this specialized!
