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!

My Trek Emonda SL 6 Pro. Hard to tell it's actually dark blue and orange. I'd be riding it right now if I hadn't torn my ACL skiing last month!

Had the first race of the season on Sunday (season openers were actually in March, but my team hosts those so I never have time to race them), just a 7.25 mile TT.. Not my best showing but the season is looking up after taking last year off mostly.

My goal races are all in Late May - Late June it looks like, but they haven't announced the state championship crit yet.

At my age, I'm glad I can still ride 5 miles at a time.
(Mostly) Posted by Josh/AWE. Flapper valves are open at idle, close after 1100 RPM during part throttle. Full throttle 1st-4th gear the valves open until throttle let off. 4th gear, 1500 RPM to full throttle closed, closed until 3500 RPM, then open until lift off throttle.

2016 Norco Sight C7.2

I was looking at the 2017 units, but they sold out WAY too fast. I love the red of this thing though.
