    Just to clarify, I don't actually have the bike yet. I just had to get in on the "photos of bikes you've ordered" vibe! This was a test ride of a 56 (I ordered a 54).

    Agreed! I thought the brakes were awesome, and the super compact drop bars worked great with the hoods. They almost seemed like barends or bullhorns (which works great for SS I think).

    Accotink is relatively tame but parts of Wakefield will be rough on a CX bike. Personally I like a CX bike more especially for the winters, but wouldn't ride parts of Wakefield on it. More...

    Pretty sure you can hit 1000W - even I can hit that.

    I often assume at shorter durations the accuracy of the power number is lower anyhow, although don't know if that's actually true.

    Yeah if only I had (a lot) more paid time off, I would seriously consider more bike-related trips (not just touring). But as it is, I prioritize family vacations (happily).

    Agreed. I also wish it was more commonplace for people in general to go [bike] touring. It's probably not something that occurs to that many people, or if it does it's viewed as more extreme. (That...
