rode an expensive road bike with electric shifting today.
and it was bloody awesome like this one (but with dura ace/american classic wheels/easton carbon bar stem) http://www.bikescene.co.uk/i_up/SWorksRoubaixSL3Ultegra_1371220683.jpg
actually rode my bike for the first time in god knows how long to my fav bike shop (hadn't been there for 4 months).
was talking about road bikes (and how i cannot afford one e.t.c when the manager mentioned he had the new dura ace electric groupset
fitted to his new s works roubaix,he asked if i'd like a quick spin on it.no that's alright i said (sod that yes was the answer
just had a quick pootle on it down a side road by the shop.man the electric shifting is fantastic (i didn't understand the point of it up till now).also was gobsmacked by the dura ace brakes too they felt better than my avid 3 on my duster
the whole bike was lovely to ride and i can now totally understand why they cost so much (it felt a whole other world to my tarmac sport i used to have).
the one big downside is i had to give it back no way in hell i could ever afford one atm.
am now seriously thinking of starting the lottery every week
p.s i sold my tarmac sport bike last year to fund a guitar (i do miss it s it was a great road bike).i do plan on saving for another road bike someday though.
