Bikes and Bikes

I recently bit the bullet and ordered a Cannondale - it's cool, it's only been about a year since I started here. Since I was riding smaller brand bikes instead of competitors - I usually commute in on my Salsa Chili Con Crosso cross bike - it wasn't too much of a problem. The cross bike works alright for road rides, but for a while now I've wanted to replace the Blue RC6 road frame that I cracked in Asheville. After several months of commuting, I cashed in my commuter points (which count as $$$ toward employee purchases) and managed to cover much of the cost of the Women's Supersix Evo with Di2. It's just plain silly.

I'm not much of one for some women's cycling products, but I was awkwardly positioned between a 50 and 52 in the men's bikes, and the size 54 women's Evo has indeed turned out to be a good fit. I'll take it!

Obviously it's not dialed yet - I basically just pulled it out of the box two days ago and took off - but this is the 'before' shot. I'm going to paint the frame and fork in our paint booth once I get the artwork for it done. The graphics on it are not mine, btw. They were done by a woman who worked here before my time.

Always desperate to be 'different', I did make a quick adjustment as a placeholder, though.

That sticker and many other charming ones available from All Hail the Black Market, should you be interested.

With Rolex participating as a YouTube replica watches sale advertiser, it will no doubt be a signal to other high-end watch brands that doing so is an appropriate or perhaps wise idea. The wrist watch replica watches sale industry to a large degree has a "follow the leader" type of culture. Second, it acts as supporting measure to further legitimize the internet as a prime luxury advertising destination. This is not the first time Rolex has rolex replica sale engaged in an internet advertising campaign, but such a potentially widespread campaign on YouTube will attract the attention of many consumer and Rolex competitors. It also helps defeat the concept that "if we don't sell online, why should be advertise audemars piguet replica online." Many luxury and watch brands do not sell over the internet at this time for a variety of reasons. They use this swiss replica watches fact as a reason when citing why they don't participate in internet advertising campaigns.
