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.
