That is very special! Rarely get excited about modern bikes, that however I like.

Assume from your jersey cycle fit did the measurements? Did they change your position much?

I will be riding the Etape again...and the Marmotte - just can't get enough of those stupidly long hard climbs! :) Then probably some stuff in Italy at the end of the season as well.

Cyclefit fitting was a revelation - had been riding around on what I thought was a perfectly fine Cannondale Six13 before that. Lovely bike, but the position was wrong wrong wrong.

Cyclefit did the measuring and rig bit and then the frame was built around my dimensions. First ride - awesome...!

I've got a GPM Glider from them as well - which I spend most of my time on the road on as my training bike. And now and then I get to thinking why the Serotta cost so much more than the Glider....and then I get back on the Serotta and its a world apart.

Just never going into Cyclefit with my RC300 as don't want them telling me its the wrong position as well - although Serotta MTBs do look nice ;)

:lol: Good luck finding an older road bike to fit like that one too ;)

Wouldn't mind giving cyclefit a go. Probably not worth it given they'd say my position was all wrong.
