New Kuota KOM

Posted by Gale Bernhardt Mar 27, 2008

On Tuesday night, I picked up my new Kuota KOM from the bike shop. I've been waiting and waiting for everything to come together, and for this bike to arrive.

 

Finally!!!

 

 

My bike is the same model that is being used by the Agritubel team as their main workhorse. I'll get you a photo of "my" bike, but here is the team bike photo:

 

 

 

 

I was going to unveil the new ride report of some kind, but I couldn't wait. I was able to ride it a little yesterday, today we got snow. The time that I did ride yesterday was really sweet. The short of it is that I rode it for hill repeats on Old Stage Road outside of Boulder for a photo shoot.

 

 

Weighing in under 15 pounds with pedals and water bottle cages attached makes it one light climbing machine.

 

 

I'm chomping at the bit to go for a longer ride, but I may have to wait for several days. More bad weather is coming in and I have to have my bike fit dialed in by Roy at Peloton Cycles.

 

 

My husband made me move it out of the living room. He told me he was fairly certain it would be fine in the garage. How can he be so sure?

 

 

More gory details later and photos as well...
