    Welcome Anna May

    While I know we have a 'show us your bikes thread', I was lucky enough to get a little professional introduction to my new bike and thought I would share.

    I am racing with the Rock and Road Cycle Race team next year and got hooked up by the Shop (owners name is Scott) and Scott bikes (yes its confusing) for my new, all purpose rig that I'll be doing some endurance events on next year (like Breck Epic). I heard the bike was in Bracebridge late last week, but not sure when it would get into the shop.

    One of the guys on the team is the mastermind behind Big Ring Entertainment and decided that my bike would be good for a fun little video. So they didn't tell me it was in and went to work.

    Here is the end product. And I'm going to get my bike today! Big thanks To Scott and Rock and Road, Scott Bikes and Big Ring Entertainment (Adrian) and extensive help from Blaine.

    That's a very nice ride. Not everyday you get your bike acquisition nicely documented. Congrats on it and hope it serves you well in your races.

    you are NOT really going to ride that bike in this weather, are you? (It might be a little difficult waiting until all the snow is gone.) Lucky you.

    This bike will not get ridden until Spring! Well maybe if we got some supper first snow conditions (or a thaw and re-freeze).

    And BCD, the bike was in Burlington (distributor is bracebridge).

    Ah!...I knew there was a new shop in BB on Manitoba St opened this year or last that I haven't been into yet....caters more to the road/tri crowd. Is that the distributor you refer to, or is it Muskoka Outfitters?

    Bigger legs = less gears.
