so yeah, i rode road bikes this morning. but not just any road bikes. bikes outfitted with both new Sram gruppos. the first was an Orbea with Sram Rival (Ultegra equivalant). the shifting is amazing. one lever behind the brake lever, click it once to upshift and push it a bit further to click twice and it down shifts. however this works it allows the design if the brakes to be unbeleivably responsive. i was bombing down belmont ave with one of the sram guys and hit the brakes. it was like the braking performance of a mountain bike. absolutely amazing!

but the morning got better. i got to ride up the wall one a new Cannondale System Six with Sram Force (Dura-Ace equivalant). before pedals, the bike weighed in at 14.5 lbs. this thing is soooo smooth and stiff its crazy. i took some pics of it while it was in the shop. once my camera stops acting like a little *****, i'll post some pics

heres a link on the force group:
