    First Roadie….

    Not sure if this is legit on MTBR but I’m going to pick up my first road bike later today and the third specialized in my stable. The guy who owns my LBS just got 2010 Madone and is selling me his 09 Tarmac. I should have picks up later.

    Edit:
    Well I said 09 but it’s actually a 2010 frame set with all older dura-ace and it’s a rocket.






    As you can see we are remodeling our house so never mind the old backer board in the background.

    You'd be surprised how strong you get in the dirt from riding the road. Not so much with the short burst climbs that you see on many trails, but long climbs where you're spinning along are where I see most of the change.

    Welcome to road biking!
