I rode 60 miles before lunch today. Very little neck discomfort and I never had to stop for an adjustment! The bike shifts great and handles like a dream. The bike is also a climber. It's going to take some time getting used to the compact gearing after using a triple for all these years. With the pedals the bike weighs in at a respectable 15.4lbs. I did make a mistake with the matte clear coat. It shows every fingerprint and sports drink drip. Fortunately I don't see anything while I ride:) I have waited a long time for this bike. I am very pleased with my bike and the entire process. Thank you for a great experience.

SO GREAT!!! I love love love my new wheels. We did the 75 mile ride again on Sunday and it was just like a different, far more fulfilling experience :) Obviously it's my own physical capacity that actually gets me through those rides (or doesn't) so it's not like "easy" on the new wheels, it just feels like a smoother and more productive use of my energy. Plus they look so hot!! Can't wait to put them to use in my triathlon in Minneapolis this weekend, I know I'm gonna love it. Thanks so much for your great advice and education!! I'll be back in soon!

Hey guys, I hope the Chicago summer is treating you nicely and you are getting some good riding in. I have to thank you guys cause I absolutely love riding this bike. It just wants to go fast which is great cause well I like to go fast. Michael, it feels similar to when I went from driving the 95' Impala to the WRX. Adam, you were right it handles wonderfully down hills and through the turns. The fit is great. It feels really comfortable. I have been getting out for at least 2 rides during the week (usually round 30-35kms). I went out for a longer 90km ride last weekend and it was great. I didn't have any problems with any aches or pains outside of normal fatigue. I have put the shims in under the cleats and that seems to have eliminated any pain or aches I had in my knees. So yea overall I am really enjoying it. It has given me a bit more confidence to push my cycling to another level and I know it has made a few of my friends just a little jealous. Thanks guys.

By the way, over the past few weeks I've had a chance to do some longer rides on my IF. You did a fantastic job with the fitting, new parts, and overhaul. The bike is very comfortable and rides like a brand new bike. Thanks again for everything. It was a great experience.

Hey Adam, Just wanted to let you know that I did 50 miles yesterday and I felt great. I definetely noticed the difference (more speed and less effort)....I averaged 23m/hr, which was lot faster than my previous rides (~19.5m/hr). I will be reaching out to you after the race so we can put a plan together for a new bike. Thanks again for all your work. Regards, Luiz

I just wanted to say that the fit on my bike felt great in today's race (USAT Duathlon Nationals) in hilly Oro Valley, Az. I got strep throat this week and participating was up in the air. I got 8th in my age group (30-34) and qualified for Team USA for the Age Group World Championships in Nancy, France in September. I've only ridden indoors this year and this race was my first outdoor ride, but the fit felt awesome. I was able to put out more power with zero back pain on a hilly and hot course. This was my first duathlon and just wanted to say thanks for the awesome fit! Bobby Atkins

Hey Guys, I just had to say thank you one more time. Your help, understanding and professionalism was outstanding today and went well above and beyond what I ever expected. It really was a pleasure doing business with you all today and I will most definitely be back to your shops as well as referring as many of my friends as is possible. Again, a most sincere thank you!

Thank you for the email to inquire about the new Serotta. To quote you, "I was blown away by the Meivici". You were absolutely right in many areas. First, the carbon fiber is very forgiving in terms of road shock yet still a very solid and firm ride. Second, the bike climbs much better as it is nimble and transfers power extemely well. Finally and most important of all, the fit is PERFECT. The best have ever felt on a bike in over 25 years of cycling. Your talent and expertise as a master fitter was evident in how you were able to tweak my fit on old bike and how you precisely measured and fit me on the new Serotta. Feels more effective to be over the pedals more and am much less cramped. Also, no longer squirming in the saddle trying to be comfortable. Adam, I sincerely appreciate all you time, effort and patience. LOVE THE NEW BIKE and thank you for doing a great job with paint scheme.
Have and will continue to give you my highest recommendation for bike fit and bike maintenance.

Gentlemen I have wear on the tires and dust on the frame. It just felt perfect. Aggressive where I want it, stable when its necessary. The disadvantages of this light 29” are pretty minimal, compared with my super nimble Rocky Mountain. The advantages on the other hand are clear. On those big wheels it’s like all obstacles have decreased in height overnight. You were right, that 62 cm top tube fits perfectly. Pressure on my hands and wrists is significantly lower. The bike is so outrageously cool looking. And the built couldn’t have been better. Thanks a million for your perseverance in this long process. It was worth the wait, definitely.

Adam: Thanks again for all of your help the other day. The fitting session went even better than I thought it would. I was able to use your notes to dial in my road bike with no problems. The crank arms were the right length, as was the top tube, and all the measurements were easy to calibrate. But here's the question: Did it make a difference on my century ride today? Ummm, wow! I feel like a whole new biker. I was easily keeping pace with groups that would have previously dropped me like a rock, and completed my first sub-five hour century. What amazed me is how fresh I felt at four hours. I would never have guessed that a fit could make that much of difference. You can definitely add me to the long list of people who think you guys do a terrific job. Thanks again, Joe Studer
