bike bike bike

Got new tires on the Ciocc (it was somewhat insane of me not to have done this the minute I got it) and took it out for its first spring ride, and my first purely recreational ride of the season. Went to the end of the bike path and back, in about 1:25 (no computer on the Ciocc yet), so averaging something like 16 mph. Tires are fast, and also look sharp! New seat sits lower on the rails than the old one did, so I stopped to raise it 8mm or so; I felt much less cramped on the bike once I did that. I still need a shorter stem, and the more I think about it the more I want 85 mm (+/-) and not 95 like I thought I might. Ebay, here I come.
