The new ride
« on: August 05, 2009, 09:28:38 PM »
Decided to buy a complete bike as opposed to taking the next six or so months to build my own.  Got a smoking deal on this 09 GF Paragon at Bike Works.  Pretty light and handles great...pretty much everything I love about my Monocog only with a suspension fork and gear selection.  Need to ditch the seat and I may look at putting a different bar on it to tweak my riding position (it currently has a zero rise with a rediculous amount of sweep). 
 


 
It even matches my wife's car (awwwww):

Was that U hanging a U-turn at Morris Bridge and I-75 around 6 tonite? That Bike/Car tandem looks very familiar :)

That was me.  Normally I wait like anyone else, but the line coming off the exit to head e/b was rediculous.

Alan, you looking to stay Flat on the bars? I have a 09' Easton EC90 560mm 120g 3degree Carbon Bar. I only used the bar for 4 months, it's in excellent Cond.

The bar is all yours. I am going to try something with a small amount of rise.
