Pardon me my showing off, but finally my new Trek 5000 got delivered. :happy: I had to order it from the US, because they only have frame size 58 available in Japan. What can I say... feels like Christmas, Easter and oshogatsu at the same time! What a nice piece of bike technology... I tested it throughout this week, and I am very content. It's light (particularly compared to my Focus CB), fast as hell, and its carbon frame absorbs shocks smoothly. I am still using old Shimano M324 pedals, but will replace them with the R540 tomorrow. The Bontrager saddle looks quite bulky, but pleases my rear end. What a quantum leap!
