My new ride!

For the first time in almost 20 years I have the chance to ride any bike I want to ride! This is something very new to me because I was always told what bike to ride by each team I was racing on. So just over a month ago I received a demo model of BMC's Teammachine SLR01 to try for a few weeks (Same bike George Hincapie and Cadel Evans of Team BMC are riding in the Tour de France). To be totally honest I wasn't sure what to expect when I got it, so to make a long story short... It was love at first ride! I'm not kidding! Fast, quick, stiff, light, looks sweet, and most of all it doesn't kick your ass over the miles. I'm in my late 30's and I really don't want to feel every single bump in the road when I'm on a stiff bike. BMC has made a bike that does everything a high-end bike should do. I will be posting a full review soon, but all I can say for now is thanks to CycleSports Bike shop of Doylestown, PA and BMC for getting me a bike that let's me fly!
