I rode the Bianchi with the new Stem, bars, and tape and it felt great. Originally, I was going to ride in fixed gear but after Thursday's seat post fiasco I went back to the freewheel. The hardest climb with 44x17 gearing was the hill on Poor House.
I thought I was going to burn up on the ride home because the temperature when I left the office was 35 degrees. I wore the bare minimum but I still had to wear the lobsters.
Got some slack chain when I got home.
And surprise delivery!
