The new hotness




The new hotness





So I took the hotness out for its first outing today and I have to say it is a very different ride from my old hybrid. Very much like moving from a comfy sedan to a high performance but tempremental sports car. It is stupidly light and nimble, but the aluminum/carbon fiber frame means that you feel every pebble on the road. The single speed felt surprisingly good on the Manhattan bridge uphill (no doubt because of the lightness of the frame) but at the end of the day when I got home I could definitely feel the extra exertion in the legs. Overall... I like.....a lot.
