I have always been a racer man but don't cycle anymore
It is quite heavy, I can't deny that.. but that's more than made up by the fact that I barely feel a fairly large hole in our crappily maintained roads. It is comfortable.. still could do with a bit more padding on the saddle (or maybe I just need more on my backside ?) .. can never quite get it dead right.. I may have to go for a woman's wider saddle  But it's a world away from my last bike.. a rigid, Gary Fisher.
Only done about 25 miles on it so far.. so the brakes aren't near bedded in yet.. but they are still bloody good.
My god.. there's a name I haven't heard in years! Wasn't he the guy who'd broken loads of bones in his body and was a bit of a nutcase, into anything dangerous etc.. then he died in an accident or summink ? I'm sure I remember ages ago, they showed a picture of his legs and knees in MBUK and they were all bent and mangled from so many d/hill crashes etc.
