    Sweet Ride

    SMITHVILLE

    What I Like: Geometry, and relaxed position, then... Average speed

    What I Dislike: Grip shift ,(went to DA barcons)

    How I Ride: 3-4 days per week for average of about 160 km mix flat and rolling hills

    Responsive bike, fast and handles very well. There were a few things I personally need to change, but it was almost personal preferences that cause the change: swapped out the bars, and went to Dura-Ace bar-con gear levers, which I very much prefer over the Scram GripShift (most riders love GripShift). I also changed the triple rings to 28, 38, and 52, and the cassette to 11-26.
    If you cycle, then you know those are not huge changes. Overall, that 14-year-old bike is still always in front of the group pack. When i loan it, they either want to buy it, or they buy their own typically within a year.
