    So I've decided:

    With a different set of wheels, of course.

    We get a few Guru bikes coming thru our shop every so often. They're pretty sweet. That one kind of looks abstract the way the tubes are formed. I'd hit it. Why no Mavics?

    I'll probably put a set of Zipp 303's on there and use them for racing only. Whle Mavics are nice, stiff and strong, I'd rather save nearly a pound of rotational weight going the Zipp route.

    I'm not saying this to be an ass, which I am, but that's f'ugly.

    If you get it, cool, enjoy it to no end!

    Guru has their version of steel, yeah? Is that what this bike is? The tubes suggest Aluminum, but I'm an idiot, so there ya go.

    An ass and an idiot... Bud, we need to work on your self esteem!
    I'm in total disagreement w/ you tho about the bike. If someone threw it in my lap and said "hit it", and if school wasn't killing me, I'd be all over it like cum stains on a porn queen's plastic boobs. :oink:

    Edit: and if I didn't like it, I'd chop it up and part her out like a street hooker. Oh wait... :eek:

    No, this bike's carbon. Guru has a bike called the New Steel, which is a very nice bike.
