yuze wuz rite

Postby thejester » Tue Mar 05, 2013 5:13 pm

I have to start by saying that I am a HUGE fan of flatbars. And a huger fan of Trek fx7.7 and Specialized Sirruses.
Mostly though I am the HUGEST fan of my beloved Giant CRX wot I have shared much pain :cry: , learning :o and generally really really good times with. :D :D

Unfortunately 2days ago the greatest deal of 2013 fell at my feet in the form of a 2013 Trek Madone 3.1 with about 150kms on the clock. Needless to say I bought it. After all, it is the same frame as the fx7.7 :twisted:

So YUZE WUZ RITE, eventually I bought a drop bar :P :oops:

yeah yeah pics will come, but I cant see the point, it looks just like the one on Trek website.

Wrong... I uprgraded it already... carbon seat post :D

C'mon it took 5years and the deal of the year.
The CRX is testament to my addiction however... wheels, cranks, pedals, seat post, grips, pulley wheels.. blah.. blah..

Good stuff - I have the same bike and can attest to it's general awesomeness. (I have a 2011 - came with a carbon seat post standard.) So, how good was the deal?

I too have a crx flat bar, I was a flat bar disciple.....until..... about 20 months ago the deal of my life, couldn't say no Giant tcr1 advanced fell at my feet. Haven't ridden the flat bar since but won't sell it, just in case! :D
