Rode it home, got to a top speed of 45km/h but averaged 20.7.
First ever road bike, first ever time I have ridden one, will be getting clipless pedals at the 'first service.'
Love it so far!!!!
40kms to be done on Sunday morning......
Same as mine! Have fun with it.

You'd never guess that was a Fuji... Good thing it mentions that!
might even give Giant a run for their money
Only if it's branded on the inside of all four stays

There should be a direction arrow on the sidewall of the tyre, but generally speaking the centre of the tread/point of the arrow should hit the ground first and as the tyre rolls around it should pump the water out through the grooves. Wrong way around would have a mild effect of increasing the chances of aqua plane IMO.
Hope this helps

I've taken if 400km so far, added the rack, mudguards, lights and computer and have taken to commuting with it to and from work twice a week. I'm also constantly tweaking and fixing it as it slowly grinds itself into dust which has been a great learning experience for me (also I'm an engineer and enjoy tinkering with things).
Word of advise... That front light is obviously from Aldi... Don't get it wet!

I took all the running gear off my mountain bike that was a bit small for me.
PM me if you would like a GT Zaskar Expert frame and Recon Race fork.
Cool bike, something a little different. Like a lot.

Our first ever date was at yesterday's 'Hanover ConnectEast Ride for Home' event. Took part in the 75km Individual Challenge with 2 other riders. As the bike was unridden before the event I was hoping for a problem-free ride which I got. It rode flawlessly! I cannot fairly compare it to my previous bike as it was a BMX from about 10 years ago. It was honestly a little daunting riding in clips and a struggle to complete having not ridden at all up until yesterday. I had fun and managed an average of 23 km/h.

Cannondale Supersix 105
What year is that supersix? I really like the colour.
2011 model in raw carbon finish. Wheels are non standard as I picked up Ksyriums Equipe a while back. Should have gone the extra dollars and got the Elites
