OMGosh, dunno why i put off upgrading for so long! Gear changes are effortless (even with the downtube friction shifters) with almost no trimming now required and those wheels just roll on and on... Strava already shows there is a definate improvement with the uphill bits, so i can't wait to let it really rip on the flats & downhills.
so we've got another rider como-converted! welcome to the club.
just under 6700kms on mine
Woohoo! Scored 4 PR's and was 4 sec off setting a new KOM on the ride home according to strava. It'll be much easier to ride the 100km per week now my road bike has been fixed up, compared to chugging along on the mtb.
