    sticking with my surly lht as my main daily ride because it's pretty fucking awesome, solid, and reliable. but i'm looking to get a new road bike for group rides and some other rides with a few friends. not looking to get anything extravagant but i want something legit. the cannondale caad 10 seems to be the best of everything at a really reasonable price. thinking of going with the shimano 105 groupset. thoughts from bike faigs? (other groupsets include sram rival, force, and shimano ultegra).

    Cannondale are some of the best bikes in the world. Expensive so shop around.

    this one is super reasonable and it gets amazing reviews. it almost seems too good to be true, but it consistently is rated among the top. it has an aluminum frame that is lighter than a lot of other companies' carbon fiber frames. and for whatever reason, the 105 groupset model gets the best ratings out of all of the caad 10's, even better than more expensive groupsets.

    last year's model was completely blacked out, which was tits. i dig the white graphics though. and for once cannondale didn't go suuuuuuuper crazy with the graphics.

    it's taken off like crazy, bro. when i invented faggit, it took a while to catch on. now it's the defacto spelling. same when i invented hilarry. or reggie. this is the next big thing.

    the stock seat sucks, but that's pretty much what any road bike seat would look like, generally speaking. you sit on your sit bones in your butt, not on your prostate or nutsack, so it's pretty alright. but it still puts some pressure on your perineum, which ain't the best. kids are over-rated though, so that doesn't bug me. as long as i can keep a boner i'm ok.

    that said...did anyone ever come through with online viagra sites for me? wokka wokka wokka!
