Yeah, i like that. No idea how they do it, but it’s not flash.
Easy to jump around between models too. Although one word of frustration — shopping for a real road bike is HARD. Every company has a few different “lines” and each one has a bunch of different models, and the features and components overlap in weird ways that are different from manufacturer to manufacturer, and only a few companies list prices on their websites, and the sales staff in bike shops are not nearly as knowledgeable as legend would indicate.
I wanted a fast road bike with rack/fender mount points, and it took me weeks of research, the accumulation of a half dozen catalogs (which the shops are not that eager to give out), visits to I think in the end 8 dealers, and countless hours poring over websites. No fun, but the end result was thank god a good deal on a great bike.
