<p>So, I've had my new bike for about a month and I REALLY like her. Very comfortable, light, and rides like a dream. I can certainly tell the reduced road vibration even though I went to a much harder seat.</p>

<p>(thought JR might be able to tell me if this looks remotely like anything normal off the shelf - as I consider my next bike purchases... a new cross and mountain bike I'm likely not going custom <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad2.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""> no money for it!)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Immediate 5% power increase. I've PR'd the shit out of every loop I've done on training rides. Yeah... it'll do :D</p>
<p> </p>
<p>BUT... that's the problem.... "IT" will do? Crap I don't have a name!!!! I thought MAGS originally but now I'm not so sure. Doesn't feel right.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Any random thoughts?</p>

<p>Question from client (who just saw bike pic last week) - If you don't have a name, how do you know it's a "she"</p>
<p>Me: Cuz I sure the heck ain't riding no DUDE BIKE</p>
<p>Client Spits coffee half way across the room, including on me, her desk, her keyboard, her monitor</p>

Oh.  I thought the shot with the fans in the view was from home... I guess maybe it's from the bike shop.  Full disclosure, Vornado is a kick-arse brand of fans that create a tornado-like vortex/tunnel of wind.  Vortex + tornado = Vornado...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>But in the case of your bike, I'm thinking the V is more about velocity and riding like the wind.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Does that ruin it for you? </p>
