Today was the Parlee's first ride. It was as awesome as I expected, SRAM Red shifting was smooth and perfect. I definitely got pushed around by the wind though, just need to get used to the carbon rims and the feel of the bike. When I sprinted, it was sooo fast. One word to sum it up...SNAPPY.
So, here are the results: Set a new PR on Old Mill West...by 40 seconds!!! Since my previous PR was 5:10, and today I did it in 4:30, this was a 12.9% improvement!! And to be honest, I'm not in as good of shape as I was with my previous PR. So, in my case, this is definitely "about the bike!"
Parlee's aura spread to Ryan, as he also set a PR on OMW by 25 seconds!!!
