New Keo Classics and fired up the old Giro road shoes. I'm not climbing the Skyway in 2-bolt cleats. Got a new LG X-Lite helmet, which is awesome. I love Nashbar's random sales.
Took the bikes up OH-88 to Asbury Rd. for some hill work. The Wheelhouse outclimbs the Trek, hands down. It's not really faster, but it's so stable that climbing is just easier. Standing out of the saddle is easier. Getting back on the saddle is easier. It's just stiff as hell when I put the gas to it, too. The shitty crankset deflects, but the frame is solid. The brakes are awesome. I trust them wholly to do their job when it matters. That's a big plus for me. I like descending as fast as my nerves will let me and knowing I have quality binders gives me more confidence to hang it out. The tapered fork and thru-axles are uber nice in the corners. I can't wait to drop down the Skyway on this smooth beauty.
...I mean, if I make it to the top.
