I had to go look at my shoes to see what size they are. They're in EU.

Specialized 44 is a 10.6...

If you haven't worn the tag off, you haven't ridden enough to earn new shoes.

You must've missed the part about me going from mountain pedals to road pedals.

I hate new bike shoes. Give me blisters until they're broken in.

Brought it home. Edit for better lighting. 

Weighs 24 lbs on the nose wit my cage and pedals. That's less than my single speed weighed. Still heavy. :(

what do you expect with 1kg of hybrid tires? heavy oem tubes? 

I sell the old bike after getting the new one and comparing weights on everything for swap outs.

Took the Wheelhouse to the RATL course for some laps around the lake. She's not as fast as the Trek, but the ease at which she soaks up the road is going to take some getting used to. I bet I wasn't going as slow as I thought, because the ride is that smooth. When I put it to the Trek, it would take off like a rocket. This bike is a bit different. It also steers slower, but that makes it awesome off-road. I road into the woods a bit and it just crawled around with no trouble. Very excited about that information. 

So, she's no racebike, but I think the road manners will make up for that. Definitely wish I hadn't sold the Trek. Lol

Edit: Also, the brakes are really starting to impress me. Now that I've got some time into the pads, they've quieted and have more bite. I did replace all four cables with stainless steel when I shortened the housings. I'm sure that was enough to make a difference in the braking.

Did 15+ mikes at Brady's run in PA (very close to PIRC), then washed the bike. 

Not a great race result, but it's hard to be upset about spending that much time on the bike and riding some great singletrack.

@motocat12, that sweet Reynolds made even sweeter with zee German tires. I was concerned I'd messed up by letting the Trek go. That is all behind me, now. :)

Scored a Louis Garneau Course road Helmet.  Supposed to be one of the top aero vented lids out. From the top view it looks solid. Also minimal mushrooming. Also, also, matches my frame.
