'Steel for Real'

The new bike has been ordered.  No more plastic bikes for this FatGuy.  I opted for a local brand, Breezer, and their steel model, The Venturi.  Breezer is better known for their mountain bikes.  But I have heard good things about the road bike, and their attention to detail in the construction and geometry.  Also, I opted for the upgrade to full Ultegra.  I have come a long way from the $550 internet bike days.  Stay tuned.

As an aside, Joe Breezer is a Marin guy, and a founding father of Tam.  And Joe blasted past me a few times during the Dirt Fondo. I like the Marin County connection on this bike and hope to serve its namesake proud.
