So yesterday I rode to Boulder to work (commuted) and rode a long way home. Had to re-test out how my nice 15 pound bike would hold up to a 5 pound rear trunk bag, and 3 pound handle bar bag, 2 full water bottles, three front lights (thanks Cat Eye), three rear red lights (again, thanks Cat Eye), and a few other changes to turn a racing bike in to a temporary Brevet bike.
Well. All went well except my T-bar that holds the front lights wouldn't stay tight. Have to work on that. If I have to get the duct tape out, I will.
ALl in all the bike handled so well. I love it.
