    The following post from the EasyRacers Forum sums up my experience. Two = separate times I test rode
    a dealer's Aero and Vision R-65 and each = time immediately afterwards I rode my own Ti Rush on the
    same Pinellas = Trail test route. The Rush "won" both times. However, I do not know = how I'd feel
    after the "30-day test" in which you ride only the new = bike, in this case an Aero or R-65 for 30
    days. When I went from a = P-38 XT to a GRR, it took me 30 days of riding the GRR exclusively =
    before I concluded the GRR was the "best" bike for me. --=20 Gator Bob Siegel EasyRacers Ti Rush

    Post from easy racers Forum:

    Please, forgive this if you find it banal; but I just have to share how = incredibly happy I am with
    my new Fold Rush. I am not quite as fast on = it as I am on my Bacchetta Aero, but I love riding it
    a lot more, feel = more secure, visible in traffic, comfortable, happy. I frequently ride = with a
    big grin on my face. With it stripped of fairing, I am currently = doing hill repeats on it at about
    the speed I was doing on my 17 lb. = roadbike last summer. Certainly when the grade gets over 12% or
    so, it = bogs down, but it generally climbs a LOT faster than it ought to, just = looking at it, and
    weighing it. Of course, speed on the flats is again, = a lot faster than it ought to be, just
    looking at it. And I don't have = to say anything about descending, do I? It's just an amazing,
    magical = bike.=20

    Gator Bob, Didn't you ride a P-38 before? If so, where does that fit in? --Bob Bryant
