I woke up this AM to 29° temps. I decided to use the thermometer function on my GPS just to get some
idea of the temp as I biked. I was concerned that the GPS might not reflect accurate temperatures
since it is mounted on the Bacchetta Monotube between my legs.

Since this was the Saturday before the Houston Marathon, we did the Marathon route.  It has become a
tradition with us to do this on the Saturday before the Marathon. Last year it was chilly and
raining, this year just down right cold. The Marathon route covers a wide swath of Houston from the
tawny Memorial residential areas to the seamy 5th Ward.

It was a great day. Cool crisp and relatively calm.  I expected a thin crowd at the ride start. I
was not disappointed, there were four of us
- 3 bents and one DF. Temp started out on my GPS with thermometer at 27 at the start near the bayou.
16 miles later we entered Memorial Park where it usually is a few degrees cooler at the Picnic
loop where many cyclists to 1 mile laps. The Picnic loop was deserted. We four were it!!.  It was
24° at the picnic loop and four miles later it was 33° downtown in the CBD at around 9AM. At our
Brunch stop at La Madeline, in Rice Village coffee was a welcome addition. By then it had warmed
up to 44. This was for me 36 miles into the ride and 10:30 AM. By the time I finished my 40 miles
things had warmed up to 47.

All in all, this was a good riding week for me. In spite of the cold Thursday and Friday, I managed
122 miles for the week. and I am off to a good start for the year.

I can't wait 'til next winter!

Cletus, Nice ride report. Hey come north and join us, right now the Temperature is 6 degrees down
from a high of 18 today. The Clear sky and light of the full moon on the snow is awesome. This
morning at 5:30 it was 7 below. Not too much riding here right now, too much salt on the road, the
road is white with it. It raises hell with bike parts. Then there's black ice, but thats for another
rant. Denny in Sayre, Pa

Well Cletus, I'm getting ready to go and connect with the HARDCORE DF group I usually ride with and
then trudge over to the Bacchetta Rally later on. It's a nice warm... 43 degrees at present, with
the wind chill factor of 38 degrees 8 mph wind out of the NNW and 88 % humidity. (One of those moist
chills, like Houston has all the time in Winter) WHY DO WE EXPOSE OUR RECUMBO SELVES TO THESE RIDING
CONDITIONS??? EZ Biker :) Pompano Beach, Fl. (GRR Ti & Tailwind Pilot)
PS: Got to do an early test ride of the B Aero and the B Giro yesterday. Now I understand why you
have so much FUN on your Giro. But am glad I have a fairing to use today, anyway! :) <Grin>

I ran the Marathon back in the late 80's. I come from the cold Philadelphia weather, and it was
about 70 degrees that day. Felt like a steambath. Still managed to break 3 hrs for the race though.
A very fond memory of your city. Also, after the race a few of us runners hobbled into Ruths Chris
for some very large steaks. Hopefully, some day i'll return for another try at it.

TOO LATE! I've already put my order in and will be waiting for my ceremonial robes, from the Temple
Of Bacchetta! (I've already owned a Vision R 40 and R 45 and the Bacchetta line of bikes, JUST WORK
and feel better to me) ALL the Bacchetta bikes are REALLY Wonderful and YES, there's a distinct
difference between the Aero and the GRR Ti. (The Aero's FASTER!) Do I mind that I might look geeky
on a SWB? NOT WHEN I'M EASILY ROLLING ALONG AT 25+ MPH AND NOT EVEN TRYING!!!

Folks, A group of us started out from Wycombe, PA at 9AM this morning - 13 degrees - road for 35
miles, warmed up to maybe 21. The Delaware River at New Hope was mostly frozen. Now that is a

EZ, It waz kkkkkkold here today 10 deg F when I got up at 6 am. Al rode his CORSA 26 miles to
check out his prototype headrest, it was in the mid 20's with a 15/20 mile wind. Al is hardcore. I
saw your Bacchetta worship pic. also there....is the new Velocity Wheelset that I've been selling
since before Christmas they are light and ride as nice as they look. Did you get an AERO or did
you order one?

Jude, I just put my order in for one. The next batch of Aero's won't be available until about April.
Yea, I got out in the early CHILL yesterday... BUT surprisingly alot of the really HARDCORE
Hammerheads that show up for the weekend ride were not there! I guess they really do have some
intelligence when it comes to being out in rough weather! After I get my Aero, I'm gonna look into a
HED rear disc and front HED 3 spoke rim and a Murray Crank as a few added tweaks. EZ Biker :)

EZ, I run the HED/HED3 on mine its a nice combo. I'm currently looking for a very lightweight set of
spoked wheels. I may also just get a HED3 for the rear. The new AERO's will have, I believe, the
Sparticus PRO Wheelset an upgrade from the standard Sparticus. I would have loved to get a set of
571 Rolf Prima Vigors or Elans however the are not making 571s yet. I've got them thinking about
it.... as does some manufacturers. They are trying to service the 700C/622 users first. I suggest
that you try to determine which stem and HB you want. There are two versions currently available. I
use the newer ones that bring the HB closer and are tighter in width at the grip end and also
shorter at the grips. In February if I get down there you can ride mine with the HEDs. I am 5' 10"
with a 43/44"X seam and a 30" inseam. I have my seat at a 29 degree recline.

ALRIGHT!!! Any early photo of your SWEET LOOKING Aero possible with that setup? I'm looking forward
to seeing you and at least getting to sit on your Aero! I'm 5.9 so your setup should fit me well.
I'm also flirting with a Murray crank stem. (Saw it on Pinto's aero and it looks to be a pretty good
aerodynamic plus, being that it's a flat shaped stem. I'll be in constant contact (Nagging) with the
Bacchetta people from here on out and will run your suggestions by them. Rich and John did spec me
out while sitting on John's Aero; so I believe they will get me dialed in, pretty good. EZ Biker :)

EZ, Murray crank stem? The mental image I get is of something that Vincent Price (or Jeff Goldblum)
tried to "transport" ;-) Can you describe it further or have a link to a pic? bill g

EZ, Tis a good thing that John fitted you out. I got on of if not the first production model. Rich
and I conversed on the day it was shipped mostly about the placement of the seat bracket and
gearing. It's really a delightful ride. I'm very happy with it. I'll have to look into the Murray
Crankset. There is a crop of aerodynamic carbon forks growing out there with tunnels and slots to
think about.
