Nice bike, Alex. I bet your apartment is crammed full of crap.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Sweet bike, I recently bought a new bike, I was torn between a road bike or proper full suspension all mountain bike. Went with the fully as my hardtail is now on full time commuter duty. I've never ridden a road bike before, maybe if i sell the hardtail I'll get a single speed roadie.

A good roadbike is an awesome ride...so stiff and precise. You'll love it.

Ever see a cyclocross bike? They make perfect commuters. Very fast on the road, but can also go through hardpacked dirt if your butt can handle it.

I use my single speed as my commuter and love it (set it up with cross tires for the winter months). One Gear - One Love

And to stay on topic - Nice Felt...love that monocoque stuff!!

...but you've got to love the MOOOOOOOTTTSS (minus the cheap decals)!

It's has a steel spline and carbon cockpit. It's a super nice ride compared to my mountain bike turned hybrid. Actually, I was going to buy an intro. level giant for around $600 and my wife surprised me with the Lemond.
