Just in time

I had planned to go down to Hellyer for the Ready to Race clinic, but was concerned about the smoke in the air down there.  I woke up to rain, which is just what we need to help with the fire, but not great for riding, so I decided to move all my components from my Ridley to my new Tarmac.  I had never done this before, so doing so the day before a big race probably not the best idea in the world.  My teammate John said it took him about 1.5 hours to move his components over, so how long could it take me?
It took me a lot longer than that, and longer than I expected, but I was able to get it together and get in a ride to test it out before the sun set.

Just under 15 pounds with Williams 19 clinchers.

Can't wait to race it tomorrow!

So, how did it all turn out?

We'll have to coordinate heading down to Hellyer on Tuesdays.

The bike seems to climb real well, but it can't sprint.
