New Baby

My darling wife surprised me out of the blue with this on Thursday:

That's right, a brand new Cervelo R3 with full Dura-Ace components. Weighs in at just over 16lbs I think.

Took out it for a spin in the park on Friday where I ran into Craig on his way out. Gorgeous bike, can't say enough about it.

Saw Mark while I was out for a run on Sunday, then Anthony mountain biking on Sunday. To top it all off I ran into Tanya on my ride home from work on Monday. Looks like the Big Ringers have thawed for the season.

Beautiful! You have the best wife ever.
Hope to see you soon, more than just a ride-by.

Sweet ride Peter. Having tested an R3 for a few days, I can attest to how nice it rides. Now, if only other Big Ring wives would follow this precedent!

Congratulations Peter! Pascal told me the story last night. I think this was a beautiful thing your wife did. This is one of the few carbon bikes I'd like to own. I think it is going to serve you very well, especially with some dreamy 27s or 28s! Hope to see it in action soon! Speaking of which, we're doing a Roubaix pre-ride on Sunday at 10 from the Arena, so you and the rest of the Ringers are invited to join.
