New bike to start the season

I guess it's time to start blogging again. I'll start off with my purchase for the 2011 race season. Thanks to Rassy's for the sponsorship. They really get behind the sport.

2011 Salsa El Mariachi Ti
Reba fork with remote lockout
Salsa carbon bar
Salsa stem
Roval wheels
Fifteen G 34t crankset
Sram 990 11-34t cassette
Elixir brakes with carbon levers

I need to get it on a scale, but it appears to be near 22.5lbs with pedals. I'm looking at upgrading the seat and post and maybe lighter pedals.

Go for the Eriksen Ti seatpost! It would look great and they are very comfy. I am very happy with mine.
