Going Aggressive

I went to the LBS today and had the super sweet sales man (same guy who hooked me up with my bike in the first place) there help me get in a more aggressive position. Don't get me wrong people, this isn't a real $100 -$200+ dollar fit with computers and stuff. But he does measure you up, test your flexibility and study you while you pedal.

This first pic of my position all last year. You will notice the stem angle is way up and the handle bars are above my seat.

This next picture is of the new aggressive set up. I mean WAY aggressive in comparison to my previous set up. We basically dropped the stem 24 degrees.
If you looked at the picture close enough, or read my last post, you will notice the addition of aero bars to the bike. Yep, those little doggies are on my bike, fit up (we moved the pads out and angled them slightly), wrapped w/S-Works bar tape and have a key piece of equipment mounted to them.

Now the bar tape isn't the straightest and isn't even, but for my first time wrapping any kind of bars I think I did a decent job.

I'm ready to begin the 2009 biking season with a purpose...break land speed records....NOT!

That's pretty exciting! I'm still looking for a bike...but addicted to the running at the moment.
I think I'm most apprehensive about getting a bike because I'm very cheap and don't want to feel obligated to upgrade all the parts and add aero bars. Instead, I'll live vicariously through you. Bring on the Wind Tunnel!

oooh i should tape my aerobars! You'll be hooked on tris before you know it!

good job! i would offer one peice of advice on your bar tape. it may work better for you if you start at the end of the bar and wrap towards the bike. your tape will last longer that way because it wont lift up at the edges from your weight pushing forward on it.
