my vanilla rally bike - first test ride

after screwing up the chain installation Sunday, I managed to do a short ride Monday night on it -- it felt great. Handling was snappy, drivestrain felt pretty stiff, fit was good. I need more time in the saddle to see how I deal with the saddle to bar drop and the brooks swallow saddle I bought.
Bringing it to the bike shop Sunday to get the chain installed with a proper campy tool, the bike attracted a lot of attention, everyone was impressed. It definitely made the carbon bikes there look boring(well they are)
