I took the Addict out for a real ride the other night and did a lot of climbing with it. I’m not sure if its the frame, the wheels, the bike setup, or the fact that I’ve gained too much weight over the Thanksgiving weekend but the ride was SMOOOTH. It was smooth and swift. I didn’t feel the solid and instantaneous handling characteristics of my Supersix but it was quick Enough and it muted road vibrations very well. I’m also not sure if I’ve made myself weaker but I really prefer a compact crankset if the ride is a hilly one.
The ride wasn’t all smooth though. I had to ditch one of the climbs and turned around because I was greeted by a pack of about 5 coyotes just walking across the street. If you look closely you can see one of them dogging me at the middle of the road under the street lamps.
