Buzzing pack of Carbon

A sound like no other... Carbon fibre bikes whizzing by at the highest speed the rider is capable of pushing it. The sound, and the sight, even if you don't like bikes (God help you) is mesmerizing. About an hour into the Bannock Street Crit I was convincing myself that I needed a Composite bike and that I needed to train to race. For those of you who know me, that should conjure up a grin. I'm not a racer. But that buzz made me salivate. It made me excited. It made me look again at race bikes. If any of you get a chance to visit a Criterium race, please do it. It is way more fun than any other road cycling event that I have experienced.

I never got it before... I never knew what the big deal about carbon was... then I rode a friend's carbon bike this weekend... until then I thought steel was a great ride...
