Did some training while testing out bikes. I like to test on hills to see what it feels like to push really hard. Ended up getting the Trek ALR with Shimano 105 gear set. I was fresher for the hill with the Tiagro gearset the first two times up the hill. Switching to the 105 showed that there was enough difference in hitting the hill that I changed my mind and spent the bucks. The sweet red color is not mine now – it’s now shiny black (with snot green lettering – who made that decision?).
