Quite frankly, I get hyped up riding an elite late 1970's bike - sub 20 lbs. It's almost like the endorphins shoot into my brain before my first pedal stroke.
A Giant OCR3 would not cause this reaction, and I really do believe that I'm faster on an elite bike - from the modern (post-1960) era - compared to a low-end LBS bike - ANY low-end LBS bike ...
