I can already feel my muscles and body acclimating to the raptobike position. Today my average climbing speed was up 10% over my test commute yesterday. It is still 8% lower than my Corsa average climbing but I am very pleased. Once the new seat arrives I will start using the Raptobike on my longer 26 mile commute route.
I know that some of my excitement must be that new bike smell, the joy of a wonderful new ride. But I am pleased with my bike in a way that hasn't happened for me in quite a while. My last four bikes didn't get me this excited.
