Legend Fedaia First Impressions

Been dreaming about this for 3 or 4 years.  Then last winter when descending from a local peak with my hands knotted in arthritic pain I decided I needed discs.  Marco Bertoletti makes steel road frames with discs (also carbon or titanium but out of my price range) so I ordered one.  The result exceeds all expectations.  Very comfortable, with no stem changes, steerer spacer stacks etc.  Marco is great to work with, like talking with another rider/mechanic, not a salesman.      

Anyway the ride today was a flattish loop to Cordenons and back.  Practiced di2 shifting: getting better but still mixing it up sometimes.  Also did the little climb up to Giais with some packages picked up at the post office.  This bike is a good climber.  Not sure how much heavier it is than the Maxima but it doesn't feel heavier at all.  Climbed up past the Royal like it was nothing.  Anyway more to come as we get familiarized.
