You're the type of rider who is likely to pin a number on for a local criterium, but you still want to feel fast. If you head to an event, it's about the adventure, the exploration of new roads, or the distance you're traveling.
When you're on the bike, you are willing to offer up the needed whip-fast handling of a race bike for some predictability and stability while leaning over in the twisty and often rough corners of the backroads. You want a bike that you can still sprint out of a corner, which feels good when you get on the throttle and leave it wide open.
Talking about those twisty and often rough corners, you don't want to end your ride early because every bump you hit feels like a sledgehammer to your sit bones. You want a bike that provides compliance in the frame and then lets you fine-tune how much cushion you need with tire size. Since the Caledonia is designed around a 30mm tire, you'll have smooth roads ahead.
