13 year old Zak's dream come true

On this morning's group ride I momentarily passed through a temporal vortex, similar to the one encountered by the crew of the USS Enterprise-E. And, just as the crew of the Enterprise met their hero, Zephram Cochran on that journey, I too met my hero.

Ever since I was in the 8th grade I wanted a Specialized FSR with aero bars. And today I passed an older gentleman riding a 1998 Specialized Ground Control FSR with a set of clip-on aero bars. He was in a boardwalk tuck, those nash-bars at 45-degrees and my heart fluttered with admiration and envy.
