Love that switchback, get's the heart pumping.  No fun going downhill on it though.

How'd the ride home go, get a little perspiration going?

Definitely.  Had to stop and catch my breath at the top of the switchback and have NEVER been so happy to see a red light at the top of Rosslyn.  But I made it.   8)

I actually like going downhill on the switch, so long as I have it to myself and can swing out wide where I need to. 

MDS- steel frame over carbon fiber for strength?  I was actually thinking today about going really light - the idea being the less weight I'm pushing on the bike, the more power I can devote to pushing my fatass up that switchback.
