    Isn't it nice to leave academia, have a 'real job' now and be able to buy nice things for yourself?

    thanks. i'm using the long battery mount, so the battery isn't actually dangling, though it certainly looks that way. It goes, saddle mount for the bottle cage, top part of the battery mount, and the bottle cage. The battery mount is bent it so that it would fit behind the seatpost.

    nice plasma. there was a special seat mount that shimano had--can't recall the part # off the top of my head. you could probably chop it and tape it under the saddle-- i think it would work great and be a bit faster.

    hope you have many fast rides with it!

    new stem and bumped the seat forward. need to raise it again, but I forgot to do it at home and no torque wrench at work means no fiddling with the foil seatpost clamp. position is closer to the myerson rig posted a little back. dropped stem the last 5mm spacer and went from -17 to -30.

    I'd say get a 58, but I don't think the seatpost would have enough length.

    it's a 130mm stem. longer I think would start to affect handling negatively? I dunno.

    Forgot about your condor wingspan. Seems like your ideal frame would have a slightly shorter head tube and slightly steeper seat angle. You just need to drive down to Morgan Hill and get one of the Boonen pro Venge models.

    RIP my Militis 3 - 2012 to 2014... went from 3->1 on it though!

    Crack in the downtube from Cascade 2013 was extended and became too much to ride on after my big crash last month.

    Switching to an older Raleigh frame I have lying around until I can figure something out. Friend has a Tarmac I can have but it's a size too big..

    Oh and the wheels have both been crash-replaced, and now I need to re-replace the front one! Way too much crash.

    Yeah, it's an option. Just that it takes a lot of work! (shipping, waiting, paying, etc)

    Too lazy, don't want to wait weeks. Wah, etc.

    Plus, there is no winter here. =]

    I had mine done at Spyder Composites in Campbell. It was like $200?? Turn around was about 2 weeks with Shipping. I've heard good things from others about them and so far the repair seems good.

    frank can meet you up in downtown Los Gatos. I'm sure he can get it done within a week if you ask him.

    Frank has done a frame of mine plus 2 others I sent in. The quality of the work is amazing and the price is right (esp with the paint for free)....but "I'm sure he can get it done in a week" is not something you'd hear me say. If one needs that service, make sure you get him to commit. 6-8 weeks with NO communication at all during that time is what I would tell someone. I would still recommend him, though.

    i had 2 repairs done by frank both were complete within 5 days. maybe because i'm local?

    and to keep my posts relevant... won't be able to glue this back together if something happens =*(

    could be. main thing for me was not so much speed as quality of work, and the quality was impeccable. shipping the bike takes 2 days from him to me, so in theory that shouldn't add much time....but i have no idea how he runs his business.

    i really like that he does free repairs for juniors with a USAC license. when i have corresponded with him, it's been great--but it has been super difficult to find out what is up. the first time i wanted to make sure he got the frame (there was no acknowledgement after he had the frame for 2 weeks....and it just said "package left at door" on the shipping status), and no status along the way until ~5-6 weeks later i got a paypal invoice. now i know that is how he -- at least sometimes
    -- operates, so i don't sweat it.

    the first time i sent a multi-thousand dollar frame to a guy who runs a business from his house, though, it was interesting. lack of communication didn't help matters. seems to be a somewhat common complaint with him, so it's not just me.

    What size are you looking for? I will probably have a size 54 2010 s-works tarmac frame to go in a month or so. Very, very nice bike. This color frame.

    On a 55 now, the Tarmac my bud has is a 56.

    So yours would probably work, even if it's a bit old. But really I'm trying to hold off on paying any money for something I'll end up crashing! Thanks though.

    Sure, well, lmk if anything changes. It wouldn't be free, but I'd be happy to make a friendly deal for an e-friend.
