    New Sig - thanks to you guys :)

    Check it out!

    The only thing I have available to take pics with is a cellphone camera, which wouldn't do it justice...maybe I'll give it a shot a little later

    Welcome to the Cervelo family. *Sigh* Those colors would be better for my team kit...maybe I should trade up?? Now just cut that steerer tube about 50mm and you are in business! Sweet ride.

    That's why the seatpost is so wide. Though I think you have to drill it yourself.

    Oh... and drool, drool, drool.

    I talked to the fit guy for a while and we thought it would be better to start off at a fairly neutral starting position. If I felt uncomfortable they'd relax it a bit(which I won't do ), but as I got use to it, they'd start getting me more and more aggressively positioned.

    I know. It took me almost a year to get the fit where I wanted it, and I still may go with a stem that has a steeper angle. Still, you don't want to be upright on your $5k bling tt bike.

    Sweet.

    Are you going to spring for a disc right off, or do the wheel cover so you can run your PT?

    I want to borrow someone's disc first just to give it a feel, I'm probably just going to run the PT on it for a while with a carbone front...

    I just took it out for a spin...holy cow what a difference! I'm in love

    The seat doesn't look level. And those wheels don't seem aero enough for that bike. That's a bad ass ride though!!

    Boi-oi-oi-oing! You won't be disappointed! I'm loving my P2 but your ride is a step up. Post some more pics when you get it pimped with that wheelset.
