    Coming soon to a race near you (excuse the excess glue, I rushed those for Gila):

    Wow.

    I'm a little surprised you couldn't find a rear derailleur with red accents.

    What's she weigh in at?

    I bet that is one nice bike. I will say (and prepare to duck as I do it) that no ridley has ever done it for me visually. I do want to put some time in the saddle on one...I have yet to ride a single ridley.

    Think of it like the WWE but on bikes; it's just a big show with real-live suffering and soul crushing.

    At the Spring Series I get to see a lot of bikes. Since it's one of the first races the bikes will see, they're new, beautiful, have the latest groups, the coolest parts, and they're everywhere. I rarely, and I mean rarely, walk up to someone and ask to check out their bike. Parlees with Record and Lightweights? There there and there. But when I saw a guy on that frame (it was blue - I can't even remember what group was on the bike, or even what wheels), I walked over. I'm usually a functional kind of guy, and I know that a top tube that isn't straight isn't necessary, but holy smokes the bike looked cool. All that swoopy doopy stuff is awesome.

    I took a lot of shots of it at Interbike last year too. I just loved the bike, the presentation, everything. Our team even had a Ridley team buy but I couldn't go in. I rarely "want" a bike, but I'd buy that one if I could.

    Effiing A. What a nice bike.

    The controls are Record, the rear is Chorus but is tweaked and lighter than stock record. Comes in just under 15 pounds. The cables you can get in blue and black.

    Still have the blue Noah BTW.

    No Lightweights? No SR11?

    I'm dissapointed in you.

    I love those frames though. Freaking gorgeous, and that seat mast is just sexy.

    Order. I don't know if anyone stocks, or if QBP or one of the other big catalog distributors carry them.

    Sadly, I think I would probably knock my teeth out with my knee caps if I tried to ride Ex's rig.

    Hi Mr. Ex,

    When are you going to spring for a good bike? <JK>

    I am a big fan of red bikes and that one looks great -- even though it is more black than red.
    Thanks.

    I think I am truly the odd man out and may have "bad taste" by most rider's standards. I can never get into the curvy lines on the Ridleys, Specialized, Willier, Pinarello, etc. I find the basic IF or Parlee or Look to be the most aesthetically pleasing.

    On another note, I am very interested in the bike in terms of performance. I don't suppose you got a frame weight did you? Also I know you have owned a number of high end race bikes; how does this compare in terms of performance? What aspects does it excel at and where is it lacking. Just curious. The shop I work for sells look, ridley, and parlee for the high end carbon bikes and I've always been curious about ridley.

    Well I guess if you're in to that kind of thing it's kind of good looking.

    I am in N. TX, so I can be there for the garage sale.
