Here is mine before the wheelset came in for it. I have not been able to get any pictures of it since it was finished due to health issues.

Well didn't actually buy it but this was the frame Trek used as a warranty replacement a few months ago. I snapped the frame on my Tourmalet so they upgraded the frame to the 'Chambery'. Tourmalet was all aluminum, this one is 3/4 carbon fiber. I think I made out on the deal. Trek also thru in the fork (beefier) which is unusual in warranty cases.

So it was FREEEEEEEEEEEE!

Bought the frame on Ebay and built it up. Finished about 3 weeks ago. Been wantinig a Pinarello Steel frame so this is perfect for me.

BTW, gonna start spending more time in the Clydes section as I think this should be my new home instead of the road forum. Lost 35 pounds so far, but still 245, so I'm firmly in Clyde territory.

Here's my new Monocog 29er. Dirt drop bars and a Tommicog are the only changes so far. I ordered a Brooks B-17 for it, still waiting though. I will tape the bars up shortly. I was still dialing in the position, so I just slipped some grips on the end of the bars.

I got a steal (~$1000 complete with ultegra/duraace mix) on a used Cervelo Soloist Team over the winter, and as soon as I get pedals and new clyde-worthy wheels I'll post

Looks like just a very tall bike.

Not "New", so much. But it is newly built-up, and new to me.

Slightly OT - how do you like that Nashbar trunk? I've been thinking of getting one, but the only review I've seen was less than positive, so to speak .
