    I picked up this 2008 tarmac comp on clearance from my LBS for $1600 out the door.

    looks fast... although I still think the compact geo looks a little funny on a road bike... makes it look so MTBish t ome with all that seatpost showing

    Took for a nice 25 mile ride today, lots of rolling hills, averaged 18.2 mph.

    Awesome rig!

    The titanium cages in my lower spine just cried a little bit when they saw your seat to bar drop. Sigh.

    Holy Seat Post Bat Man! I like the bike. But, thanks for reminding me why I keep fighting to stay on traditional horizontal top tubed frames.
    Birth Certificate, Passport, Marriage License Driver's License and Residency Permit all say I'm a Fred. I guess there's no denying it.
