I finally pulled the trigger on a new bike.
Competitive cyclist restocked the ridley noah rs 2012 frames and I got the ok (well maybe not an ok but at least an I wont kill you) from the wife.
I ordered the frame and am going to build it up with a zip service course sl cockpit (I found the bars and stem on ebay cheap), going to get an ultegra crank, and use my di2 parts off my giant, and put my giant ultegra parts back on (the giant) so that leaves me having to buy a crank, chain, and brakes for the new bike. I have two sets of wheels already, so I don't need to go there.
I am pretty physched...have been wanting a faster type road frame for a while and will be fun to see the difference between the endurance frame and the ridley. I plan to set the giant back up for centuries and raise the bars back up, and put the cushier saddle back on.
ought to have it built up in a few weeks, I will take some photos once its done.
She did make me sell my cross check, so have to tear that apart and get it on ebay. I think selling it in pieces will be better than assembled. Darn thing doesnt have 50 miles on it lol
