    Nice bike SIR!
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    Very pretty. Blue is my favorite bike color and I like it with the white accents.

    It is certainly is a great bike and I hope those drop bars work out for you.

    Think you are going to like this one.

    Well done and a good choice.

    Congratulations George. I wasn't sure if you actually bought it.
    If I ever go carbon fiber, it will be something like that. Good choice. A toast to you.

    Nice! A buddy of mine just bought that exact same bike just to make me mad. So I'm going to get a new full squishy MTB just to get even.

    That's a nice bike. I especially like how it is nothing at all like the bikes you have been pondering buying for so long. Sometimes you just have to go with the feeling at the moment.

    Is that bike really levitating? You better get some counterweights.

    Thank's everybody, I laid awake a lot of nights to finally come up with this. It came down to, I have a bike I can tour on, now I need something to race around with, when I feel like it. I test rode this bike a few months back and I really liked it, but I had something else in mind. After trying some other bikes I kept thinking about this one, I tried it again, end of story. I wonder how it will look with trekking bars?

    Give it a good shot with the drops. You can always go to moustache or trekking bars in the future. And if you do change the drops out for something else, you've got to repost pics!

    I wonder if anyone makes a carbon fiber trekking bar?
