n+1 (I have the disease.) :)

Well, since I can't leave well enough alone, here's what the UPS man brought the other day:

Got a ways to go before it's a bike...I wanted something "speedy" to go along with my Roubaix. '08 Ridley Excalibur, with FSA K-Force crank, Enduro ceramic BB. Thinking SRAM Force/Red drivetrain, not sure yet what kind of wheels (my mechanic is a very good wheelbuilder).

Sweet. I, too, will be looking for more photos, and a ride report.
