Very nice. Jamis makes nice bikes.

From the Jensonusa website:

"The '07 Jamis Eclipse is a lightweight road bike that features a blend of carbon fiber and Reynolds 853 to save weight while helping to eliminate road vibrations giving you a smooth and responsive ride. In addition of a lightweight frame that combines Renyolds 853 and Carbon Fiber the Eclipse features a smooth shifting Shimano Ultegra Gruppo with Mavic Ksyrium Equippe wheels.

Carbon Fiber and Reynolds 853 frame, carbon fiber top tube, seat tube, chainstay, Reynolds 853 seamless air hardened down tube extended head tube with reinforced collars, heat treated cromo chainstays."

Thanks and no, it's a Morrison home. The paint job is ala me (note the extremely jagged lines ).

^ You should post it anyway, HybridPilot, several of us started off on hybrids as our addictions were taking hold.

Rebuilt the BF after the crash with some left over parts. Hopefully I can start riding again soon.

Haha caught me. I'm planning on buying a CAAD9 soon. Haven't sold it yet. Looks like I'm keeping it though; for now.

Just got this baby today after months of waiting to get some money for it. It's fully stock save for the 25mm gatorskins.

I want to try clipless (this is my first road style bike, grew up on mtn bikes) but I can't find any shoes that aren't completely hideous.

That is a beautiful bike. Good choice. When are you bringing out this way for a ride?

There's a valve stem cap missing, the front brake is open, I forgot to take the tag off the saddle, and it's in first gear. There's plenty you could have nitpicked.

Thanks.

I've ridden barely at all for a few months, so I'm probably going to need some time to rebuild some strength and endurance. Not that I could keep up before, but I really couldn't now.

Ok, maybe I exaggerated a little bit...

Robert Conrad called and he wants his D-cell back after you took him up on the dare to knock it off.

Here's my bike.

I just got it back from the powdercoaters and assembled the bike yesterday.
It was originally an 09 matte grey windsor hour.

In person the frame is awesome; it looks great when the sun reflects off of it.
If any of you are looking to get your frame/fork powdercoated, give Maas Brothers in Livermore a call.

If so, that's a huge chainring!
