I've seen that Ciocc recently, though I don't recall where. It's lovely, though.
Please, whatever you do, don't find one of those beautiful Italian bikes in a ~60cm. I'm afraid the temptation may just kill me! :lol:
Probably on the C&V list, there's a whole thread on it over there. I don't have any Italian frames in 60cm, but I have a pretty cool ~62cm Gitane framesetthat I'll let go cheap. Columbus tubing, standard BB and chrome fork, too! ;)Quote:

I've made a few changes to my Cervelo...
Wow! 85mm @ f/1.2 on a 5D gives paper thin DOF. Oh, beautiful bike btw :).
A big thank you to Norman for all his assistance in helping me swap out the compact for the triple. It will be hard to ever go back. One 30 mile ride and I'm totally spoiled by that 42 ring. 2006 Record 53/42/30 170mm cranks, 2006 Record Bottom Bracket, 2008 Comp (Centaur level) Triple long cage rear and front. Q Factor is wider but not an issue. Dang the Record stuff is smooooth.
I need to start collecting parts for my own triple conversion. Lots of NOS 2006 Ultegra triples on eBay for nothing.
Sounds like a great setup.
I guess it's high time I published my steed (crap picture, but it's all I got for now). Stock '07 Roubaix comp, my one significant upgrade was my tires - the Roubaix Pro's were just too wide for me to be deflating/reinflating my front wheel every time I put them in the back fo my car and hoovered up any available crud from the road. PR3s seem much nicer now.
just picked up this classic from bikemandan. thanks again dude. :beer:

Very nice! I like that front cable stop, too.
This forum really needs a "drool" emoticon thingie. I'd use it frequently. Nice ride BR. A CX bike is on my wish list, but I'm going to build one from the ground up methinks. Easier to slip under the Mrs. radar.
