    Good to know about the fizik tape.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    I agree.
    there's nothing wrong spending half an hour scrubbing muck out of your white cork tape.

    Does its job well and is alot of fun. Going to go single ring when racing and also maybe just for general use since I never, ever use the 53 ring even on big downhills.

    '08 LeMond Poprad with Bontrager Race Lite compact crankset (50/34), Ultegra pedals, and CXP23/Tiagra wheels. It's got a different stem on it, too, but I'm not sure of the brand. It was inexpensive, bought it at a bike store to test out the angles. It says "CUN" on the side, I think. *shrug*

    HAH! You are a demigod of some sort. With that hint I was able to find it online; it's a Kalloy UNO stem. Yay!

    no, I'm mere mortal. easy, I once used the exact same stem... it's inexpensive, yes.

    That Soma looks great. The straight-bladed fork and the color just make it look better than every Soma I've ever seen (including a DC frame I used to own).

    I had that bike (frame) and sold it
    Not at all one of my brightest moments...I loved that bike...making a new build as we speak...Not the same frame of course, but pretty identical......

    I've already posted this elsewhere in the CX forum, but thought I'd add it to the list.

    I never posted pics of this conversion while I had it:







    It's gone now. It was just sort of an interim bike used to help me figure out what size/setup I liked before I dropped money on something nice.

    Also this was the initial build of my Iro Rob Roy:



    It's totally different now, that was just an interim build, really. It now has different wheels, bars, stem, seatpost, seat, rear brake, fork... also I lost that tape on the top tube. I was just seeing what that would be like. I need to take some new pics.

    The Trek was much nicer IMO. I'd be sad to see it leave.

    Than what? The iro? Hell no. The trek was hi-ten except for the seattube. The iro wasn't a replacement anyway, I got rid of the trek and put the good parts I was using on a motobecane fantom cross frame I got cheap.

    Awright, the Rob Roy as it is now w/ new Kinesis fork:



    The cockpit.



    Here's my Motobecane. It's got a 105 derailleur in the rear, dura-ace up front, bar-end shifters, open-pro/ultegra wheels. It's set up in "training" mode I guess. Haven't raced it before, just the Iro.



    And my wife's Motobecane we got nearly new for $300 on craigslist. Put a bigger cassette and xt derailleur on the rear and a triple up front. She's got some open-pro ultegra/105 wheels for it too.

    Amos, Just curious how tall are you? I'm 6'7'' and I'm shopping around for a bike and want to know if there is any hope for me fitting on a stock frame.
