It made me question the review. Anybody else remember that?
    That review is now gone, and as of now there are four owner reviews up there, so maybe it helped. I freely admitted in the review that I didn't own the bike and so of course that invited everyone to question it...it just looks like a sweet deal and that's why I wanted to make people aware of it. I didn't spec a weight although 25 lbs sounds about right, maybe even 24. I'm also thinking of grabbing this with the 20% off sale. That Moto CXX with SRAM Apex is also tempting.

    I just called Nashbar to ask for the standover on the 58. They said it was about 82cm. My Fuji CC is about the same and I'm 6'1 with a 32" inseam.

    Just dropped the hammer. $653 shipped. 20% off coupon code action. I'm going to try and not back over this one with my truck. No decals = Laughing Skull Head Tube Sticker.

    I've got to say, $653 would be a good price just for the basic components. If I were in the market for a 105 groupset, I'd be ordering this bike.

    Count me in, had a similar thought. Just ordered mine. Probably the best deal I've seen on a new bike with 105. Rock on. I may be selling my 2010 Fuji CC, we'll see! Timm357, good luck not backing over it! At least it's steel, right?!

    Foo, I guess they charge for some states and not other. Guess I got lucky here in New York. I found a thread with what seems like some insight into the issue:

    http://www.bikeforums.net/archive/in.../t-504464.html

    Still worth it. . . Even with taxes. I hate taxes.

    And I had to pay the $13 shipping as well.

    If there's a warehouse or retail store in your state, you get to pay tax. Good times! And shipping, well, you have to expect to pay that. $13 is a great price for shipping a bike if you ask me. Time to go ride!

    Out of curiosity, what are they charging you for that?

    sounds like you need to change which holes on the canti mount the springs are in. It can be a pain at first to get it figured out. Heck it can be a pain later on too.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Estimated at about $90. They usually come in less than their estimates, though. Either way, the sale price makes it all good. I can change tubes and clean chains but readily admit I'm no mechanic. I'd be worried about something being wrong and causing an accident or premature part failure. The price includes giving everything a long look and test, adjustment, lube where necessary, parts under $10, ensuring wheels are true, and a fit. I totally trust these guys, they are good people. Ride safe!

    So, even with the LBS fine tuning it comes in at an excellent value. Cool.

    i was playing with the little bitty set screw on each side of the brake to increase/decrease spring tension...is that the proper way?

    the set screw will give you some, but there should be 3 holes on the canti mount on the frame. The end of the spring will go into one of them, but often if you move it to one of the others (either down for the side that's too strong or up for the side that's too weak) you can get a lot of gross adjustments taken care of and then you can do the finer stuff with the centering screw.

    My 23 lbs Soma Double Cross can hang during group rides. It's a good work-out :-P.

    Yeah, I do believe it is an excellent value, even with the LBS tweaks. I will be excited to get some miles on her and see how she feels. Doing a short cancer ride tomorrow (Tour de BBQ in KC) with my young nephew. Will put her through some serious paces on Sunday. Good luck with your set up, Foo.
