    Hello Timo.

    Going for gloss black this time. Probably won't absorb radar that good.
    BTW. Just PM'ed you.

    my thoughts are:

    1. wow! what an amazing spec for a cross bike. i'm envious.

    2. wow! all that record stuff sure seems like overkill on a race rig. this is not meant as a criticism. if you can do it, do it.
    when walking, just walk. when sitting, just sit. when riding, just ride. above all, don't wobble.

    Velocipedio: you're right off course. I would prefer a Centaur BB, cassette and chain but I get a nice price for the complete gruppo (ex. brakes) from my LBS. The Record BB, cassette and chain will probably wear down quickly and then I will replace them by cheaper stuff.

    Lectron: I replied to your pm

    Over the last week the fork, frame, headset and rims have arrived. I will pick up the gruppo later this week. The stem and seatpost have been ordered and will arrive next week. Then I will have to wait for my next paycheck but that's okay. I have lots of time to buy and build before the new season starts
