I am getting it dialled in right now, so there is no handlebar tape yet, just in case I want to move the brifters around a bit.

    I have a quick question actually, for the mechanics: I think the chain is too long as I am jumping a couple of gears, can I use the magic link thingy that came with the chain (Ultegra 9-speed) to open the chain and then knock a couple of links off? Or is best to just use the chain-tool anywhere on the chain and use a new magic link thingy? Thanks for any help.

    Shimano chains use a specific pin type link. If you got a master link it is prolly not Shimano. Do NOT break Shimano chains the regular way. when you break one you have to knock the link pin all the way out and replace it with the appropriate pin. There are master type links that will work. If it is skipping more likely it is a sticky link than the chain being too long.
    upon closer inspection of the pic...yer chain looks to be too long. With the chain on the big ring and smallest cog a vertical line should pass thru the 2 jockey wheel bolts.

I next to La Carerra so I popped in to use a wrench and I couldn't get the pedal to thread in straight! Do you think I fawked the threads in the crankarm in that short distance? The ones on the pedal looked fine. grrr! Of course, I was so annoying I just torqued it in there anyway which probably will result in me toasting the threads on my eggbeaters as well, but I was *not* walking/ttc'ing it home.
    The pedal will be fine. The Alu crank arm on the other hand will prolly be stripped or cross threaded. I may have a used one for replacement.

    Thanks for the input; yes, that is how I figured out that the chain is too long by seeing it in the photo. I have a couple of master links somewhere in my apartment, I will get it fixed up tomorrow, too gnackered to be bothered now and the bike is still pretty wet. Thanks again.

    Masterlink ftw. The shimano chains with the replacement pin idea is just moronic.

    A black crank would look wicked on there, but looks great none the less what works. Works.

    @cavit8: h0tt wheels!

    Man what a beautiful night. I'm gettin' pretty stoked with this hoody/tshirt only business. Work has been so nuts it's been nice to get a sunny warm ride home. Had to run some foodie errands in the market as well so got to fart around a lil' and take my time getting home.

    I've just transfered some pics from last night to my machine. I'll post a link later - if my sorry old ass doesn't fall asleep early again.

    hah.. indeed. My heart bleeds.. Then again, this bike has turned into The Beater, so it's not like I plan on replacing the crankset with anything nicer. Oh well, Lemond to work tomorrow.

    No, I'll need it to anchor the tinfoil for my home-made aero wheel! After I venture to the 'shwa to pick them up.

    Pinarello needed a new set of shoes

    Not much, some booze references would have been good. I'll work on a followup; now that God of War II has been released, my summer is pretty much shot.

    I have version 1 if you want to try it out. Not a good kids game, though.

    Haven't played myself.

    I've been hibernating these days getting my butt kicked playing Call of Duty 2.

    I think we should start a BF Clan and combat these punk-ass kids...
